My debut novel Fox Halt Farm has been a massive undertaking for me. I haven’t written for years and when the characters and ideas came into my head early this year, I was determined I had to write my novel. I have invested hundred of hours in it whilst trying to work full time, and it has been a massive mental and financial outlay. Amanda has been the best thing to happen to me on this journey. She has answered every one of my communications promptly and in full (so unusual today where everyone is inundated with emails and may not reply, or half read a question and provide half a response). She has been professional and kind in all her comments about my writing. Amanda opened my eyes to so many things that were wrong with my original manuscript. She confirmed my doubts about the parts I wasn’t sure of and provided appropriate and well thought out solutions. She has been there in every moment of my self doubt. I was kept informed about how she was progressing. And even with the massive amount of rewriting, she has stuck to the very fair price she originally quoted for editing. I feel like I have been on a creative writing course ( not a day long one either - I mean an eight week course!) All the tips and advice she gave me about writing were so useful and spot on. So would I recommend Amanda? - Yes - I think you will struggle to find anyone better! Thank you Amanda you are a shining star.
Amanda provides a thoughtful, sensitive and exacting edit. She made excellent suggestions and picked out the smallest errors, that would have otherwise slipped through unnoticed. I heartily recommend to everyone who publishes their work.
Amanda is one heck of an editor! Not only is she very competent in the editing process but she has fantastic people skills. She's been very effective in dealing with authors of all personality types, ensuring that we're all aligned and that the quality of what we put it is top notch! She's great to work with!
Amanda rocks! She was able to take my manuscript of verbal vomit and help me clean it up into a concise and professional looking manuscript that has already earned a lot of positive feedback from publishers and reviewers. I highly recommend Amanda to any author looking for a high-quality editor!
Amanda was the editor on the book I published, Obstacles Equal Opportunity with 23 co-authors. Her interactions and effectiveness to work with each author were seamless. The editing was immaculate and professional. Her dedication to our project was amazing, therefore nothing fell through the cracks. Her attention to detail is bar none. Her communication style with the co-authors was open and relaxed and she kept me abreast of updates and changes. This project went flawlessly with Amanda on our team. I would working with Amanda if you looking for an editor. She is apart of my publishing team moving forward. -author, publisher, and coach Heather Andrews
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Amanda on my latest release titled UnSung Heroes: Deconstructing Suicide Through Stories of Triumph. She was not only highly professional and quick with her services; but created an edited version of my book that was outstanding. She is such a pleasure to work with! In addition, she took the time to market my book through her blog. This resulted in not only exposure but additional sales! There is no doubt in my mind that all of my future publications will be edited by Amanda!
I want to thank Amanda for the extraordinary benevolent influence that she has been in editing my novel. She is one of those rare people who sticks to their word and cost even though this book was quite an undertaking. Amanda took what was basically a mess of unexplained ideas and turned it into a smooth flowing novel. I rarely band words like ‘excellent’ around, but the experience could not have been better, please remember me when you are inundated with work because you are my editor now! Thanks for making my 34-year-old story relevant, so many people would have given up with such a workload, but that’s an indication of the true professional that you are.

Amanda is a true professional with editing. Her work ethics, communication and professionalism is the best. She is organized, and does a stunning job of editing while not changing the person's story! She is a great team player.
I’ve worked with a number of editors and have worked as one too so can spot a good editor. Amanda is a good editor. She got what I was trying to do and suggested a number of ways to improve the manuscript which made the story much tighter and better. You can’t really ask more from an editor really. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone with a novel to edit. She’ll take your lump of prose and polish it to diamond brilliance.
My publisher put me in touch with Amanda as I needed someone who would not only act as an editor but as a critical friend to take my writing to the next level. Her eye for detail is impressive and she tells it like it is, ensuring that the finished article is the best it can be. Always at the end of an email, Amanda gave advice on any sections or chapters I sent. I look forward to working with her again
Recently I was fortunate enough to be put in touch with Amanda relating to the editing of my latest book. I found Amanda to be a fantastic person to work with. She not only performed a thorough polish of my work but also picked out odd sections that were in need of finer crafting. What I particularly liked was how she offered alternative ways of telling the same story through minor rewrites or addition or deletion of certain text. Amanda is dedicated to obtaining the best outcome, and her clear and precise advice is what every writer can only wish for from an editor. I recommend her services without hesitation.
I have used five different editors in the past with varying degrees of success. In Amanda, I’ve found an editor who is in tune with my needs straight off. She provided a fresh pair of eyes on my story, and came back with some excellent suggestions which I’ve implemented. At this stage in the book’s development I’m working on getting the last 5% correct. It’s always difficult with finessing to know when and where to stop. Amanda’s has helped me reach the end point. In addition, her charges are very competitive, and her speed of turn-around is excellent. I’ve happy to recommend her, and will be using her for other titles in my Billy Growing Up series.
Amanda was great to work with - extremely professional, has a great eye for detail and her turn around time is astonishing. I'm confident that I can rely on her to polish my manuscripts, on time, and for a good price.
I hired Amanda to proof read a manuscript for my client who is an award winning Hollywood film director. Amanda was easy to work with, a great communicator and the who projected flowed with ease. I would definitely recommend working with Amanda and I will be hiring her proof read other jobs for me in the future.
