Esther Harris

Esther Harris has twenty years experience as a marketing professional, journalist and book publicist.

Esther has an instinctive understanding of what makes a book and author newsworthy and she regularly achieves writers meaningful editorial coverage across print, online and radio, in places such as The Mirror, The Guardian, The Independent, The FT, The Daily Mail, Huffington Post, BBC Radio 2, The Jeremy Vine Show and more.

Esther is an experienced editor and loves getting her teeth into a manuscript, helping authors shine and tell the story they always wanted to tell in a way that fits best with dual market needs. You have to sell a book twice over – the first time to editors in the industry and then all over again to the reader. As a fiction writer herself, she understands how hard it can sometimes be to get the story in your head on to the page – without losing the magic! In her spare time, Esther writes short stories and mentors new writers. She has a Masters degree in Creative and Critical Writing and now mentors female writers as part of the WoMentoring Scheme, run by best-selling author Kerry Hudson. Esther has been obsessed with books since the age of two, when she used to chill with her Ladybird library.
