“Hiring you has been the single best decision I’ve made with this novel yet. You caught things that just never dawned on me, and probably wouldn’t have. I’m going to implement every piece of advice you gave me; all in all, I couldn’t be more pleased. You say on your web site that you’ll make an author’s words sparkle, and you’re not kidding. Are you worth the money?—I think you’re probably worth more! You’re one of the most personable, professional, and understanding people I’ve ever worked with. Hands down, this was the best investment I’ve made. Thank you so much for an outstanding job.”

“Arlene, I am amazed at your insightfulness, which allows you to bring clarity to the areas of the story that had me frustrated while writing them. You are a kind of literary psychoanalyst, and I’m glad you had the chance to ‘couch’ my manuscript. I am having no difficulty reading and understanding your edits. I just can’t wait to get on to the next chapters and report back to you on them all.”

“Arlene, you found mistakes that I and six people who reviewed the manuscript missed. I’m pretty good at paying attention to detail, but you, Arlene, are amazing! As I reviewed your changes I found myself saying, ‘how did I miss that?’ I appreciate the comments and explanations that you included. They helped me understand your changes and I also learned from them. The comments I wasn’t thrilled to see were ones like, ‘Can you explain this more effectively?’ But I know that they are the most important comments and, since they are from you, I know to take them seriously. And I am. Thank you.”

“Arlene did a great job of editing my book Live Your Dreams—Let Reality Catch Up. Many readers have remarked on how easy it is to read. When I decided to write my most recent book, Parents’ Handbook, one of my first steps was to secure Arlene’s editing help, even though I would not be ready for about five months. Arlene has lived up to my expectations and then some. She is thorough, knows her work, and is not afraid to challenge you on what you have written. Thanks Arlene, I appreciate your editorial skills. My books are better as a result.”

“Arlene Prunkl was knowledgeable, thorough and meticulous in her copy editing of my Midwestern U.S. county medical history book. She was a delight to work with on this project and, as an unanticipated side benefit of the collaboration, she taught me much about the English language—even modifying her advice to account for the curious ways we have of writing things south of the border!”

“Arlene has edited two of my numismatic research books (the second 180,000 words with over 800 footnotes) and done an excellent job on both. The subject matter is a combination of historical and technical material, and Arlene has succeeded in keeping my writing consistent and focused on readability. She has been available by e-mail and telephone as needed, offering helpful suggestions in advance of her delivery of the edited manuscript. The marked-up text has been easy to read and her frequent notes have helped guide me through the reasons for some of her recommendations. Additional books are planned, and I intend to ask Arlene to edit them, also.”
