In my day job, I work as a commercial fiction editor as part of Avon, HarperCollins. We publish crime, thrillers, women’s fiction and saga, and I commission across all these areas.
I started out in publishing working as a non-fiction publishing assistant, and am fully aware of how difficult it can be to enter the industry. I am always happy to hear from people looking to get involved, so do feel free to contact me via email if you would like any advice.I also volunteer for the Society of Young Publishers, which is a fantastic resource for people wanting to know more about the industry and improve their networking skills.
You can find Avon and see what kind of books I work on here.
