Tatiana exceeded my expectations in delivering her editorial assessment and proofreading of my memoir. Her editorial assessment was well organized, deeply insightful and actionable. She seemed to take a genuine interest in the quality of the resulting work and the storyline, and made many suggestions that made real improvements from the standpoint of the reader, in terms of character development and narrative coherence. As a proofreader, she was very thorough. Invariably, her recommendations were spot on.
It was a joy working with Tatiana and I will certainly do it again if the opportunity arises.

My experience working with Tatiana Wilde exceeded all my expectations and was superb in every way. She clearly has many years of experience of editing that she drew upon, she was extremely professional and did exactly what she said she would do and, very significantly, she was always very positive and accommodating. I recommend her highly to anyone who would like a superior job of editing done on their work.

Tatiana recently finished editing my debut book to my utmost satisfaction. Never having worked with an editor before, she made the process incredibly easy and fun. Her prior experience with travel memoirs and her extensive knowledge of the Middle East made her feedback on-point and persuasive. Tatiana's adherence to a tight schedule helped me manage the complex tap-dance between copy and visual, even if that meant she had to work during her preplanned vacation.
For her quality of work, her work ethic, I recommend Tatiana to every author out there seeking an incredible editor.

A book editor with over 20 years' experience in the industry, as Senior Commissioning Editor at publishers such as I.B.Tauris and Rough Guides, I specialise in literary non-fiction, memoir, biography, current affairs, travel and history as well as corporate literature. Having worked with highly successful, established authors as well as rising stars and first-time authors I am passionate about helping writers attain their best work in a collaborative, creative and authentic way.
I work with writers at all stages of their projects – from initial concept to printed book. The comprehensive editing and consulting services I offer include editorial assessments, tailored advice on how to submit proposals and manuscripts to agents and publishers, direction on profile enhancement, as well as intensive line-editing, restructuring, plot development, copy-editing and proofreading.
As the author of four books, I am lucky to have experience from 'the other side', which I find invaluable in being able to connect with and support writers starting out on their own paths to becoming published authors.
