Anna was absolutely fantastic when we worked with her on a project recently. We needed a last-minute copy typist to transfer a large amount of digital data that couldn’t be copied into a Word document. She managed to turn it around within a few days and within our budget. Great attention to detail, was able to use her own initiative but willing to ask relevant questions when necessary.
I would highly recommend working with her.
Anna has always been extremely fast, efficient and helpful. We were a hundred percent confident that she would deliver through the process and she even gave us more than she originally offered. Very professional.
It was an absolute pleasure to use Annas services as proof reader/editor. Anna gave the whole process that personal touch by working closely with me every step of the way and keeping me in the loop as to the changes that were being made and why – highly recommended :)
I’m a published author with ten non-fiction U-boat histories and one band biography. Anna proofread my latter book detailing the history of the Blaze Bayley band (“At The End Of The Day”) and did an exceptional job. I wish she had been around when my first book was published by a reputable publisher un-proofed back in 2001!
