Copy Editing and Proofreading

I have advised and proofread for major publishing and broadcasting companies in four continents.

I am happy to offer you

Copy editing, to bring manuscripts to print-readiness

Proofreading - that final check on every last detail before the first print-run

Help and advice if you're an author at work on a manuscript or a publisher seeking an expert opinion.

Attention to detail makes all the difference! An embarrassed publisher had to destroy thousands of copies of a new book after confusing 'putrefy' and 'purify.' A proofreader would have saved the day!   

I advise, proofread and copy edit in the areas where I am widely published - mainly children's and educational books (as featured here). However, I have qualified associates with expertise in fiction and humanities. Foremost among them is my novelist son Robin Triggs, author of Night Shift and Human Resources.

In the words of a recent customer,

'How impressed I've been with the thoroughness of your proof-reading and editorial comments.

You're a pleasure to work with - meticulous, reliable and excellent value for money.'

We're old enough to remember paper but normally work with digital copy, The following examples show how we've helped two of our authors to make their work even better, ready for publication.

Above, you can see the clear-cut way we suggest corrections. Below, you can see how we bring our practised judgment to bear on the finer points of an author's work. (Most work benefits from both, of course.)

Please use the contact form below; or, for a speedy quote, send the work or a representative sample to [email protected]
