Client Endorsements

71skVOzNJfL._SL1382_Before working with Elizabeth, I was a little apprehensive about having an editor go over my manuscript. But all my fears were set-aside at the first phone conference we had. She is very easy to work with, and she not only improved my manuscript greatly, I was able to learn a lot through the notes she added as she edited. I am planning and hoping to have her edit my next book.
– W. Richard Lawrence, author of Fatal Transaction

41B7BCWgAsL._SY346_I was very pleased with the quality of edits I received for my fiction manuscript from Elizabeth. She did an excellent job at tightening up my manuscript and giving suggestions without altering my voice. Elizabeth has a gift for editing without over-editing, and giving helpful feedback while maintaining integrity of the story. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor for my debut novel. Simply outstanding!
– Tessa Emily Hall, author of Purple Moon

Lake SurrenderElizabeth Easter has a detailed eye for errors as well as an intrinsic understanding as to what works in a story. I used her for my first novel and appreciated her insight into helping develop my main character. Her comments were detailed and she was available to go into more depth about her comments on my manuscript. I highly recommend her. She gives the author a fair and honest view of their manuscript. She’s tough and that’s a good thing to help an author’s story shine.
– Carol G. Stratton, author of Lake Surrender

From the dedication to Lake Surrender: “Elizabeth Easter, what a blessing you’ve been, taking my manuscript with its possibilities and many awkward passages, and in brutal but loving honesty spelled out what worked and what didn’t. A writer is often blind to their own story’s weaknesses, and you helped me strengthen the story to give it muscle. Thank you, Elizabeth, for your challenging critiques to make my book more believable.”

71tOzSj59eL._SL1241_Elizabeth Easter, you deserve a gold medal for your gift and talent for editing, and another one for patience. Thank you, Elizabeth. Maybe now I’ll know when to use an em dash and an ellipsis. -Marianne Jordan, author of The First Christmas Carol

Thanks…this is why writers need editors…

Thank you for your input, encouragement, and wanting me to put more of me into it, to have it the best it can be.

I also appreciate that you get it, you heard me. I still could have shelved this, I won’t now.

From a message to Keanan from a potential client who realized she needed to wait and do more revisions before hiring an editor:

Thank you so much. This is the best information I’ve had about writing outside of reading a few writing books.
