In the nearly ten years I have known her, Leila Sales has consistently surprised and impressed me with her brilliant writing, incisive thinking, and keen understanding of the publishing industry in all its facets. I consider myself lucky to work with Leila, and I know others will benefit tremendously from her guidance.

Working with Leila was a dream. She understands the writing process from both a writer’s and an editor’s perspective, and that really comes through in her work. She’s intuitive, smart, insightful, and always gave guidance that was clear, actionable, and deeply grounded from a character and story perspective. Leila was also delightful to work with on a personal level—generous, funny, a great (and prompt!) communicator, and the consummate professional.

As an author and editor, Leila Sales knows the book industry inside and out. Author Leila can make a good story great. And editor Leila can take that great story to the next level you never knew was possible.
