Caroline Hulse is a writer of book club fiction with offbeat humour. Her work has been published in fourteen languages and optioned for television.

WHAT CAROLINE SAYS ABOUT EDITING

Writing a successful book is about craft as well as talent, and I believe authors at all levels benefit from external insight. Many of us, when asking for editorial feedback, want to hear ‘it’s perfect, don’t change a thing!’ –  often published authors secretly want to hear this too! – but that isn’t what you’ll get from me. My books get immeasurably better as a result of thoughtful edits, and I want you to feel the same about yours.

Before looking at how your book works on a sentence level, I will firstly consider it as a whole, and focus on making the recommendations that will have the biggest impact. A book’s vision is the author’s, so any changes and decisions will ultimately be yours, but I will provide direction to help you think these through. All the while, I will champion your book’s strengths, and help you feel energised for the work ahead.

I read widely: particularly crime and thrillers, book club and literary fiction, and historical and women’s fiction.
