Antonella Lo Re: Seven Steps to Joy: A Journey to Reconnect with Our Spiritual Thread

Susan has been a fantastic editor. She respectfully edited my work always making sure of never altering my message. She worked with me in a timely manner, respecting timeline we previously agreed upon. I am looking forward to working with Susan again!

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.

Nancy Henderson: Litter Boxes and Hairballs: My Life with Cats

Ms. Uttendorfsky's editing was above and beyond. I wish all editors were like her. Professional, encouraging, and a skilled eye. She made my book a better book, hands down.

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. :-)

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.

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.

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.

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!
