I am pleased to write this review for Janie. I needed a piece I wrote edited and proofread but was concerned to be turning it over to a "stranger". I took the chance with Janie and she was a perfect choice. She was quick, responsible, knowledgable and sensitive to the piece. She cleaned it up, making it presentable and making me look like I knew shat I was doing. She can be sure that with the next thing I need to submit to publishers I will call her and no longer Ghost Busters.
Amazingly helpful at writing copy, content and simply proofing current content. Very talented writer in both fiction and non-fiction. Easy to work with, helpful and fully engaged.
"The Write Words" is an excellent editor. She finds every grammar and punctuation mistake in her review. She also excels at chasing the stream of thought that you write, looking for missing information, and trimming out all the extraneous fluff! She can do this even for writings in a niche field, like mine (astronomy) by following the logic that I set out. I would definitely recommend her for all of your editing and review needs!
I hired Kathleen to write sales copy and news releases for a new telecourse program that we were offering. Kathleen did an outstanding job. She asked the right questions, was very detailed, made adjustments as necessary and I was thrilled with the final copy. She was a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with her again. I highly recommend Kathleen for any sales copy and news releases that you might need! Mia Turpel Founder Performance Support Partners, LLC

I am an avid book reader. I average 3 books a week on my kindle. It amazes me at the errors in the copyrighted books I read. I have always wanted to do something like this, working from home. I travel two to three weekends per month judging cat shows all over the world. I read even at home on a daily basis. A good friend of mine has been editing from home for years. She has given me pointers and I feel I would be great at this job. I love reading, all genres. Sci-Fi to Paranormal to Romance and everything in between. Please consider me for your next project. My fees will be very reasonable and I would be willing to negotiate on multiple book projects!
