Paul Fulton - Editor

Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom

A long-time wordsmith, I am able to copy-edit with creativity and precision.

Overview

I see my job as helping authors' talent and vision shine through. Consistency and accuracy are at the heart of what I do. I am involved mostly with non-fiction at the moment, but I can contribute significantly to fiction as well.

I have recently been working with the lovely crowdfunding London publisher, Unbound, on a wide, and ever-growing, range of excellent projects.
