“She was thorough and utterly professional, insightful and obviously well read within the genre, and respectful and even enthusiastic in her feedback. The book will be much improved by her work on it, and I heartily recommend her services to anyone looking for an editor.”

“Robin was a delight to work with. She was very thorough and did a great job! I will definitely work with her again in the near future.”

“I had worked with a different professional editor for two rounds before working with Robin. I personally had read my manuscript probably a dozen times, looking for errors. I thought I had a clean copy. But Robin found several mistakes throughout the book, including some fact/plot consistency points that were critical. There’s no question she improved my work. Money well spent!”
