Emikat Jun, author of Behind The Mask

As soon as I found Wrate’s Editing Services on Google, I immediately had a good feeling that this was a company I could work with; they seemed friendly, approachable and had a very straightforward process. Since making contact with Danielle Wrate, I have never looked back. She basically held my hand as we journeyed together from the beginning to the end.

Being new to publishing, I didn’t really know what to do; all I knew was that I’d put my thoughts into words and if I wanted other people to read them, they needed to be ironed out. My book is set in the Philippines, where I’m originally from, and what I appreciated the most is that Danielle did some research about my country and suggested some changes to my writing in order to suit the general public. The initial title of my book was Tandem, Behind the Mask, but Danielle suggested that I drop the word Tandem, as it was confusing. Instead she came up with the idea of using the Filipino words for Behind the Mask, and she even managed to find the perfect translation of the phrase! Hence we came up with Behind the Mask (Sa Likod Ng Maskara).

I had a clear vision for how the book would look and Danielle and her team did an amazing job in fulfilling this – it was well beyond my expectations. My debut novel is out now and it feels fantastically surreal!

For anyone who has a book waiting to be self-published, especially if you’re a first timer like me, I highly recommend Danielle Wrate and her team. I would definitely work with them again in my future writing adventures.

    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.
