Project management
I take projects from unedited manuscript to printed copy, or any part thereof, e.g. copy-editing, clearing copyright permissions, image research, applying for ISBNs, design/layout/typesetting, sourcing printers, obtaining estimates, liaising with authors and other stakeholders throughout the process and checking final proofs.

For an estimate for copy-editing, proofreading or project management, please get in touch by email or via the contact form with a short description of your project or a contents list, a sample chapter or about 1000 words of your text, the total word count and the time scale for completion.
