Sarah Herman is an extremely competent editor with a highly professional approach and creative flair. She’s resourceful and dependable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Lucy York, Qu:id Publishing

I find Sarah to be incredibly efficient, with amazing attention to detail, and consistent in her delivery.

Sarah-Lee Palmer-Hogan, The Ingénue magazine

Sarah always does excellent work and finishes within our publishing deadlines, even when the window is very tight. As an online magazine we take submissions from international authors and the regional variations are no hurdle for Sarah.

David Jones, Kraxon Publishing

Having worked with Sarah across multiple projects and mediums, she’s now my go-to person for proofreading and a great writer too.
