Amberley Lowis – Editor

Literary agent and former editor with ten years of experience working on a variety of fiction and non-fiction titles

Overview

Having worked in publishing for almost a decade, first in the editorial department of a trade publisher and more recently as a literary agent, I know the importance of making a book stand out in an ever-growing and crowded marketplace.


My experience has encompassed a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction titles across a range of genres, from literary and commercial fiction, crime and romance to autobiographies and cookbooks. Having worked with many authors – including winners of the Pulitzer, Booker and the Women’s Prizes – at every stage of the writing process and of their careers, I appreciate how daunting the task can be – and how receiving feedback on your manuscript can be even more so. I also understand the importance of constructive feedback and the difference it can make in the initial stages of the submission and publishing process.


Whether you’re querying agents and would like guidance with your submission letter, or if you’d like someone to cast an experienced eye over your manuscript, I’d be honoured to work with you to provide honest, motivating and constructive feedback that will ensure your book is read by that busy agent or editor – or even to help you down the self-publishing route.


I'd love to hear from you!
