Pete's copyediting and proofreading work is consistently thorough and professional – his methodical and thoughtful approach to tackling issues leaves you feeling that a book is really in safe hands. His flexibility in accommodating last-minute changes or complicated briefs is always enormously appreciated, too, and I'd happily recommend Pete's services.
Sophia Unger, Newgen Publishing UK
Pete has completed a couple of copyediting projects for me now, returning good quality work and adapting as needed to meet specific publisher style guides and preferences. He stays in communication throughout the editing stage, raising queries where necessary, to ensure the work he is completing is of the standard expected, which is greatly appreciated. I would certainly send more work his way.
Jess Bithrey, Newgen Publishing UK
We have used Pete's editing services for two recent sport titles and have been very satisfied. He returned the jobs on time, showed good attention to detail and was easy to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Jane Camillin, Pitch Publishing
I've just self-published a technical e-book, and I chose Pete to edit/proofread it. I particularly liked that he firstly did a sample review for me, he sent my book back to me in small sections (this is how technical people like working), and he finished on time as planned. I think he did a great job, and it was a breeze working with him.
Bilgin Ibryam, Apache Camel committer
I found his service professional, with great feedback that really helped. He picked up on everything and gave me advice on how to change sentences to make them more grammatically correct. He was very thorough and I took on board everything he said. I found him to be reasonably priced for all the work that he did. I would recommend him for any proofreading/editing job. Thank you for a quick and efficient service.
Lisa Studd, independent children's author
I was looking for a proofreader for my MA linguistics dissertation and was grateful for Pete's quick response when I enquired about his services. He provided me with details about his proofreading service and it all seemed reasonable. Having received my amended work back, I really appreciated his efforts and valuable suggestions about how my writing could be improved. Overall, it was a great experience.
Renshui Fan, MA student
As a novice writer, it was reassuring to have the guidance and expertise of Pete to assist me through what was a very new experience for me. His attention to every word, and to each punctuation mark, gave me the confidence to release my work from the security of my laptop to the scrutiny of the public forum. Pete was easy to deal with, worked to an excellent time schedule and allowed me to judge what changes to accept or reject. I would have no hesitation in working with him again in the future.
Andrew Jarrett, ex-Wimbledon tennis Referee
We've worked with Pete on several proofreading projects and he has proven to be a safe and very professional pair of hands – reliable, responsive and generally great to work with.

Vaarunika Dharmapala, Bristol University Press and Policy Press
I found Pete's proofreading skills to be top-notch. He worked with a complicated design brief, picked up on subtle points and returned a very clear and concise mark up. I would highly recommend him.
Julie Bennett, Bespoke Publishing Ltd.
We were very happy with Pete's proofreading. His corrections were useful and he has a good eye for detail. He completed the project on a tight deadline, returned it on time and was very accommodating about some last-minute scheduling changes.
Rosie Pierce, Black and White Publishing
Our team was looking for a proofreader to finalise a policy report. Pete responded to us very rapidly and approached us very clearly in terms of his terms and conditions. It was very important to be able to track the changes throughout the text. We are very happy with his proofreading, and looking forward to benefitting from his services again.

Pawan Adhikari, University of Essex
Pete proofread my CV before I applied for my current job. I would definitely recommend him as he provided a very professional service and got rid of mistakes that I wouldn't have even thought about. He was also very thorough in his work and charged a reasonable amount for the job. Thank you very much.
