“I don’t think I would have actually finished and completed any of my writing without coaching from Cheryl.
She helped me go from broad stroke characters and ideas to a specific set of story beats that made others want to read my writing.”
“The beta reader included a partial line edit which was actually more helpful than the questionnaire because it was more specific. I also appreciate the reader’s enthusiasm and her engagement with the manuscript. I don’t think she’s necessarily the target audience for my book, which is more like Neal Stephenson’s, but she did point out some problems that I hadn’t noticed.”
“Clearly an expert in her field, and one whose highly knowledgeable, observant, proactive, and forever asking the salient questions, I highly, highly recommend Cheryl’s services, to help with your writing needs.”
“Cheryl was very patient with me and asked several questions to assess my knowledge and then geared our time together efficiently so as to assist me in my quest to become a better writer. I will be using Cheryl’s expertise going forward.”
“She is a pleasure to work with, observant, practical, honest, clever, informative and kind, and thoroughly communicative and professional every step of the way. An A++ seller whom I highly, highly recommend.”
“She responded to my initial chat right away and talked with me to figure out what I was looking for, then went above and beyond to make sure I understood all her feedback. Will definitely use her again!”
“I have never had a professional edit my work, and needless to say, I did not know what to expect. I was pleased to discover that the process was both simple and affordable. Best of all, she took my stylistic choices into consideration and kept the integrity of the story completely intact. I think my search for a dependable editor ends here. Thank you Cheryl!”
“I used Ink Slinger Editorial Services for a beta read of my YA novel and I am super impressed. The feedback and questionnaire I received were very thorough and useful. Thanks, Melissa! Aside from that, the process of sending over, paying, and picking up my manuscript was very simple and efficient. I look forward to using their services again.
“I nicknamed Cheryl the LSE® (Long-suffering Editrix) early in our project. And she was. She walked me through outlining my series and my first book, helping me to understand where I made mistakes, with patience and kindness that I know I didn’t always deserve. I still don’t know how she did that! When we got to line edits, she was ruthless. I needed that. It made me better. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t agree with a lot of things I hold dear, but that doesn’t matter. She’s intent on helping me express what I want to say clearly. I am privileged to call her not only my editor but my friend. Yes, she’s worth it.”
“I was very apprehensive at first but Ink_slinger_es talked to me beforehand, so I knew what I was getting, and they delivered so much more, by providing me with lots of resources to check out. Great experience!”
“I decided to use a couple pieces of flash fiction to interview a few editors for my upcoming book Fragmented Past. Cheryl was awesome! She not only caught the errors, but her suggestions really made me think. She encourages me to dig deeper into my characters and is teaching me how to give my scenes even more life. I am excited to have her as a part of my self-publishing team!”
“if you really want her to give an honest opinion of your work grab this cookie.. tough on the outside but tasty inside…had she not asked some though questions about my work I would not have known what my genre is about.. still exploring… awsm resources… all at just one place…”
“Cheryl is absolutely amazing, especially when I need short works edited. Not many editors will edit short stories or even flash fiction, but Cheryl does it all. She’s a life saver when I need quick work done, and her prices are more than reasonable. Thank you, Cheryl for everything!”
“Working with Cheryl has been an invaluable experience from start to finish. She is quick to respond to any inquiries, and extremely clear, concise, and thorough in her work. I only wish I would have used her editing services sooner.”
“I went into self-pubbing a complete babe in the woods, and formatting was an absolute nightmare. When I finally made enough money to actually have a budget for my work, I went after a professional formatter and found Cheryl on Kindleboards. She not only reformatted both of my books for all the retailers, she put in a Table of Contents – something I didn’t dare to try on my own – and made great suggestions I never would have thought of. And most importantly, she answered all my stupid questions with patience and humor. Best money spent EVER!
Thank you Cheryl – can’t wait to work with you again.”
“I’m definitely taking all of your instruction to heart. Every great author (or one aspiring to be great) needs a good kick in the butt every now and then. I’m so thankful I ran into you. I’m actually a little peeved that it took this long to get such great advice. Just goes to show the importance of finding the right person for a job. I’m hopeful that you’ll be editing my books for years to come. 🙂”
