Some of My Happy Clients
I’ve worked in publishing since 1999, and I’ve been serving, supporting, and coaching writers through Nomad Editorial since 2005. I’m thrilled and honored to have so many satisfied clients who keep coming back and who generously recommend me to others!
I’m terrible at editing my own work—in fact, I believe everyone is because we are too close to our own words. So even though I had three beta readers for my book, I knew I needed to have a professional edit the book line by line to capture any small errors (or even big ones). Amy did just that! She found all the little mistakes, and she commented on some developmental issues that neither I nor my beta readers had caught. I believe my book is 100% better because of Amy’s keen insight and skills. If you’re on the fence about whether you need a copy editor for your book, trust me: you do! Your readers and I would bet your book sales will thank you for it.
—Michelle Mazur, author of The 3 Word Rebellion
As a consultant, I expect the highest quality, and Amy exceeded my expectations. She was easy to work with and her editing and suggestions took my writing to the next level of excellence.
—Kerry Wekelo, author of Culture Infusion
The best decision I made in writing my book was hiring Amy to edit it! Amy’s depth of thinking into my subject matter really amazed me—she’s not a farmer, yet she embraced the subject, understood what I was saying, and seemed comfortable with the unique terminology I was using. Amy did a wonderful job, and my book came out so much better than I expected. I now tell everyone who is writing a book to budget for an editor and call Amy!
—Charlotte Smith, author of Farm Marketing from the Heart
Without Amy, my book probably would have never seen the light of day. Her copyediting helped polish and fine-tune the text and she blew me away with her insights. I know I will turn to her again in the future.
—Jenna Christina, author of Unposed Baby Photography
—Tara Gentile, author of Quiet Power Strategy
—Hilary Silver, therapist and relationship coach
Working with Amy allowed me to just write, knowing she would have my back as far as editing was concerned. I was very happy with her professionalism and work ethic. She delivered when she said she would and was very easy to work with.
—Brenda Braxton, author of The Little Black Book of Backstage Etiquette
Warning: there’s a lot of work to writing a real book! But hiring Amy to do the copyediting meant that she did all the heavy lifting to clean up and finalize the content.
It was really a pleasure working with someone of Amy’s caliber and timeliness! If you want your writing to become a work of art and something you’re proud to be the author of, you really need Amy.
—Michael Huffman, author of Zen Skin Care
—Carrie Greene, author of Because You’re Worth It: How to Make More Money by Charging More Money
—Natasha Vorompiova, systems coach and author of Asana for Small Business
I realize some authors are afraid an editor will alter their voice or style, and Amy absolutely did not. The cost of hiring an editor isn’t pocket change, but Amy’s guidance was irreplaceable and worth every penny. I will hire her again in a heartbeat.
—Jami Rodman, author of The Las Vegas Madam: The Escorts, the Clients, the Truth
—Kelly Alexander, author of My Year Off Men
—William “Frank” Villanueva, PhD, MBA
I cannot recommend Amy highly enough. Not only is she a knowledgeable and perfectionist editor (and you really want that), she is a joy to work with. If you don’t have an editor yet, hire Amy. You won’t regret it.
—Pernille Norregaard, writing coach and ghostwriter
I feel confident that my proposal is more powerful now than it was before I hired Amy. Amy is smart and a total professional; she gets the work delivered when she says she will, and gives more than you expected so that your materials are polished and cohesive.
—Mercedes Maidana, motivational speaker, writer, and abundance coach
—Janis Bowersox, author of So You Want to Open a Yoga Studio
—Yiye Zhang, six-sensory spiritual teacher, business & life coach
—Anastasia Valentine, CEO, chief strategist & positive instigator, ANVIVA International
—Shay de Silva, founder, Fast Fitness to Go
—Natalie Hill, The Sacred Business Coach
The emotion and poignancy were still there, but where my thoughts had flown from my head to the paper in a constant stream, they were now subtly structured and organised for ease of reading by someone who hadn’t lived my life and couldn’t fill in the gaps themselves. Thanks to Amy’s input, when I sent my manuscript to a publisher I was much more confident in the response I would get even as a first-time author. All our work paid off, and my book was published by Action Deafness Books!
—Tamsin Coates, author of Meanwhile I Keep Dancing
Amy has experience in traditional publishing but also embraces the digital world with curiosity and enthusiasm. She helped me solve problems as I navigated the many complicated issues around editing and preparing a manuscript for both print and e-book formats. I highly recommend Amy, and she will be my first choice to edit my work in the future. She is simply a delight to work with, and hiring Amy was the best decision I made for my self-published book.
—Jean-Christie Ashmore, author and indie publisher of Camino de Santiago: To Walk Far, Carry Less
I’m not a professional writer; my expertise is in building collaborative teams. While I needed my writing to be clear, I also wanted to preserve my unique style, and Amy was able to strike that perfect balance. I plan to work with Amy again and I highly recommend her for any editing job. She is at the top of her game.
—Robert Donaldson, owner, Collaborative Strategies
