Don’t just take

my word for it.

“David has professionally edited four of my books and I’ve been delighted with the results every time. He has a keen eye for what works and what doesn’t and has excellent communication skills. In each book he identified passages to be improved and coached me in how that could be achieved. His feedback is always well-rounded and to the point. David has a collaborative style that is both supportive and encouraging.”

Rob Ashman, No. 1 Bestselling Author

“Working with an editor can be uncomfortable, even intimidating. Not with David. From the beginning of the process to the end, his stated goal is to get the best from my writing. And he does. Less gifted editors – I know because I’ve met them – attempt to shape a manuscript in their likeness, rather than bringing focus and – where needed – direction to what is already on the page. David brings both. I came away from the experience completely satisfied and a little bit wiser.”

Owen Mullen, No. 1 Bestselling Author

“As an editor, David is a pleasure to work with. Not only did he give valuable comment, suggestion and guidance on the manuscript for my novel ‘Stench’, but he also provided me with an editorial summary that was easy to read and digest. The manuscript was edited carefully and the feedback was thoughtful, with constructive positives given, as well as help in identifying areas that needed greater attention. The straightforward and no nonsense approach David uses is something I greatly appreciate. I’m so proud of what we achieved together.”

AB Morgan, critically-acclaimed author

“Working with David is always a fantastic experience. He cuts through the gristle and gets to the heart of your manuscript, providing an incisive critique of everything from overarching plot structure to syntax. He really knows his stuff, and when it comes to seeing the wood for the trees, the perspective he lends is always invaluable.”

M.R. Mackenzie, critically-acclaimed Author

“David proved invaluable as the editor for my debut novel, She Lies Hidden. He is a highly skilled and talented editor. I greatly appreciated his insightful and constructive feedback which both motivated and encouraged me. Crucially, he possesses a significant amount of knowledge in terms of the more technical elements of creative writing such as plotting, pacing, dialogue, description and story telling per say. I would definitely work with him again.”

CM Stephenson, critically-acclaimed author

“David has edited three of my psychological thrillers . He is able to judge the overall shape and pace of a novel extremely well and has given me new radical insights regarding the endings of two of my novels. The result has certainly been better books. He’s great at tidying up the clunky bits and smoothing out clutter. I appreciate his straightforward approach; he’s very clear about why he’s suggested changes and does it in a warm and encouraging way.”

AJ Waines, international bestselling author

“I consider myself very fortunate to have had David edit my debut novel. He is a superb editor, with a great eye for detail, and also able to advise on structural/ plot issues. He was quick, efficient and reliable, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him. ”

CS Savage, critically-acclaimed author

“David served as editor of my most recent novel. His skill and experience in this area allowed him to offer detailed and helpful analysis of the manuscript. David’s corrections, observations and advice are immensely helpful, and ultimately greatly enhanced the finished novel. I would therefore highly recommend his services”

NM Brown, critically-acclaimed author

“David provided very thorough comments on both style and plot, as well as copy editing and proofreading. He was able to point out quirks such as words I tend to overuse, which has been useful with my writing ever since. His feedback was very helpful – clearly explaining why he was suggesting the changes he had. I was very lucky to work with David and would happily do so again”

Rebecca Muddiman, critically-acclaimed author

“It was great working with David. He’s very thorough and professional and made the whole editing experience hugely pleasurable.”
