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.

Noel Jones: Hearing the Word of God

Susan has edited my second children's picture book and I am pleased with the way she edited my story. Susan not only corrected grammar, spotted hidden errors and rectified wrong spellings, she also wrote some useful ideas to my story and made it more interesting to read. Susan also wrote a report on my writing level. Her report taught me other ways to write better and tell the reader why people do what they do. I studied Susan's report on writing children's picture books and I am applying them to other books I am currently writing. I highly recommend Susan to edit anyone's writing. So, will I be using Susan's service in the future? Yes, I will. She took excellent care of my work and she will take care of yours.

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.

Dale Musser: Solbidyum Wars Saga Book 3—Pirates of the Goo’Waddle Canals

I contacted Susan to edit book three in the SOLBIDYUM WARS SAGA when my previous editor was unable to get to the book in a timely fashion due to prior commitments. I liked the choice of editing packages she had to offer and I was pleased with her willingness to work with me regarding specific editing requirements. Susan was easy to work with, she kept me informed of her progress and she worked within the timetable we had discussed. I was pleased with the edited manuscript she provided me and I will not hesitate to use her again if a similar editing situation arises.

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!

Kameron Bryant-Sergejev: I Never Went to School

I had just completed the first draft of my memoir when I ran into Susan on the LI group Aspiring Authors. As a first-time author, I wanted to go through the process of editing my manuscript with someone who acted as a mentor and teacher, so I could learn as much as possible. Susan offers Tier 4, which starts with a manuscript evaluation and developmental edit and ends with a thorough copyedit and proofread. After I saw Susan’s sample edit, I knew I was in the right place. She didn’t let anything slip by, but she wasn’t brutal in her comments.

Now, having completed the edits and mentorship under Susan’s accurate eyes, I can actually be confident in presenting my book to literary agents and publishers. For the money I spent, I got a solid manuscript and a better understanding of what I need to work on as a writer—not to mention all the tiny grammatical details to watch out for. At all times Susan was very professional, while remaining completely approachable. I’m sure I’ll be a repeat client!

Elke Feuer: Jumpstart Your Writing Routine

I’ve worked with Susan on multiple projects both large and small, ranging from workbooks to eBooks. She’s always professional and extremely thorough with her advice.

I always recommend her to the writers in my writing group, and on my business website as a must use editor.

Every writer I’ve recommended her to have raved about her and the services she provides. If you need an editor, Susan is the best choice.
