Meticulous copy editing/proofing, quick turn around, and enthusiasm for the job are words that describe Susan's work for me. She provided 'fresh eyes' with 20-20-vision. I will use Susan's services again.

Susan has edited my second children's picture book and I am pleased with the way she edited my story. Susan not only corrected grammar, spotted hidden errors and rectified wrong spellings, she also wrote some useful ideas to my story and made it more interesting to read. Susan also wrote a report on my writing level. Her report taught me other ways to write better and tell the reader why people do what they do. I studied Susan's report on writing children's picture books and I am applying them to other books I am currently writing. I highly recommend Susan to edit anyone's writing. So, will I be using Susan's service in the future? Yes, I will. She took excellent care of my work and she will take care of yours.

The level of attention, detail, and insight that Susan provides across all levels of a manuscript is not only reassuring, but inspiring. If you take the time to carefully evaluate her comments/fixes, then you’re getting more than just a markup or edit. It’s like paying for a writing course with the added benefit of completing your manuscript. Whatever tier you decide to pursue, her professionalism is unparalleled and amazing value. I’ll be using Susan again for my next manuscript, without question.

Recently Susan, of Adirondack Editing, helped shape two of my novels from completed drafts to presentable finished products. Her attention to detail is exceptional. Again and again, many minor inconsistencies were noted in the hundreds of pages of text. These are the small things that often catch a writer out and can irritate the reader. Susan communicates in a clear and precise fashion. Not once did I have to contact her for clarification of a suggested change, and that is really something considering I reside in Australia and she is based in the United States!
Susan is a master of grammar and it shows. To have a manuscript adjusted to industry standards gives a sense of confidence.
I fully intend to use Susan's services again for my current, and future, novels.
I strongly recommend Adirondack Editing for anyone with a manuscript they desire to take to the next level.

I would highly recommend Susan, especially for the newer writers that are seeking guidance from a professional editor. My entire book was completed much faster than expected and the edits that were suggested were well outlined and explained. She provided a wealth of helpful insight and included a thorough summary of the entire book. I will definitely be using Adirondack Editing on future projects.
