“When Ursula @ Owl Pro Editing completed her work on my first novel, which had a lengthy, Joseph Conrad-like style, and gave it back to me, I was barely able to contain myself for having done such a brilliant job as a fiction writer.
I make no claims about handling constructive criticism any better than the average person, but Ursula beautifully edited the cheesy, overreaching portions of my writing, as well as the palatable. Clearly, this is a testament to Ursula’s enduring patience throughout a lengthy process, and for this I am grateful.
Ursula’s heavy sentence-level and substantive editing, and considerable fact checking, are the life’s blood of my current and future ambitions. Who else will dedicate the time toward fully understanding the distinctive style I prefer? Who else will protect my ego as she applies corrections without adding comments like “What the hell were you thinking here?!”? Who else will be so dependable on projects that take months?
Broadcasting Ursula’s copyedit services and how her contributions have greatly exceeded my expectations will lead to competition for her copyedit services, but it’s the right thing to do, and I can’t keep her all to myself.”
