Write Copy Right

Verified review

Write Copy Right is excellent at detailed copy editing. A great bonus is how remarkably strong she is at catching overall logic flaws, problems with style and the flow of the story. She caught some important problems in my novel that might not have been fixed but for her examination. She noted deficits regarding some character development that I had neglected. Her comments really improved my book. If you've been in the weeds for a long time on your manuscript, Write Copy Right has the fresh eyes you need.

Theresa is the best! She's my go to editor for my articles, scripts and letters. Frankly she's the only editor I trust to review and make corrections on my work. Highly recommend!

I sent Linda my book manuscript and was amazed to see how many grammatical errors I had made while writing the book. She corrected my slang, out of date jargons, and made suggestions to correct or relocate paragraphs to other chapters. She also advised me about statements that should be altered to avoid legal action from individuals or establishments named within the chapters. My manuscript went from being an unorganized, choppy, collection of events, characters, and facts into a smooth flowing, easy to read document. The book is currently being evaluated by the editors of a major publisher which makes me very grateful to Linda and her grasp of the English language and ability to edit so perfectly.

After eleven books together, I can't imagine working with anyone else. From a technical point of view, she doesn't just go through with a red pen (or comment tool), she explains her reasoning, especially if the correction could go in different directions. That extra information not only helps me in that book, it sticks in my head and I like to think my writing has improved as a result. On the creative side, she provides sound input on consistency and story development, ensuring that my characters stay true to themselves. This is no easy task in a true series where the same core cast appears frequently. I use spreadsheets and flowcharts to keep them all safe, and knowing she's as invested in them makes her my first and only choice in editors. But, I think my favorite part of working with Jessica is getting little insights into how the book made her feel. We're all readers, aren't we? A book can be technically sound, but is it enjoyable? Jessica will leave comments in the draft on parts that really struck her (good and bad), and summarize her overall impression in a way that is both constructive and encouraging.

For the work completed in copy editing my manuscript, Joan did extraordinary work. Although the job was for copy editing only, she also provided general editing feedback. It is clear that she read and re-read my manuscript several times and invested many hours to this project.

We used Wendy for copy-editing and voice-over work. Her quick response time, professionalism and expertise were exactly what we needed. As a small, start-up, we needed someone to guide us and deliver quick results. Wendy did just that! She was able to work with tight deadlines and provide constructive criticism for us to improve our marketing materials and strategy.

To the people who know me I am the best editor available who never actually majored at college in English. This allows people to get a rather high quality result for less, as I do currently charge lower fees due to suffered brain damage that causes memory issues and bad insomnia.
