Genre specialists help you achieve your writing potential

Although it can feel uncomfortable to hand over your carefully written manuscript to an unknown editor, most authors simply cannot effectively edit their own work. And while it may feel as if you’re allowing your voice to be changed, or that you just don’t need editing, the opposite is almost always true. Our team of highly experienced editors work with your tone and style, building on it and refining your work from a professional perspective. We have genre specialists on hand to ensure that no matter what the tone of your book, the right editor will be assigned to you. From thrillers to children’s books; sci-fi to biography, our team have the editing experience to support your creative flare.

Collaborating for literary excellence

We use the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word to present edited files, allowing you easily see, in a different colour, the amendments we are suggesting. You will be able to accept or reject changes as you see fit, and read the manuscript in either the fully edited or original state. This allows for a collaboration between author and editor, ensuring that your story is being told in the best way it can be; increasing your chances of positive reviews. Our authors are always very excited to receive their latest work in its fully edited state. It uncovers the true greatness of a great manuscript and prevents you from falling foul of mistakes that will later become evident and affect sales.

We offer various editorial services to help you perfect your manuscript, from a light proofread to a full ghost-writing project.


This service checks for errors of spelling, punctuation and grammar. It also highlights typographical errors, omissions or repetitions in your writing and points out any obvious breaks in the continuity of the piece. Basically, it finds mistakes before your book goes to print.


This service covers all of the above and more. It’s a sensitive service, designed to retain, and be true to, the author’s ‘voice’. As well as the aforementioned proofreading checks, copyediting addresses the flow and style of your writing. Is your writing clear, concise and unambiguous? Does it always make sense? Is the text organised in the most logical manner? Are there any inconsistencies in your use of plot, characterisation or dialogue, for example? Copyediting moulds your writing to make it the best it can be; it makes your book come alive.


Not everyone is equipped to be a writer, but that shouldn’t stop them from becoming a novelist. Some people have a great story in them, but not the time to get it written down. Others are simply unhappy with their own attempts to portray the story that they can see so clearly in their mind. The ghostwriting service offers a wide range of options for a story-teller to work with an experienced Spiffing writer to collaboratively create a full manuscript. As publisher you will retain full copyright over the manuscript.

Manuscript Appraisals

Would you like feedback on your manuscript? Our editing team has decades of experience working with manuscripts at all stages of development, and this service gives tailored feedback, designed to help you move forward towards the best writing of which you are capable. Our feedback can focus on characters, plot, themes, style, or anything that you want us to focus on.
