Proofreading testimonial:

"When we were looking for a proofreader for our new book series Secrets Exposed, we came across Katy Holliday, and boy are we glad we did! She worked on our three books, which had very tight deadlines, and did an amazing job. Her communication with us throughout the process was great, and she really exceeded our expectations. Not to mention, her proofreading skills were perfect and she did a brilliant job on all three books. We would highly recommend Katy to anyone in the future."

Power of Words

Hi Vanessa, I have been a book editor for five years. Last year, I line edited a helpful book by a psychologist that was 97,000 words. I have rarely seen a book manuscript that doesn't need copy editing and some guidance, particularly one where the 'editor' was a student or friend. Hence my costing allows for a little more than proofreading.

I am familiar with APA referencing and I use a tool along with my eye to reference.

This is what my recent author said:

“Your editing is exactly what I needed in all the many areas that I did not know enough. I am so very grateful to have found you. I know the book will be much improved as a result.” ⁓ Eve Dyer, Psychologist
