Hello, I’m Andrew Chapman, creator of The Bookalyser. I am a book and magazine editor and typesetter based in the UK, and have more than 20 years’ experience. I am a Professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), a Partner member of the Alliance of Independent Authors and a member of the Society of Authors.

I created The Bookalyser (or The Bookalyzer, if you’re in the US!) to help with my own editorial work – especially for identifying issues with texts that are hard for humans to spot – and decided to offer it to the wider publishing community. Over time I hope to add many more features – the paid-for version supports their development.

I work as a copy editor for publishers and individual authors (including self-publishers). And I’m available for hire.

Through my company, Prepare to Publish Ltd, I also provide wider services to publishers and indie authors, including non-fiction editing, typesetting/formatting and advice on self-publishing. I also have a network of trusted fellow experts I can recommend if my skills are not the right fit for your publishing project.
