From Pam Wight, author of The Right Wrong Man and Twin Desires
I’m an editor and a writer. Before I published my two books, I had them copy-edited by a professional, read by a dozen readers, and vetted through a critique group. And yet – until Anneli Purchase scoured through my books, mistakes (grammatical, spelling, and more) were not discovered.
Anneli will be my copy editor from now on. After she combed through both of my books, I felt much more comfortable re-publishing the corrected versions. I highly recommend Anneli Purchase!
From Michel Gauthier, author of The Nation Lakes Canoe Route and A Guide to the Sayward Forest Canoe Circuit
I cannot thank you enough for the copy-editing job you have done on my novel. The work was professional, clear, and concise.
You have a great eye for catching typos, spelling errors, missing words, and grammar problems. You also make suggestions regarding word choices that have the potential to improve the clarity of the work, and those suggestions do not, in any way, interfere with the intent or creative impulse of the piece.
I was surprised at the speed at which you can copy-edit text without missing anything. Working with you was a pleasure. You more than deserve your fee.
I recommend your services to any potential customers.

Happy birthday, Mrs. Editor. You don’t know how much your work means to me. I can’t imagine where I would be without you. You have changed my life for the better. Thank you.
