Children’s Book Editing

Hello I’m Caoimhe, an artist and freelance children’s book editor from Co. Monaghan. 
With a BA (Hons) in English and Geography and a PgDip from NUI Galway, I have been editing children’s book manuscripts for the past couple of years. My favourite genres are picture books, chapter books and middle grade fiction and fantasy. 

If you would like to chat to me about your children’s book or to get a quote for editing, please feel free to email me at

Editing will include:

Correction of grammar, spelling and typos.

Line by line editing with suggestions to improve clarity and flow.

Suggestions to improve storyline and character development.

Identification of areas that need more work and areas of the manuscript that could be cut.

Fact checking if needed.

All feedback will be to the best of my knowledge and experience as to how to improve your children’s book to make it more competitive in today’s market.

To make the most of my service, upon full editing feedback, the author’s revision efforts are essential. It is the author’s job then to implement any revisions necessary.

As an editor, I will not co-write or re-write any part of the book.

I request all work submitted to be in a word document. I will reply to your submission email within 24hours with a timeframe for edit completion. 

Phone time is not included in my services, however email questions regarding feedback are welcome and I am happy to exchange emails with the author until they are completely satisfied with the manuscript.
