Testimonials

I’d highly recommend Louise. She did an excellent job of editing and proofreading my latest book … With an excellent eye for detail, I’d not only recommend Louise for book editing, but also for articles, blog posts and proposals where accuracy is essential. So much so, that I’ve now recommended Louise to many of my clients who are going through a similar journey, and I also asked her to contribute to my book.
