Where do I start with Sarah? There are so many great things. First, as a person Sarah is fantastic and so kind and gentle with our beloved book babies. It's so hard and scary giving our projects over to someone to edit, but Sarah not only was kind about all her critiques, she really went above and beyond my expectations. I always felt my book was safe in her hands. I always got my questions answered promptly and never felt I was waiting around for an answer. Second, the edit itself was so detailed, so thorough, and so beyond my expectations. I was really blown away.
Sarah did a copyedit and proofread on my manuscript, and went through it so many times, finding all my goofy mistakes and correcting everything, so it was all uniform and so very professional. I'm still blown away by her attention to detail, something I seriously strive for. I was also given a Style Sheet, and that document itself was amazing, too. It had every single character, all the magical and fantasy elements of my book, a scene by scene breakdown--it was just incredible. A document like that is so invaluable, especially for an author like myself who's doing a series. I would recommend Sarah 10 times over again, and had such a wonderful experience working with her and will be working with her again in the future. I'm so glad i found her when I did!

Sarah was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. It was nerve-wrecking sharing my first project with someone, but Sarah was enthusiastic about it the whole time. She made me feel like she really believed in the story. Her editing was worth far more than she charges. By the end of her process, she knew my story better than I did. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

"She [Sarah] was amazing! She did everything she said she would and more. She was on time or early with her work. She kept me updated on the steps of the process, she communicated well and listened to my thoughts and ideas. She was super understanding and helped address any concerns or worries I had. I will 100% be using her services again. I can't recommend her high enough. I am so thrilled by the work we did together."

Genre: Dark Fantasy with some Spicy Romance
"Sarah is by far the friendliest person I have ever met! Her attention to detail is out of this world. Not only does she value the author's voice, she helps aid your development in keeping that voice throughout your story. What I love is that she is so easy to talk to. If I am nervous about handing over a manuscript, she puts those fears to bed. If I have questions, she gets back to me quickly. The communication, weekly updates, makes me feel included in this process. I can't wait to get my Friday updates!!!

"Sarah was great to work with. Her edits were thoughtful and always carefully explained. She has a gentle way of making suggestions that made it feel like we were a team working together to polish this manuscript to the best it could be. She went the extra mile to help me get this book ready in time for my publication date. Sarah also left little comments about things she liked, which were such a joy to find. I highly recommend her!"

Genre: New Adult Alternative Historical Mystery with a side of Steamy Romance
"I loved working with Sarah!!! So much that I want her to edit the entire series I’m writing once I actually finish it. Her edits illustrated her knowledge as well as her ability to enhance my writing style. I really felt that all her suggestions and questions made my manuscript better and kept to my voice. This is my debut novel. And I had no idea what to expect. Sarah went above and beyond my expectations. I have a style guide that is going to help me write the three other books in the series. A timeline for the first book that I was sadly missing. This entire process was great and made me more confident in what I was doing. Who knew that could happen when it’s someone’s job to help you find what’s wrong with your writing."

Handing over your writing is both terrifying and exciting all at once. It has been such a godsend working with Sarah. She is wonderfully diplomatic about errors (we all make them ... thst's why we need editors) and really manages to find the gems in the midst. She made the process so painless and I'm thrilled with the results.
