Bill Powell: A Girl Uploaded

While I had a good idea of what an appraisal of my MS might uncover, from some partial critiques (and which I did not share), Susan delivered an analysis that was more detailed than anything I'd seen, was consistent with my expectations, but also identified one or two more areas for work.

The final report was well laid out, so easy to understand, and made it easy for me to see what did (and what did not) need further work, both at the high level and at the individual line level.

After Susan's appraisal I believe my re-worked MS is now in good shape to go before an agent or an editor - and that represents money well spent.

Kimberly Shursen: Convictions

The most surprising element of working with Editor Susan Uttendorfsky is that she is a stickler for facts. I was pleasantly pleased when she would come back with correct spellings for products, and/or specific facts regarding the country or city that were used in my psychological thriller Lottery series.

In spite of the fact that Susan had not read the first two books of the series, she was able to quickly piece together the ‘back’ story with only brief overviews of the previous two novels.

Another aspect that I appreciated was when I questioned any type of grammar or punctuation, Susan would send a link as to why it was correct. This not only helped me understand, but educated me.

It was refreshing to find an editor who felt like a partner, rather than a hired employee who wanted to get the novel finished and move on to the next project.

I highly recommend Susan for your writing project, whether a novella or a full-blown novel. She has the insight and expertise, keeping detailed notes to find the slightest discrepancies such as timeline issues, or when a chapter seems misplaced in the script.

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.

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.

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.

Susan responded quickly to my inquiry, tailored her editing services to my needs, carefully evaluated a long and difficult manuscript, and produced several useful reports in a timely manner at what I consider a bargain rate. I recommend her highly.
