Testimonials

Martin was a pleasure to work with and made the editing process very straightforward.  He has admirable attention to detail and was particularly helpful in ensuring accurate and consistent referencing throughout the text.

Jill Mccanney, Routledge author

Thank you Martin Murphy for your attention to detail in preparing my book for publication. I appreciate the time and effort you put in and what a great job you did.

Madhavi Narwana Parker, Routledge author

I am certainly impressed with how thorough and meticulous a job you have done, and I thank you for that.

Colin Corliss, Routledge author

I was particularly impressed by Martin's ability to scrutinise a somewhat sensitive appendix section in order to find any issues with legality or confidentiality.

Hayley Russell, Troubador Publishing

Again, we appreciate all the attention you have given our book. It is already better because of it.

Stephen Barnard, Routledge author
