Pina Bird for Chicken Livers and Artichoke Hearts. 16 April 2021
I had the pleasure of working with Katherine Black of Best Book Editors. She helped me with my new children’s book that will be coming out in July 2021.
She has a delightful upbeat mannerism that makes you feel good right from the start.
As you release your precious thoughts on paper to her, be assured you are in good hands. She respects your work and helps with suggestions that you may or may not want to keep.
All through the process, she has a way of continuing to encourage you and your work. Katherine has added a bonus that most editors do not offer. She gives you marketing once you have published your book. It’s her gift to you for using her services. She goes that extra mile for you, which I so appreciate.
I have worked with many editors, and I like her style. I find her trustworthy and transparent as a business professional.

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.
