As book publishers, we require all manuscripts to be professionally edited. If the author doesn't already have an editor, our first call is always to Stuart Blandford, whose work is exemplary. We have never had a dissatisfied author when it comes to Mr. Blandford's services. He is thorough, experienced and reasonably priced.

That 's very important to me as a writer, because i need an editor who is wiling to assist me in my work, and he charged a reasonable price. You don't get better than that.

Mrs. Donna did a wonderful job of updating an existing resume I had. She was very quick to answer her email after my initial inquiry. From there our interactions only got easier. She listened to what job I was expecting to land and tailored my resume to reflect that. After two years without any hits I landed an interview a few weeks later using my new resume. I'm now working for that company.  Highly recommend.

I recently worked with Ingrid. She helped edit a novel I plan on publishing. When I first reached out to her, I got a quick response. That did not stop throughout the process. If I had questions, she responded quickly. Also, she kept me updated on where she was in the story. The editing was done way ahead of schedule, which leaves me plenty of time to review the notes. I have tried several editors and Ingrid has given me the best experience by far. I highly recommend her for your editing needs.

She became and Editor. She edited my book. This was the very first writing that I had ever done for publishing. Without her critique and her sitting with me and explaining the importance of my being myself and making sure that I wrote from the point of what I declared my book would be. She shared with me how important of writing down that people would know you from your writing. She met with me in my office. Never was Mrs. Mansfield in a hurry How Long Did It Take: It took 2 weeks and 3 days. What impressed me most of all was Mrs. Mansfield’s’ ability to pull out of me that what would had been necessary to enhance my book. Secondly a willing to listen to me read my book. My book and me as a new writer was very important to her. It was not just a job but care and concern. Some of the time spent in my office, especially the length of time just speaking to me about becoming a writer. Many times was over and beyond what I believe many other persons would have done. Her critiques and the work that she performed was over and beyond helping a new writer. The question is what could have been better: Exactly mothing!! What went wrong? If anything? Nothing. What could Pauline Mansfield do better in the future? Continue to share her love and concern for the people in which she helps. Please note: My use of the name YaQar YaQar is because I have 1 name which is legally "YaQar"

I had the privilege of using Ms. Wright’s skills upon the editing of my book, Belief Beyond. Years passed until its completion due to the compromised integrity of the manuscript causing a rewrite twice from a recorded version of the original, which was due to previously hired editors. Unaware of the degree of Ms. Wright’s portfolio of talent, I hired her on as yet another editor. Neither my time nor hers was wasted. The quality of her work was outstanding. It’s very rare in this day and age to get above and beyond what is paid for. The writing/editing work was completed and my book was published in a timely manner. The integrity of her work, attention to detail, and the enrichment of dialogue were all attributes of her professionalism. I paid for grammar and punctuation proofing; the rest was a gift. The talents of Ms. Wright are not taught nor can one learn them, especially to the degree she possesses. The overall flavor and underlying ambience is the polish a writer looks for in an editor but very few have a natural gift of words to create such. I know because I used several different editors over the years who put my work through a meat grinder! Ms. Wright unknowingly encountered this mess yet still was able to put my book together seamlessly. The foundation was brought out more clearly as to the authenticity of each story as well as references and credits solidifying the work. I recommend highly you not let the light of this diamond in the rough go unnoticed. She would by all means be a great asset to your work as she was to mine! Sincerely, Nancy Elbon

I have worked with Greta for almost 3 years. In that time, I have found her writing skills to be outstanding! I have asked her many times to proofread documents which have gone forward for report submission narratives. Greta is a great writer/editor whom I often look to when I need a second set of eyes.

Clear Communication is important in relaying information to others. The best ideas are meaningless if your audience cannot understand them, or worse, give up before you can fully explain it to them. This is where I come in! -webpage proofreading: including spelling, grammar, and punctuation. -editing foreign web copy in English to remove awkward phrasing. -limited HTML editing. Ask yourself this. Why should your audience listen to your smart idea if the message comes across as uneducated? Many websites contain copy errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation because they are quickly created and posted without being proofread first. Foreign websites are often mistranslated, making for awkward reading. I help to rephrase awkward sentences, making them easy to understand. Because most people are not web developers, syntax errors often pop up on your web pages, distracting your audience from your true message. I can help to resolve these issues, insuring your web pages display only what you want it to.
