Black Cat Editorial Services offers sensitive, thoughtful and thorough proofreading and copy-editing, specialising in fiction. Clients benefiting from these services include publishers and independent authors.

I’m Hannah McCall and I have worked on more than 220 projects since 2015, including murder mysteries, fantasy fiction and short-story collections. All of these have been completed to the highest editorial standards, while respecting and strengthening the author’s voice.

Why should you choose Black Cat Editorial Services?

  • You’ll receive a service tailored to and appropriate for your needs and the project, and I’ll work with you directly. There is no one-size-fits-all approach at Black Cat.
  • I have seven years’ experience working with publishers and independent authors. You will benefit from the knowledge and expertise I have accumulated through thousands of hours of editorial work.
  • My clients recommend me. In fact, in the last financial year 89% of my work was commissioned by repeat clients.
  • I’m highly trained, and I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) (formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders). I’ve proven my experience and skills to the CIEP, and I follow their code of practice. In addition, I serve as a tutor on the CIEP’s proofreading training courses.
