“Discovering the services of Shadowcat Editing is one of the best things to happen to me as a writer. A great editor can make all the difference in the world of independent publishers. Robin is not only a tremendous talent, she is reliable, easy to work with and good with communication. She delivers your manuscript promptly according to schedule (early, in my case), and her work is a great value. I highly recommend her services to any writer who is serious about their craft.”

Death After Dishonor

I had a very specific set of requirements, and Robin was more than up to the challenge. With a strict deadline and a publisher waiting, Robin promptly and professionally did her thing, so now I have a happy agent, a happy publisher and a happy me. Thank you, Robin!

“I cannot recommend Robin highly enough. She is a true professional. It’s obvious that she takes tremendous pride in her work and her reputation. … It was comforting to review work submitted to her knowing that any changes recommended kept your voice and style alive in the piece. An absolute pleasure to work with.”

Beyond Your Voice

Robin was excellent to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and brutally honest with her take on all aspects of manuscript. My first recommendation to anyone.

Welcome To Rio! Well, Maybe Not...

“I am a first time author. From the beginning, Robin’s post for editing services immediately stood out as special among the sea of other profiles. We began work and when I received her 1st round of edits, I was even more assured that I had selected the right person. I really appreciated that her comments were thorough. In addition they were delivered with the right balance of being frank and encouraging. I received timely updates and responses which helped our project progress smoothly. Robin delivered exactly what I was looking for and more and I happily recommend her for content and copy editing!”

“Robin was fabulous to work with, she respected the time deadlines, responded promptly to communications and I learned a lot working with her. She did a great job editing my book.” Raphael Allred, MD

Happy Naturally

“I engaged Robin for a manuscript critique, and she responded (ahead of her promised deadline) with detailed, constructive feedback that will lead to a more refined and complete story. Her comments crystallized my own concerns, which I found very helpful, and brought up issues I had not considered. My book will be much improved as a result of her review, and I look forward to working with Robin in the future. ”

The Azazel Syndrome

Robin’s edits don’t just fix the broken stuff, but she uses sidebar comments to encourage and challenge the author. I love the way she doesn’t just make a change but challenges me to think about it. At times she will offer guidance and advice, at others just point out a flaw or awkward phrase and the net result is a book that is infinitely more pleasing to read. Thank you Robin, and I look forward to working with you on the sequel!

To Raise A King

I hired Robin to do one last read of my book and boy am I glad I did. She caught mistakes that an earlier editor did not and turned around my work quickly. Because of her work, I put out a book that I am confident in. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

“I had trialed a handful of copyeditors before sticking with Robin. What sets her apart? She’s versatile, analytical, and dependable. Rarely does anything get past her. Although I was prepared to keep a few different kinds of editors on hand, for more casual versus more technical work, I found Robin to be suited for both. She’s a critical thinker, which allows her to ask the right questions making sure she unwinds my thoughts accurately and in the appropriate style. And she’s usually able to return my docs the same day. Would highly recommend her work.”
