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.

Envy.jpg

The inhabitants of the second planet orbiting Gliese 667C are on their own: the only Starjump to Earth was destroyed long ago.

An AI-equipped environment suit called Envy searches for a way back to Earth. Envy’s wearer, Commander Ortega, has bigger problems: marital disharmony, his insubordinate environment suit, and a civil war in the making.

What can a suit do to make things right? Silenced, immobile, and with the threat of a memory wipe always present, Envy must use all its ingenuity to survive.
