“Elyse is an essential member of my team. I wouldn’t think of publishing anything she hasn’t checked over first, because without her, I’d look like an idiot. Elyse is, quite simply, invaluable to my work.”—Brett Battles, Barry Award-winning author of the Jonathan Quinn, Logan Harper, and Project Eden thrillers (Brett interviewed me for Murderati here)

“I had some writing problems I couldn’t crack and Elyse came to the rescue. She is smart, perceptive, and she really knows books. Her notes were clear, insightful, and most of all, specific. No waffling generalizations, just executable answers. Mind you, Elyse didn’t try to change my book; she helped me write a better version of it. I highly recommend her services. You won’t do better.”—Joe Ide, Shamus, Macavity, and Anthony Award-winning author of the IQ series

“The depth of Elyse’s research and attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. Editing is a mysterious and crucial art that only a few can master. Now I know why she’s known as the Edit Ninja.”—Richard Bard, Amazon bestselling author of the Brainrush series

“I never had a moment’s hesitation about sending my work off to Elyse for editing. From our first correspondence, I could tell she had great love and respect for the written word and would do a wonderful job. She worked closely with me on a schedule, and delivered my novel back to me in terrific shape. Elyse is the best!”—Laura Benedict, Edgar and Thriller Award-nominated author of The Stranger Inside

“Elyse has that rare quality to see small details, yet ‘get’ the whole picture. Her insights helped shape my project and provide punch for my readers. The quality of her editing style gave me the safety net (beyond my publisher’s editors) that I needed to self-publish for the first time. I highly recommend her. She’s my go-to girl.”—Jordan Dane, award-winning thriller and YA author

“Elyse is a consummate professional. She delivers a consistently edited manuscript, complete with comments and questions, either on or before the mutually decided deadline. You’ll feel safe with her discerning eye and ninja pen! I know I did.”—Naomi Hirahara, Edgar Award winner and small-press publisher

“Working with Elyse has been a pleasure. She saved my bacon on my latest book by pointing out a consistent grammatical problem I fall victim to that was never once mentioned by the fifteen copy editors I’ve previously worked with throughout my career. Her attention to detail is unrivaled.”—Robert Gregory Browne, Nicholl Fellow and author of Kiss Her Goodbye and Trial Junkies

“I’ve worked with dozens of editors during the past 20 years and Elyse is the best of them all. Her skill set is stunning: perfect grammar, punctuation and syntax, fact-checking, a firm hand with tone and style, all with an eye on the bigger picture of the story itself. She’s a developmental editor, line editor, copyeditor, and proofreader all in one. How does she do it all? I have no idea. I’m just so glad she’s doing it for me.”—Aaron Driver, journalist and author of the upcoming thriller What Dead Men See

“In preparation of my first book, I wanted to do everything possible to make it the best it could be. After doing my due diligence to find a professional editor, which included consulting other published authors, I decided to use Elyse’s services and I’m so glad I did. Not only did she give me top-notch proofreading and editing, she went well beyond the call of duty and gave me numerous extra comments and suggestions to take my book to another level. I’m almost reluctant to tell my author friends about her exceptional services because I’m sure they’ll hire her and she won’t have time to work on my next project.”—Stephen Buehler, the ReWrite Doctor and author of Detective Rules

“If you’re reading this because you’re sitting on the fence about contracting Elyse to edit your work, I suggest you take the leap of faith and jump deep into the green clover of her vast knowledge and skill. I wrote a book on writing skills and she took me to school on my own information. She’s brilliant. She knows her stuff when it comes to grammar, punctuation, syntax, and formatting. Plus, she looks up all your info and facts to make sure you don’t embarrass yourself on the page. Do not hesitate. Swallow your ego and use Elyse to hone and refine your work. Pssst! Don’t tell her that I said she’s worth twice what she charges.”—John Winston Rainey, author of Screenwriting Style That Sizzles

“Elyse has a gift for finding mistakes and correcting unintentional errors, large and small. She found typos and a number of mistakes that my previous FIVE beta readers and I had all missed. Incredible, really. Her attention to detail is simply unsurpassed. On top of that, she was fast and fun to work with. I recommend Elyse with zero hesitation. She not only made my manuscript better, she made it ready to go to market! Hire her, you won’t be sorry.”—James Lavish, author of the upcoming thriller Spy War

“I would not release any written work without Elyse’s critical eye reviewing it first. She corrects every little error, whether it’s in grammar, punctuation, or tense, and transforms my jumbled, choppy sentences into clear and concise prose. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her to everyone. Thank you, Elyse. You are invaluable to me.”—Lori Crane, award-winning author of Okatibbee Creek

“Elyse has edited two of my efforts, a short story and a thriller, and I have to say she is excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending her to any writer who is seeking a professional, comprehensive edit. I have learned a lot about writing as a result of Elyse’s editing help. Would I utilize Elyse’s editing expertise again? Absolutely.”—John Hindmarsh, author of the Glass Complex trilogy and Midway series

“Elyse has proven to be a valued source in my writing. Her patience, assistance, and advice allow my voice to shine through in a coherent manner. I have yet to meet an editor as dedicated in her work as Elyse.”—Christian Moralde, playwright, Don’t Call Me Walter!
