My friend (a journalist) has looked at your corrections and you haven't missed out on a single mistake. Very few copyeditors have this level of skill and attention to details. Lei Wang http://www.paynoadvertising.com ________________________________________ May 2009 I would like to thank Janis Holmberg for her editing of this third edition. She unselfishly gave of her time and talents to make this copy readable. You can find her on her website, www.persuasivepen.com if you ever find yourself in need of a great editor. Father Paul Edwards The Spiritual Intelligence Handbook http://www.fr-paul.org/template_pages/spiritual%20Intelligence.html ________________________________________ July 2005 I have never been more satisfied with editing than I am with your refined descriptions of ancient Korean culture and archaeology for the display panels at the National Museum of Korea. I knew you were a real professional from seeing the examples on your Web site. But wow... your work is really wonderful! Joon-Young Park, translator ________________________________________ May 2002 Great article in the latest issue of Interface Tech News, www.interfacenow.com on “Positioning for Mergers & Acquisitions.” I don't know your background, but I am always impressed when a reporter masters a technical subject well enough to “get it right.” It appears to me that you did. I am an M&A advisor/business broker in Portland, Maine, with 22 years experience, so I guess I would know. Sincerely, Glen Cooper, CBA, BVAL Certified Business Appraiser Business Valuator Accredited for Litigation President, Maine Business Brokers' Network Web site: www.bizbuysell.com ________________________________________ In March 2001, Wendy Belcher, cochair of UCLA Campus Editors and Writers, recommended me as a copyeditor after passing what she named “an extremely grueling copyediting test—a real-life, twenty-five page academic essay in the humanities. Very few people who took the test passed. Those who took it were scored in three areas: technical editing (correcting grammar and spelling errors); style editing (putting manuscripts into the Chicago Manual of Style); and substantive editing (improving clarity, diction, and logic). Janis Holmberg has a good grasp of the Chicago Manual of Style and is a good technical editor. Her real strength is substantive editing, where she does an excellent job of improving diction, clarity, and logic.” Wendy Belcher info@wendybelcher.com ________________________________________ December 2002 Dreams do come true. I have been accepted at Harvard and I am sooo... excited about it. I really appreciate your help with the essays and in answering my questions related to application process. Harvard was my first application and I was so confused while writing the essays and trying to publish my autobiography in 300-word nuggets. It was really amazing to see you effortlessly refining my thought process and later editing my essays and work experience details such that the final package did reflect all my strengths and achievements and established the fact that my move to Harvard is the only logical next step. Although I completely believe in my own capabilities, I could not have convinced Harvard Adcom about them without your help...that I am sure of. Successful Harvard MBA applicant ________________________________________ November 2001 I want to thank you warmly for your excellent and insightful comments. This was my first time working with an editor and now I understand why published work looks so good! It may have taken a few gos for me to get it right, but it was certainly a worthwhile learning process and I will keep your perspective in mind when writing future material. It was a pleasure working with you Sophia Isako Wong (then) Ph.D. candidate, Department of Philosophy, Columbia University
