"I have been working on this manuscript off and on for years and couldn't put my finger on what was wrong. She nailed all of it! After I read the edits, I thought 'Yes, that's what it needs!' Editing went so well after the feedback. I appreciated it so much. The manuscript is much richer, and I think it flows better. She did an excellent job!"
"Your suggestions were amazing! I can't express how grateful I am! I know the work you've done will help me greatly. I am positive I have more growing to do, but your edits make a lot of sense, and I am making great progress. I did my best to absorb everything you told me. I attended a virtual writing conference, and was able to pitch to two publishers. They both asked for the entire book!"

"September is amazing. Seriously, she is not only incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, but very insightful. I've been struggling with my steadfast/flat-arc protagonist for years, thinking I was doing something wrong with her, but September explaining why (and how!) she's an innately tricky character to write has everything making a lot more sense now! September answered questions I didn't even know how to ask! Her encouragement and insight are so helpful and motivating! She definitely understands where I'm at and what I'm trying to do."
"After only a very quick read-through of the critique, I could tell it was already helpful. It has so much in it that I can work on. I could share all the great insights September provided, but then I’d just be rewriting the critique. I appreciate her thorough feedback, and I know the story is going to be stronger."
"I absolutely loved working with September. Trusting an editor with your story is a big commitment, but September’s insights and efforts, along with her ability to teach and relay story concepts, easily made doing so with her one of the best decisions I’ve made in my writing journey. She genuinely cares for her clients and their work, and it truly shows in how she works with her clients to deliver better stories. I want the book she edited for me to change my life. Working with her has given me the knowledge and skills to refine my story into something that I’m confident will. I shared my experience with September with my writing group, and they were so impressed many have decided to use her as well."

"I haven’t had another editor think through a story as in depth as September. I love her close attention to detail. It really helps strengthen the story. I have thoroughly enjoyed and greatly benefitted from her advice, and I can already see my story becoming so much better because of it. I’m so grateful for her help on my project, and I greatly value her thoughts and recommendations. I’m super excited to take this story to the next level. I hope to have many more projects we will do together."
