What my customers say

I’ve worked with a number of editors over the course of my writing career, at least one of whom boasted an impressive roster of former clients. But deep down I was searching for an editor who was quick, thorough and who “got” the stories I was trying to tell. That search ended when I found RJ. She’s everything I was looking for and so much more. I’ve always been thrilled with her work. I know you will be too.

I had no idea what I was doing when I wrote my first novel, but I’d heard good things about RJ so I trusted her to fix my poor grammar and punctuation and bring my attention to the content issues that needed to be fixed within the story. Four novels in, I cannot imagine doing this with anyone else and I hope I never have to. I trust RJ to meet deadlines and provide quick turnarounds when needed and she never lets me down.
