Manuscript & Book Editing Services

Although Hester works primarily as a historian and ghostwriter, she also offers a range of book editing services. Typically, clients have a draft manuscript and are looking for a fresh pair of eyes and some outside feedback on their text. Hester usually offers a detailed line edit, alongside a big picture book analysis. The book analysis is a one-two page report, with suggestions for clients on how they might strengthen what they have written. The report might point out, for example, where the client has assumed knowledge that the reader wouldn’t know. The report might equally suggest where more or less information on a particular passage would be beneficial. Hester’s manuscript and book editing services aim to enhance the readability and presentation of the text, and therefore to help the client prepare the manuscript for submission to UK literary agencies.

Book analysis and editing service: £1000.
