Meet Holly

My skills, knowledge and experience will make your novel shine, and I’ll support and empower you on every step of your editorial and publishing journey.

Whether you’re looking for an in-depth edit, an expert pair of eyes on your submission to agents or guidance on your next steps to publication, I’m here to do that and more. As a professional who knows the publishing industry inside and out, I can give you the editorial and publishing support you need to feel confident and prepared as you launch your novel to the world.

I know the business of books, not just what it takes to make an editorially brilliant read – but how to get readers too. From personally hand-selling books as a Waterstones bookseller, all the way to releasing bestsellers with publishing houses (including Canongate and Bloomsbury’s imprint Head of Zeus), I’ve built my experience across all stages of book publishing.

I’ve edited and commissioned all types of novelists, from established authors to brand-new debut voices and self-published writers. I tailor my services exactly to each author’s needs, whether it’s working closely together on developmental edits or demystifying the editorial and publishing process.

In fact, shall we chat a bit more about that and how I can help you?
