Diversity reading

If you’re writing characters with marginalised identities and experiences different from your own, it’s important to get things right—not only to make sure that those characters come across as authentic and convincing, but also to ensure that your book doesn’t perpetuate harmful tropes or stereotypes.

I read manuscripts that feature:

  • characters who are non-binary, genderqueer, agender or transmasculine;
  • characters who are on the aromantic and/or asexual spectrum.
  • I will give you detailed feedback on the portrayal of such characters in your work and provide you with guidance and further resources, where necessary.

    £249 for manuscripts up to 90,000 words.
    (If your manuscript is longer, please get in touch for a no-obligation quote.)

    Submission package edit

    If you’re planning to submit your manuscript to agents and publishers, there’s a lot riding on your query letter, synopsis and the pitches that you might make at writers’ conferences or online. I will look at your submission materials and give you tips on how to write about your novel concisely and compellingly.

    I will give you feedback on:

  • your query letter (up to one page);
  • your synopsis (up to three pages);
  • three pitches (up to 300 words each), so that you have suitable variations at hand for different scenarios.
  • If you would like any of these services separately, or would like to mix and match with another editing package, please get in touch for a no-obligation quote.

    Marketing package edit

    If you’re planning to self-publish your novel, readers will consider your all-important blurb, the pull quotes you use in marketing, and your author biography when deciding whether to read your book. I will look at these materials and advise you on how to spark readers’ interest in a handful of powerful sentences.

    I will give you feedback on:

  • your blurb (up to 200 words);
  • three pull quotes you have chosen from your manuscript;
  • your author biography (up to 500 words).
  • If you would like any of these services separately, or would like to mix and match with another editing package, please get in touch for a no-obligation quote.
