Price guidelines are on the relevant pages of this website, so do please check these first. I aim to be flexible, so if the services outlined don’t quite fit your requirements, or if you’d like to discuss what can be done within your budget, please ask. Some form of editing is always going to be better than none, and I can advise on the best use of your money and time.

Where possible, please include a brief summary or synopsis, approximate word count, a sample of your work (ideally from the beginning and middle of the manuscript), timescale or deadline, and any other information which you think may be relevant. If your work contains scenes of a graphic or explicit nature, then please include contextual examples. And if you’ve completed your manuscript, please send it – I won’t read it all, but I will be able to assess random chapters, which will help me to give you a more accurate (no-obligation) quote

If you’re interested in working together on your manuscript, please drop me a line sooner rather than later. My calendar is usually full at least three months in advance. However, I recognise the need for flexibility, and manuscripts can take longer to complete than planned – plus life has a habit of getting in the way. So, it’s always worth getting in touch to see what’s possible. 

I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can. My office hours are flexible (within reason!) but please bear in mind I am in Spain which is in the Central European Time (CET) zone (UTC + 1).

Please click to view or download my terms and conditions and privacy policy. Anything you send will, of course, be treated with the utmost confidentiality. 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

    What authors say . . .

    ‘After several years of writing and rewriting my first crime thriller novel, I had reached an impasse. Hiring Nicky to do a combined edit was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. To anyone out there who is looking for an editor, you couldn’t be in a better or safer pair of hands.’

    ‘After a couple of years working on my fifth novel, I had lost track of what I was trying to achieve. Nicky appeared to understand the book better than I did, and she gave me the encouragement, suggestions and practical solutions I needed for tackling the subsequent edit.’

    ‘I had never imagined how much work would be involved converting my relatively crude manuscript into something that looks professional, and I can’t thank Nicky enough. As a result of her input and comments, I am supremely confident I have a much better book.’​
