Louise Harnby | Proofreader & Copyeditor
Fiction, esp. crime, thrillers, mystery, and suspense
I specialize in line editing, copy editing, and proofreading fiction for independent authors, particularly those who are self-publishing in the genres of crime, thriller, mystery, and suspense.
Perhaps your writing needs smoothing to ensure it engages your reader. Or maybe industry-standard grammar, spelling, and punctuation are your sticking points.
I’ll work carefully through your narrative and dialogue, all the time editing with elegance, honoring style and voice, and respecting the journey you’re on. Your right to write will underpin that process.
Clarity and consistency will be key but I’ll never lose sight of the fact that this is your book, your story.
To assist you on your writing journey, I curate a library of free self-publishing resources aimed at beginner writers: http://bit.ly/Self-Publishers
I set up my editorial business in 2006 and have completed over 570 proofreading and copyediting projects for independent authors and mainstream publishers. My portfolio includes the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Visit from the Goon Squad and an anniversary facsimile edition of probably the most famous Gothic horror novel ever published, Dracula.
