Editing and Proofreading


Athena Copy provides bespoke editing services to writers of genre fiction and narrative non-fiction.


Expertise that allows your voice to break through the smoke.


I'm Kat, book editor, specialising in genre fiction, covering sff, crime and thrillers, historical fiction, and romance and erotica.


Based in Scotland, accepting work from all over the world.


I am enthusiastic, approachable, creative and efficient. I love reading, always have, and feel very lucky to have a job that allows me to give stories the wings that will allow them to soar. Together, we will make your story the best it can be.​


When you hire me to assess your manuscript and/or line edit/copy-edit your work, you will deal with me directly from start to finish.


As a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (the CIEP), I am bound by their Code of Practice. I trained in proofreading and copy-editing with the SfEP (the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, now the CIEP) and Chapterhouse, and I have a TEFL qualification to assist in my work with ESL authors
