You have a book inside you. Let me help you get it out. Every step of the publishing process, from your idea to your book in your hand.

Elle Carter Neal


I’m Elle Carter Neal, and I’ve edited over two million words in the course of nearly fifteen years in this industry. I’m also a published author, and I’ve been a ghostwriter on numerous projects. I completed one of my manuscripts from start to finish while pregnant with my second child, and with a two-year-old in tow. And I have worked on complex editing jobs while holding and soothing a baby with chronic reflux.

I know first hand the difficulties you face trying to juggle your creative ideas with the demands of everyday life.

I have a wealth of strategies to share with you that will make your writing project come together much more easily than going it alone. I’ve made tons of mistakes over the years and learnt a lot of what I know the hard way – I want you to be able to take a shortcut and save yourself time and money so that your book can begin to work for you as soon as possible.

Testimonials from a few editing clients and students

“I can’t believe how helpful it is to have my work picked apart the way you’ve done it. What I learned from your coaching was just as valuable as the hundreds of dollars I spent on “How-To” books on writing.

“It’s one thing to review the examples from real world examples of literature in those books, but it’s entirely different and much more helpful to have the weaknesses of my own writing shown to me. I’m really glad I chose to use your service.”

Paul Perron ~

Key by Kylie Leane“Without my editor I would never have come this far. This story would not be what it is without the marvelous input and amazing work of Elle Neal. I am so grateful for her insights and wise reflections. I once feared my dyslexia, but thanks to Elle that fear crumbled. She made me believe that I am capable of great things.  Thanks so, so much for the time you gave me, and the gift of your skills.”

Kylie Leane, author of The Chronicles of the Children series ~

The Lost Explorer by Michael Woods“I am immensely grateful to you for the good, solid advice you have given. You understood perfectly the problem I’m having… I’m considering all the possibilities you suggested.

“Your comments concerning the prologue are spot on and easily put right; yet I would never, never have seen it had you not pointed it out. Thanks.

“Your ability to isolate the pivotal points of the novel and show how they can be improved is nothing short of astonishing.”
