Clients and Commendations
'Belinda's level of expertise and professionalism is praiseworthy; she is a highly skilled editor and an absolute favourite amongst our authors.'
Julia Knapman, Publishing Assistant, Escape Publishing
'I was thrilled with Belinda's work on my novella. I found her to be professional, reliable, and able to build up a rapport with me as a writer and understand what I was trying to achieve in my work. I also valued her insights in more technical issues specific to writing historical fiction. Belinda has since gone on to edit two of my novels and I look forward to working with her again in the future.'
Lena Dowling, author - Historical and Contemporary Romance
I've worked with Belinda on two of my novels, The January Wish and February or Forever, and the editing process for both was fun, thorough, and incredibly valuable. Belinda has a great eye for detail and consistency, and went above and beyond what I expected. She doesn't just correct grammar and style, but picks up on character inconsistencies, word repetition, plot issues, and anything else that could impact on the maximum enjoyment of the story by the reader. She also enhances her professional capabilities with her friendly, respectful, and timely communication. Most of all, she helped make my books shine, and made the process enjoyable. I look forward to working with Belinda again!

Belinda worked with me editing my first novel, Tearing the Shroud, for Escape Publishing. Her insight helped to take the story to new levels, added more depth. She was clear in her suggestions and right on track. My novel would not be what it is without her and I'll seek out her talents on subsequent projects.

With twelve books published and four publishers, I've worked with about eight editors. My New York publisher Avalon had very experienced, excellent in-house editors and Belinda ranks right up there with the best of them. She's very good at spotting areas that need more emotional depth, or characters who need their motivation explained more clearly. If punctuation or grammar is questionable she instigates a discussion instead of wielding a vicious red pen, and she is very careful not to tamper with an author's voice. Working with her was a delightful experience and one I hope to repeat.
