I decided on engaging FirstEditing to help edit my work for epublishing because they are patient and answered all my queries satisfactorily. I also like their free sample editing which enables me to assess their work before committing. Editing corrected common errors and ensure that the final piece of writing is suitable for publishing. I would like to thank FirstEditing for helping me to publish my work.

I requested Lee Ann because I loved the way she worked on my previous books. I was not disappointed. I really loved working with her on this book and look forward to sending my next book to her. This book so be ready to publish in a few weeks.

My editor, Lee Ann, who worked with me was extremely professional, in-depth, always on time with the suggested corrections, and gave great feedback. Whether that feedback came through a knowledgeable critique or a witty light-hearted joke/pun, that feedback definitely gave me much needed confidence. -I acquired the services of FirstEditing simply out of curiosity, to test and determine how good the service really is. What I discovered was an editing source that I can go back to without question. FirstEditing should be on the top of your list if you want a reliable, friendly, proficient editing source. -Grammar has always been a pretty challenging factor for me, as I'm sure many others, while writing. Especially, when a story runs through your head like a freight train it's hard to keep up with those little grammatical details. FirstEditing cleans that up in a timely manner with respect to the story. -As an independent author FirstEditing has helped me tenfold in terms of me sharing my writing artistry and taking myself seriously as a budding contemporary author and poet. Also, I can't say it enough, this process has given me much needed confidence to venture out into this industry, which can be very subjective and harsh at times as I'm sure you know.

After I saw the quality and time taken in my free sample editing, I did not hesitate to have FirstEditing edit my whole book. The quality of editing and comments from my editor, Christine, were just what my book needed. I couldn't be more satisfied!

Laura, Escondido, United States of America

I received my finished, edited manuscript a day earlier than scheduled and I'm extremely pleased. I am a newbie self-publishing author, and this is a non-fiction 385 page book about alternative medicine, energy-work and self-healing. I spent fifteen years compiling notes and creating this manuscript with some one hundred-twenty revisions. I was a bit apprehensive to say the least about letting it go for copy-editing. Every staff member I encountered along the way was very prompt to respond and answer my questions, very helpful, and a joy to work with. Having Jefferson as my copy-editor for this project was a dream come true for me. Not only does he have an interest and understanding of my genre, (healing arts and energy work) but he also had a genuine interest in making sure my message was clear, concise and proper. The transformation that my manuscript went through by the wordsmithing of a true craftsman absolutely left me spellbound. I could not believe how beautifully the words flowed and the main focus was only emphasized all the more. I hired FirstEditing because their price and turnaround time seemed very reasonable. But really, I was sold on the free sample edit. It was the forward to my book, and they did a fantastic job on it! The editing that was done gave me a whole new perspective on my message in the book. As an author, you loose sight of how important your work is, simply because you have looked at it daily for months to years. Reading my manuscript after the copy-editing opened my eyes to my own message as if I had never heard those words before. This was a revelation and an ah-ha moment for me. I realized by the end of the read that my work was reflective of my passion and vision. Cathryn, (my contributing author for my first book) and I have at present 5 more books in the wings to be written. FirstEditing, and namely Jefferson, will be on top of my list of contacts when they come around this spring and summer. I think so much of Jefferson's work that I felt moved to include him in the acknowledgements of this book. Thank you all so much. I never thought that I could be overjoyed at having 10,044 edits to look review and accept. By the way, this was all done in one shot. There was nothing to reject, change or add to. Job Well Done! Tony Damian

I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you have done editing and commenting on my work. Elise has done a fantastic job reading and feeling the text, commenting, making the writer see and think of certain angles one hasn't thought or seen before. Since this was not just a linguistic editing, the added value of having another pair of eyes, expert eyes, read the text with you, is very clear. Whether these texts get published, or are added to the millions of dreams and attempts to get published, is really irrelevant here. For me, personally, the greatest value I have received from this editing is that I got back a constructive feedback about what works well in my style of writing and how to make it better. The comments were informative, intelligent, and not too directing in that they did not interfere with the writer's own style, or got into the private space. I respect the fact the the editor respects the writer's intelligence, and lets him decide how to clarify a certain point. This is all I have for now. I am happy I had the opportunity to send this to you, and have it go through one round of editing. I am happy and satisfied with your work, and I would surely recommend you to colleagues and friends. Thank you again, Elise, for a wonderful job.
