how can I help you

Editing Services

Developmental Editing

Your second draft is done and you can’t wait to share it with the whole world. Is it really ready though? Let me help with characterization, structure, general story arc, consistency, plot-holes, rhythm, and flow.


Grammar, punctuation and spelling might need one more coat of polish before publication: get rid of that repetition, fix that typo. Is that a missing comma?

Copy & Line Editing

I’ll go over every line, checking your manuscript for grammar mistakes and inconsistencies in order to make it shine.

Beta Reading

Do you need someone to read your book and give you feedback? Let me have a look!

Sensitivity Reading

Dealing with sensitive topics? My areas of expertise cover ADHD, Anxiety and LGBTQ+ issues.

Bespoke Editorial Service

You can’t afford an editor but you want your book to shine? For a basic fee I can offer you guidance, with tips and tricks. Bespoke is the type of editing tailored to your unique needs.

‘Bookshelves and Teacups did a marvelous job doing the copy editing for our Anthology – Autumn, a Season. There were 20 stories and ten authors. The stories were from horror to romance to fantasy. Some were long short stories (80k) some were short (500k). And with the manuscript being so long it took them a minimal amount of time to go through it.I would definitely recommend them for any genre.’

“Tissie beta read my contemporary romance manuscript. With a quick turnaround, she pointed out what was working and what needed improvements in a clear, constructive manner. She also corrected grammar usage, syntax and sentence structure. Her feedback will help me with my next round of revisions!”

Tom Adamson


‘Tissie is a fantastic beta reader with amazing attention to detail. She asked questions that not only strengthened the plot, but also improved the depth of the characters. She has a good eye for punctuation and layout. I cannot recommend her enough!’
