Testimonials

What a treat to find an editor I can trust completely!

I have been so happy with Mikaela’s services. True to her deadlines, she has insightful comments on my work and is always available to not only answer my questions, but also offer sourced information about her decisions, making it clear she knows exactly what she’s talking about. Mikaela always has such great advice about changes—some big, some small—that end up making my books more engaging and entertaining. I look forward to reading her comments about my manuscript almost as much as a Kirkus Review. Top notch!

This was my first time paying real money for an editor. I was worried that this relationship would turn out like many online relationships do and Mikaela would disappear completely or make excuses as to why my book wasn’t finished, yet.  Boy was I wrong! She kept in touch with me and dropped my manuscript into my inbox on the exact day she said she would. My book would not have turned out so well if I hadn’t had it edited properly. Mikaela wrote honest comments that helped me make the changes myself, which helped me to be a better writer. I would definitely recommend Mikaela’s services. She is reliable, honest, and direct. I think any writer would be lucky to nab a spot in Mikaela’s schedule.  Book her right now!

I never knew how much work my manuscripts actually needed!

It’s always hard to hire someone you haven’t worked with before, but I’m glad I chose Mikaela. She helped me take my novels to new heights. With her editing and advice, my series will better reach and entertain my readers and sell more copies. If you are deciding whether you need an editor or which to use, talk to Mikaela.

I can’t wait to work with her again!

I was very nervous to send my “baby” to a complete stranger, but with English as my second language, I knew some work needed to be done! I contacted Mikaela to edit my first novel, Painting Sky, which would not have been published without her much-needed help. She’s an excellent professional, meets the agreed schedule, is very thorough, and communicates excellently. I already booked her to edit my second novel!

With Mikaela, I can write the way I want to write!

With terrific attention to detail and knowledge of grammar, Mikaela is easy to work with and always available to answer my questions. She catches all of my mistakes, helping me produce a book I am proud to publish. One of the greatest benefits from working with her is the sense of freedom I now have to just write.

She caught things I hadn’t even thought of!

Mikaela is prompt and professional with reasonably-priced services. She turns around projects faster than most editors and has a great eye for detail and consistency. Thanks to her editing and advice, my books read well and have an edge of realism. I am so glad I found her!

I heartily recommend her!

Mikaela is a great line and copy editor. She not only corrects spelling and grammar gaffes but also tells me what’s not working (trust me, I need this), giving me time to improve the manuscript before it goes to print. I’ll definitely be using her services again in the future!

Prompt, professional, and very affordable!

Mikaela took on my manuscript after editing a sample for me, and I can say her editing and suggestions have been first class. I encourage anyone out there in need of a new editor to dive right in.

I can’t say enough great things about her work!

I highly recommend Mikaela; she is a joy to work with. Before I hired her, my book was rejected by Amazon for having too many typos after another company edited it. After Mikaela’s changes, however, it has never gotten criticism again. It’s so important to publish a flawless book, and she makes sure you do just that!
