“It was very easy to work with Amy.  Once she started editing my book, she gave me regular updates letting me know how things were progressing. Amy made some very useful suggestions and pointed out things in the book that need clarification. She suggested I put a map in my book letting readers know where in Europe my book was set and to add a page explaining some of the terms I had used. Amy’s skills were invaluable to me and I feel I now have a very professional manuscript.”
