What is your specialism within book publishing?
I am a book coach and editor/proofreader. I primarily work with female small business owners who want to write a book to help their current and future clients learn more about what they do and how they can help. I begin by helping my clients own their authorial voice and show them that they don’t need lots of free time to write a book. Then, I help them structure and polish their work.
Can you describe what you do in 10 words or fewer?
I help busy people get their ideas onto the page.
What led you to go freelance?
Do you work primarily for publishing companies or independent authors or a mix?
I only work for independent authors.
What’s the best part of doing what you do?
What do you know now that you wish you had known when you started your freelance journey?
How many books are in your TBR (to be read) pile/list? And do you plan to read them all eventually?
I do plan to read them all eventually, but I don't think I want to know how many books are waiting to be read because the ‘list’ grows faster than I read (I bought 3 books just this week).
Do you prefer physical books or ebooks?
Do you have any advice for anyone considering a career in publishing?
What is your favourite children’s book and your favourite adult’s book?
My favourite children’s book is Harriet the Spy (1964) by Louise Fitzhugh. My favourite adult’s book is The Mill on the Floss (1860) by George Eliot.
