Woman Writing

Editorial Services

Do you need guidance and support to get your novel to the next stage? 

I provide editorial services for writers at any stage of the writing process, whether you're just starting out or if you're already published.

As a writer and editor with three published novels of my own, I'm now offering my services as a freelance developmental and copy editor, specialising in psychological thrillers and women's fiction. I offer expertise at all levels of editing: structural editing, copy editing, proofreading and book coaching/mentoring. See below to find out more about the editorial services I offer.

My Masters in Creative Writing taught me the ins and outs of structure, pace, plot and conflict, and I've navigated the novel writing and publishing process from start to finish. I know what it's like when you've done everything you can and you're ready for another set of eyes on your work.

Contact me to talk and find out more, whether you're still working on an idea or if you've finished a manuscript!

Testimonials

I’ve relied on Rosie’s editing skills for the past five years. Her keen eye and attention to detail has ensured everything I send out is word-perfect, from newspaper articles to competition winning pieces. Recently I used her developmental editing service for my psychological thriller manuscript and she was amazing, showing me where the action needed to pick up on the page, helping me restructure the twist so it’s perfect and also letting me know when something was working well, which was incredibly helpful and motivating.

Suzy Pope, travel writer

Rosie Walker is a professional, highly skilled and enthusiastic editor. She provided an in-depth, well considered report, chock full of brilliant ideas and suggestions for me on how to improve my work. I am so grateful and I would have no hesitation in working with or recommending Rosie to anyone. My novel had it's share of troubles but Rosie gave me some great insights and a path forward, and I really appreciate it.

Sharron Martin, author of Discovering Orla

I don’t know how I got so lucky! As a first time author with a completed novel, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. When I requested an editor who would work in a completely unrealistic timeframe, Rosie was the only editor who explained a realistic schedule. Add to that invaluable candor her articulate, constructive suggestions and boundless creativity and I feel I struck gold in this exceptional editor.

Rosie was amazing! She made sure she had a clear understanding of what I was looking for to have the best possible outcome for my manuscript. Plus, she made it a point to identify components she really enjoyed which was a nice surprise! I will be working with her on all future projects!
