Editing Service

Do you keep getting knock-backs from literary agents?

An objective view of your book from someone in the publishing industry can help you solve problems such as tangled storylines, flat characters and lack of narrative drive.

As a published author, I know just how soul-destroying it is when the rejection letters are piling up; I also know how tailored your novel needs to be before a literary agent will champion it. That’s why I’ve become an editor for the Blue Pencil Agency.

I will give your novel my all – reading it and writing a report about it, including an in-depth look at story, plot, structure, pace and prose. I am particularly interested in women’s fiction, character-led fiction, book group fiction and historical fiction.

About me: My debut novel, The Maid’s Room, was published in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton in November 2017. My second novel, The Swap, will be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 18 April 2019. Alongside Literary Agent of the Year Madeleine Milburn, I judged this year’s Blue Pencil First Novel Award.  I am represented by Rowan Lawton of Furniss Lawton.
