"Elise is thorough with her feedback, I asked for her honesty when it comes to the work being edited and she speaks her mind. She gives suggestions on how sentences should be rephrased, if words are used outside of context she'll spot them. This is my second time working with her and it won't be the last time. I value her input into my books so much."
