Testimonials

Libby is fantastic to work with, a very committed editor with a good eye for detail.

Sarah Hembrow – Publishing Director at Vulpine Press

Libby’s assessment of my manuscript was spot on! She understood what I was trying to achieve and offered practical guidance in the steps I should take to tackle revisions. I found her assessment so helpful that I immediately signed up to work with her one on one to revise the manuscript and finally get it heading in the direction it needs to go. Libby is so easy to work with; she tailors everything to meet my needs as a writer, and we work at a pace that suits me. I have recommended Libby to everyone I know. Her services are a worthy investment for any writer wanting to take their novel to the next level.

Tanya Nellestein – Emerging author

Libby is a patient, thorough, and knowledgeable editor. I look forward to her developmental edits the most because she summarizes my characters and plots better than I ever could, and her suggestions are always gold. Those extensive reports help me perfect my stories in subsequent drafts, and her copy edits make those perfected stories even tighter. I learn something new about storytelling with every draft! Without her, my debut novel would have been twice as long and half as exciting—I owe dozens of positive reviews on Goodreads to her. I’m grateful to be able to work with her on future projects, and any writer would be lucky to have her on their team!

Alyson Caraway – Author of Bound to You

I was introduced to Libby when I was looking for an editor and mentor who would give clear, accurate and to-the-point feedback, but who would also deliver what was positive about my writing, the story, and was encouraging in their approach. Libby has helped me shape the structure of my manuscript, enhance its themes and deepen both character and point of view. She has also been very direct about the areas of the manuscript that need more work. I’m hoping to submit my manuscript to an agent, and with Libby’s help, I can put my best draft forward. My manuscript is a much stronger story for Libby’s involvement. I’m enormously grateful to her and would highly recommend the experience of working with her either as an editor or mentor.

Nancy Cunningham – Emerging author

Libby is a dream to work with. From day one, she understood what I was trying to achieve and provided helpful and timely feedback. She was careful to ensure my work was as clean and professional as possible while allowing me to maintain my voice. I love having her in my corner.

Eliza Bennetts – Author of Summer at Urchin’s Bluff

I had an assessment completed by Libby. It was clear from her feedback that Libby is experienced and has a deep understanding of editing. She provided specific examples and offered valuable explanations for her reasoning. I truly believe my manuscript has been improved because of her advice. Libby also copyedited my second manuscript, and I was so happy with the final result. She was thorough, on time and respected my work as the writer. I am so happy to have found someone I trust with something so important.

Rania Battany – Author of Fleeting Moments

Libby is dedicated to making each story the best it can be; she guides me to hone my strengths and build on my weaknesses without destroying my confidence. Libby has encouraged me every step of the way to be a better writer. I love that her edits point out what works as well as what could be improved. I’m looking forward to being the writer I will become under her patience and guidance.

Vikki Holstein – Author of Breaking Storm

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! This is exactly what I was looking for, if not more! Your feedback has given me direction. Your advice is very helpful and you gave it to me in a way that was supportive and made me excited to go back and work on my project. It was not destructive but still direct. Thank you again. You are really good at this!
