What my clients say about me (unsolicited!)


I've just passed the material on for typesetting – which didn't take me long. You've done a super job, really thorough, so thank you.

Military history publisher, 2007


I'm very grateful for the thorough and speedy job you did and wanted to say it was very helpful that you kept in touch throughout the process so I knew how it was going and could answer any questions you had.

Thames & Hudson editor, 2011


Thank you very much for all the work you have done on this and for the additional documents. You always do such a thorough job, so much so we are all fighting to send you things!

Pearson Vocational editor, 2011


It is an exemplary job and we are very pleased with it – [the author] is extremely impressed. Thank you very much for turning it round quickly and all your helpful suggestions and documentation.

Birlinn editor, 2012


I am currently going through your changes and can't thank you enough for being so thorough. Also, thank you for making the changes so clear to follow. I really appreciate it.

Susan, I really wanted to tell you just how impressed I was with your proofread – absolutely first-rate! … I have pretty high standards and expectations, but you not only matched but exceeded them! [My colleague] and I are now fighting (in the nicest possible way, of course!) over who gets to book you in next! … You are an editorial star!

Hodder Gibson editor, 2016
