“I was fortunate to have the editing services of Amanda Bird in the preparation of the book I self-published last year. As a new author I needed a lot of help and guidance, which Amanda provided with incredible competence.” –Jim Inglis, Breakthrough Retailing
“All of [the previous editors] were mechanically proficient, but you actually tapped into the meaning of what I was writing. You instinctively picked up on areas I wasn’t particularly pleased with but didn’t know how to improve. That is a true gift.” –Lane Cohee, The Disquieted Soul
“I can’t thank you enough for carving out time for me, for your valuable insights, and instilling hope that it will be clear and helpful to others.” –Mary Naegeli, Deep Breathing and Why I Don’t Pray
“I liked working with you and I liked our mutual understanding, despite the fact that we are of different nationalities.” –Tamara Reznikov, And the Stars Saw It All (translated from Russian)
“I am so grateful for your work. I couldn’t be happier with the job you have done. … I had really hoped to find someone who understood the ethos from which I wrote. You nailed it!” –Kevin Ford, Lepunia: Kingdom of the Jackrabbits (forthcoming)
