Reader Reports

If you’re a writer ready to submit your manuscript to an agent, or if you’re an agent thinking about sending a proposal to a publisher, George can help. Among other editorial services, George reviews manuscripts and produces comprehensive reader reports to highlight your book’s strengths and weaknesses. This service is ideal for writers unsure of their manuscript’s potential, and for authors looking for serious beta readers. And if you suspect you need an edit but don’t know where to focus your attention, a reader report can be a vital tool in understanding how your book will be received by a real audience. This service is also a help for agents bogged down with more submissions than they can fairly assess.

George will read either a portion of a manuscript – as little as the opening chapter - or the entire text. He will then write a report to assess the quality of the writing, the narrative, and the premise, and to offer a genuine reader’s first impressions of the book. This a valuable service for both fiction and non-fiction authors and is useful in providing direction for subsequent edits.

 

Editing

George is an experienced writer, and he has worked on numerous books as an editor or editorial consultant. If you have a manuscript which isn’t getting traction from agents or publishers, or if you’ve finished writing but your book isn’t quite there yet, George can help. Depending on the project, George can provide line edits, developmental edits, or a simple copy edit. In all cases, his intention is to make your book as good as it can be, with the tightest possible prose and a story which really sings.

George edits collaboratively, working with his clients to make sure their vision isn’t lost to the editing process. And his goal at the end of it is always to help you find the publisher and readership your work deserves.

George is an expert at polishing texts while preserving the author’s authenticity and voice, and his editorial experience has already helped authors land publishers for the books they had always dreamed of writing. George works on all kinds of books, and he has no fear of tight deadlines. If you need an editor to realise your publishing goals, don’t hesitate to get in touch.  

 

Ghostwriting

George is a passionate and committed ghostwriter, with the publishing record to prove it. He is efficient, and discreet, and has experience working with clients to tell their stories – starting with the germ of an idea and finishing with an original and well-written book ready to hit the shelves. His projects are often handled under NDA, and he understands that everyone will have their own idea of what the ideal author-ghostwriter relationship should be. If you have already started writing your story, George can work with you to add some editorial polish and turn your draft into a completed and publication-ready manuscript. Or if you don’t know where to begin with your book, he can work with you to develop and write your story from nothing.
