Elaine Evans, author of 10 Meals to Support Independence

I decided to publish a recipe book for people with learning difficulties and their carers. My adult son, Simon, struggles with reading, writing and processing information and I wanted to encourage him to cook healthy meals and vary his diet. I designed my recipes so that even if the care worker is lacking cooking skills themselves, they can still help Simon produce a decent meal. After deciding to go down the self-publishing route, I looked online to see what to do and came to the conclusion that the book needed a professional vision.

Wrate’s Editing Services was recommended to me, and when I first spoke to Danielle I had already started compiling recipes and taking photos of the meals. Danielle made some excellent suggestions regarding how to present the images, which I took on board, and they greatly improved the final layout. The professionalism of the service exceeded my expectations and I was delighted with how the book was edited and laid out. I love the cover too.

As well as publishing on Amazon as a Kindle and Print on Demand paperback, Danielle has helped me get 50 spiral bound copies printed, which will be stocked in a café in Woking.

    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.

    … More I could have ever imagined.
