Editing and Illustration Services

Editing will often not be a friend to the creative side of your brain. The creative side may have helped you write the raw first draft and allowed you to spread your wordful wings into the experimental side of writing. But now it is time for your logical mind to rein everything back in for a critical assessment and to make your work publishable.

Illustrations make your words sing. Scroll down and check out our illustrator's enthusiastic desire to draw what you have imagined.

1) To have your work proof-read / edited by one of our experienced editors, send us an email via the CONTACT page to nominate your chosen editor and what work you would like done.

2) To illustrate your children's book, book cover or other kinds of art work, please send us an email via the CONTACT page to nominate your chosen editor and what work you would like done (we only have one illustrator at the moment, but don't worry she's great at filling all requests).

Prices for Illustrations and samples

Tessie is always enthusiastic to collaborate with writers of children's stories so that she can help bring their book to life.

 

She also loves helping clients with their quirky personalised requests such as family or pet cartoon portraits, birthday and wedding invitations as well as any other ideas you can come up with!

Initial try-out or sample

Please view Tessie's website so that you may see the kind of work that she will do for you. Once you are happy with what she has to offer, she will collaborate with you for a $25 flat fee on sample art until you are both happy to move forward (in the likely event that you both think it will not work out, then no further cost will be incurred). If you do decide to go ahead, then the first hour of illustration work will be free.
