Fiction editing for independent authors
Your writing, my passion
I specialise in science-fiction, fantasy, and horror writing, providing knowledgeable and genre-savvy feedback to authors working within these genres. I love reading genre fiction, so you know that you’ll be working with someone who’s just as passionate about your writing as you are. And with a degree in English Literature and an MA in Creative Writing, I can give you qualified editorial feedback.

What other authors say
Alex Brianson on his editorial feedback
'I asked Anouchka for feedback on my second novel. I’m so glad I did. [...] I was delighted that she did exactly what I had hoped and gave me useful suggestions of ways to expand the book from its first draft of about 60,000 words. She really engaged with the text and gave me a huge confidence boost in so doing. [...] If you’re considering whether to work with her, my wholehearted advice is to do it.
Stark Holborn, author of Advanced Triggernometry
Anouchka is an incredibly versatile editor, who gave some of the best editorial feedback I have ever received, with insightful comments and pin-point accurate stylistic observations.
Angelena Boden, author of Love Bytes Back
Anouchka edited my most recent novel and I was delighted with the result. She has a keen eye for detail, makes excellent suggestions to improve the flow of the story and challenges ideas that are clearly not working. Not only is she a superb editor, but also an excellent teacher. I can't recommend her highly enough.
