Your story. Your voice. That won't change.


Have you written a novel that you dream of publishing but feel slightly overwhelmed by the next stage? I specialise in editing romance, crime and literary fiction and helping indie authors create books that readers will love.

If you aren't sure what to expect from the editing process, let me put your mind at rest. Many of my clients felt exactly the same. But I’ll be with you every step of the way, providing positive and constructive feedback. I believe in editing with empathy and working together. It's my job to polish your writing so it flows smoothly, allowing you to concentrate on producing great stories ready for self publishing or submitting to agents.

Are you confused by the different levels of editing (frankly who wouldn’t be)? Then click on the image to download my booklet explaining all you need to know. It’s free and there’s no obligation, and it might just help make your decision a bit easier.

Still not sure what you need?

Why not get in touch for an initial chat? If this is your first novel or if you're a seasoned writer, I'd love to hear from you. I want to make things as painless as possible.


Deborah is such an effortless pleasure to work with. Thoroughly professional and committed, a great eye for detail and an acute sensitivity for what will help a piece of writing shine in its best light. Both creative and in tune with the author's needs/vision when copy editing, and methodical and thorough whilst proofreading. Deborah is a real asset to have on your editorial team. Great with authors and very reliable when it comes to meeting (tight) deadlines, I have no hesitation in recommending Deborah Blake's editing services.
