Diane Hall: Editor; Writing Coach and Mentor; Publisher


Helping authors to create beautiful books and solid readerships

Want to work with me?

I’m an editor and publisher, with more than two decades of experience shaping, enhancing and publishing books of all genres. As well as editing, I coach and mentor new writers and host author workshops and events.

In the last decade, I launched TWH Publishing, an independent press (you can find these titles on

As well as signing authors under contract, I have many self-publishing clients, who return again and again for my knowledge, guidance and services. 


Due to my high standards, the commitment I give to the authors I work with, and the time I have available, I can only work with a limited number of authors each year.


Read the testimonials from clients I have worked with to see the value I could add to your book and your career as an author, then contact me on if you'd like to apply for my help.

Applying to become one of my clients is not scary: it’s simply a questionnaire about your book project, your plans and expectations as an author, and an acceptance of my terms and conditions. I want to be the right mentor for you, just as much as I need you to be a good fit for me; the work we produce will be all the more richer as a result, I promise you.

From a pricing point of view, working with me won’t cost the earth, though you will be expected to invest in the quality of your book so that it appeals to a bigger audience. Though there is absolutely nothing wrong with self-publishing (it can often prove a better option for some authors than signing away their rights to a publisher or agent), creating a good quality product is requisite when working with me. I don’t offer packages, as every project I work on is different, and because the help I offer is purely bespoke.
