"It was a great pleasure working with Andrew on my first novel. He listened carefully to my vision of the book and asked a lot of questions before the editing started. The agreed deadlines were met at every stage. The editing itself was extremely detailed. Several typos were found (even thought the book had been checked hundreds of times) and many grammatical errors were fixed. Dozens of adverbs died in the process. Perhaps the best part was the amount of great advice that Andrew shared during the process: reference books, writing tips, editing and structuring methods, indie publishing strategies. Andrew has been through the writing, editing and publishing process himself and was a huge help to someone starting off on the journey. I highly recommend him for any editing work."
Leonora Meriel. Author, The Woman Behind the Waterfall
"As a first-time novelist, I was apprehensive about the editing process. But early in our first chat on Skype, Andrew put me at ease. He seemed to 'get it', regarding what I was trying to achieve, and his approach, using Skype sessions and informal email contacts, was very effective. He explained his suggested changes in a constructive and friendly way. I enjoyed the experience of working with Andrew and look forward to doing so again."
Andy Emery. Author, Blood Tribute
"It was fantastic working with Andrew. Not only is he a consummate professional and polished every aspect of the prose, he also offered great suggestions for word replacement and plot consistency. He kept in regular contact over Skype and email, and gave me plenty of opportunity to discuss changes and style points. (Editors I’ve worked with in the past have simply handed over their version at the end of the process without much discussion.) Andrew even edited my blurb and front matter for me. I feel my book is a better product for having worked with him."
Ben Galley. Author, Bloodfeud
"After working on my debut novel for seven years, I was anxious that I wouldn't find an editor who could meet my standards. Andrew immediately proved my fears were misplaced. He really connected with the story in a way that gave me confidence in his abilities. But the real magic was in his skill at sharpening the edge of the text to help it cut like a razor. If you're looking for an approachable editor who will work closely with you to preserve and strengthen your writer's voice, then look no further — I certainly won't have to for my next book."
MF Sullivan. Author, Delilah, My Woman
"I really enjoyed Andrew’s collaborative style. He helped me to see what I was doing right as well as focus on what I wasn’t. It’s clear that he loves editing, and his enthusiasm has reignited my own passion for learning my craft."
Eliza Green. Author, The Exilon 5 trilogy
"Success in any project depends on the team you assemble and I knew without a doubt, within seconds of talking to Andrew that we would work well together. Andrew's notes were concise and to the point, which made my job as a writer so much easier and my finished product so much better. I highly recommend him as an editor and I will be using him again for my next book."
Steve Abbott. Author, Reliance
"Andrew was an absolute pleasure to work with. He went the extra mile to ensure that I was happy with changes and that my writing retained the right voice. Our regular Skype chats, as well as updates of the manuscript as he progressed, made it a truly collaborative project. Having chatted to Andrew before we began, I felt so comfortable trusting him with my writing. He was passionate about the story and the characters and I knew he'd work hard to make them shine. I'm so happy that I chose to work with Andrew on this project and I'm eager to hire him for my next."
