“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.)
“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, bestselling author of the Brainrush series
“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, critically acclaimed thriller and young adult author
“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
“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, author of Devil’s Oven and Isabella Moon
“I would not release any written work without Elyse’s critical eye reviewing it first. She corrects every little piece of grammar, punctuation, and 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, author of Okatibbee Creek
“Elyse was with me from day one, editing countless rough drafts of the book, organizing essays, and offering an incredible amount of encouragement, all without ever having met me face to face. I may never have been in the presence of her person, but I have been in the presence of her beautiful spirit.”—Joseph C. Phillips, author of He Talk Like a White Boy
“Elyse has proven to be a valued source in my writing. Her patience, assistance, and advice allow my voice to shine through in a grammatically correct and coherent manner. I have yet to meet an editor as dedicated in her work as Elyse.”—Christian Moralde, playwright, Don’t Call Me Walter!
