Editorial Consultancy

We all want a good story, told well. Editing is crucial and can make the difference between the success or failure of a book. An editor is an invaluable 'second eye,' a trusted sounding board, a gentle critic, who offers encouragement and helps the author write his or her best possible book.

The BookBlast® consultancy is where publishers, professional writers, agents & literary executors come to solve editorial issues.

Editing services offered by BookBlast® — structural editing | copy editing | rewriting & ghostwriting | mentoring | manuscript assessment.

Recent clients include — Rider, Maclehose Press, Virago, Eland Publishing, Darf Publishers, Harvill Secker, PEN Translates! Quartet Books, Eland Publishing; La Table Ronde, Grasset & Fasquelle and Massot éditions in Paris; as well as various literary agents and scouts.

Our focus is non-fiction (biography, autobiography, travel and creative non-fiction), literary, historic & translated fiction.

The BookBlast® mentorship programme helps you to produce a book of superb creative and marketable standards. We focus on plot and pace, character and style, point of view, place and atmosphere, and how they inform the overall book you are writing or have written. Ongoing editing and support are underpinned by industry experience and engagement. Several of our mentees have been published. Please click here to go to contact form. We do not sell or share your information with anyone else.
