Annie is excellent at tidying up my manuscripts, helping me present readers with a polished book every time! She’s quick, dependable, and always great at catching the little things that slip past me.
C. Greenwood, USA Today Bestselling Author

I write Australian stories for a global audience and there’s one person I can rely on to ensure we all end up speaking the same language. She’s a whiz at highlighting obscure slang, catching niggling errors and ensuring my books are as clean and professional-looking as possible. She’s a joy to work with, a font of knowledge and an endless source of positivity and support. 

Every writer needs a strong, smart editor with a sense of humor. I am fortunate to have found that person in Annie. She has a wonderful sixth sense about what I’m trying to say and sculpts my intentions into understandable form. I cannot recommend her highly enough if you are looking for the best possible burnishing of your tender manuscript.
H. Byron Ballard, Embracing Willendorf

How did I ever publish a book before Annie came along? I thought I had a firm grasp on grammar, but she catches things I never knew were mistakes. I’ve had readers comment on how well edited my books are now, something that never happened before I made the investment with the Editing Pen. If you’re writing, you need to put your book in front of a great editor before you hit “publish,” and Annie’s the best.
Linda Crowder, The Deadly Art of Deception

I highly recommend Annie for her outstanding editing services. I expect an editor to do the usual line edits for grammar, punctuation, and spelling. But to explain contemporary standards to someone who grew up old school and to provide CMOS instances? To point out that my protagonist took too passive a role in the capture of the villain? In short, to make the book dramatically better than when I submitted it. If you want an editor who understands your genre and will take the time and effort to make your book the very best it can be, look no further than The Editing Pen. Nanci Rathbun, award-winning author of the PI Angelina Bonaparte Crime Thrillers

Annie was amazing. As she worked with my characters she made sure they all kept their voice and personality while tightening up my free-spirited writing. In addition to the editing, she also gave me so many helpful tips to send me down the right path on my journey. I will definitely be using her for my future books. Thank you, thank you!
