Freelance Editing & Reviewing

I am humbly honoured that you are interested in my freelance services. Having earned a Diploma in Applied Writing (Level 5) through NorthTec Whangarei in 2016, I am qualified to offer help with line editing, copyediting, and proofreading. I have also been a book reviewer for over two years, having worked with publishers such as HarperCollins New Zealand, Penguin Random House New Zealand, and Hachette New Zealand, along with self published authors such as Tammy Ferebee (Outsiders) and A.L. Terry (Darkened Shadows: The Call).
I have always found my English skills to extend beyond the average reader or writer. I love working with people who are as passionate about literature as I am and I hope that my skills will be of use to you.

What I offer:

• I provide a full edit of any short story, flash fiction, essay, manuscript, etc. This includes checking for spelling/punctuation/grammatical errors, repetitive sentences, word choices, inconsistencies, and giving constructive criticism on anything I feel might need slight tweaking. Prices will depend on the type of editing you require (line editing, copy editing, or proofreading).
• Book reviewing for self published authors and publishers with sponsorship opportunities. My reviews are either written for my blog or filmed for my YouTube channel. Prices will vary depending on which you would prefer or if you would like both.
• Reviewing book related items and boxes. If you have a product that you would like me to review but not sure about my terms, please contact me anyway (This would also include makeup or clothes that could be used to dress up like a book character - I love creative videos so send me your ideas!).
• Beta reading! I am always noticing typos within printed books and sometimes I wish I were the one who had checked for these mistakes before the final prints went out. I would love to be a beta reader for anyone who might require someone with a keen eye.

Terms and Conditions:

• All reviews are my 100% honest opinion. I will not accept an offer to lie to my readers/viewers.

• I prefer to be sent physical books and book related items that I may keep, but I will consider ebook copies if the author cannot send a physical copy (physical copies of books will have a better chance of being seen in my future videos as I film in front of my shelves and pull books out for multiple purposes). No extra charges are required for this condition. I am not responsible for shipping costs or lost packages.

• My services are available to anyone in any country where payment is accepted through Paypal. Within New Zealand, I will only accept payment through Paypal and Internet banking. No cheques or cash.

• Student discounts are accepted with a valid form of I.D presented. A photocopy or simple photo will suffice if sent electronically.

• I am open to offers from any trade publishers who might be in need of my services for editing or reviewing. I currently work with HarperCollins NZ, Penguin Random House NZ, Hachette NZ, Allen & Unwin NZ, Lighthouse PR, and Mary Egan Publishing for reviewing purposes.

• I don't charge for my services if I contact a person or a company myself. It is my request, therefore it would be unprofessional of me to demand payment.

If you are interested in what I can offer you then please contact me with details about your project and I will provide you with a quote.
