About Sue Shade

I am a soon-to-be-retired freelance fiction editor, based in East Hampshire, UK. I started out as a trainee proofreader for The Better Book Company, West Sussex, in 2007, and have been successfully running my own editing business, to include self-publishing, since 2012. I am currently an Intermediate Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), a professional organisation based in the UK who are working towards becoming a chartered institution. 

During the past seven years, I have worked on thirty-five editing projects, to include eighteen novels; ten of which went on to be self-published (and one that will be). Other projects have included the conversion of a physical paperback book to an electronic version, copy-editing a number of short stories, articles for the web, and a number of opening chapters; typesetting for publication, writing blurbs, and assisting with cover design. I have worked with new writers, and independent and traditionally-published authors. 

Whilst I am happy to receive enquiries,  I am no longer advertising my editing services, but will keep this website active for historial reasons and because the information within may prove useful.

When my current project completes, around July/August 2019, I shall no longer edit novels (famous last words?) although I shall not be putting down my Berol Handwriting pen for good. I do have other plans. I'd like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to every one of my clients for entrusting me with their hard work. I have enjoyed every project I've had the honour and privilege to work on.
