You need this editor if you’re doing any kind of fiction. Katherine is my Saint Editor.
She encourages you and tells you *all* the ways to improve your work to be TRAD LEVEL professional.
As an indie author, I have to say: her insight is vast, and her wisdom on marketing is what many writers need to get them started.
She has everything you will need in-house for publication–for those of you who query or go indie.
As a writer herself, both trad and indie, you should make her part of your creative editing team.
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
