“It is with unmitigated pleasure that I write to endorse Ms. Prunkl’s skill as a copy editor. She is the embodiment of the true spirit and core philosophies that we hold dear at Scarlett magazine: aspiration, ambition and authenticity. When it comes to the English language, Ms. Prunkl has an unerring sense of what is ‘right.’ She also has a keen eye for errors and, more importantly, solid suggestions on how they may be corrected and improved. Perhaps her most valuable contribution is that she takes her work as an editor very seriously and is a true professional in every sense. Highly recommended.”

“While capturing the mood and character of my words, Arlene not only cleaned up syntax and grammar but did what most editors can’t—transformed an already well-written document into something more powerful and captivating for my particular audience. She enhanced my own personal style—as well as my confidence in presenting this application. Arlene is more than an editor; she becomes your advocate.”

Her thorough manuscript evaluation also provided invaluable insight into plot and character motivation that helped propel me in the right direction for the second draft.

“Arlene Prunkl just finished editing, proofreading and creating the index for my new book. I could not be more pleased with the results of her work. Arlene worked relentlessly and tirelessly on the project, bringing it in ahead of time and on budget. Furthermore, I quickly learned to depend on her comments and suggestions, and was amazed at the level of detail and skill she brought to the work. This was my first book and knowing that Arlene was tackling the job with a high level of professionalism and perfection eased my stress level considerably! In addition, she was a pleasure to communicate with—my e-mails received lightning quick response, and she was always friendly and personal, yet professional. Before this project, I wondered why I needed an editor; now I realize that the critical role she played could never have been bypassed if I wanted a professional-quality book.”
