I prefer shorter assignments (up to about 20–30,000 words) in the following subject areas:

  • (local) history
  • nature & the environment
  • health sciences
  • education/learning materials
  • special educational needs
  • design & typography
  • art & craft

Even if your project doesn't fit this description, I may be able to help – just get in touch.

Project management
I can help you take your book from unedited manuscript to printed copy, including copy-editing, applying for ISBNs, design/layout/typesetting, sourcing printers, obtaining estimates, and liaising with printers during production.

For an estimate for copy-editing or project management, please contact me 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.
