“As an editor, the job can be thankless and at times painstaking. It takes a certain love for words and writers to be able to do it year in and year out. Working with a passionate editor can actually make all the difference when it comes to your own dream of being a writer. You see, an editor can either encourage or discourage you. The balance is necessary in order to create a working relationship with the author. Carol Good not only did all of this, but filled me with confidence. Her expertise was on mark at all times and she took the time needed to get to know my style, my craft and what I wanted to say as a writer. I highly recommend her, and after working with many editors I can say with full confidence that you are in great hands.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Carol for some 18 months while I was wandering around Southeast Asia. During these travels, I wrote a blog about two or three times a month about my experiences, the people I met, and the sights I saw. Carol was kind enough to edit my blogs before we published them.
“She did the standard, basic editing like checking for misplaced commas and incompatibilities between the number of the subject and the number of the verb and I am grateful to her for that. But Carol took the initiative to do far more than that. She read my blogs – in fact, studied my blogs – from the perspective of a reader who would scan the blogs quickly to follow my story. I was embarrassed dozens of times when she picked up mistakes I had made. Sometimes those mistakes were subtle and sometimes glaring. In all cases, though, they were important. More than that, she read my blogs with an eye to readability. In other words, she edited them to ensure that they flowed well and never caused a reader to trip or stumble. She wanted the blogs to flow like silk.
“You can read those blogs at www.LifeAsAHuman.com/author/janwall. Like every author, I would like to claim that the quality of these blogs was entirely due to my own erudite skills. But that would be false, though. Carol’s editing gave my blogs an extra ‘polish’ they never would have had otherwise.
“If you are looking for an editor who goes beyond the mechanics of editing and deals with the readers’ experiences as well, I highly recommend Carol. I am confident you will be pleased with the quality of her work and the experience of working with her.”
