Author Services

As a hard working, self-published author myself, I full appreciate that we are all trying to get our best work published without breaking the bank.

I love to support other writers on the same journey as me, and have decided to offer a low cost beta reading service.

As well as publishing myself, I am currently studying for my Master’s in Novel Writing, and possess a First Class Honours (UK) degree,  having previously studied English and Creative Writing.
