Welcome. Do you need a skilled ghostwriter to write for you? An experienced professional to help you develop your book? A publishers' book editor to proofread or edit your manuscript? You've come to the right place.

I'm Charlie Wilson, The Book Specialist, an author, ghostwriter and book editor who provides a range of editorial and writing services to 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 to help you develop your book – whether you're self-publishing or submitting the book to agents/publishers; whether you're publishing in print or as an ebook; whether you're writing in US or UK English.

On this website you'll find details of my service range, encompassing:

Language polishing: proofreading and copy-editing

Developmental input: developmental editing and the book critique

Writing support: rewriting and ghostwriting

Happy browsing, and if you have any questions, please get in touch.


Below you'll find some examples of books I've worked on, either ghostwriting, rewriting, critiquing, developing, editing, proofreading or coaching the author through the writing process.
