“I asked Valerie Gwynn to review an academic article I was preparing for publication in the Thomas Hardy Journal‘s autumn 2019 issue entitled “Hardy Now”. Her turnaround was timely and her feedback succinct. She paid close attention to issues of parallelism, word choice, and clarity of concept. Her line editing was especially useful as was her thoughtful commentary on the article’s argumentation. She was invaluable in pointing out to me places in which my argument needed additional textual support, elaboration, and/or clarification. I am convinced that her help in preparing this manuscript contributed to its acceptance and forthcoming publication.”

“Valerie is assisting myself and my cowriter with our Urban Fantasy series. Her line editing abilities are fantastic, saving us from embarrassing typos even our beta readers missed. Her eye for consistency in plot has kept us on track, and her ability to understand a character and their voice has saved us a time or two as well. She’s also helping us with a series bible. Valerie has a solid grasp on editing for genre fiction, and has had a positive impact on our series. She’s easy to work with and able to meet reasonable deadlines.”
