Christine Jernigan, Ph.D: Bilingual Parenting: Learn Another Language, Teach it to Your Child

I found Susan Uttendorfsky's edits clear and insightful. I had no trouble taking her comments and improving my work with them. She was also very quick to get back to me when I had questions. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.

Lisa Fender: Fable—Book 1 of the Lorn Prophecy

Susan edited my fantasy fiction novel and was very supportive. Not only were her edits spot on, she put extreme enthusiasm into the book. Her wonderful comments and understanding the book’s layout put her above others! I also have a made up language, so not only did she edit the book, she edited the new language, including the list of the words, their meanings, and the plurals. I will recommend her to all my writer friends!

Update: Susan just edited our second book and did a fabulous job! Again, she was thorough and on time. She left wonderful and funny comments, which help when you're going through the painful process, and she is dedicated and trustworthy. Not to mention, affordable! We will absolutely be using Susan again for our next book! She is part of our team now!

Israel Vicente: Divergent Lives

I recommend Susan at Adirondack Editing for detailed and helpful editing for any manuscript. Susan worked on one of my books, Divergent Lives, and did an excellent job in giving my manuscript a most professional review and recommending enhancements that I was very pleased with. I look forward to working with her again on a future project.

Regina N.: A Jar of Broken Hearts

It's a pleasure to recommend Susan Uttendorfsky of Adirondack Editing. Susan offered detailed professional developmental editing services for my adult fiction story, A Jar of Broken Hearts.

Not only did she show great mastery of the editing process, she also provided a lot of positive critiquing. "In my project, her advice has been invaluable in terms of character development, editing, chapter development, formatting, ensuring consistent flow in the writing, and spell checking.

Susan is a very diligent, meticulous, and thorough copy editor. She also takes the time to suggest multitude of other resources (books, articles and discussion forums) for writers to enhance their skills and understanding of the writing world. I'm looking [forward] to working with Susan on future projects.

Pieter D. Gaskin: Adirondack Luau

My name is Pieter David Gaskin. I am the author of the soon to be released "Adirondack Luau". This will be my first self-published children's book. I would like to take a moment and write about my experience with Adirondack Editing.

First of all it has been an extremely positive experience. Susan has exceeded my expectations as an editor.

When I first set out to write the book, I never imagined what a team effort it would be. It was quite a surprise to see the punctuation errors that Adirondack Editing caught even after it had been edited by my wife who is also an author. A fresh set of eyes is a must for anyone wishing to publish or self-publish. It is impossible to be completely objective with your own creation.

Susan also did a wonderful job fixing some sentence structure issues I had. She also suggested some areas to cut from my manuscript that maximized the flow of my story.

If you want professional editing services with a personal touch, Adirondack Editing is the way to go. Susan offers a valuable service which I never expected to find locally.

Barry Freeman: A Tale of Two Lawyers

Susan is a competent and thorough editor. She has an in-depth knowledge in the areas critical to good editing and adds a sense of humor to the process. She has inspired me to reeducate myself in the basics of good writing, which her editing revealed as painfully lacking.

Walter Danley: The Tipping Point

Susan is the owner of Adirondack Editing and you won't find her lounging in one out on the front deck! She is a dedicated knowledge worker with the desire to please her editing clients.

I have found Susan's work to be superlative in quality at reasonable rates. You can pay more with someone else, but you won't get any more for your editing dollar than what Susan so readily provides.

Having Susan and Adirondack Editing on your team makes for professional product output, every time.
