WHAT WE DO.
Our list is small now, but our compass is very much international in the voices we look to collaborate with.
IDEATION. PRODUCTION. REALISATION
Take your writing to a new level with a trusted consultancy led by Joey Quince, a London literary ghostwriter and editor with over a decade of experience working with major publishers worldwide. Our network spans publishing professionals around the globe, including commissioning editors at Penguin Random House, Faber & Faber, Scribe, Bloomsbury and more. In his career, Joey has written, edited and sold everything from published memoir to genre fiction, business to academic books, sports books to children’s stories. This gives us an excellent breadth of knowledge and experience to draw from. As a trusted consultancy, our literary gun for hires are connected with some of London’s and New York’s top literary agents, publishers, and PR companies.
IDEATION. PRODUCTION. REALISATION.
Joey has the right instincts and requisite skill to identify what a narrative really needs in order to give it wings—whether it’s prose that merits further tweaking or a character that requires more nuance. He’s patient and meticulous, and his suggestions instructive without being intrusive. In the projects that we’ve collaborated on as editors, he has been a joy to work with, and I would recommend him very highly.

1. BOOK IDEATION: A BLANK CANVAS
You have the idea - the spark - of a story you want to tell. Perhaps it is your own story, or perhaps it is a recording of history or a work of fiction. We will be your walking, talking brainstorm to turn the spark into a flame.
2. GHOSTWRITING: ON SET
You now have a concept for a book and would like to commission a professional author to compose your story—in your voice—and bring your vision to life.
3. EDITING: THE CUTTING ROOM
You have written your book, but it needs to be professionally edited. Unlike most consultancies that offer the standard copy-edit, content edit, or manuscript assessment, we go deeper. Joey Quince’s Creative Copy-Edit methodology has unleashed the potential of a plethora of books before hitting the shelves.
4. AUTHOR COACHING: THE WORD WHISPERER
You want a collaborator on your shoulder who can coax you, challenge you, and provide elements of all of the above. Hire a professional publisher to work with you and guide you on your journey.
