Neal G. Brownell: Just the Way You Are - You're Amazing and I'll Prove It

"My wife, Linda, and I can't even begin to measure the value that Susan Uttendorfsky (Adirondack Editing) has brought to my book: Just the Way You Are - You're Amazing and I'll Prove It! The guidance that she has given us in getting my message out in my own voice has been absolutely incredible. So if you want the very best editor and mentor, you will never get anyone better than Susan Uttendorfsky of Adirondack Editing.

Massimo Marino: The Rise of the Phoenix

I hired Susan to care for the copy editing of my last novel ‘The Rise of the Phoenix’ - Vol. 3 of the ‘Daimones Trilogy’.

I appreciated the punctual suggestions from Susan, and her attention to details — Susan provides her writers with additional material than just the editing corrections — that reflects in the quality of her work.

I collaborate with beta-readers and proofreading and line editing phases take place before working with the editor so this last pass needs to be the shining and finishing refinements that can come only from an expert in the subject. I was pleasantly surprised by her accuracy and her strict time management that allow her to finish her tasks even before the agreed deadline.

Susan is not the first editor I worked with and I will hire her for my next novel without a second thought.

Mary Shepherd: The Adventures of Molly and Her Dollies

Susan worked very closely with me throughout my entire manuscript. She was very thorough and positive with critiquing. It has been a pleasure working with her. I will be working with her soon on my second book. I would highly recommend Susan. I met her in person at an author convention. I'm so glad we found each other.

Kimberly Shursen: Convictions

The most surprising element of working with Editor Susan Uttendorfsky is that she is a stickler for facts. I was pleasantly pleased when she would come back with correct spellings for products, and/or specific facts regarding the country or city that were used in my psychological thriller Lottery series.

In spite of the fact that Susan had not read the first two books of the series, she was able to quickly piece together the ‘back’ story with only brief overviews of the previous two novels.

Another aspect that I appreciated was when I questioned any type of grammar or punctuation, Susan would send a link as to why it was correct. This not only helped me understand, but educated me.

It was refreshing to find an editor who felt like a partner, rather than a hired employee who wanted to get the novel finished and move on to the next project.

I highly recommend Susan for your writing project, whether a novella or a full-blown novel. She has the insight and expertise, keeping detailed notes to find the slightest discrepancies such as timeline issues, or when a chapter seems misplaced in the script.

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.

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.
