… and thanks for visiting my website. My name is Seán Costello and I am a freelance book editor and literary consultant. I am based in the UK but have also worked for clients in Ireland and the United States. I enjoy editing both fiction and non-fiction, including titles dealing with film, music, biography, social history and popular culture.
This is where I keep my personal blog (when I can spare the time), which is mostly concerned with the art and craft of editing. Contributions and comments are welcome.
These are some of my publishing clients.
I have also provided script consultancy for BBC Films, the Irish Film Board and the UK Film Council.
To see a selection of some of the books I have worked on, have a look here.
I am always interested in hearing from publishers, authors and fellow editors. Do get in touch.
