"Holly was FANTASTIC. She was SO thorough and submitted everything back to me earlier than I needed it! Even after she was done with the edit, I had some questions, and she was very speedy in her responses. I appreciate that she took time to answer my questions. She really went above and beyond! My paper not only needed to follow APA guidelines, but my university had guidelines as well. She did both perfectly."

"The network's prompt response detailing potential editors allowed our text to be in the hands of an editing professional in no time. The knowledge, professionalism, and editing service offered by Nancy greatly enhanced the content and flow of the textbook. Additionally, Nancy provided comments and insight that went well beyond the service paid, and returned the ~44,000 word textbook within weeks. I highly recommend the network and Nancy."
"I couldn’t have dreamt of receiving the thoroughness of editing, knowledge, and follow through that was provided by Nancy. She caught an error in my reference list that I would never have found. I don’t know how she did it! I am so pleased!"
"Seriously, you saved my life. English is my second language. I was desperate looking at all the words I had to put together so that it would flow nicely using APA style. This was an immense mountain to climb. I decided to search the web to see if I could find help. I did not know about your network but I figured I would search for APA Editor and there you were. I also thought it would be too late since there was only 5 days before my paper was due. I sent the email anyway out of desperation....and ding! I got a response right away. I could’t believe it and was afraid it was a scam. But I had nothing to lose.
Nancy took by messy words and made a wonderful essay with it. She rearranged the headlines, wrapped it all up in APA, check my reference list to make sure I had quoted everyone. I received an amazing final product. I now can carry on working full-time doing a Master knowing that there is someone who can help me at the most difficult times...editing. My husband also wants to thank you since I was so much easier to live with once I found you! Ha!
Thank you so much!
