Working with David has been a fantastic experience. Not only has he improved my manuscript as a whole, his encouragement and direct approach has developed me as an author too, highlighting traits in my writing that I didn’t know that I had.
His feedback has made me look again at what I have written. Helped me to find better words, have the confidence to add more when required and delete passages that are not. The entire process has opened my eyes and enabled me to make my work the best it can be.
I had expected the edit to be more than just correction of errors because I’d read his testimonials beforehand. But I did not expect to be wanting to improve it further after the process ended. I have taken what David has taught me and found a self-critical eye that I didn’t have before and now I have a piece of work I am very proud of.
To summarise, the experience has been fundamental to my future works. I have already started implementing what I have learnt in book three and every time I put pen to paper from now on I will have his words with me. I hold David in very high esteem. He has joined a very exclusive club indeed.
David Wailing provided a speedy, professional line edit for my novel Road to Rebellion. But my measure of a good line editor includes: Are they willing to discuss the author’s concerns about certain editing conventions? Do they provide suggestions for improving the overall manuscript? Where there are areas of doubt, do they just go ahead and make changes or draw your attention to it by making recommendations? On all these areas David came up trumps, and I will certainly use his services again and would highly recommend it.
