Self Publishing Journeys

Episode 13: Helen Fazal

Helen Fazal

Helen Fazal is a qualified proofreader and copy-editor.

She is a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

Helen has now copy-edited and proofread all six of my fiction books.

I invited her onto the podcast to share her best tips and advice about this essential self-publishing process.

It's important that all self-published authors get their work looked over by at least one editor, and Helen explains how to find a qualified editor in this interview.
