I have been nothing but impressed with Kat Harvey's editorial prowess. She helped make my story the best it could be; let her do the same for you!

A.J. Laken,  BSFA nominated author of One Cog Turning with Luna Press Publishing. Genre: Steampunk Fantasy

The edit was brilliant and picked up on all those things that slip past you when you become totally embroiled in your own work. The formatting skills and consistency you brought to the process will make for a sharper, punchier novel. Oh and thanks for the advice on genre and pace.

Brian Ledsom, author of Back of Beyond. Genre: Cultural Realism/Contemporary Crime

An enormous thank you and wholehearted appreciation must go to my editor, Kat Harvey of Athena Copy, a member of the Edinburgh Editors’ Network and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. I know she will be embarrassed by me saying this, but: I cannot thank you enough for the work you have put in, in making my dream of completing and publishing this book come true. Without your professional eye for spotting my, all too frequent, errors, your advice and your questioning of the parts, which if they had been left, would have confused the reader, this book may never have been ready to face my discerning readership. Your command of the English language has brought my combined work of painting and writing together. I will be forever grateful.

Hiram Dunn, author of Borderers in Uniform from 1689. Genre: Military History

I'm really happy with what you've done and can't find anything I disagree with. I was worried that the voices would be watered down, but it still feels like my work, minus the mistakes!

Ruth Thomas, author. Genre: Cultural Realism/Contemporary Crime

‘Thanks’ is inadequate for what you’ve done – you’ve transformed and polished this work and Basil himself would have also been full of approval and admiration!

Sigi Goolden, independent author. Genre: Memoir/Biography
