Support Indie Authors


This is a simple but genuine shout-out to my clients, to let them know that they are always appreciated, and never far from my mind, both professionally and personally - I have your back. You know I'm here for you - an email away, or face-to-face if needs be.

Tweeters or bloggers passing this way will hopefully understand the importance of supporting independent authors, not just through buying their novels or collections, but by making the effort to leave an honest reader's review on their Amazon page, or on whatever platform you purchase their product. Reviews are like gold to the author, whose job is hard enough as it is. Your assistance in this regard is hugely appreciated. Support indie authors by leaving a review. Pass the word on, you never know when you might one day depend on the same yourself.


If an author isn't yet published, then you can follow them on Twitter or Facebook, shadowing their progress as they prepare their novel for release. What better way to get to know an upcoming writer than by visiting them on a regular basis to see how things are developing? Below are the Twitter and Amazon pages of several of my clients. Take some time out of your day to check them out, and to follow them. Being supportive will do you the world of good.

Taking bookings from October


If your manuscript is ready to be edited and you haven't yet found a professional editor to bring your work to a ready-to-go state before submission or self-publishing, I have openings from late October, so send a sample chapter to me at clearviewediting@gmail.com. This is important as I don't take on new clients without doing a sample edit.

Check out my website to get a better idea of my editing approach: http://clearviewfictionediting.com/

Take a run through my blog to view my thoughts on editing, writing, and taking care of yourself as a creative artist: https://writingfromtheoutsidein.blogspot.ie/

Here's a link to one of my blog posts - a bit of a rant about taking shortcuts when prepping your work for release.
