Do you need an experienced book editor to develop your work? A respected writer to help you reach your potential? A publishers’ copy editor and proofreader to knock your language into shape? You’ve come to the right place.

I’m Charlie, an author, a book editor and a bibliophile. Essentially, I live and breathe books. As Charlotte Wilson, I write soulful coming-of-age fiction for young adults. As The Book Specialist, I work as an editor and proofreader for publishers and authors worldwide.

Over the past decade I’ve helped many hundreds of authors on their journey from rough draft to published book. From concept to print, I have the skills and creative flair to help you polish your book – whether you’re submitting to agents/publishers or self-publishing; whether you’re publishing in print or as an ebook; whether you’re an experienced writer or an aspiring author.

On this website you’ll find details of my service range, from proofreading and copy-editing to developmental editing and writing book critiques, along with details of my fiction and blog posts on inspiration, creativity, writing, publishing and books, beautiful books. Happy browsing, and if you have any questions, please get in touch.
