You can expect a full critique, providing developmental editing, line editing, and copy-editing for your manuscript. As a writer myself, studying a degree in the same field for the past four years, I understand the importance of shaping and revising your work to its best standard. My aim is to help you reach that result by suggesting edits for all aspects with supportive yet honest criticism. I’ll return the edited manuscript with an additional clean copy.
I’ll then answer any questions and further explain my edits and comments, if requested.
I cover the categories/genres LGBTQ+, science fiction, fantasy, YA/NA, and horror. I’m open to romance, erotica, mystery, thriller, and children’s fiction. I’m less likely to accept crime or historical fiction. I do not accept non-fiction, poetry, or scripts. I do not read anything that features pedophilia or incest. I do not read anything that is intentionally harmful to marginalised groups.
I only use .doc/.docx files for my editing.
I can provide a free sample for the following word counts: 500 for short stories, 1,500 for novelettes/novellas, and 2,500 for novels. They will be deducted from the price. The sample doesn’t apply to flash fiction or works under 1,000 words.
My usual rate is £0.005 per word, but I offer various discounts depending on the client and/or project.
Half of the price is paid as a deposit and half is paid upon delivery of the edited manuscript. I ask that the full amount is paid upfront if the project is under £50. I’ll provide the relevant invoices.
All payments are made via Paypal.

“I had just finished the rough draft of my manuscript and was in a hurry to find a reliable and affordable editor when I stumbled upon Kat, and honestly, I really lucked out! Kat was quick and open with her communication, and she was extremely patient in answering all of my questions. She took my schedule into consideration and was respectful of my work. I was so happy with the work she delivered; she edited my messy manuscript to make it flow, even adding suggestions and pointing out inconsistencies and weak points of my story in general! Thanks to her, I knew exactly what parts of my manuscript still needed some work. Her feedback has been invaluable and I definitely recommend her services!” — G. Michaelis
“Kat performed a line/copy/content edit for the first book in my Definition series – Definition of Stripped. It had been through two rounds of beta readers, and a critique editor, yet she still managed to find new angles that would be a smoother fit, and her attention to detail is excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” — Lia Peele
“K.A. Tutin was an asset when it came to beta reading and editing through my stories. Her concise and thoughtful feedback and edits helped me see the places where my story was lacking, and made the narrative of my story stronger as a whole. Not only do I recommend her work, but I plan to use her services again in the future as well.” — C. E. Clayton
Two of the stories that I’ve edited for C. E. Clayton have since been published.
“K. A. Tutin’s feedback has been some of the most valuable I’ve ever received. I was really pleased with the time and effort she put into critiquing my work. Having read her own work for some time now I felt very assured that her insights would allow me to improve my writing. Her comments were thorough, thoughtful and extremely helpful. I’ve learned recently that every writer should have what they call an “ideal reader” and I’m glad to have found one in her.” — Zeeshan Amit
“The feedback I received from Kat helped me revamp my sci-fi flash fiction story before I submitted it. She caught exactly what I was going for as far as story theme and plot, and pointed out places where I could hone and clarify my words to better appear to my audience. I will definitely be seeking her out in the future for feedback on new stories.” — Jenna Mitchell
