Karen Aminadra: Lettie Jenkins Investigates; Charlotte, Rosings, and Wickham, all of the Pride and Prejudice Continues series
I hired Susan for the first time at short notice and she did a superb job. Despite it being a rush job, she gave my manuscript her full attention and got back to me faster than I could ever have expected. I especially love the personal touch that Susan gives. I felt that not only was she my editor and gave me all the valuable advice needed, but that she did so as a friend.
Her comments and suggestions were in-keeping with the period of the book and her keen eye spotted anything modern that had crept past my notice. I personally enjoyed the experience of working with Susan so much that I am looking forward to using her expertise in the future.
We keep in touch regularly and I would never take any of my books to anyone else now. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a highly skilled editor.

Ms. Uttendorfsky's editing was above and beyond. I wish all editors were like her. Professional, encouraging, and a skilled eye. She made my book a better book, hands down.

I chose Susan as my editor because for a year I read her blogs giving advice to writers, and found them more helpful than anything else I read. When I initially contacted her, she made it obvious that she was ready and eager to meet my exact needs.
The editing service she subsequently provided was prompt, thorough, and within my budget. I have found working with Susan to be an enjoyable experience above and beyond my expectations.

I recommend Susan at Adirondack Editing for detailed and helpful editing for any manuscript. Susan worked on one of my books, Divergent Lives, and did an excellent job in giving my manuscript a most professional review and recommending enhancements that I was very pleased with. I look forward to working with her again on a future project.

I hired Susan to edit my 170-page fiction manuscript. She not only got it done sooner than promised, but did so with a thoroughness and skill that was well worth the price. In addition to the marked up manuscript, she provided me a copy of her editing marks, a reference guide and an indexing of names and terms that saved me from multiple mistakes. Working with her was easy, communications prompt and responsive. I can't recommend her more highly for people who want their fiction or non-fiction manuscripts to be as free of mistakes as possible.

Susan edited my fantasy fiction novel and was very supportive. Not only were her edits spot on, she put extreme enthusiasm into the book. Her wonderful comments and understanding the book’s layout put her above others! I also have a made up language, so not only did she edit the book, she edited the new language, including the list of the words, their meanings, and the plurals. I will recommend her to all my writer friends!
Update: Susan just edited our second book and did a fabulous job! Again, she was thorough and on time. She left wonderful and funny comments, which help when you're going through the painful process, and she is dedicated and trustworthy. Not to mention, affordable! We will absolutely be using Susan again for our next book! She is part of our team now!
