Your edit was excellent!  This is exactly the level of scrutiny that I want.  I want my readers to have a hassle-free reading experience.  I'm so glad I picked up your brochure.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  What a gift to have your encouragement and wisdom about my book.  You picked up on exactly the places I was uneasy about and offered ways to solve those problems.  I appreciate it very much!!

As a Shield

I thought you would like to know that today we were offered a contract for As a Shield from a small traditional/royalty-paying publisher.  Thank you for all your work to make it possible.  I do appreciate your kind as well as your frank comments. Fiction writing is new for me, and there is no doubt in my mind that having you edit this manuscript was for me the equivalent to taking a college class in fiction writing. You have helped me immensely.

Great to work with, fast response time, and keeping the audience in mind through edits.

Few Call it War

Carol Crawford did an amazing job in taking chapters written over many years on several different computer systems and putting them together in a fashion that makes the book more readable and shorter.  Great job!

I am forever in your debt for providing the kick in the butt I needed.

 I love your balance when it comes to editing/critiquing. You express areas that need to be edited in a friendly manner and also offer insights into how certain parts of the book made you feel as a reader.

I needed focus, time and professional advice, and got all three.  Carol was wonderful:  expert, engaging, open, inspiring.  She's legitimate in the trade.

You are the best.  Thanks so much for your input and insight.  I’m very pleased.   I will refer anyone who needs a fantastic editor to you.

I found Carol's eye for detail in helping me craft my novel thorough, spot-on.  She helped me with everything from verb tenses to point of view and was always supportive along the way, even as I had to rewrite more than once!   I highly recommend her for superb professionalism in any editorial context.

Carol Crawford has been my favorite editor long before she created

For twenty years I have depended on her honest but tactful suggestions on how to polish my work and make it ready for submission. It gives me a great sense of confidence to have had her eyes look at my poetry or prose and tell me what she thinks. I highly recommend Carol Crawford as your editor.
