Sandra is thorough, professional, and very personable. As a writer of historical romance, I appreciate the attention to detail that Sandra puts into every edit. She often looks up facts and literary references to make sure that what I’ve written is appropriate to the time period. I always know that I will receive useful comments and suggestions and she is usually quick to reply to emails. It has been a pleasure to work with Sandra and I often recommend her to author friends looking for a new editor.”

“As a debut author, each step in the publishing process brings with it equal amounts of excitement and trepidation.

Not knowing what to expect, you rely on what you’ve heard from those who have gone before you down the path and always hope that your experience will mirror those who have positive experiences.

Such was the case for me the first time my work was sent out by my publisher for content edits. When I received my first round of edits back and opened them up, I took a deep breath and began reading. From the very first comment from Sandra, I knew everything was going to be okay.  Her easy way of communicating to me throughout the manuscript eased my nerves and her style is the perfect combination of encouragement and constructive feedback.

She truly understands the heart and mind of an author and is adept at helping them see the possibility of their manuscripts. Her insight into character development, major and minor plot developments and overall storytelling provides valuable feedback to take your story to the next level. 

I’m very fortunate to have had my first experience with the editing process completed by such a warm and caring professional.  I look forward to working with Sandra and WriteType Editorial Services in the future!”
