Make sure you have the right words in the right order – use an experienced and accredited editor at any stage of your project. Professional editing ensures that you’re actually saying what you think you’re saying. If you muddle your affects and effects, if you’re not sure how to make your pronouns and verbs agree, if you’re wondering why commas were ever invented, you need A story to tell. Compassionate and thoughtful, we’ll make sure your great ideas remain, while improving their reach. It’s that simple.

Check out some of my recent editing jobs:

The Current, novel, Yannick Thoraval

Yannick Thoraval came to A story to tell with an ambitious novel with themes of overwork, international cooperation and climate change. He was after a copy edit that kept one eye on any structural issues. The result is The Current a fine novel that spans two generations, three cultures and the Pacific Ocean.
