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 eight 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.

“In addition to being a joy to work with, Hannah has an incredibly keen eye for catching all the teensiest, tiniest typos; mistakes; inconsistencies; and continuity errors.”

“The care that Hannah puts into her work shows in the attention to detail in her edits, and her reports. She picks up major and minor world building elements and stylistic choices I’ve made as a writer. I could go on and on, but I’ll put it simply: If you’re looking for top-notch editing services you’ve come to the right place!”
