Emily Randle - Editor

Emily runs her own Editing and Rights Consulting business, working alongside indie authors, indie publishers and consulting for big name international literary agencies.

During her time at the agency, she worked with best-selling authors such as Stephen Fry, Paula Hawkins, Owen Jones, Carole Matthews, Sarah Vaughan and Rosie Walsh, alongside national treasure children’s authors such as Michael Morpurgo and Jacqueline Wilson. She was runner up for the David Miller Bursary in the Deborah Rogers Rights Award 2017. At the start of 2020, Emily launched her own freelance book editing and rights selling business under the name Randle Editorial & Literary Consultancy. She also regularly consults for big literary agencies such as Janklow & Nesbit and Johnson & Alcock, in both Rights and Primary Agenting departments.


“A writer friend recommended Emily. Having beta read her draft, the transformation following Emily’s advice was an exciting, tense, riveting story. Professional in her approach, Emily is like a beam of light guiding you in the right direction. Her expertise and ability to understand the creative mind is an invaluable tool.”

– M.J.Jerome

“Emily was both thorough and prompt in dissecting my work and gave me detailed feedback on both the positives of my draft and the areas that could benefit with adaptation. I have found her honest, genuine and warm throughout and her suggestions for redrafting were insightful and explained, which has enhanced my own writing skills. I would not hesitate to use her services again.”

– Reggie Walton

“I found Emily’s suggestions perceptive, informative, and easy to understand. She has given me insightful, detailed advice about my character development, pacing, structure and setting. I highly recommend you using her services because she is both professional and diligent in her approach.”

– Diana Coombes

"I am so glad to have worked with Emily, who provided in-depth, wonderful feedback on the first draft of my novel. She was very encouraging and clearly passionate about what she does. I was getting a bit lost with some of the threads of my story - Emily was excellent at identifying and exploring these, giving me a much clearer idea of how to move forward. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for constructive feedback and to strengthen their story."

- Becky G

"The MS appraisal from Emily was excellent and super encouraging. I'd been flagging a little on the project and she's given me the push I needed to get back to it. I'd thoroughly recommend her!"

- C Marchant


As an incredibly experienced rights professional, Emily brings flair, rigour and a deep knowledge of the market to every assessment she does for us. In fact, during her time in the industry she has worked with some of its biggest names and is keen to use this eye for commerciality to help aspiring authors make the most of their manuscripts. It is this knowledge of working with independent publishers and boutique literary agencies that make her reports so informative and sensitively considered. She takes a well-rounded view of authors’ intentions and offers ways to enhance the integrity of your voice through knowledge of the craft.


Nothing excites me more than finding a new and refreshing literary voice and seeing a manuscript come to life! I pride myself on clear, open communication, careful attention to detail and supportive team work. As a freelance editor, my role is also to be a sounding board for the client’s ideas, to support writers through the challenges of editing their manuscripts ready for submission or publication, and to offer insider knowledge of the publishing industry. It is my aim to help budding authors reach their goal, whatever that may be.


I love upmarket/book club fiction, literary fiction and narrative non-fiction, such as that from Dolly Alderton, Joanna Cannon, Elizabeth Day, Gavin Extence, Bernadine Evaristo, Jonathon Franzen, Matt Haig, Sally Rooney and Elizabeth Strout. I also love women’s fiction that tugs on the heart strings such as Rowan Coleman or Rosie Walsh. I enjoy reading about human resilience and strength in times of crisis, and shrewd observation of the human condition.
