Book editing for authors & training for fiction editors.

Hello, I’m Sophie Playle. As a specialist fiction editor, I provide editorial services directly to writers – and I train other editors through my online courses, too. Between writing a manuscript and publishing a novel, all writers benefit from a helping hand.
