When working with an editor, the relationship must be based on clear communication, trust, and sharing the same vision for your manuscript – i.e. making it the very best it can be.

To any who are trying to choose a competent editor to use in the process of improving the polish and readability of their written work, let me make a suggestion worth considering. I spent three years writing a science fiction story that I thought would eventually become a best seller. It didn’t. I was told why in no uncertain terms by a reader who posted a critique of the work. Her point was this; “I don’t care how good the underlying story is. If the author didn’t care enough about the reader to have the work proofread and edited, I cannot and will not give it a good review.” She didn’t, and she was right. After I found Anne to go over the manuscript, point out its weaknesses and correct them, I fully understand why the bad review was given. Anne is thorough, competent and very easy to work with. Her courteous and professional style made it a pleasant and completely stress free experience. I intend to have her do all five of my books. I wish she would’ve been with me in this process from the start. It would’ve saved me both time and money, but most importantly, my work would’ve been seen from the start in its best presentation.
Thank you Anne.

I was looking for a copy editor with a UK background to help me prepare my UK-set book for the US market. Anne not only helped me reach the right pitch in terms of grammar/ spelling but also to tighten the prose in general. Her suggestions really spurred me on to polish the Poison People and I am delighted with the final product.

Anne copy edited and proofread the final book in my series, (The Seraphim) and it was a complete delight to work with her. She explained every edit she made, helping me where I clearly needed it but was never rude or pushy. And for a dyslexic author, you have no idea how hard that is to find! I would work with Anne again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable editor that knows what they are doing.
😊 Thanks again!

I just wanted to take a moment to respond to my initial review of your edits. I cannot express my gratitude of what you have accomplished editing my manuscript. I imagine how difficult the process must have been. My story was clearly a mess. However, you have transformed it into something remarkable. I commend your patience with my grammatical short comings. You are truly an artist at what you do. The content and language flows so much better. I started writing this story about 7 (I mean seven <- see I'm learning) years ago, and although my writing progressed, it definitely needed a professional's touch. Once I complete my final review I will send it back for the punctuation check. It will likely be in the next week or so. I plan to edit the ending and write another chapter in the coming months, and hope that you will continue to help with your editing skills. Thank you again.

Hope this finds you doing well! Here is another paper for you to look at. I also enjoy working with you! Not that you care to know, but I would like to share that I got perfect scores on the last two papers you helped me with. Thank you,
Good Morning Anne
I would like to say thank you once again! I made perfect scores on all of the papers. I look forward to continue working together, if there is any other way to contact you please let me know. I might take summer off from school, so you probably won’t hear from me until August. But I would like to keep keep in touch, being that you been of tremendous help. Again thank you so much, you’re the best.

I had a chance to go through all of your comments last night. They were very helpful & illuminating for me.
I wish I had seen these comments a while back – the already written chapters would be much better….. at least I can apply to future chapters.
I see consistent themes of particular words getting me in trouble again & again.
I also appreciate all the work you did with the paragraphing – I can see the appearance looks much, much better on the page.
I have the next section of Chapters ready – according to word it is 40,549 words, so when you have the time, I’d be very happy if you could continue.
I highly recommend Anne. She is a professional with great skill at writing, editing, and proofreading. What’s more, she gives 150% to anything she attempts to do. You are in very good hands when you work with Anne.
I used your editing services for an important business proposal. I believed this document to be sound as written and was surprised to find that there were several grammatical errors in the document. I would like to thank you for improving our proposal; our client was extremely impressed with the proposal and we won the contract. I highly recommend Anne to all of our business associates.
I’d like to thank you for the great job you did editing my document. Great editing. Not only did you edit my grammar, but you also made some style and word choice improvements. Also, it has been a priceless grammar exercise for me.
I will definitely use you again and refer you to other people.
I would like to thank you for a job well done. I just passed my final defense and completed my doctoral degree today. It would have been tough without your great service.
Once again your service has guided me to an excellent grade. I told all my Texas A&M grad colleagues about your service as we are going through the nurse practitioner program. I will continue using your service even more now that my son will be starting college next year. I’m just very, very grateful that your company exists. I wish your proofreading/editing service the best life has to offer. Once again, thank you.
I am VERY, VERY, VERY HAPPY WITH YOUR SERVICE!!! Thank you so much for your help!!!! I will refer your copy-editing service to everyone in my writing circle. Keep up the great work!!
Again, thank you.
Thanks for all your help with the book. I really appreciate your advice and helpful comments and insights. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Working with Anne hits the jackpot. New to publishing, I didn’t know what to expect and it was a delightful experience. Anne was informative, concise, and creative with her suggestions. I knew immediately my book was in the hands of a pro who only wanted my success. I am a lifelong fan!
I love the way you’ve positioned yourself. With your sample edit, it made it plain the difference between what you and others do. You ‘had me’ when I reviewed that chapter.
