Susan Uttendorfsky-- May she never lack for praise or chocolate! She is thorough and also tremendously generous with her time. She is more a mentor to authors than a mere editor.

Susan is an incredibly detail-oriented and personable editor.

Jesse Rebock: Freelance Copyeditor

Susan has become a respectable friend and a trusted mentor. She works at 110% capacity on even the most trivial of requests, and has proven reliable, punctual, and exceedingly helpful. A writer should consider themselves lucky to do business with her, and anyone within her circles should be grateful to know her.

Kameron Bryant-Sergejev: I Never Went to School

I had just completed the first draft of my memoir when I ran into Susan on the LI group Aspiring Authors. As a first-time author, I wanted to go through the process of editing my manuscript with someone who acted as a mentor and teacher, so I could learn as much as possible. Susan offers Tier 4, which starts with a manuscript evaluation and developmental edit and ends with a thorough copyedit and proofread. After I saw Susan’s sample edit, I knew I was in the right place. She didn’t let anything slip by, but she wasn’t brutal in her comments.

Now, having completed the edits and mentorship under Susan’s accurate eyes, I can actually be confident in presenting my book to literary agents and publishers. For the money I spent, I got a solid manuscript and a better understanding of what I need to work on as a writer—not to mention all the tiny grammatical details to watch out for. At all times Susan was very professional, while remaining completely approachable. I’m sure I’ll be a repeat client!
