What Clients Say


April supplied the final proofreading for all three books in my trilogy. Not only did she help strengthen the tone of my work, but found all of those persistent typos that had stay around through many other rounds of edits. With as much worldbuilding as is present in my work, she asked me all the right questions about capitalization, contractions, and word combinations. She has an ear for the sound of words, that made my project audiobook ready. She’s the type editor that tempts me to just “accept all changes” and move forward. :) A pleasure to work with.


Excellent, I worked with April and she was exceptionally helpful in editing my work. She truly understood the essense of the work, while staying true to my style. I highly recommend her.
