"I was blown away by the suggestions and the amount of thought that went into both the overall report and the comments on the MS. No punches were pulled, which is exactly what I hoped for. The report made me think long and hard and helped me to identify where to strengthen the story and characterizations. Highly recommended."

"Rosalie's editing skills, both on the page and working directly with our authors, are exceptional. Her passion for literature and the written word is second to none. Without fail she hits the nail on the head in identifying both negative and positive aspects of a manuscript and offers solutions and feedback with the combination of tact and brutal honesty that every writer dreams of in an editor. Her talent, dedication and reliability whilst working with us surpassed all expectations."

C. A. Hill
author of Speculative Fiction novel 'Testament'
I am an experienced industry professional, not just someone who likes reading. I have real-world experience of working with bestselling authors. The first fiction novel I commissioned and edited achieved great commercial success, resulting in book-prize nominations, features in the media, and an audiobook deal. I know what it takes to bring a book up to publication standard!
I am responsive, reliable and ensure that your manuscript has my full attention. I take on a limited number of projects each month to ensure I have sufficient time to devote to your work. I am a member of professional body the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and take part in training courses to ensure that my skills stay up to date.
I am meticulous, dedicated and creative, and I love working with talented authors to see their novels take shape under my guidance. I will be on hand throughout the editing process and you can always ask me any questions or seek clarification via email or Skype.
Thank you for stopping by. I’m Rosalie, a professional editor and literary consultant.
I have worked in the publishing industry for over six years, in both independent and multinational publishing houses. I also have a First Class degree in English Literature and a long-standing love of all things literary.
I delight in helping authors develop their novel into the best it can be, and you can rest assured that my guidance is clear, structured and honest.
I live in the U.S. (sunny climes of Georgia) but I am from the U.K. (not-so-sunny climes of Cambridge), so I am proficient in both American and British English.
I'm excited at the prospect of meeting you and exploring ways in which we can work together. Please head over to my contact page for a free, zero-obligation sample edit.
So, why choose me?
I understand how tough it can be to make a living as an author, and I keep this in mind when setting my prices, which represent great value for money.
"Rosalie’s knowledge and experience of creative writing has helped to achieve success in the publication of my first book. It has been a pleasure to work with her. The promised edited manuscript arrived exactly as predicted. Her notes clear with inspirational suggestions, in fact, a masterclass on how to write. Susie Kelly, best selling author of Safari Ants, Baggy Pants And Elephants, recommended Rosalie’s editorial services. I am delighted that she did!"

"A writer friend recommended Rosalie Love. I was so pleased she did. As an unknown writer, working with Rosalie was a revelation to me. Not only eradicating the mistakes, but her help and advice put new life and substance into my writing. I cannot wait to work with Rosalie again."
