Book Editor Reviews

"I’m very happy I came across this network online. I’m very happy with the editor that I chose. Everything was very professional." - Selin Merciyan

"Angelle, you need to know that as an editor, you're a writer's dream…your insight makes writing a joy." - Jonathan Friesen, author of Jerk, California and RUSH (excerpted from acknowledgments)

"Deep, heartfelt thanks to my editor, Angelle, whose guidance and wisdom I value beyond power of speech." - Linda Gerber, author of the Death by Bikini Mysteries, Trance, the Lights, Camera, Cassidy series, S.A.S.S.: Now and Zen and S.A.S.S.: The Finnish Line (excerpted from acknowledgments)

"Thank you…to Angelle who took a huge chance on a princess who should not be a princess and a writer who has never been very good at staying inside the box." - Anne Osterlund, author of Aurelia and Academy 7 (excerpted from acknowledgments)

"I wasn’t sure what to expect, as this was my first attempt writing a novel. Not only did Angelle deliver a detailed edit of my manuscript, but also she went above and beyond through sharing her wisdom and advice. I couldn’t recommend using book-editing.com more!" Amanda Kennedy

"Thank you Angelle, you’ve given me an honest and in-depth evaluation with the kind of detail and specificity I didn’t expect. You easily identified the weaknesses in my story and showed me how to fix them, at the same time emphasize the strengths. You have an eye of an eagle, and an impeccable editorial work." Patricia Vanasse

"Angelle is a wonderfully talented editor. She is very insightful, and quick to remedy any place in the manuscript where the story line is not working. She is positive with the work you submit, yet committed to improving it. Her suggestions and revisions make the original manuscript so much better. If I ever need another manuscript edited, I would most definitely use her, and only her." Karen Garcia
