She challenges you on structure and logic, helping you to create a tighter, cleaner plot, while also honing in on those grammatical oversights and inevitable typos. Her technical and craft knowledge result in an holistic and detailed assessment of your manuscript that leaves you inspired to tackle that dreaded rewrite.”

Azra Algaic, author of Not Like My Mother 

“I was delighted to discover that Edwina’s talented professional editing services not only improved the quality of my book, but also subtly taught me things about how I write and how to improve in the future.  I really valued the extra questions she would pose that made me dig deeper and expand what I had written. She added the zing to my book.”

  1. Hi Edwina 🙂

    I met you at the Atherton Workshop last month and we had a 1-on-1 afterwards. I am in the process of publishing my memoir ‘Boy of Steel’. Not sure if you remember me? Anyway, I am now up to printing stage, I’m just wondering if you can refer me to a good printing company?

    And I can’t recall… do you load your own ebook onto Amazon or do you go through a publishing house to do so?
