Amy is the complete professional. As well as offering a comprehensive analysis of the current draft of my thriller she has also helped me develop a plan for the next phase. She has brought energy and extensive expertise to the collaboration. She has highlighted those areas of the manuscript in need of improvement as well as offering encouragement in relation to its strengths. I look forward to our continuing collaboration and know that she will push me hard. Excellent!
Amy is a very thoughtful editor. She outlined the problems with the current phase of my manuscript and provided me with the tools necessary for the next phase and beyond. Her patience with my manuscript was nothing short of outstanding. Even for someone new like me she is very approachable and works quickly to get to the point. It was an honour to work with her.
Amy went above and beyond for this job. She was thorough in her prior research and made sure she understood exactly what I needed out of the product. The products were fantastic she put a lot of thought into the documents. She also put comments along with the drafts to explain her thinking and offer additional suggestions. I'd hire Amy again in an instant and would recommend her to everyone else as well!
It’s such a pleasure working with Amy. She really gets what nonprofit communications professionals have to deal with every day. I highly recommend her!
I knew in my gut that I had a strong book, so putting my manuscript into Amy's hands was a major step toward making it great. With a quick turnaround, she applied aspects of structure, motif, and character development to my re-write, aspects crucial to being taken seriously as a writer. Not to mention the 800+ grammar and syntax surprises she wrangled out of it. Most of my reviews mention that my book is well-written or well-crafted, and I owe much of that to Amy's skills as an editor.
I'm so glad I hired Amy. Her editing improved both the overall structure and the little details in my manuscript. She added clarity, punch and focus to my book without losing my writing style. Amy's thorough, direct and caring feedback were essential to producing a final product that I'm proud of.
Amy Butcher edited my first crime novel, 'The Dreams that Make Us', and I could not have dreamt of a better editor. She was fantastic. Her calm, positive, efficient and encouraging support and approach was just what was needed. I welcomed her honest opinions and sound advice as she threw herself into the project going beyond the call of duty. However there was a downside. Despite being an English lawyer, I realised on reading Amy's edits just how poor my English actually was!
