Hello, I’m Gina, a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).
You can rely on me to give you a personal service and my full attention to your words.
I’ve completed rigorous training with the CIEP in both proofreading and copyediting, passing every course with either a distinction or a merit.
I've proofread and copyedited fiction and non-fiction, with genres including outdoor literature, biography/memoir, contemporary fiction, self-help, LGBT, political and academic works, young-adult and poetry.
With a BA Hons in English Literature from Cardiff University, you'll never find me without a book on the go.
Previously, as senior communications manager in Estyn, the Education and Training Inspectorate for Wales, I was responsible for creating engaging and influential messages that stood up to scrutiny from headteachers and other education professionals.
As a new author I realised there’s so much more to presenting a manuscript professionally for final book design. This is where Gina really helped and delivered.
She prepared my manuscript meticulously and also highlighted a few areas for clarification. It was the final and very reassuring stage in the process for me.
I can recommend Gina's approach - a telephone conversation to understand the requirements followed up by a clear timetable.
D. Wild, author of Storm Seer, Storm Bringer and Storm Viking
