Sutton is amazing. If you want your script to have the polish it needs to succeed choose Sutton. More importantly she cares. There are so many shady editors that only want your money. I gave my script to two different Editors who had all these raving reviews. He did nothing for script. I found mistakes that the editor missed. Sutton caught all the mistakes. Because she cares about your work. She invests time into you. She also communicates with you.When I make it big, I am going to hire Sutton again. And I am going to pay her 5x what she is work.

I've worked with Marg on 5 projects (maybe more). Marg is not only detail-oriented with a fluid understanding of format and grammar, but she also understands when not to let that get in the way of telling a great story. Her insiteful, penetrating, direct and thorough feedback has been a real godsend for me in my writing process. Whereas some editors might be a little caught up in their want of validation and "my way or the highway," Marg leaves her ego at the door, her focus being the work, the story and helping the writer. I've learned far more about good solid writing from Marg than I ever did in college. I'm so glad to have found her. She has been the perfect complement to my growth as a writer.

In the summer of 2015 I hired Correct Copy Freelance to copyedit my 300-page self-published novel manuscript. Natalie stood out to me from the beginning because of her enthusiasm for my project and her professional skills as an editor. She completed the work within the time frame and at the price specified in the contract. Natalie was also willing to go beyond her duties as a copy editor to advise me on some content issues, which greatly improved the quality of my manuscript. I was able to submit my work with the confidence that it was the best manuscript it could possibly be. I would definitely recommend Correct Copy Freelance to fellow authors looking for honest and reliable copyediting services.

Carolyn has been a book coach, editor and midwife for me. She first helped me to find the book inside me, gently encouraged that process of discovery, guided me to put words to paper in the form of a book proposal, and finally, offered guidance to secure an agent and publishing contract. She is a unique combination of nurturing direction, organization and planning and creative inspiration, all packaged in her sweet and gentle ways. Carolyn has given me wings amd inspiration when I couldn't find my own. My ucoming first book would not have happened without her.

I never would have had my book published without Lisa’s help. She immediately saw problems (and solutions!) that had not occurred to me. She worked closely with me, reading and editing my work, and showing me how to develop my original idea into a much fuller, more interesting project…one that publishers would respond to. And, happily, they did. I recommend Lisa without reservation; my experience with her was both really valuable and enjoyable.

He took on my first book, A Junkies Nightmare, Coming Clean and did an incredible job. Not only is he professional and personable he's incredibly talented and affordable. If you need an editor, look no further, you've found the perfect guy for your job. I will be returning to him again and again, I feel like I found a partner more then just an editor.
