Submissions & availability

It is likely that I shall be working on an existing project at the time of an enquiry. As a rule, I work on one novel at any one time (this does not apply to short stories; I can usually fit these in at a week's notice.) The stage of editing I am working on will dictate my availability for a new project. After a structural edit, a client may need to work on their typescript before copy-editing can commence. This could give me enough time to carry out a structural edit on another typescript.

You may find this bookings chart useful. Please do not let provisional bookings stop you from contacting me, as these may change.

With regards to timescales, I try to accommodate client wishes (as long as they are reasonable). In traditional publishing, six weeks are generally spent copy-editing and four weeks proofreading). This does not include the time required for structural editing, which due to the back and forth between editor and client makes it open-ended.

I accept submissions from UK residents who meet the following criteria:

All fictional work is considered, and all fiction enquiries responded to.
