We requested copy editing and all suggestions, both large and small were great. As far as we are aware no further errors were found after the first print edition which shows the high standard that Ms Tatton works to.

Amanda was a pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness are second-to-none and her proofreading skills are exceptional. She picked up on things both my editor and I had missed. I’m very grateful for her contribution to my book.

Amanda provided a professional editing service to assist with the final stages of my novel. She was extremely helpful, and suggested various improvements to help with my text. My novel has definitely improved with Amanda’s help!

I have used Amanda’s editorial services and I can recommend her wholeheartedly. She was very generous with her time, thorough and insightful.  A pleasure to work with.
