Jon Appleton – Editor, Mentor, Consultant and Indie Author/Publisher

I’ve just gone freelance after 20 years in-house at major trade publishers, including Hachette, Scholastic and Bloomsbury/A&C Black. I’m keen to work with authors of all kinds to help them shape their careers – from newbies to those in mid-career. Talk to me if you want to match the stories you want to tell with the kinds of books publishers want to acquire. I offer all stages of editing and general consultancy. Alternatively, if you’re looking to pursue the indie route, I can advise on all aspects of the process – I’ve just self-published my debut novel, Ready to Love – a comedy about office life, relationships and saucepans. You can see what I’m up to on my and follow me on Twitter at @appletonsbooks. My email address is: Or call me on 07765 900584.
