Nicky Lovick

I offer a variety of editorial services: editorial assessment, developmental editing, copy-editing and proofreading. No matter what stage your manuscript is at, I can help. If you’ve just finished it (well done!), I can take a look to advise you how much more editorial work is required. If you’ve been through a round or two of rewrites, perhaps a developmental edit is needed? I look at plot, structure, characterisation, narrative pace, sense of place, as well as other aspects. What works, what doesn’t and – most importantly – how to fix it. A copy-edit will pick up typos, bad grammar and punctuation and iron out inconsistencies. A proofread will give it that final professional polish – whether you’re going to self-publish or submit via the traditional publishing route. I pride myself on a friendly, honest editing service, drawing on over twenty years’ editorial (freelance and in-house) experience.

Currently working for Penguin, Random House, Transworld, BBC Books, Orion, John Blake, Blink, Bonnier, Quercus, Profile and Atlantic, among many others.

Genres include Women’s Commercial Fiction, Crime, Classics, Cookery, Memoir, Celebrity, General Non-Fiction and Illustrated.
