D. Burton Editing

A freelance copy editor you can trust

As an author myself, I know that your manuscript is personal to you and is something that you will feel very protective of.  Trust is an essential part of how I work. Thorough copy editing and proofreading means that your work is free from hidden errors but still has your unique voice and style. 

The DBE Story

I started writing novels at the age of 16 with the dream to have one published. This dream came true in 2015 with Heartbound, a paranormal fiction story about friendship and coping with grief. Having approached publishers with little success, I decided to take the bold step and self-publish. I can safely say this was one of the best decisions I have made!

At the time, I was in my third and final year of studying journalism at Coventry University. As I came to the end of my degree, I quickly realised that journalism was not my true calling. I was promoting Heartbound through social media and the occasional press release and found that I was getting some positive results. This, in turn, encouraged me to set up D. Burton Editing. 

I've not looked back since!
