$1 a Page provided detailed editing for early drafts of two of my novels. Valerie Jean's thorough analysis and keen insight helped me to strengthen my main characters motives, build more tension in the story lines and tie up loose ends in the plots. Her editing produced more valuable feedback than any other critiques I had ever received. I had previously used other types of editing services, a book doctor and a workshop facilitator, but Valerie Jean's $1 a Page editing service gave me so much more. It included a page-by-page edit of the 350-400 page manuscripts, a chapter-by-chapter summary (which was particularly helpful to me in revising), and a summary analysis for each manuscript. In addition, the service included a face-to-face consultation at the end of the editing job, where she answered all the questions I had concerning her edits and critique, and where she generously offered more creative ideas about my work. I am grateful to Valerie Jean for helping me to create a more polished manuscript that I was then ready to submit to publishers. To date, both of my novels: Murder and The Masquerade and Blind Delusion have been positively received by readers. I am indebted to Valerie Jean for her close reading of my work, timely turnaround, and helpful suggestions. I could not have asked for anything more than the dedicated and professional editing work that $1 a Page delivered.
