“I contacted Catherine Dunn through an author website. Working with her has been a great experience. I needed an editor to do the copyediting of the four volumes of a long science-fiction novel. Her professionalism and dedication are remarkable. I particularly enjoyed her explanations about punctuation and our exchanges about other matters concerning the novels. I can’t wait to ask her help for future work.” — Jennie Dorny (Hybrids)
“I came across Help for Writers through an advert and, having spoken to Catherine Dunn on the phone, found her both helpful and professional. Catherine was very clear about the copy-editing process – and also how she could help with the entire process from writing, editing, through to distribution and marketing. I particularly value Catherine’s approach to outlining the process, meeting agreed deadlines and working with me to develop a finished product. It’s important to me that she gets my humour and understands my characters. I am delighted to be able to continue working with Catherine and we’re about to embark on my fourth novel together.” — Lisa Stewart (Knitting Haggis, Being Gil’s Sister, Soup is the New Coffee)
“Catherine Dunn is a skilled, diligent and exceptional proof editor. I would highly recommend her for your writing projects.” — RK Law (The Sagalands series)
“Big thanks to you Catherine for being my editor when I urgently needed one and for not only all your time, thoroughness and dedication, but for your consistent correspondence, your approachability and, last but never least – your fantastic encouragement throughout when I was genuinely afraid nobody would like the manuscript. It’s done me a world of good. Very likely I’d never have managed to finally publish my book without you; you’ve helped make a dream come true. Looking forward to working with you again very soon!” — RH Hale (Church Mouse: Memoir of a vampire’s servant)
“We love working with Catherine! She provides consistently high quality work and her keen eye has truly elevated the quality and level of polish of our manuscripts. In an ever-changing, very competitive industry, it’s important for us to have a reliable, highly responsive copy-editor who can deliver a final manuscript in a timely manner. We are very pleased with the results and will continue to use Help For Writers for our editing needs.” — Andrew Wilson, Sea Otter Publishing
“Like how you had labeled everything and made it clear. And great to find a copywriter happy to edit a coded page.” — Dan Walker, LE1 Internet Marketing
