“Tighter, clearer, with sparkle and shine”

Joanne has edited two books for me, the first two instalments in my dark fantasy series. I was constantly amazed at the observations she provided that seemed so clear after she made them, but which I hadn’t seen in multiple rewrites. These were not simply cosmetic (though here as well Joanne really helped to polish my prose); they were structural.

Joanne brought deep analysis to the work. She could see where a character said something out of line, or a scene happened out of sync, or an element of the plot was left free-standing and floating in the wind. Joanne brought everything together tighter, clearer, and with sparkle and shine. I would highly recommend her to any author in need of a top-class editor. — Douglas Bain, The Race to the Blackened Nevers
