    "One of our trusted and valued freelancers, Bronwyn McLennan is commissioned regularly by us to edit manuscripts and write reader reports on novels being considered for publication. We appreciate her keen eye for quality writing, her suggestions for improving a manuscript, the warm and constructive working relationships she forms with the writers whose novels she edits, and her general care and precision in her work. She is also very reliable and delivers on time. Thank you, Bronwyn!" - Catriona Ross, Local Fiction Managing Editor, Penguin Random House Since 2003, I have worked on over 400 titles in my role as consultant, editor, proofreader, beta-reader, and writer. I’ve collaborated with all kinds of writers, at every level, editing books that have been nominated for or won literary awards (see my Portfolio below), and working with renowned authors such as André Brink (twice nominated for the Man Booker Prize). In addition to writing, developmental and copy-editing, and proofreading, I offer the following services: 1. BOOK PLANNING / OUTLINING PROCESS • Brainstorming and conceptualizing • Creating a comprehensive outline with chapter summaries • Notes on structure, theme, pacing/length, style, content/plot, voice, setting and themes • Character sketches (detailed profiles of personalities, distinctive traits, motivations, etc.) 2. CONSULTING • Conceptualizing • Defining goals and creating a schedule • Defining plot/content, structure, themes, voice and writing style • Compiling an outline • Building characters • Editorial feedback • Ongoing motivation, guidance, and support 3. BETA-READING AND EDITORIAL EVALUATIONS • Reports with feedback on content/plot, structure and style 4. REVISION • Assistance with working through the second or third draft of a book I am passionate about helping people express themselves through writing. Themes and genres that interest me include art, mindfulness, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, tarot, self-development, Japanese fiction, coming-of-age stories, poetry, contemporary and LGBTQ literature. TESTIMONIALS "Bronwyn McLennan, had the insight and courage to tell me I could do better than the original draft and worked with me on a tight deadline through an almost total rework of the material. It says much for her guidance that I worked with more intensity than ever in my life before without questioning the direction she advised. The final, and infinitely better, structure of the book is due to Bronwyn’s input." - Maureen Collins, author of STRAIGHT TALK: HOW TO MANAGE CONVERSATIONS THAT SCARE YOU (Penguin Random House) "I must say, I found the editing magnificent and sensitive. I hope I can work with Bronwyn again!" André Brink, OTHER LIVES (Penguin Random House, Umuzi) "Bronwyn McLennan, you are a true gift from the Universe. Thank you for loving this project, for encouraging me and for being the finisher." Donna Macallan, author of THE FAIRY GODMOTHER'S GUIDE TO GETTING WHAT YOU WANT (Penguin Random House, Oshun) This book would not be anything without the wonderful editor I was blessed to have, Bronwyn McLennan. Thank you for making sense of my book and turning it into something people can understand and relate to. It has been a pleasure working with you as I found you to be open and sensitive to my needs as the author. I challenged you and questioned you during the editing process but you always responded with further suggestions and ideas. It is a difficult thing to give over your creative work and allow someone to fiddle with and tweak it. You were keenly aware of my discomfort at times, and showed such patience and understanding. I gave you vegetable soup, you returned to me with comments attached, and with my added comments it looked like my dog’s breakfast, but you whipped it into a gourmet soufflé of haute cuisine standard! I don’t know how you did it, but well done!’ Toni Lee, You’re Happy … You Just Don’t Know it Yet (Penguin Random House, Oshun)

    I am a copywriter with about 6 years of experience. As a person who loves my job, I always try to complete the job in the best way to bring maximum efficiency to customers. You may not need to pay for me if I do not bring efficiency and revenue to your project. I'm not saying I'm the best in this industry but I'm probably the only person who is willing to do these 5 things to you: 👉Go the extramile .I'm willing to spend 80% of my time researching so I can understand your niche and help you increase your CR( unless I'm willing to rewite my sales copy again and again.) 👉I'm not the king of 9 -to -5 person who just waist until pm to shutdow the laptop.working extra hours to help you achieve what you're looking for is my biggest hobby. 👉Always be happy, always try your best, always be responsible for your work, that's what I always set for myselfI. 👉I always try to run forward, constantly change myself to upgrade my intelligence, constantly learn from the best people to have lessons in life and experience in work. 👉In the end, perseverance creates success, striving to create results. Because I am a person who always wants to aim for perfection, I will spend all my time correcting mistakes if you notice them in the work I do for you. Please let me know. I want us to cooperate and develop together in the long term, not just a few projects on upwork. I've foud the biggest problem in writing sales pages in the fact that 90% of people who land on your sales pages would sroll down to the bottom immediately to see how much it cost... Well,i don't bilieve the price drop or price anchor will work anymore. Your prospects ar so sophisticated .They know your price in advance! That's why ,sometimes, addressing this problem right at the beginning of your sales page would be the best choice! If we were to work together, you just need to provide me with the basic information about your prospects, products I services, previous sale copy... Answer some question that I might have and I'll do all the rest. If the final result is not what you're looking for, don't pay me.I'm happy with that.Not for a moment did I raise a question of taking money from some one who is not satisfied with my work. Affter all, if you don't agree with my approach, I'm afraid that we're not a good fit. But if you now feel very excited youfound something. Leve me a message, and we will see how it goes!
