What people are saying
Carlene is not only a proficient, competent editor/proofreader, she offered invaluable insights into my manuscript. The editing suggestions were all taken on board. One in particular demonstrated not only an expertise in writing and editing, but also a wise head. I took note of this wise counsel and acted upon it.
Carlene is the kind of professional you dream about working with! She is very smart, very talented and very personable. She paid close attention to the specific needs of my project and then her work knocked it out of the park! I've hired her again and would recommend her to anyone looking for great results from a professional with information, intuition and integrity.
All I can say is WOW! Carlene took my vision for my book regarding bullying, victims, and bystanders to a whole new level. The research she did for my book was beyond what I could have asked for and making sure that everything flowed perfectly. She was warned up front that English was not my favorite subject and I could not be more pleased with her services and professionalism. I have and will continue to refer Carlene to anyone looking for an editor.
Carlene's editing skills helped polish the poetry chapbook I'm completing. She had great observations and also saved me from a few embarrassing mistakes. It helped me out having another person take a bird's eye view of the pieces for continuity, but also to be very detailed within each poem and notice so much. Her rates are extremely reasonable and I appreciated the quick turnaround time. I'm excited to work with her again with future projects and highly recommend.
Carlene did an AMAZING job editing my grad school dissertation. She was great at communicating while she was editing and being available if I needed clarification once she was finished. She was incredibly thorough and really enhanced the quality of the paper. I would highly recommend her and would love to send her more work in the future!
