Here’s what others say:

Throughout the process, your recommendations and encouragement improved my book and energized me when I was tired of the whole thing! I was privileged to have your high-quality participation in the creation of For the People, Against the Tide. I never would have gotten to the publication of my book without you.” Kathleen Teahan, author, former Massachusetts state legislator.

I’m reading through my manuscript and thinking, this is good. I can see not just what I need to change or add but how you polished some of my sentences. They are beautiful. You’re wonderful, and are making my story everything I hoped it could be. Paula Grandpre Wood, author, The Long Walk Home with the Ceinture Fléchée (the Arrow Sash) To be published 2023

Marjorie is an exceptional editor. I couldn’t be more pleased with her ability to take a draft of my latest novel and suggest revisions, which made it more readable and engaging. She never tried to change my distinct voice in the way I told the story; instead, she took the time to understand what I was trying to accomplish in my fiction before revising it. Not only did she raise the quality of my work, but she also made me a better writer. I enjoyed working with her. Highly recommend Marjorie for your editorial projects. John Murzycki, Author, Elthea’s Realm, series of Science Fantasy novels, Wrentham, MA

“The good news is that I can actually conceive of finishing this round of editing Volume 1. When I’ve completed that round, if not sooner, I will send it to you to read over and help me see areas that need to be summarized, cut or clarified. Then I will need to address what goes into the introductory section.” Lesia Alexander, Heart and Soul with Animals
