"I was fortunate to have met Nancy at a Writer's Seminar earlier this year, just when I was ready for an editor for my just-completed novel. I agreed to her terms and was extremely satisfied with her work- timely, professional, creative, and she was always there to answer my questions, help when I needed it, and all in her friendly mannerism. Nancy will be my editor for my next book for sure."

"Great job on content editing and done so quickly. I appreciate you!"
Thank you for doing a superb job on my manuscript! You took a bloated and somewhat disjointed story and polished it into a fine finished work.
As a new writer, I particularly appreciated your willingness to guide, teach and share your craft with me. Your level of service to your clients is a rarity today. I was amazed at the amount of time and effort you put into the editing to make the manuscript a first class product. You also have a very positive attitude and great patience – marks of a true professional. Anyone who has the good fortune of hiring you will discover how committed you are to your clients.
You have my unqualified endorsement – you'd be a perfect fit for anyone in need of a top-notch content editor – experienced or novice. I wish you many more years of success, and I look forward to working with you on my next project.
