Book proposals

Book proposals

Having worked closely with a top London agent specialising in wellbeing titles for major publishers (Penguin, Random House, Orion, Hay House), I know exactly how to craft your book proposal to give it the best chance of being read by a prospective agent or publisher.

If you want you and your work presented in the best possible light, there is a format that must be followed and key areas that must be covered.

I can help maximise the chances of getting your proposal read by a prospective agent or publisher by helping you crystalise your message, convey your uniqueness in a crowded market, and get people to sit up and take note.

Some of the books for which I edited the proposal include: 

The Anxiety Solution: A Quieter Mind, A Calmer You, by Chloe Brotheridge – published by Mitchel Beazley (Penguin) – ‘See image above’

Crystals: How to Tap into Your Potential Through the Healing Power of Crystals, by Katie-Jane Wright – published by Aster. – ‘See image above’

Farmacy Kitchen Cookbook: Plant-Based Recipes For Conscious Living, by Camilla Fayed – published by Aster. – ‘See image above’

Book manuscripts

Whether you have an agent and a book deal or are looking to self-publish, I can help research, edit and polish your manuscript so it’s ready for print or e-publishing.

Manuscripts I’ve written or worked on include:

The Good Gut Guide: Delicious Recipes and a Simple 6-Week Plan for Inner Health and Outer Beauty, by Liz Earle – published by Spring (Orion).
For this book I did all the research and wrote the first draft.

The Anxiety Solution: A Quieter Mind, a Calmer You by Chloe Brotheridge – published by Mitchel Beazley (Penguin).
I edited the initial manuscript before it was submitted to the publishers.

The Banyan Tree: A Magical and Mystical Adventure Leading to a Deeper and Richer Life Experience, by Andrew Hyde – self-published.
I worked extensively on the initial manuscript to both edit and suggest sections upon which to expand, as well as how to develop the characters.


'Katy was brilliant to work with. She is a great communicator, did all the work on time and was a pleasure to work with. She did a great job editing my book The Anxiety Solution, which went on to reach number 3 in the charts on the whole of Amazon. She helped to create the structure of the book, which many people have remarked was excellent. Thank you so much Katy!'.
