Service Description

I offer professional and competitively priced publishing services, including:
Editing
Formatting for print and digital versions
Proofreading
Cover Design
Marketing
Administration of Distribution Process

All the above with an emphasis on consultation and communication with clients.

I also participated in the Society for Editors and Proofreaders' mentoring scheme to gain experience before beginning work in the 'real world'. Therefore my clients can be assured of the quality and integrity of my work.

I have been working for myself since 2009 and am lucky enough to have many repeat clients, with whom I have built up some very positive working relationships.

Reviews from existing clients include the following:

Would I recommend Heddon...
