Welcome to Oaken Bookcase Editing

My name is Anika and I'm a freelance editor and proofreader based in Brisbane, Australia. I love stories of all sorts, and can help you to make your novel, picture book or other document ready for publication.

I mainly work with genre fiction for all age groups, especially Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical or Romance, but I’m happy to consider other genres too.

My Services

Manuscript Assessment

I can suggest improvements in plot, pace and character, as well as the overall structure of the story.

Copy Edit

I can examine your manuscript in detail, suggest changes in grammar and punctuation, and suggest improvements to individual sentences.


I can proofread your manuscript, finding small spelling and punctuation errors and help to format your manuscript for self-publication or submission to publishers.
