Testimonials

Here’s what they say:

Working with Amy was an indispensable piece of completing and self-publishing my book. When I first contacted her, I had a completed book but no clue what to do next, and no clue if it was even readable. Amy provided a lot of much-needed advice and feedback, in addition to editing, and was so kind and supportive. Her perspective as a reader was very valuable and led to many improvements. You couldn’t ask for a better collaborator as an indie author.
—Sandra Schmidt, author of Ghost & Goal

Amy, you have the magic touch. Honestly, I’ve never had a better editor.
