Are you Fighting to Get Your Book Finished?
Or You Can’t Seem to Find Out How to Self-Publish?

While your journey to publishing may be a steep learning curve, you can do it more easily with the right information. I’ve helped many similar authors, as well as fought my way through the process myself.

Whatever your problem inside self-publishing is, my services or new membership site can probably help. The thing we can’t help with is connections to traditional publishing.

My blog lets authors know some of the pitfalls of self-publishing, marketing, freelance business tips, and how to increase profits.

I can help with a non-fiction book writing project, either starting afresh with writer coaching or structural editing at the mid-point. Or perhaps you’ve finalised the book and need Line editing, Project Management, or help with Book Marketing.

Persuasive writer, Persistent author

Usually, writers and editors are different people, as they are different skill-sets. That said, I have been working as a copywriter/marketer, author and editor for 10 years — so I can actually do both.

Hi, I’m Jennifer Lancaster, an editor and writing coach (Australia) for professionals who want to create their own book. Some of my clients have said really nice things about working with me, even after all their struggles of trying to…

We specialise in non-fiction editing and book mentoring only.

Types of Non-Fiction Editing Services:

  • comprehensive edit can support your book at its earlier stages. The editor will give advice on narrowing the audience, keeping to the thesis, improving the structure, and appropriate referencing. This advisory-style editing can help clarify your book’s message. (Also available in my writing coaching package).

    A line edit will focus on improving structure and readability. The editor will look for overly long sentences, sentence fragments, spelling and punctuation that is not Australian, missing words/typos, and missing or inconsistent headings.

    A copy edit will help to sharpen the words up, ensure consistency and clarity of language, fix spelling and punctuation errors, and check end references and front matter.

    So if you’d like me to look at your book, please send a chapter by email and I’ll give you a free quote.

    Or, if you’d like to get regular support in developing your book, see the writing coaching page.

    My Book Creation Success club helps with self-publishing advice/resources for print-on-demand users.

POD sounds easy, but there’s a massive difference between an amateur and a professional when it comes to presentation. We stumbled around for weeks doing our best to make our book, There’s a Gold Mine in Your Head look like a real book. Then we found Jennifer. In a matter of days it came back looking like a real book, ready to send off. Not only that, but Jennifer gave us some great tips on self publishing and contacting libraries, and she was always available when we hit another roadblock. We can’t recommend her services highly enough.

Working with Jennifer on my first ebook project was an absolute pleasure. Not only did she guide me through the publishing process but she also added invaluable editing advice along the way. Her professionalism and expertise is apparent in the quality of the finished product. I learnt a lot working with Jennifer and will not hesitate to seek her services to assist with my next project.

Jennifer Lancaster edited my book, “Creating Healthy Life Habits”. I was very impressed with Jennifer’s efficiency, professionalism and attention to detail. Jennifer made recommendations to the text, making suggestions to change sentences or the order of words, so that it read better, and also picked up some minor but very important grammatical and punctuation errors. I was very happy with her suggestions and the work she did. I would have no hesitation in using her again, and can highly recommend her services.

Jennifer has a very honest and friendly manner which makes working with her flow very easily. Her editing skills are clear and very helpful. Thank you Jennifer for your part in my journey towards publishing.
