Help for independent writers and self-publishers
Welcome! I'm Louise Harnby, a specialist fiction proofreader and copyeditor. I work with independent and self-publishing authors to bring clarity and consistency to their books.
And since you’re here, I’m assuming you need help with your novel.
Perhaps you’re a little nervous about working with an editor. Don’t worry – it’s perfectly normal. The good news? You can now relax. You’ve found an advocate – someone who's on your side.
Edit with elegance, honour the voice, respect the journey ... those are my promises. I’ll help tighten and smooth your book at sentence level while implementing standard grammar, punctuation and spelling, allowing for regional variation and natural speech, of course. All the while, I'll respect your voice, the world you've built and the characters who live within it.
I welcome the opportunity to work with beginning, developing and mature writers. Drop me a line to find out how I can help you.
