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.

The following table outlines my services, all of which can be tailored to your exact needs. Happy browsing, and if you have any questions, please get in touch.
