Book Helpline works with independent authors and small publishers. Our goal is to help authors make their book the best it can be; engaging for the reader, fluent, and grammatically sound. We’re as keen as you are to make your book a success!
We offer a full range of editorial services. Generally, we recommend beginning with a story feedback round to help in preparing a revised and more polished draft. Once you’re happy with the story, we’ll copy edit and proofread the manuscript so it’s ready to be published. In addition, we can format the text, help you find a cover, and publish your book via Amazon. We’re approachable and friendly and always willing to go the extra mile.
Book Helpline is registered in the Netherlands (company number 58495452). We have a fixed team of experienced freelance editors from the UK, US, and Australia, who are writers themselves. The founder and senior editor is Judith Henstra, PhD. Editors Ginny Glass and Joanna Booth answer inquiries from the US and the UK, respectively. Nick Hill is responsible for the website and marketing. Our editors can be contacted directly if you need to discuss something about your edit.
We’ve edited a wide variety of publications. These include fiction and non-fiction as well as memoirs, short stories, and children’s books. A selection of these publications can be found on our Edited Books page.
