Christine's thoroughness helped simplify some unnecessary complex language and removed punctuation and grammatical oversights. She took the time to understand the messages I was trying to convey and respectfully suggested simpler options to create greater impact. I will go to Christine for my future editing needs, and I highly recommend her services.

If you have a project that you care deeply about then Christine is the perfect person for the job. Finding a good editor is a lot harder than one might think. Christine was a shining beacon of light in what can be a long dark slog to make a project perfect. Her professionalism and eye for detail are second to none, yet she also gave the project compassion, enthusiasm, and intelligence that took the project to a whole new level.
Jamie Evans, private project
When you're in "create mode," you become so close (and attached) to the content; having Christine run her fine-tooth comb of an editorial eye over my manuscript was so valuable to find things I couldn't - especially because she did so in such an exacting and kind, supportive manner. She brings such a valuable skill set to the publishing process.
Leisse Wilcox, To Call Myself Beloved
Thank you for all your hard work in making my book a masterpiece it is now.

Thank you, Christine. You did a lot of work, and I'm satisfied. I am thrilled by the changes, and I hope to learn from them. I am impressed by Christine's skill at finding errors and fixing them. She has eyes like no other. She's awesome.

Christine is a pleasure to work with. I've worked on three projects with her so far and each time she's delivered on schedule or sooner. She's incredibly professional and pays excellent attention to detail. I feel very confident trusting her for the final stage of editing.
