The author wrote “As a first time writer, I had a lot to learn about the entire process of getting a book from the initial draft to the final, finished product. . . . Thankfully, I decided to invest in a professional. Philip definitely knows his stuff. He offered objective feedback that caused me to dig deeper. Not only did he strengthen my manuscript, but he has made me a better writer. If you are wondering if it's worth it to hire an editor —it is!”

"Without Philip's help, I could never have written and published my memoirs. Not only is the finished product much better than I ever could have imagined, but the whole process was very rewarding. Philip and his team are professional in every sense of the word, and I benefited first hand from his intuitive editing skills - his ability to rearrange a passage with skill and subtlety without sacrificing anything of the narrative. And all done with a lightness and humour that makes working together pure fun.

"He also taught me the satisfaction of discipline and deadlines! Now that the book is completed, there will be a sad silence at 10.00 p.m., when we had most of our working conversations - I'm a night owl and that's my prime time! Thank you, dear Philip!"

- Joyce Bryant, CM, BEM, author of Slender Threads.
