Peter Pollak: In the Game

I hired Susan to edit my 170-page fiction manuscript. She not only got it done sooner than promised, but did so with a thoroughness and skill that was well worth the price. In addition to the marked up manuscript, she provided me a copy of her editing marks, a reference guide and an indexing of names and terms that saved me from multiple mistakes. Working with her was easy, communications prompt and responsive. I can't recommend her more highly for people who want their fiction or non-fiction manuscripts to be as free of mistakes as possible.

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!

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. :-)

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.

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!

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.
