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!

I have used BNWediting services since I began my writing adventure! I had been told horror stories about the whole process. But having been highly reccomended, 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!

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.

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 in to 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.
