An insight into my life as an editor
‘A letter is a good way to go somewhere without
moving anything but your heart’ – Phyllis Theroux
The last thing you want is to sign up to another newsletter so that someone can market themselves at you. I get that. Which is why I don’t do newsletters. I just write letters, as though I’m writing to a friend.
Because if you enjoy the freedom and challenge of running an editorial business and your ideal Friday night includes a bubble bath and a good book … I think we’re going to get along just fine.
‘Thanks for the good content and friendly conversation you provide. I always look forward to reading what you share’
‘I love reading your letters. I find them so inspirational and I hope you continue to keep posting and sending them.’
‘Thank you for your fab newsletters and information – I look forward to receiving them! I love your writing style.’
‘Thanks for being so transparent about what it’s like to run your own editing business!’
Every two weeks (no more, but sometimes less) I write and send out a Liminal Letter. I write about what it’s really like running fiction editing business, and about my continued efforts to cultivate a creative and meaningful life – as an editor, a writer, a business owner, a traveller, and a homely soul.
And though I write about my thoughts and experiences, I hope you’ll see a little bit of yourself reflected back. And if there are any Liminal Pages special offers to be had, you’ll be the first to know, too.

A free resource for editorial business owners
When you sign up to Liminal Letters, you’ll also receive my Project, Profit and Efficiency Tracking spreadsheet and guidelines. This is something I use in my own business, and I find it invaluable. It helps me track my projects, set my rates and learn my editing speed – and know what I’m earning per hour and per thousand words. All useful stuff! I hope it helps you in your editorial business, too.
