I am amazed by your incredibly keen eye, your rigor, your elegance, and your sense of economy. I agree with about 99% of your interventions. And aside from being right, they were all presented in such a wonderful, respectful way. It has been a true pleasure to be engaged in this long dialogue with you.

Erin did a fantastic job copyediting my most recent hiking guidebook. Not only did she catch several factual errors, but she also reworked the book organization so that the whole work flows better. Of course, she corrected all my punctuation and grammar errors—and she made suggestions for wording changes that made the book read better. I highly recommend Erin!

I initially hired Erin to proofread my manuscript. She was timely, reasonably priced, and kept in touch with me as she progressed. My manuscript had previously been edited and vetted by my beta readers, so I was astonished with how many line items she keyed into that so many others had missed. So I had her do a combination of developmental editing and copyediting on my first three chapters as I knew her input would only improve the opening to my novel. And again I was amazed with what she caught content wise that I and others had missed. She is truly a gifted editor. Erin’s careful, skillful work on my manuscript has given me the confidence to move toward publication. I’m very grateful to have discovered her.
