Georgia de Chamberet – Editor

Freelance editor and content creator

Overview

Do you have a loose baggy monster of a manuscript which needs taming? Are you coming unstuck over plot, characterisation, voice or pacing?
Would the encouragement and support of a trusted sounding board, a 'second eye', be beneficial to you as you write your best possible book?
Do you need some extra input when creating online content and planning your twitter feed?
Are you lost in a maze of clauses and legal jargon when a contract lands on your desk, or in a quandary about the sale of French translation rights? Would some consultancy about how to pitch and get results be useful?
If so, get in touch, I'd be happy to help!
