Services I Provide:


Manuscript Review

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

I will provide broad feedback on your manuscript. This includes general feedback on the themes of the book, feedback on the piece’s structure, voice and narrative. This is meant to be a starting point from which you can re-write and edit your work.


Structural Edit

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

This is an in-depth version of the manuscript review: I will give you notes on how to make sure your story comes together in the most effective way possible. I will provide feedback on plot, structure of paragraphs, character, transitions, dialogue and narrative flow. The goal is to make sure your piece holds the attention of your reader, and to help you produce the highest quality of work you can.


Line Edit

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

We will go through the building blocks of your book: sentences. We will go through each line of your book to make sure you are conveying your thoughts in the best way you can. The goal is to ensure your writing flows, is concise, coherent and is pleasurable to read.


Copy Edit

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

In this edit, I will polish the final version of your book, after you have finalised its structure, language and content. I will concentrate on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting. The goal is to create a high-quality, finished piece that is ready to be published.


Proposal Edit

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

Have a great idea? Want to pitch to a publication or a publishing house. Or do you need help applying for a grant for an exciting new project? I will help you line-edit your proposal, strengthen the concept of your pitch, help define your market and structure your chapter outlines. The goal is to grab your reader’s attention, and convey your ideas in the most structured, coherent, and interesting way possible.


Content Consulting

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem

What People Are Saying

It has been a refreshing experience to work with Tara who brought a very unique perspective to setting the approach to my Book project.Her calm and composed demeanour with great listening , grasping and research skills and putting her views and suggestions across clearly was particularly valuable.She collaborated with the team and took the lead single handedly at every point voluntarily to ensure the momentum was kept up.Tara continues to be engaged with this project which is in its final stages .I would like to specifically say that it would not have been possible for me to get it to this stage(this being my first attempt ) without her commitment and support.I wish her all the best in her future endeavours and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a great project partner and leader.
