"I love working with Claire! Her attention to detail is second to none! I’ve trusted her with the majority of my catalog (including a massive seven book series with hundreds of eagle-eyed readers) and she never ceases to amaze me with her sharp eye, detailed notes and blazing fast turn around times. Whenever one of my readers contacts me thanking me for taking the time to edit my work properly it’s always a book that started in Claire’s hands and came back ten times better. I couldn’t recommend her services enough, she’ll make you a better, stronger writer and is worth her weight in gold!"
R.G. Corr - Author of the Haywater Series
"I needed an editor to come to my rescue in 2016 and Claire did just that. I trust her implicitly with my manuscripts. Claire is professional, precise, always works within timescales set (yet has allowed flexibility when I've not been as organised) and leaves me with a beautifully polished manuscript."
Victoria L James - Romance & MC Author of the Natexus and Babylon Series
"It's always nerve-wracking handing over your work to someone else, especially when you're basically asking them to read it with a fault finding eye. For me, as a first-time writer, I was exceptionally nervous. It takes a special skill for someone to be able to guide you on how to improve your work, without crushing the spirit of the writer or stripping away the essence of the novel. Claire definitely has that skill in abundance. I know that when I give her something to edit, it's going to be done with a professional mindset and a ridiculous, microscopic eye for detail. Things I had missed, even after reading the same paragraph for what felt like a million times, Claire was able to pick up on. My story now feels tighter, cleaner, but a heck of a lot longer thanks to her convincing me to give it the attention and time it deserved, by turning it from a novella into a novel.
Her sense of humour helps you through some of the trickier aspects of editing, whilst her encouragement for the things she really enjoys about your work gives you the drive to keep moving forward.
I would recommend her to anyone that would listen. In fact, I think I already have."
LJ Stock - Multi-Genre Author
"Writing a novel, you put your heart and soul into your work. You push yourself to limits and dig deep into the depths of you to find the characters and give them the passion you yourself feel about them. Then, when you're finished you sit back and pick it apart. That's where these ladies help the most. When you're too close to a project, you can't tell your ass from your elbow, but after asking Claire to take over, I saw problems I never
would have seen otherwise.
The comments, insights, punctuation and grammar were invaluable. Being as close as I was to the project, there were things I didn't necessarily put together, there were also questions that I as an author knew the answer to, but the reader wouldn't. After sending the manuscript away, it was returned quickly with the comments neatly listed in the file, making it easy to work with."
I can't thank them enough for helping make something I'd worked so hard on better, and I would recommend them to anyone who would listen."
Harper Phoenix - Paranormal Romance Author of The Stonepack Series
"I have used BNW Editing services since I began my writing adventure! I had been told horror stories about the whole process. But having been highly recomended, I approached Claire. I was new and wasn't sure what to do. Claire coached me all the way through with what she would do and how I was to go through it afterward. The entire process from start to finish has been stress-free for me and I am now on my fifth book with Claire as my editor. She is a pleasure to work with and I have yet to come across a single correction that I don't agree with! I cannot recommend her enough!"
Aria Michaels - YA Dystopian Author of the Killshot Series
"This woman....this amazing, patient, BRILLIANT woman is by far the most wonderful and dedicated (not to mention forgiving...lol) editor/comma-nazi a girl could ask for. In addition to having an amazing eye for detail and one hell of an appreciation for the written word, she is also a supportive and loving partner in crime. Much of the growth I have experienced as an author has been due to her nurturing hand."
Melissa McClone - USA Today Bestselling HEA Author
"I can't say enough wonderful things about Claire and her amazing editing/proofreading skills. We've worked together on both novellas and novels. She'll find things that everyone before her missed. And not just typos! I'm so grateful to be working with her. I've published many books, but Claire was the first to tell me why something needed to be corrected. Grammar has never been a strength of mine, and Claire has patiently taught me so much and improved my writing! My books are better because of her. If you're looking for someone who is professional, precise, and a total sweetheart, I recommend Claire. And I hope you love her as much as I do!"
Michele Wesley - Multi-Genre Author
"Having Claire Allmendinger edit my work has been a wonderful experience. Her keen eye catches grammatical errors, missing words, inconsistencies with dialogue and plot, and a number of other problems that I may have missed or simply don’t know. She adds insightful comments and suggestions that improve my storylines, characters, and the flow of my novels. In addition, she offers a second round of editing that I believe is invaluable to shaping my manuscript into the best that it can be. Claire’s editing style adds great value to my work, and I can foresee us having a lasting editor-writer relationship."
