My portfolio of recent proofreading and copy-editing work includes:
Gagged and Bound: A book of puns, one-liners and dad jokes
Gagged and Bound is a riotous, rapid-fire collection of over 500 original gags written by pun-loving jokesmith Nick Jones and published by Full Media Ltd. With a mixture of witty one-liners, playful puns and dubious dad jokes, coupled with some great visual gags illustrated by Tiffany Sheely, Gagged and Bound will leave you grinning like a maniac – so probably best not to read it while travelling on public transport.
Soul Train & Other Spine-chilling Stories
This collection of short stories is full of shocks, surprises and twists. In ‘Remotely Drunk’ a man discovers that a new set of batteries has given his TV remote special powers; in ‘Spade’ a grieving woman has a life-changing encounter with a stranger in a cafe; in ‘Beach’ a couple are baffled when mysterious messages appear in the sand. From time-travelling exploits to adventures in space, these stories vary in setting and theme, but they will all keep you guessing – right up to an often grisly end.
