⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Julie was so generous with sharing her vast knowledge

Julie has been nothing but professional, creative and fair priced in her work. She came up with a wonderful, and intriguing book art cover before we sat down to discuss ideas. It was right on. So easy to work with, and such a pleasure as well. This being my first publication Julie guided me patiently and was so generous with sharing her vast knowledge of publishing. I look forward to doing my sequels with her. Thank you Julie!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent!

Excellent. Highly recommended. Ms Forester could be charging more for the service that she provides.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I felt I was part of the process

Friendly and supportive. I opted for the "Try me first," offer. The feedback was helpful and honest. Julie thought that my book needed further work before copy-editing. This news stung, at first, but it helped me to understand that the process of editing is more complicated and multi-layered than I realized. It also showed me she wasn't going to just take my money for a quick buck!

After the input from friends and beta readers, I resubmitted my book a few weeks later. Julie was, again, very helpful and supportive. I liked that she sent me back the chapters as draft edits so that I could make comments or ask if there where things that I wanted explained or altered. I felt I was part of the process right up until receiving the the final, finished copy at the end.

Absolutely LOVE my ebook cover too!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The artwork is exactly on point

Thank you. A very supportive service. Julie goes out of her way to make everything as easy as possible. The formatting looks good and I adore my cover. The artwork is exactly on point for my (soon to be released) thriller. Her prices are very fair for the excellent service she offers. I will certainly be back with my next book.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Friendly, efficient, easy to work with

Julie designed the cover of my novel and I was very happy with her work and the finished design. She is friendly, efficient, easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ You can expect from Julie both a voice and a ready ear

I certainly would recommend. As well as a scrupulous and swift reading of my text, Julie maintained contact with me every time I needed it, and at times when I did not realise I needed it. I was particularly grateful for her firm but careful observations on paragraphing and structure, as well as ensuring that the general thrust of the book was maintained. You can expect from Julie both a voice and a ready ear: she is always ready to exchange views and observations, having a clear policy herself while acknowledging - after discussion - that the ultimate authority lies, naturally, with the author.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It seems that nothing is too much trouble

I agree with all the comments on here. It seems that nothing is too much trouble. It was a genuine pleasure working with Julie. She was so helpful and patient with all my weird and wonderful questions. My next task is to get her to do the cover and editing for my next book.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is what pulls you out of the pack and sets you above other editors.

Aiming to involve the author in the process, with some kind of growth and learning for the them is what pulls you out of the pack and sets you above other editors. The end product is important to you as well as leaving the author with helpful knowledge! I commend you! I like this analysis and the comments. This is a an added business feature you offer. Very sharp. Well done! I like the extra time you take to delve in and THEN explain. Brilliant!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 10/10 recommend

Julie is friendly, flexible, very accommodating and very easy to work with. I've recommended her to other authors. It's super-helpful that she has the ability to cover all three aspects of the publishing process. She did the editing, formatting and proofread my story and she totally interpreted the vision for the book cover. She even took time to send me some super-helpful notes to help with my character point of view. Skilled and talented. Thank you.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ a great mix of humor and professionlism in her approach

A positive experience. Julie has a great mix of humor and professionalism in her approach. She totally understood the flavor of my "friends-to-lovers" story, and she tidied up my (numerous) scrappy, long-winded sentences, and offered some great alternative words and descriptions. I hadn't even realized I was missing commas in speech until now. (HAHA!) I would 100% recommend.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I wish I'd found Julie sooner

Great value for money. Efficient, friendly, and accomodating. Her "try me first" offer was the hook that drew me in. MY ONLY COMPLAINT? I wish I'd found Julie sooner for my first three books!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My previous experience with editing was not like this.

Your thorough and detailed editing -- surely many of your comments touched on developmental and proof editing? -- was so helpful. The time and feedback you gave was more than "just" copyediting. The extra touches of personalised advice and support was excellent. Over and above. My previous "conveyor belt" experience of working with an editor was not like this. I'm certainly not complaining, but your prices can't match your input time?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I recommend trying Julie's sample edit first.

Definitely try Julie's sample edit first. It was this that helped me to decide she was right for me and my book. For me, it was important to have an editor that would empathise with my lesfic genre. She gave me such a lot of helpful advice and tips to improve my writing that it felt like a masterclass.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Acknowledgement (inside book cover):

The editor is the gas for your car, the milk in your milkshake, and that most important final ingredient. Lots of frustration and tears are shed, but the product in the end will shine.

There are times you are fortunate enough to stumble upon someone with the skills you require to succeed. To my cover artist, editor, author par excellence, and friend, Julie Forester. We’ve done it again! Thank you for giving me numerous suggestions, and fixing my countless commas, listening to my fears and accomplishments, and encouraging me. The patience you continue to show me and the countless offers of assistance leave me so grateful and appreciative, and for teaching me that ‘authors do help authors.’ There is true blood and tears in putting together a book and polishing it. Thank you, Julie, for that extra shine.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is my second book with Julie

It's 100% recommend from me. Julie has knowledge, skill and patience in abundance. She made the experience enjoyable, and I've learned so much from her expertise. She was critically positive with her comments and her edits made my stories so much more polished and well orgnised than when I handed them over. My third book is headed her way.

Julie edited and formatted two of my books. This recommendation adds in agreement to the other reviews on her website. She has been consistently supportive and accommodating. I didn't feel pushed or rushed - which was important to me.

Julie's (numerous!) comments and critical assessment of my draft manuscript were quite an eye-opener, and l've improved on my own writing thanks to this.

For sure, by the time I'd gotten sent my finished copies, Julie had covered way more than copyediting. 

My next manuscript is already in her inbox. ;)
