Storywork Editing Services is the editing business of David Wailing.

Hello! I am a print, website and digital content editor with two decades of experience. I have worked  in the private, public and charity sectors, primarily editing content for a broad audience.

I am also an independent fiction author, and have produced a range of novels, novellas and short stories in multiple genres. I am self-published on the Amazon, Apple, Kobo and Nook eBook platforms.

I love working with other writers! I’m especially keen to help my fellow indie authors produce high-quality work. In this vein, I serve as editor for the Off the KUF short fiction anthologies and have worked with many talented writers.

I am an associate of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and abide by their Code of Practice.

If you have any questions, drop me a line using the Contact form.

Here’s what some of Storywork’s clients say:

I have to say that David has been very easy to work with. His attention to detail is excellent and his critique very educational. I can easily see what I have been doing wrong, and can correct it. He also gave a lot of helpful advice.

The service gets a five star rating from this happy customer.

David Wailing provided a speedy, professional line edit for my novel Road to Rebellion. But my measure of a good line editor includes: Are they willing to discuss the author’s concerns about certain editing conventions? Do they provide suggestions for improving the overall manuscript? Where there are areas of doubt, do they just go ahead and make changes or draw your attention to it by making recommendations? On all these areas David came up trumps, and I will certainly use his services again and would highly recommend it.
