Welcome

Black Cat Editorial Services offers sensitive, thoughtful and thorough proofreading and copy-editing for fiction and other texts. Clients benefiting from these services include publishers, independent authors, students, businesses, and professional individuals.

I’m Hannah McCall and I have worked on more than 70 projects since 2015, including memoirs, fantasy fiction and postgraduate theses. 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 three years’ experience working with publishers, academics, students, 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 75% of my work was commissioned by repeat clients.
  • I’m highly trained, and I am a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). I’ve proven my experience and skills to the SfEP, and I follow their code of practice. In addition, I’m the coordinator for the SfEP’s West Surrey and North Hampshire local group.
