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.

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.

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.

Katerina Janik: Czech Book of Records

Susan had the tough task of editing my translation of a Czech Book of Records which we were getting ready for publication in 2014, and I am so grateful for her work. She was meticulous and detailed, making me blush many times by immediately spotting mistakes I went over several times before without seeing them. We were on quite a tight schedule and thanks to her flexibility, professionalism, and a wonderful can-do attitude, we were ready even sooner than we thought. Sorry, Susan, for the belated yet so well-deserved recommendation, I realize, as I did so often when looking over your corrections, that this is a mistake I did that you wouldn't do. :-)

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.

Jeff Dickinson: So There We Were: River Running in the Hudson Gorge

As someone new to book writing I am very grateful for the editing job from Susan and Adirondack Editing. I found the work helpful on both a professional and personal basis with clear directions and encouraging words.

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.

Lynne Fitzhugh: Mikak

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.
