Testimonials

“Anne, thank you so much – you have been such a great help with writing my book.

“Your clear understanding of the English language gained over many years as a professional editor, freelance writer and proofreader has proved invaluable – I am not sure how I could have done it without you.”

P.J. Griffiths, author

I love it! You have all the best words. Thank you so much. I would never have been able to put it so well myself.

Victoria Walters, Healthy You, Healthy Planet

Your press release resulted in two lead articles in my local paper, and now I’m writing a regular column for them. You are really talented. I will be calling on your proofreading services when I finish my next book.

Karen Bromley, Maya Wellbeing

Anne has really assisted me with my draft manuscript. She  provided both the amended clean copy of my work and the original work with corrections, which made it easy to review.

“She kept me updated throughout her copy-edit so I was aware when I could anticipate the work would be returned. I found her alterations really enhanced my manuscript and were in keeping with the style of the prose so the original author keeps their own voice

Siobhan Davies, creative writer
