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.

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.
