Jim Proebstle: Unintended Impact: One Athlete's Journey from Concussions in Amateur Football to CTE Dementia

Susan's support as an editor for my new book provided a rare balance of knowledge and expertise without intruding on my writing style.

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.

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.

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.

Samantha Peterson: Dynam

Susan is an incredibly detail-oriented and personable editor. I hired her for the first time a few weeks ago, and was impressed with the responsiveness, professionalism, and expeditiousness with which she worked through my manuscript. I will use Susan again in the future, and cannot recommend her highly enough!

Philip Williams: The Plight of Higher Education in the United States

I used Adirondack Editing services for three of my nonfiction books on the subject of higher education. In each case, the services I received were outstanding: intelligent, on time, and sensitive to my particular needs and requests.

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.
