BookBlast® can help publishers, authors, agents & literary executors solve editorial issues.
Editing is crucial and can make the difference between the success or failure of a book. An editor is an invaluable 'second eye,' a trusted sounding board, a gentle critic, who offers encouragement and inspires an author to write his or her best possible book.
Jane Shilling, Daily Telegraph — "On the Wilder Shores of Love: A Bohemian Life is edited with affection and grace by de Chamberet [. . .] a deliciously readable monument to a writer who combined a steely resilience and capacity for hard work with an elegant frivolity and a voracious appetite for love, beauty and adventure."
