Laura was brilliant for my novel – before the project even started she laid out to me her expectations and time requirements and read through a sample chapter before providing a quote. Her communication was great throughout, and by the time my manuscript was handed back, there were hundreds of easy to work through track changes, suggestions for edits on clunky lines, and continuity corrections. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, and will be using her again for future books.

Laura worked with us on a report earlier this year and her proofreading undoubtedly led to an improved report. Her proofreading not only met the deadline but was excellent and thorough, and she provided clear comments to explain suggested edits/ changes which were really helpful in the review process. Many thanks to Laura and we would undoubtedly approach her in future for further proofreading work.

Just brilliant, Laura is a dedicated professional who has made a significant contribution to the quality of the finished novel – I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else. An absolute star!

We’re a national charity and were seeking a proof reader to help with proofing of our national training materials.

Laura was extremely quick at responding to my request. She was very diligent and turned around the work very quickly.

I would definitely recommend her and would be happy to call on her again for future work.

I was extremely pleased with the proofreading that Laura did for me on the Plastic Paradigm and Shades of Loyalty. Her attention to detail was second to none. She understood the project well and respected my work as the author while suggesting notable improvements. I can without hesitation highly recommend her work.

I work as an independent agent, and I have worked with Laura more than a half year since this April. Laura is an excellent proofreader who always pays attention to details. And I really appreciate that Laura can always keep fast turnaround. The works I sent to Laura were all from the students who are speaking English as a second language.
