Testimonials

Angela is a very sharp editor, and a pleasure to work with. She has a keen eye for detail, is collaborative and gave insightful advice to help improve not only the project she was working on, but the series as a whole. She repeatedly went the extra mile while working to very tight deadlines to make sure that the book was finished on time and looked great. An absolute star.

Holly Edgar, Managing Editor, Caribbean, Macmillan Education

Working with Angela has been great. As a copy-editor, she strikes a good balance between the needs of authors and the need to get the book produced. Her suggestions and advice – and her copy-editing – are thoughtful and designed to help the author and the publisher realise the book they wanted.

Professor Paul Joyce, Leeds Beckett University

Angela has been great to work with, she provides relevant and thoughtful copy-writing meeting any deadlines.  She has also been immensely helpful in additional ways like putting me in touch with some of her contacts and sharing our stories on social media – really going the extra mile.

Mel Cousins, Marketing, Field Studies Council

Angela produced a great blog on a challenging subject. I was delighted with the result – she did a really good job with a difficult piece of writing!

Daniel Heuman, CEO & Founder, Intelligent Editing Ltd

We are delighted to be working with AJ Enterprises, we always receive prompt attention and they offer a truly thorough proofreading service with accuracy, speed and of course, meticulous attention to detail. And to top it all off, Angela is a real pleasure to deal with.
