Massimo Marino: The Rise of the Phoenix

I hired Susan to care for the copy editing of my last novel ‘The Rise of the Phoenix’ - Vol. 3 of the ‘Daimones Trilogy’.

I appreciated the punctual suggestions from Susan, and her attention to details — Susan provides her writers with additional material than just the editing corrections — that reflects in the quality of her work.

I collaborate with beta-readers and proofreading and line editing phases take place before working with the editor so this last pass needs to be the shining and finishing refinements that can come only from an expert in the subject. I was pleasantly surprised by her accuracy and her strict time management that allow her to finish her tasks even before the agreed deadline.

Susan is not the first editor I worked with and I will hire her for my next novel without a second thought.

Jo Ann Plante: Everyone Evelon

Susan did an excellent job of editing my manuscript. She is professional and exceptionally thorough in her work. She added her thoughts and put comments next to some of the content giving me additional suggestions. She went beyond my expectations by asking me to contact her with any questions or comments after she completed her editing. When I did contact her, she was helpful and quick to respond. I will definitely use her for my next writing project.

Elizabeth C. Haynes: Offbeat Yoga

Susan is an amazingly talented editor and I cannot recommend her enough! She really knows what works and what doesn’t when it comes to books. Her developmental editing is spot on and really helpful—eye opening, really. She is also an extremely thorough copyeditor and really knows her stuff. And beyond all that, she’s just a really lovely person! She is compassionate, kind, and communicative, and all in all someone I would highly recommend others do business with. I’m glad to have found her!

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.

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.

Helen Yeomans: A Knock at the Door

Susan could not have been more helpful in the editing of my children's story, A Knock at the Door. As a former editor myself, I greatly appreciated her careful attention to detail, and her explanations (where needed) of changes or recommendations. I have no hesitation in recommending her work.

Gayle Smith: The Walk of Faith

Susan Uttendorfsky is a phenomenal editor! Any editor corrects grammar, sentence structure and all of the mechanical details related to writing. Susan enables the author to actually develop their ideas for writing. My experience with Susan as I completed my Faith Forward series with her was extraordinary. She challenged me to dig deeper into the context of my writing. She even disputed points by giving me sound objectives and logic to help me come to my own conclusions. Her expertise in research and for writing trends continually shaped the best presentation of my writing for publication.  

I’ve come to rely on her expertise as an editor during the long-term work on my first two books, Faith Forward: Wellness Tools for Creating Change—A Women’s Three-Point Harmony of Body, Mind, and Spirit and Faith Forward: The Workbook—Creating Change Through Body, Mind, and Spirit Connections With Education, Inspiration, and Organization, as well as Faith Forward: The Planner and subsequent miscellaneous materials. So I again chose Susan to work on my new publication, “The Walk of Faith—Triumph in Troubled Times.” Her excellent customer service is worth it, and she also did the formatting this time. Working with Susan is a win-win!
