After reading my older sister's V.C. Andrews novels when I was barely a teen (when my mum found out she plied me with the classics), there was no stopping my love affair with reading.
Fast-forward and I'm now an English teacher with a double degree in Arts and Education, and over 20 years of teaching experience. My love of teaching and reading has developed into a love of helping authors achieve their dreams. Qualified in professional proofreading and editing, I pride my work on my attention to detail and communication with clients.

My goal is to make your dream come true. Whatever service you're interested in, contact me for a free sample edit (1,000 words).
"I have been trusting Nicole with editing for years now and she is absolutely incredible. She is meticulous, prompt, fun, and a dream to work with. I've learned a lot working with her because she doesnt just edit your work and hand it back silently. She opens a dialogue with you, making the whole experience feel like a partnership. It's very reassuring. It's the kind of service that keeps me coming back again and again, unwilling to go to anyone but Letter-Eye." - Author Tracey Ward
"I can't say enough about my incredible editor Nicole. She was patient, thorough and paid attention to detail when editing my memoir. I appreciated that she took the time to explain her edits along with offering several suggestions. She was flexible and extremely kind with my emotional subject matter. She moved quickly and was able to finish the edits by my target date. She’s talented, professional and absolutely lovely!" - Author Andrea Perez
"HIGHLY RECOMMEND! And I’m an ocean away from her! I will use Nicole for all my future projects as long as she’ll have me. Nicole has helped me turn ideas into three Amazon Kindle bestselling and award winning books. I’ve worked with her through many stages of editing and have never had anything other than a great experience. She has saved me from multiple embarrassing mistakes, works quick, is professional and tasteful. You won’t be disappointed." - Author CJ English
Developmental editing works closely with you in the early stages of your writing to look at how your story is coming together to engage readers. There are countless details that go into capturing your intended audience. This service looks at the structure and development of your story, timeline inconsistencies, character growth, chapter order, scene transitions, themes, and reader engagement.
You can expect feedback throughout your manuscript and a detailed summary at the end. A one-hour consultation via Zoom is also available at no extra cost.
Polishing the details of your story, the line edit makes sure everything reads as effortlessly as possible. This service includes detailed in-line feedback on spelling, grammar, sentence structure, dialogue punctuation, and language choice so that your words work together to help readers fall in love with the heart of your story.
Line editing consists of two rounds of editing and follow-up questions you may have regarding my notes.
It's time to polish! This should be done after your book has already had a full edit and you're ready to publish it. A proofreader is advantageous in providing a thorough and professional set of eyes. Regardless of how many times you read over your own writing, hidden errors are often lurking for readers to find. This service includes checking spelling, punctuation, grammar, proper word usage, subject-verb agreement, and tense.
