Yogesh Chabria

Susan has incredible skills and is great help! She is extremely professional and honest about what services she can offer. There were a few areas where she also recommended me to a few others. I will definitely be using her expertise when it comes to editing, and also will recommend her to anyone who needs their work edited.

Karen Aminadra: Lettie Jenkins Investigates; Charlotte, Rosings, and Wickham, all of the Pride and Prejudice Continues series

I hired Susan for the first time at short notice and she did a superb job. Despite it being a rush job, she gave my manuscript her full attention and got back to me faster than I could ever have expected. I especially love the personal touch that Susan gives. I felt that not only was she my editor and gave me all the valuable advice needed, but that she did so as a friend.

Her comments and suggestions were in-keeping with the period of the book and her keen eye spotted anything modern that had crept past my notice. I personally enjoyed the experience of working with Susan so much that I am looking forward to using her expertise in the future.

We keep in touch regularly and I would never take any of my books to anyone else now. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a highly skilled editor.

Mary Shepherd: The Adventures of Molly and Her Dollies

Susan worked very closely with me throughout my entire manuscript. She was very thorough and positive with critiquing. It has been a pleasure working with her. I will be working with her soon on my second book. I would highly recommend Susan. I met her in person at an author convention. I'm so glad we found each other.

Larry Laswell: Vows to the Fallen

Susan provided two services for me. First I submitted my manuscript to her for what she calls "Extraction." She has a fantastic tool that rates the writing based on word frequency, and it was an eye-opener. I have used what I learned to improve my craft. Also, the same tool found several spelling mistakes and inconsistencies in my manuscript that three editors had missed.

Next she provided an analysis of the manuscript based on a review of plot, theme development, and characterization. Her insights were right on the mark and were also eye-openers. I have used her feedback to sharpen the focus of my next novel, “Vows to the Fallen,” as well as improve my craft.

If you want to learn something about your manuscript and writing style—and things that no one else will find—contact Susan.
