Ali McCart, Indigo Editing

Verified review

Ali edited a nonfiction manuscript for me. The manuscript was put together from a series of workshops. It's a challenge to take the spoken word and make it work, especially when it comes to organization, as a written piece. Ali did an amazing job with the edits, helping to make the work cohesive, and bringing clarity to the manuscript.

I decided to have him do some editing. He, accurately, recognized that my book proposal was too long. I'd been misled by one that said a proposal might be 100 pages. He reduced my overly long chapter descriptions to about a single sentence each. After that, I had to focus on writing so I haven't employed him for a while, but I may do so in the future. When I saw the firve stars I was influenced by the Amazon practice making five stars very rare. I was surprised to see "good" opposite five stars. Was it there before? I'd imagine most editors might not accomplish what he did and have tried to describe that. I think your rating scale needs work since it seems to me to limit the top rating to just "good." and Mr. Munkvold was better than that.

Laurel Airica is THE Editor You want to use for your project!!! I waited fifteen years to find an editor with whom I could trust the process of working on my manuscript. Laurel’s natural combination of strength, sensitivity, literary genius and mastery of the English language made it easy for me to work with her. I’m very pleased with her professionalism and very lucky to have gained a friend. Her kindness and care for each written word transcended the editor’s role, aiding me to undergo a profound healing experience. Laurel’s gift and skills are simply angelic! If she chooses to work on your manuscript, know that your writing will be shaped with love. I plan to employ her phenomenal services for my second book, and I can hardly wait to watch her magic touch hearts!

Erick did a fantastic job editing a manuscript for one of the writers I publish. The manuscript, a large historical fiction novel, was a difficult piece of material to work through yet, Erick still finished on time. He stayed in touch during the project so I knew how things were going. Erick also offered other services which I may use in the future. He has a great understanding of the writing and publishing mechanics which helps a lot in projects like the one I gave him to proof read. I really am pleased with the work he did. I will use him again I am sure of this!

In my entire experience of living in 8 countries, studying several languages, and attending as many universities, Tristan struck me as one of the most learned and sublime teachers ever. His ways of approaching the most intricate subjects is simply amazing. A truly eye-opening experience! I am really grateful.

Joanne B.
Verified review

Joan Rogers is an exceptional editor. She has worked with me on two novels. Walking Fish, the first novel won literary awards, and the second, Shadow Dreamer, will be published in 2016. Joan's ability to help with a continuity edit as well as her attention to detail, her fact checking, and her precise copy editing skill makes her a rare commodity in today's world of editing. I highly recommend her if you are at the stage of wanting a clean manuscript to submit to agents or presses.
