Writing a book? You've come to the right place.
Thank you for your great copyedits! Your work helped refine my words and polish my stories. (Melanie Dobson, Enchanted Isle and Beneath a Golden Veil.
Michelle brings a keen eye for grammar and usage to everything she’s edited for me. My text is not only cleaner but clearer as a result. She is also meticulous in her fact-checking. (Bestselling author and 2017 Audie Winner Sabra Waldfogel, Sister of Mine, Neither Death nor Distance, Charleston's Daughter, New South, Union's Daughter, The Fall of Natchez, Motor City at War)
Thank you for the best copy edits ever. I appreciate you taking the time to explain why you think changes need to happen, and most of your suggestions for alternatives were spot on. I hope we can work together again. (International bestselling author Kerry Anne King, Whisper Me This)
Michelle is an absolute pleasure to work with—a gentle, instructive developmental editor I know I can trust with any manuscript, whether it's from a high-touch, experienced writer or a first-time author looking for both a better book and actionable advice he or she can take to heart for the next book. Her improvements are so natural and well thought out that I'm always so excited for authors to receive their edited materials. I'm grateful to work with Michelle, and clients are too! (Rita Kelly, account executive for a publisher)
Ms. Horn has been simply wonderful to work with. She is professional, communicative, and prompt. Her work is thorough and her feedback most helpful. I will be returning to her for future projects! (Deidre J. Owen, author of the We‘re All Just People series and Trial by Reflection)
Thank you for helping me with my novel! You have turned my book into something I can be proud of and helped me improve as an author. (C. R. Preston, author, The Spanish Guru and The Ostrich Farmer)
[Michelle's] attention to detail was impressive, and she would comment on areas of the story with positive comments. As a new writer, this was important to me. (Steve Smith, author, I Know What Really Happened)
An excellent editor, Michelle Horn not only found and corrected the usual grammar and punctuation errors, the low-hanging fruit of copyediting, but she saw how a "good" book could become a "great" book by suggesting how the main character might show more feelings. She also caught those murky passages that may have made sense to the author but would puzzle any reader. I am grateful for Michelle's professional advice and direction. (Bill Allison, The Apprentice)
You did such a thorough job, Michelle, and the report looks so much more polished now! (QA reviewer)
The edit that you did on my story was excellent. It improved my story 100 percent. (Thomas Cane, Civil War historian and author)
Michelle has an amazing eye for detail...Michelle went beyond what I expected and added great value. (B. Bansal, author, The Birth and Evolution of Science)
You are truly a professional editor: organized, detailed, and conscientious. (D. Stocco, book designer)
Michelle’s strengths are lots of feedback, examples, and choice. (Author's note to publisher)
