Testimonials

Here are what some of my recent clients have said:

Nicole is a wonderful editor. Had I never hired her, I would still be pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to improve my manuscript. Her feedback was far beyond what I expected. She gave me much more than just an overall summary of my novel, she gave careful feedback throughout. Grammar, spelling, characters, pacing, plot, voice – anywhere my manuscript could use improvement, she showed me. All this was skillfully done in a way that did not replace or change my voice. I highly recommend her services.”

It’s really a breath of fresh air to work with someone who understands the inner workings of a novel: plot, structure, pacing, character development. I recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable, honest, and informed editor!”

“Nicole did a wonderful job of assisting me troubleshoot a novel with sequencing issues. I had been workshopping the book for months, but wasn’t sure how to fix it. Nicole read the novel in its entirety and gave me a bird’s eye view reader report, which was very helpful in pinpointing the areas that needed revision. Nicole identified the chapter that was out of place and gave me suggestions for how to better weave it into the story to improve the overall flow of the book. Upon revising, the entire story works so much better. She also had some great suggestions for how to improve characterizations and strengthen the plot. I was very pleased with Nicole’s editing suggestions, and would definitely recommend her services to anyone in need of them.”
