    Hi, Do you need an experienced, professional editor, or proofreader or book designer? And a successful one? You have come to the right place. www.ampublishingnz.com

    I am a freelance publisher with nine years' experience as a professional editor, proofreader, copy editor and book designer. I have a BA in Music and Languages, and a Diploma in Book Editing, Proofreading and Publishing, and I provide a full service for independent publishing. In the last nine years I have produced over 130 books for clients, I produce ebooks on Amazon, as well as doing purely editing and proofreading work. I am on the University of Auckland's approved list of proofreaders for theses.

    I am energetic, self-motivated and dedicated, with considerable experience in a wide range of areas. Born in New Zealand, I have lived in Australia and England for many years, being successfully self-employed for 23 years. I returned to New Zealand in 2006 and I now work freelance, having built up a successful business.

    My key attributes are:

    * Exceptionally attentive to detail
    * Thorough, focused and professional
    * Adaptable and flexible.

    I have skills in:

    EDITING
    PROOFREADING
    COPY EDITING
    TYPESETTING
    LAYOUTS
    FORMATTING DOCUMENTS
    PHOTO RESTORATION
    BOOK DESIGN & LAYOUT.

    I work with other NZSA members for services such as manuscript assessment.

    TESTIMONIALS:

    "... editing style is meticulous ... makes the arduous work of rewriting ... effortless ..."
    Adrienne took my manuscript and turned it into a beautiful book. Not only is the layout and design thoroughly professional, but her sharp eye for detail and ability to get to the essence of the story eliminated everything from typos to problems with the narrative. Her editing style is meticulous and she makes the arduous work of rewriting as effortless as it could be. My third crime novel, Cold Hard Murder, is immensely stronger for the wonderful work Adrienne did on it and I highly recommend her services as both an editor and book designer.

    "The book looks beautiful ..."
    and we have much appreciated all your hard work, your professionalism, your skills and your excellent knowledge. You have done a fantastic job. I have appreciated your nice, calm manner – when I was under stress, you stayed calm – which was just what was needed. Thank you very, very much – I can’t thank you enough.
    (Elizabeth Morey, for the NZ Military Historical Society. A Strong Sense of Duty: The First World War Letters of Chaplain The Reverend Clive Mortimer Jones 1917-1920, produced October 2013.)

     

    "My new book looks lovely ..."
    It is all very well to write a book but you have to have someone good to produce it. AM Publishing did that and made a fabulous job of it. Adrienne is so professional and had many good suggestions on how to improve the look of my book. She made the whole process of publishing my book so easy and I am delighted with the result. It was a pleasure to work with her and she is one of the best publishers I have ever worked with.
    (Rae McGregor, author of RadarMan, March 2013 and Shrewd Sanctity: the Story of Kathleen Hall Missionary Nurse in China 1896-1970. January 2012.)

     

    "When I sent my 600+ page book to Adrienne for proofreading ..."
    I never imagined she would find so many errors. Not only did she find errors in punctuation and spelling, she fixed wrong use of English, and even factual details. I learnt more about English over one weekend than all those years at school. Adrienne is professional and a pleasure to deal with. For me, she showed a genuine interest in my project and went the extra mile to help me make sure my book was all I wished it to be. If it is perfection in a timely manner you want, at a reasonable price, Adrienne comes highly recommended.

    Those Be Rubies - The History of International Writers’ Workshop NZ Inc. 1976 – 2016

    In 1976, four women banded together to create a writing group. Their vision was to encourage aspiring writers. Forty years on, the International Writers’ Workshop NZ Inc. celebrates its ruby anniversary with Those Be Rubies, the first documented history of the organisation and its members.

    This meticulously researched chronicle of triumphs and challenges outlines how the organisation has developed through four decades of social and technological change. It reveals how one small group of dedicated poets and writers brought opportunities to many.

    There are four parts to the story and each represents one decade alive with fascinating information. From small beginnings in the seventies to the current celebrations, IWW has attracted members with the same aim: to enjoy and promote writing.

    Those Be Rubies is a cornucopia of history, recollections and anecdotes.
