Previous Work

  • I am delighted with the service provided by Clare and Marie at Editing Services. Clare is a pleasure to deal with and I will happily work with her again. Marie edited my manuscript and I am delighted with her input and suggestions. I am very happy that I placed my manuscript in the safe hands of Editing Services.

    Barnaby Taylor ( writer)
  • I am delighted I had found Clare and Michelle and got these two amazing ladies as my editors. Not only they are extremely professionals and they are also so passionate with what they do. They are perfectionists and have made my novels what they are. Clare has constantly been in contact with me (also on behalf of Michelle) and guided me through their work and progress of the editing they chose and which options were more suited for the finalisation of my novels. I will definitely use Clare and Michelle again for my next upcoming projects. They are brilliant editors.

    Camille Psaila (Writer.Dublin)
  • “I’ve always loved the phrase ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’For the second time I have called on Clare Keogh and her magnificent team to help with edits on my second book “The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist – The Island of Milk and Honey.” What more can I say that I, or anyone else, hasn’t already said about Clare and her team. They are, without a doubt, top drawer. So easy to work with, patient and they know their craft! That is why I have called on Clare and Ian to help get the first drafts of the screenplay for the movie “The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist,” ready. Thanks a million, Editing Services!

    Bruce Van Alstyne (Writer/Screenwriter. Texas)
  • “Back in 2014, I engaged Clare to assist with script editing and coverage on my feature screenplay ‘Barking Mad’, a dark comedy/thriller road movie, set in Ireland and all taking place over one day. Clare and her associate Ian’s notes were superb and really helped me to take it to the next level. Last year, they worked their magic again on another screenplay of mine – ‘Love Infernal’, a neo-noir, a psychological thriller which just received glowing praise from a reader/script editor with the illustrious Black List (https://blcklst.com/). I can’t recommend Clare’s ‘Editing Service’ highly enough to all screenwriters in need of that utterly essential objective, learned gaze to help put a professional polish on their scripts.”

    John Dawson (Screenwriter/Director. Dublin)
  • Thank you so much for your screenplay coverage! It’s exactly what I wanted and needed. I will definitely recommend your service. I will definitely be a return client as well. Thank you again and it was a pleasure working with you.

    Zach Allen (Screenwriter-Evil Iguana Productions. Chicago)
  • I have been at my writing for many years and have not been successful. But since I came across Editing Services I have never looked back. The personal attention I have received was excellent and I feel now that my writing is back on track, many thanks to Clare at Editing Services.

    John Scully (Writer)
  • Clare and her team were an inspiration to work with in the development of my projects. She just makes it happen!

    John Rossister (Writer)
  • I cannot say enough regarding Clare’s ability and genius in producing my comedy Lordie. Her expertise and patience allowed the book to be published internationally. She continues to be an inspiration to new writers like myself.

    Jake Brennan ( Writer)
  • Clare did an expert job at proofing two manuscripts for me. The Presentation Book and The Communication Book. I found her to be professional and passionate. The work she delivered for me was of the highest quality. Her client care is excellent and I really enjoyed working with her. I would highly recommend Clare and Editing Services.

    Emma Ledden ( Writer)
  • Clare is a great editor. I received my manuscript with the right changes that did not take away the pace of the story. She gave me some great tips as well and you can see she is focused on improving your manuscript and not looking to make an extra buck out of a client. I totally recommend her and I am sure to bring more of my writing her way!

    Yahaira Lidia Reyes Jimenez ( writer)
  • Clare’s been a great help working on a recent book pet project. As well as the editing services, I have valued the positive encouragement. That has been the most needed.

    Stephen O' Regan (Co-Founder of Balcony TV/Director/Writer. NYC)

on June 21st 2017

This is an incredible story of harassment and injustice. The author has made numerous attempts to exonerate and clear his name but in doing so found himself in deeper trouble. The motivation for writing this autobiography stems not only for an urge for justice but more a cathartic attempt to find some sense in the …
