'Laura has been an absolute star - well, a 5 star, actually. She is virtually a one woman band self publisher, using the Amazon self publishing platform, but doing all the practical work as well as some great creative content, such as writing my book jacket. She is thoughtful, supportive, helpful and prompt, and I highly recommend her if you need any kind of help with your book, whether it's proofreading, editing or self-publishing - and she can help with marketing too. I wouldn't hesitate to use Laura again.'
'I'm so glad I asked Laura to work with me. She is so warm and friendly and on the many occasions I 'phoned her to make minor adjustments to my manuscript, she had infinite patience with me, never asking if she could phone me back. Laura's critique of my work really helped me. She makes practical suggestions which she knows the writer is capable of. Her proofreading is just what I needed for a professional finish to my manuscript. Laura even suggested I change the title of my book (of short stories) and I came up with a title that was befitting of all my stories and not just the first one. And Laura's fast work at an affordable price was the icing on the cake. I would recommend Laura to anyone. - Arthur Lester, author of 'Meet Me on Frodsham Station'
'Many thanks for the swift return. I agree with everything that you have said and your advice is extremely helpful...Your critique has been of immense value.' - Paul Purnell

“The quick response time and level of professionalism is unmatched: Your warm and friendly response to our initial inquiry about the possibility of being offered your services; your ready response to peruse a sample chapter or two of the manuscript; your acceptance to proofread it within a fortnight, and, successfully doing so in less than the estimated time. Above all, I am very satisfied with your remarkable editorial services that have enhanced both the clarity and readability of my manuscript. ”

Thank you very much for looking over the manuscript and giving constructive feedback. I knew there would be mistakes and errors, but having you point them out and explain why they don't work in the story is really helpful. Iv'e been looking forward to hearing back from you and now that I have I [sic] better idea of how I can improve this novel. Thanks again.
"Laura is a professional person providing an exceptional service at a reasonable price. I was very pleased with the proofreading and copyediting services provided by her efficiently and promptly. I really appreciated her immediate response every time I sent her an amendment. Wish her all the best, and definitely will recommend her to everyone!" - Najat
Laura is a professional proofreader who works carefully and effectively with my MA degree dissertation. My grammar and syntax are carefully reedited, and she finally gave two versions back, one of which shows every correction clearly. The proofreading service can probably be finished within 24 hours. It is really satisfying, and I believe that everyone can afford it !"
