ABOUT

Welcome to Readers Together (RT) I’m Kelly. I live in the North East of England, and when I’m not working on book-related projects, you can find me refereeing my young son, the dog, and cat.

I have always had a passion for books. I love reading, whether that be paperback, audiobook, or ebook. I’m also a stickler for attention to detail. So when the opportunity presented itself to proofread for an author I loved, I jumped at the chance. After doing that for quite some time (in fact, occasionally, I still do, time permitting) another author asked me to help edit their first book, and I caught the bug and never looked back, as they say. There is something uniquely satisfying about helping an author put their best product out into the world while still maintaining their individual voice and style.

Although I am British, the majority of my work has been with American authors using CMOS.

As a British reader, one of the things I struggle with the most from non-British authors writing British characters is how stereotypical they often are. So I created the Brit Check. (Full transparency, this may have been offered before and called something else.) It is always a fun project to work on. Helping authors with their British content and phrases, ensuring they don’t over-stereotype their characters. Authenticity for the win!

I found audiobooks over ten years ago, and it rapidly became my favourite medium and a passion. Nothing makes me happier than helping to make audiobook dreams come true, whether that’s helping with casting, production, final checks, or marketing.

If you need anything or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. 

​I have just created a discord for my clients. I wanted to have a place for my clients to connect with me and each other in a safe environment—free from judgement and prying eyes.

However, if you want something a little more laid back. I also have a Facebook Group – RT’s Hangout – where I chat about my current reads/ listens and books I’m working on with other book lovers and have the occasional author takeover and giveaway!

There are several books that I recommend for authors. 

Naughty Words For Nice Writers by Cara Bristol (A Romance Novel Thesaurus)

Thesaurus of the Senses by Linda Hart

The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman & Becca Puglisi - There are other books in this series that I also recommend. They cover subjects like: occupation, rural setting, urban setting, positive/ negative trait.

My device of choice is the Kindle Paperwhite which is waterproof and has Audible – a girl needs her eBooks and Audiobooks together and easily accessible.
