Services for publishers

I have twenty years of continuous copy-editing and proofreading experience.

I work on

• educational textbooks and other resources
• academic books, including multi-author volumes
• general non-fiction, including illustrated books.

I am experienced in using Word's editing tools, including templates, styles and macros. I have expertise in PDF mark-up, and can also mark up on hard copy using BSI symbols if required.

I have worked on over 250 titles, many of them for educational publishers such as Hodder Education and HarperCollins.

For academic publishers I often handle projects from copy-editing to final proofs. I have extensive experience of liaising with authors.

I work on non-fiction, including illustrated books. Clients include Thames & Hudson, Birlinn and Short Books.

My areas of expertise include

• education (textbooks, study guides and resources on social subjects, English and art & design)
• history (ancient, medieval, modern, merchant & maritime)
• archaeology
• literature (classics, English, Semitic languages)
• management and business
• lifestyle and mind-body-spirit
• popular non-fiction, including Scottish interest, local history, humour, travel, general knowledge.
