Why choose us?

Fantastic feedback…

Here are some of the recent testimonials that we’ve received from self-published authors.

Louise Presley-Turner“Danielle made the whole process of editing my book an absolute breeze. Her attention to detail is amazing. I have been left with a word-perfect book that I am very proud of. This is the best investment you can make when producing your book. Mindset Mastery would not be what it is today without Danielle’s magic.”
Louise Presley-Turner – Personal Growth Expert and author of Mindset Mastery

“I employed Danielle to copy edit and proofread my book and found her to be very thorough, detailed and excellent at working to strict timescales. Not only this, Danielle has experience of working in marketing and helped me to achieve national PR in some leading UK magazines. It’s every self-published author’s dream to have all these services under one roof.”
Antony Stagg – author of If I Can Do it, You Can Too!

“I chose Danielle to edit easyLand after careful consideration of a host of editors available online. I felt I’d made a Tony Andersonsmart choice from our first contact as Danielle is that rare breed of editor with a good eye for detail but who also understands the requirement for a non-fiction author to temper creativity with pragmatism. I was very happy with the finished product which has exceeded all my expectations and at one point achieved #1 best selling rank in its category on Amazon. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”
Tony Anderson – author of easyLand – How easyJet conquered Europe

“I first met Danielle when she interviewed me for a feature for a national magazine. I found her interviewing style to be really empathetic and I was thrilled with the resulting article. On the basis of this experience, I asked Danielle to copy edit and proofread my second book and it was a pain-free process. As an author, your book is your baby and you hope that it will be handled with love and care, which mine was. Again, I was thrilled with the end result. Danielle is professional and worked well to the agreed deadline. I would certainly recommend her services.”
Angel Alison Ward – author of Bringing You Back to YOU!

“By a stroke of good fortune, I came across Wrate’s Editing Services whilst looking for a suitable editor/proofreader for my book. I was looking for someone with whom I could communicate easily and Danielle met that requirement perfectly. She turned around my work quickly and efficiently, with clear and concise advice on the edits required. The same happened during the proofreading process. I have had favourable feedback from people who have read my book regarding the presentation and the ease with which it can be read. This is due, to a large extent, to the work done by Danielle and I would be happy to recommend her to anyone seeking a first-class editor and proofreader.”
Douglas Forrest – author of Jimmy Wilds: The Soldier Who Elected A Government

Just Do It And FInish“I hired Danielle to copy edit and proofread my father’s memoir as a surprise for his 80th birthday, and she also helped with getting the book designed and printed. It was a very easy and hassle-free process and Danielle really took on board what I wanted with regards to the tone and structure of the book. My father and my family were delighted with the end result.”
Sarah Nowell – daughter of Ali Patell, the author of Just Do It and Finish

“Danielle provided a very good service.  Her proofreading was quick and accurate and her copy suggestions very valuable.  She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend contacting her.”
Denise Spreag – author of The Pure

A personal approach…

We believe that editing is a two-way street and that you should see your editor as a caring colleague rather than some anonymous person armed with a correcting pen.

For this reason, we will be available via phone or email to answer any questions that you may have throughout any stage of the editing process.

In the first instance, we will chat with you about your exact requirements and tailor our service accordingly. For example, you may have a particular way that you want the changes to be made on your manuscript, or you might prefer it to be edited for the US market (color rather than colour, center rather than centre, and so on…). We will also set a mutually agreeable deadline.

We won’t shy away from giving you constructive criticism if we feel it’s going to improve your book, but we will never be rude or dismissive about your work. If you don’t like the suggestions we’ve made, feel free to discuss it with us. We give out feedback so we have to be able to take it!

Free marketing advice…

Your book has been edited, you have approved the final draft and it’s now available to buy in print, as an ebook, or even both. It would be tempting to think that all the hard work is over. But if you want to sell lots of copies of your book, it’s vital to concentrate on marketing it, and we can help here too.

Danielle Wrate, the founder of Wrate’s Editing Services, has spent the past decade placing features in national and regional publications. See the About page for more details. If you want to market your book via the media she will be happy to advise you how to go about this free of charge. If she feels confident that you have a story that could appear in the national media (either about you or your work), she will contact them on your behalf. Magazines and newspapers do pay for stories so it’s possible that she will be able to negotiate a fee for you, which will help towards your publishing costs. We will also proudly mention your book on our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed.

    Danielle is a delight to work with, she was invested in my work and always had the final product in the forefront of her mind. Importantly, she ensured it worthy of being in the public domain. With a keen eye for detail and a professional … More approach she offers a quality service; I frequently find myself recommending her and will continue to do so. What are you waiting for :-D
    Merry Go Round was published under my real name, Sarah Toll, by Wrate's Editing Services in November 2020.

    I found Danielle about 10 yrs ago I think, when I had the urge to write a novel, its now sitting in a dust pile but the experience was so good I decided to try again with a non fiction book about my experiences as a nanny and how to help … More new mothers. Danielle sifted through screeds of thoughts and rambling sentences and pulled out some thing that made me feel like I knew what I was talking about. But it was missing something on my part, and sat on the study computer till I became a mum myself and was able to bring both sides of childcare to the table, the professional and the novice ! Hence All The Small Things, Everything I picked up as a Nanny and a New Mummy was born ( pun intended ) Between us we filtered through blogs I had written and previous work and brought together a piece of work Im really proud of .
    Danielle found my voice, helped me say what I needed to say, and is still supporting me and helping me with wonderful press on the book, so far I've been in the paper and on the radio promoting it .... with a few more deals up her sleeve to make sure that our work gets to as many Mums as it can.
    I cant recommend this process enough, and the feeling of achievement when you have the book inside you on paper. Danielle is professional and personal , which is what us budding authors need. If youre looking to tell your story , look no further .

    I contacted Danielle Wrate by email about a proofread of my novel, Shadow Song. I was impressed by her swift and thorough response, checking that this was indeed the service I needed. The proofread was duly carried out, well within the … More estimated time. I am extremely pleased with it, as it has been carried out carefully and the comments made are constructive and helpful. Thank you.

    I am so glad I chose Danielle to edit my first novel. It was frightening to hand something I'd worked on so hard and for so long to a stranger, but, from the outset, she was supportive and offered constructive advice. I couldn't … More be more pleased with the work she did for me and will certainly be using her again for book number two.
