Editing Service


Please click on image for more information about Alison’s Editing Service.

Need an editor? Alison’s Editing Service is now open for business. I charge £5 per 1,000 words (£1.25 per 250 words) rounded down to the nearest 250. If your manuscript is 50,000 words or more, the first 5,000 words will be edited FREE OF CHARGE.

I have experience in editing fiction, and have had positive feedback from the authors with whom I’ve worked:

Alison Jack did a wonderful job editing The Martlet. She did a meticulous job on the grammar without taking away from my voice. Even more importantly, she found some points that made complete sense in my head, but didn’t make sense to her as a reader. So now I know what to expand on and a few places to cut. This was something I was very concerned about. Her comments were easy to understand and she was a joy to work with.

 Elizabeth Guizzetti Author of ‘The Martlet’.
‘Great editing service,’ says Sophia Valentine, author ‘Life of an Ibiza Worker’ – click here for more.

    • I’m delighted to hear I’ve been recommended! I’d be happy to edit shorts as long as they’re works of fiction, but please be aware that manuscripts of less than 50,000 words are not eligible for the ‘Try before you buy’ offer.
