Creative non-fiction authors

I offer a range of services for authors looking to self-publish or perfect their manuscripts. Not sure? I’m happy to discuss your needs or offer you a free sample edit. I work with memoirs, biographies and self-help book authors. I specialise in editing LGBTQ+ books but work with variety of authors.

Developmental editing

Developing a non-fiction book involves understanding how to present information to the reader. In narrative non-fiction, your voice is important. A developmental edit can help to structure your writing.


Checking for consistency, clarity, conciseness and correctness. This level of editing is great for when you are happy with your story but want to tighten up your prose and iron out any wrinkles. Copyediting will also deal with spelling, punctuation and grammar issues.


Ready to print? (Or whatever the ebook equivalent is!) Proofreading is the final check before publishing and ensures that all spelling, punctuation and grammar are correct as well as formatting and page layout elements are right too.

Page layout and typesetting

Whether you are creating a print book, ebook or both, I can use work with you to design beautiful interior pages that draw your reader in.

This is a new service I am offering as of April 2021!

“As a writer of gay non-fiction, I need an editor who not only has all the skills, but also understands where I’m coming from and I can trust. Nick Taylor delivers on all counts.”
