Editing Testimonials

“I really enjoyed working with Genevieve. She was always professional, worked very quickly and even returned my manuscript ahead of schedule. She found a tonne of corrections in my novel Oathbreaker (almost 1000 in 75k words in fact), even after my usual editor and proofreader had gone through it. She will definitely be my editor of choice for the remaining books in the series!” – New York Times Bestselling Author Aaron Hodges 

“Genevieve is the best editor I’ve used, and I couldn’t be more pleased.  She is responsive, thorough, and fast.  Most importantly, the books are better for her involvement, and that’s really the biggest compliment I can give.” – Jacob Peppers, author of the bestselling “Seven Virtues” series

“I am extremely happy to have used the services of Genevieve Lerner. She was recommended to me by one of my coworkers and at first, I was skeptical of using her. Why? Because I had used three different editors, one with a Ph.D. but I don’t think they did a good job. So, I told myself, Genevieve will probably be like the other editors but why not give her a chance. Boy was I wrong. I’m glad I gave her a shot because she caught things my original editors should have caught. What else can one ask for? Her prices are very competitive… I actually think she should charge more for the quality of work she provides, and the turnaround is quick. I will definitely use her services again and highly recommend her to other writers.” – Alex Iheaka

“I’ve been a professional author for over a year now and it has taken me that long to find an editor as awesome as Genevieve. Not only does she have a quick turnaround but she is a delight to work with. Her edits are superb and her comments are priceless. 10/10!” – Stevie Collier, author of the “Dark Assassins” series

“I set Genevieve a pretty tough challenge. Less than five days for a 100k novel. She was cool and calm about it–very much appreciated considering how frazzled I was feeling! And, ‘lo and behold, right on time, even though I know I asked a lot of her, she delivered. Smooth, seamless. She found a ton of things that a lot of eyes missed, and not only will I use her services again, but I feel a lot happier knowing that the final readthrough is in her hands!” – Serena Akyeroyd, author of “Quintessence” series and “Kingdom of Veronia” series

“I have had the pleasure of working with Genevieve on two of my books now and I am amazed at what she is able to do. She is professional and very fast. I was one of those writers that thought all I needed was a proofread on my books. Genevieve showed me just how wrong that thinking is; she went beyond proofing and taught me about repetitive words and phrases that I never realized I used. I really can’t recommend her services enough and I can only hope that she will continue to work with me once she hits the big time in the editing world (trust me, she will get there). Thank you Genevieve for an excellent job.” – MJ Caan, author of “The Girl with the Good Magic” and “Enter the Wolf”
