I asked Pamela to edit my novel draft for plot and character consistency. She returned to me a three-page description of items she thought warranted my attention. She was right about everything. I took her advice on structural changes and story line inconsistencies. She made very helpful comments about mechanics, and she assisted me in assigning its genre. No matter how many times I would go back and edit myself, I was never going to catch all the things guaranteed to bother my readers. Pam’s discerning eye gave me the help I needed. Once I had put her advice into effect, I felt much more confident about moving on to publishing my manuscript.
Pamela was very communicative and on top of things. Her feedback was poignant, accurate, and useful. I think she has an honest opinion and was able to give feedback constructively.
I have been in banking and commercial real estate for nearly 40 years. When I decided to take a sabbatical and write an essential book on our housing industry, I found I knew little about the world of writing and authoring works. I feel pretty lucky to have found Pam during the editing process of the book. She was patient and understanding and took the time to walk me through what I needed to accomplish in a reasonable timeline. During our time together, Pam displayed talent in editing. As with works of nonfiction and, in my case, nearly 700 citations to be facilitated, Pam was there to both teach and perform her duties. Her understanding of editing grew far more than that of her peers. It’s not just her technical skills that impress me, however. Pam was a joy to work with because of her amazingly positive attitude and determination. Her patience and willingness to put in the extra assistance I needed were valued not just by myself but by her peers who often relied on her to get the job done.
I hired Pamela to polish up a book proposal and query letter for me. She did an excellent job of following my direction and making valuable suggestions to improve my work. She also communicated very well with me and completed the job in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with her work. So much so in fact, that I extended the contract to have her format my manuscript for me as well. Pamela is a great freelancer and I highly recommend her for your writing and editing needs.
It was wonderful to work with Pamela. She was professional, courteous, extremely time-responsive. I had an excellent experience and will most definitely work with her again.
