Why hire us?
If you want to avoid low (or no) sales and, worst of all, bad/negative reviews, it's crucial to have a trusted professional review and edit your manuscript before you introduce it to the world. Friends, family, and even beta readers will tell you only what they think you want to hear, either trying to be helpful or trying to avoid hurt feelings (or awkward family dinners). You need someone not only to rip off the bandage and tell you the honest truth, but to gently and respectfully help guide you through the process of polishing your book and getting it ready for the cruel, harsh light of day.
"I LOVED working with Christina Kaye, and most recently, Shannon, from Top Shelf Editing. They are professional, proficient, and easy to work with. Christina didn't just edit my manuscript, she left notes, tips, and educated me where I needed help so that when I worked on my next project, I was better prepared. THAT is a good editor. Someone who truly cares about what the authors are doing and thrives on helping them become a better writer. I would highly recommend working with them. Christina has worked on all three of my books in my trilogy, and I plan to continue working with her for my future projects!
Shannon gave great critique for content editing and I was able to go back and rewrite a few areas to really make my book shine. Thank you again, ladies, I'm so happy I found you."
