Proofreading and editing for authors

Whatever your level of experience as an author, your books will require the skills of a professional editor and/or proofreader. Whether you’re looking to self-publish a novel or send a sample to agents with the hope of finding a publisher, your writing needs to truly shine. Errors will distract readers and will lead to negative online reviews, which could seriously hamper your chances of succeeding in the long run.

At Full Media Ltd, we have been proofreading and editing novels, short stories and children’s books for far longer than we’ve been publishing our own, having also traded as Full Proof since 2004. We can provide the extra pair of eyes required to spot errors and any possible weaknesses in your writing.

Our services for authors include proofreading and copy-editing the following types of documents:

  • Novels
  • Short stories
  • Poetry
  • Biographies
  • Manuscripts
  • Film and TV scripts

Our services are bespoke so there is no fixed rate. When you send us your work, we’ll evaluate it and work with you to decide which level of editing you require. Contact us today for a quote or for more information.

“I am a first-time author and having written a number of short stories with illustrations, I was unsure what to do next. I contacted Nick at Full Media seeking advice. The initial telephone call absolutely dispelled any fears I had regarding publishing. The emails and occasional phone calls kept me informed along the way as the proofreading and editing took place. Nick listened to how I would like the book to look and he prepared the stories and illustrations for publishing, producing a book that has excelled my expectations. Throughout, the advice and support given was excellent. Nick and all at Full Media were totally professional and understanding. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you for a most enjoyable journey.”
