It was great fun to copy edit Cathryn Petit's charming novel, A Spell of Wanderlust, the second in the Sisters of the Silk Veil series.

Copy Editor

It was great working with Cathryn Petit on her prequel to 'Sisters of the Silk Veil'. I helped Cathryn sharpen her writing and ensure the diverse parts of the story fit together cohesively. I highly recommend this short story. It's empathetic, claustrophobic and gives a stark insight into how easy it is to fall into a negative spiral.

It was a delight working with S.M. Baker on A Shard of Amber Light. This is a highly original YA epic, set in a future America under Eastern rule. Well-developed world, great characters and settings, can't wait to see what the sequel will bring...

I was one of the authors selected for publication in Issue 11 of The Mechanics' Institute Review. It gave me useful insight being able to work on different sides of the editorial process for different editions.

This project gave me experience in every stage of the publication process, from conceptualizing the issue and deciding which submissions to publish, through to helping individual authors shape their texts and completing the final proofs for typesetting and publication.

English Editor at Book on a Tree

My role at Book on a Tree covered many disciplines and responsibilities. The most enjoyable was working directly with the manuscripts. It was my responsibility to vet English manuscripts coming in, deciding which we should develop and which needed the authors to work on further before we could consider them.
