Terry was an incredibly thorough and thoughtful editor. I knew my book was in good hands from the start. It can be intimidating handing over a manuscript but Terry made the process very easy. The feedback he provided I feel went over and above. If I did not understand a particular suggestion, he’d take the time to explain it which was greatly appreciated. The book was most certainly made stronger because of Terry’s editing expertise!
The purpose of an editor is to help the author connect with the intended audience and Terry did that for me. I appreciate the perspective he provided on my latest book project, which was line editing. I’ve worked with other editors in the past and Terry’s method is simpler. Keeping it simple is best, right? He has a calm demeanor, easy to work with, and sets the expectations upfront; no surprises. Terry stays true to the “author’s voice” with any recommended edits. There are a lot of editorial options out there and I’m so pleased to have found Terry!
Terry came highly recommended as editor from a successful author and he exceeded my expectations. While writing my first book, RENTING FROM MY 6-YEAR-OLD, I needed an experienced editor to help make my book a success. Terry not only reviewed the manuscript to ensure the text was accurate but he also ensured the story flowed and engaged the reader as the pages turned. Terry provided thorough and consistent feedback throughout my manuscript. He was able to extract the true meaning of what I was trying to convey but that was not already clear in my writing. At times he suggested pinpointed revisions and others he offered alternatives for wording options. I really appreciate Terry’s editing services for my book and have received consistent positive feedback not only on the story but also on the flow of the book. I credit that to Terry’s meticulous and thoughtful approach. Terry provided feedback on the agreed upon schedule and his comments were easy to understand and incorporate into my manuscript. I appreciated Terry’s calm demeanor throughout the writing and editing process. I unequivocally recommend Terry for your next project. I look forward to working again with Terry on my next book.
As a new author I did not have a ton of editing services on my list of contacts. I was fortunate enough, though, to have a group of experienced authors who were willing to help me find the best. Overwhelmingly, the authors I spoke to both used and recommended Terry Stafford. I knew that I had found a quality editor the minute he sample edited a portion of my manuscript. I am still impressed with his attention to detail that resulted in the edits he suggested. He made my writing so much cleaner and professional, I am grateful for his absolute expertise. I completely endorse and recommend his service to both new and seasoned writers.
