Testimonials

“I have known Paul's work and worked with him on a number of projects over the years. He knows what it takes to make a book work, and for that book to be competitive in the publishing world. His experience, skill, and knowledge are vast. I absolutely recommend him.”

Laurie Harper, AuthorBiz Consulting,


"I feel very fortunate to have found an editor with your knowledge, talent, and commitment. I have learned a lot from your informative critiques and comments and benefited greatly from your perceptive copy editing. I deeply appreciate the obvious hard work you’ve done to help me improve my writing. You always seem to know just what needs to be fixed. I can't imagine what I'd have done without your help during the process of revising my novel and finding an agent to represent it. I attribute much of my success in signing with a New York literary agency to your editing of my manuscript and assistance with the synopsis and query letter.

I really appreciate all the great work you've done on my behalf and all your words of confirmation and encouragement. Without your contributions and your support, I doubt that the publication of my first novel, VOLK’S GAME (Henry Holt & Co.), would have become a reality. I also thank you for your insights and your same high caliber of editing on the first draft of my second novel for Holt, titled VOLK’S SHADOW."

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Paul as an editor, and an extremely competent one at that. He was very helpful in guiding me through the publication process of my book. Additionally, he went above and beyond in assisting me in resolving the many inevitable problems that arise in the publication of a book. I don’t know how I could have done it without him, and I am most happy to highly recommend him as a competent, honorable and empathetic editor.”
