Kat was warm and professional from the very start. She listened to my concerns, made her suggestions and backed up these suggestions with a sample edit. I was sold from then onward. She’s an editor who understands important things, like tone and style, and prunes with a thorough, but not ruthless hand. She does her research, and gives detailed reasons for changes. I was very fortunate to find her.

I recommend her to writers who want to see their work truly shine. She's a joy to work with.

Inspired by passion, Element Editing Services was founded in 2011. Having worked as an editor since 2010, I spent the beginning of my career providing detailed developmental advice and editing anything I could get my hands on. I now specialise in speculative fiction, particularly fantasy and science fiction. I work incredibly hard to ensure that every client receives only the very best editing experience.

Element Editing Services takes its name from the core elements that weave together to create a brilliantly written novel. 

It's important to note that the definitions of some of these edits change between countries, and even between editors.

Please ensure you read the descriptions of each type editing.

Beyond Two Realms.jpg

Faery is on death's doorstep… and Sophie is nowhere to be found.


Heartbroken. Hurting. Hollow. Sophie Taliesin finds herself back at square one in a new realm – the Godlands. Though this new world brings new adventures, grief is a looming darkness whose bite she can’t seem to shake.

Kaine, in desperate search for Sophie, leaps from the ledge of sanity. He plays into the bloodied hands of Queen Calliea and makes good on his promise… to start a war in the name of the only woman who has shown him love.

As the last standing courts of Faery fall to the blight and the evil of the Shadow Realm burgeons, Sophie must return to Faery. But to face her greatest betrayal and an even greater threat, she will need to control her powers.

The key not only lies in her own veiled past, but the one she shares with an angel of the Tienthan – Acheron Taranis.
