Do you have a messy, untamed but brilliant manuscript, outline or even just an idea for a book? I offer critique, editing and proofing services to refine, polish and perfect your book, idea or work in progress. I offer marketing and publishing advice as part of the editing package, and support all the authors I work with after publication, helping to promote their books via my book blog and social media networks.
Here's what my clients are saying:
“Special thanks to my wonderful copy editor and proofreader, Karen Banes, who arguably did more for this book by taking words away than I did by adding them! I’m extremely grateful to Karen for going above and beyond because of her passion for the subject matter, and I look forward to working with her again.”
- Kirsty Stuart, Author of How To Start A Travel Blog And Make Money
Karen has been amazing to work with. She really spent time with each paragraph, making sure it was readable from an outsider's point of view. She even took time to help me out after we had finished working together. She really cares about your work and your success, and that's what you need, I believe, to make life easier :)
