Arabella Sophia is a freelance book editor trained by Chapterhouse, a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing & Proofreading, and the former editor at LID Publishing, Panoma Press, and Story Terrace. Bella tailors her approach to each individual client. Her advice is based on each author’s genre, target reader, publishing goals and budget, and she always ensures the guidance she offers is objective.

Bella is comfortable working across genres: her past projects range from horror novels and short stories to philosophical theories about the modern workplace. In terms of non-fiction books, Bella has worked on a lot of self-help novels, business biographies, leadership titles and wellbeing books. Bella is particularly passionate about the fantasy genre; Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson are among her favourite authors, and she studied the Ancient Greek classics like Homer’s Iliad at university. She has also worked on a number of YA and children’s books and find this a particularly gratifying area to work in; reading formed a huge part of her childhood, and it brings her joy to work on stories that will be similarly formative to future generations.

Before working in publishing, Bella worked extensively in the film and television industries for companies like Stylist Magazine and the BBC on the long-running drama Silent Witness. This experience helps her advise authors on how to make their book stand out in a world dominated by visual and short-form content.
