Charlotte Abbott is committed to helping readers connect with new authors and ideas they will love. As a consultant, I empower authors, booksellers and other publishing partners with digital tools that make discovering good books more exciting and efficient, and engage influencers and book buyers within a healthy literary ecosystem. My strategic consultancy is grounded in my years as a senior editor at Publishers Weekly, and an acquiring editor at HarperCollins and Avon Books (in the U.S.), as well as in my fascination with digital reading and communities, which began with the first wave of e-books in 1999. @charabbott
