Working with me

You can opt to post the typescript to me – I will give you the address once you have been in touch with me – or to email it. Since I find it much easier to read on paper than on-screen, I print out any emailed typescripts and make a charge for this of 10 pence a page. You should add this amount to your payment for the report (see my Fees below).

I’m sorry, but I do not read poetry, plays or science fiction. If you have written a children’s book, I recommend that you send it to

Louise Jordan at Writers’ Advice Centre.

I don’t normally return typescripts unless specifically asked, with return postage paid in advance – and, please, always keep an up-to-date copy of your work for yourself before submitting anything to me. No folder or binder is necessary. Please ensure that you have used a clear unadorned typeface, 12-point minimum, double-spaced.


  • For a book up to 90,000 words long £300
  • For a book of between 90 – 120,000 words £350
  • Plus photo-copying at 10 pence per page, if applicable
  • If your work is substantially shorter or longer, let me know and I will quote you a price.
  • Follow-up work on revisions £30p.h.


  1. Payment, preferably by cheque, should accompany your submission.

  2. I will email my report to you, usually within 2 – 3 weeks of receipt of payment. I will let you know in advance if it is likely to take any longer.
