What Caroline Says About Mentoring

Writing a successful book is about craft as well as talent, and 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 work gets 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 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, not the editor’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.
