I'm Hollie. Specialist fiction editor

& proofreader, for independent authors.



My non-judgemental manuscript critiques are specially designed for independent authors who are ready to take their writing to a professional level.


My Services.

As a self-published author, I know how daunting it can be to share your precious work with an editor. That's why I focus on prioritising your voice and intention in my edits. 

It's not my job to tell you how to write your book. I'm simply here to offer expert guidance to help you realise your potential.


For authors who are determined to write their best work. I will provide substantive feedback on your book that prioritises your vision and enhances your connection to readers.


This is a non-judgemental manuscript critique, designed to help you refine your work at content level. You will receive a detailed analysis of your plot, characterisation, world building, pacing, conflict, genre and more, plus professional guidance to help you improve.



A final quality check to ensure your text is squeaky clean.

If your book or short story has been thoroughly edited and you're happy with your work at content level, I will be a fresh set of eyes to complete a final tidy-up of any copy errors, before publication.


Efficient, honest and fantastic value!

Wow! What a professional pleasure working with Hollie. Efficient, honest, and for a fledgling writer, fantastic value. It has been my ongoing frustration to find an intelligent, yet savvy editor who can read and constructively guide your work while respecting and maintaining your voice. Highly recommended and I hope to have Hollie’s guidance through many more books.
