Caroline Goldsmith: Publishing Consultant

Everything you need to publish


With twenty-plus years of working with words, I am a practical and adaptable writer. I have produced new content to specification and also worked in collaboration with writers on existing drafts to finish and finesse their manuscripts. I am adept at working closely with clients and bringing their ideas to reality with clarity and care. Recent clients have included a leading business and life coach, a childcare expert, a writing duo and numerous fiction writers.

I have even been commissioned to write some books to specification for publishers:

What my clients say about me… 

Having discovered Caroline’s passion for great writing and extensive knowledge of the entire publishing process through mutual friends on Twitter, I commissioned her to write two books for the Summersdale trade non-fiction list, and I was delighted with her work.
Caroline responded to each brief with enthusiasm and relevant questions about the nature of the project. She then provided sample content before the requested deadline, and delivered the finished manuscript in an equally timely fashion, fulfilling the requirements of the brief perfectly. At all times, she has been a pleasure to work with, and a model of professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend Caroline as a collaborator on any publishing project and I look forward to working with her again.’  –
