I have had the pleasure of working on a variety of genres and I am flattered that some of my authors have done me the favor of providing references.  I have worked with some authors as a proofreader only, others, I have provided services as a beta reader/copy editor or even as an extra pair of eyes after a work has been edited.  I am flattered that most of the authors who have commented below have allowed me to work on subsequent manuscripts.  That is the best compliment, repeat business!

Thank goodness Elf was recommended to me. I needed someone with a keen eye and found it with Elf! She’s professional, courteous and dependable. She hits her deadlines, which is a must in this industry. I highly recommend her if you need help with characterization, plotting, grammar or any number of other editing services. She really fine-tuned and polished my manuscript and made it much better than it was. I can’t say enough nice things about her work.

“Finding a professional, competent content editor is a challenge – especially for a debut author like myself.  I am so thankful I found ELF! She’s succinct…reliable…thought-provoking…insightful. And these are only a few words to describe ELF’s editorial abilities…which I highly recommend. I’d be lost without her patience and guidance.”
Keri Kruspe
Thanks to ELF’s editing services, my prose shines and blazes with heat! Recommended to me by Cynthia Sax, I highly respect ELF’s professionalism, time management, and wordsmithing skills. ELF is a gem in my writer’s toolkit.
Thanks for helping me bring The Dirty Motorcycle Road Racing Series to life, ELF!
You’re a gem.

“ELF has a keen eye, catching things previous editors have missed. She has a quick turnaround but her work isn’t rushed. Her observations about plot and pacing are gold. I (and my many pen names) highly recommend her.”
~ DZRB Books

“I am so glad I found ELF’s editing! ELF is a joy to work with, and her insights are invaluable. She’s dedicated, thorough, and picks up on inconsistencies others have missed. I highly recommend her!”

Nancy Corrigan

There’s a reason why so many of my stories are dedicated to ELF. ELF is a talented editor. She edited the story that first landed me on the USA Today Bestseller List! She polishes my stories until they shine and pushes me to become a better writer. The continuity work she provided on Sinful Rewards, my 12 novella contemporary erotic romance serial from Avon Impulse, was priceless. The insights she gives me on the world building in my Science Fiction stories are fantastic.  I highly recommend her services!
Cynthia Sax, USA Today Bestselling Erotic Romance Writer
ELF is a superb editor to work with. She’s fast, dependable, and meticulous – all the things you’d want in a great editor. ELF helps to make my manuscripts shine by working her talent, and offering suggestions in a clear concise manner. I highly recommend ELF if you’re looking for an editor who knows what they’re doing.
Laci Paige, Author of the Silken Edge series
I highly recommend ELF’s editing services! Fast, reliable, communicative.
ELF catches mistakes in grammar and continuity that others miss.
Now that I have found ELF, I’m not letting her go!
No way will I let any of my future books be released without ELF proofing them first.
ELF brings a unique view to her editing.
Top notch service.
ELF delivers what she says she will, in a fast, reliable manner.
Sierra Cartwright, International Bestselling Author
ELF is an amazingly skilled editor. She has remarkable insight into the story’s plot and continuity as well as great talent in line editing. She can do it all. Since I’ve used her editing services, I’ve won two contests, and I consistently receive fabulous reviews. I recommend her highly.

“Rode Hard and Put Up Satisfied”
Thank you for the great proofing and editing! Your work is excellent and it makes all the difference in the world.
Cheyenne McCrayNew York Times bestselling author
    ELF edited my recent book, and I consider myself fortunate to have had her expert advice. I found her to be dedicated, efficient, and extremely creative. Equally important, she knows how to handle an author’s often fragile self-confidence with the greatest tact and sensitivity. I can’t recommend her highly enough to authors who need the help of a skilled professional to smooth out their writing, improve pacing, refine characterization, and make their manuscripts shine.
Darcy Lundeen, author of Adore Me
(ELF) was a very helpful copyeditor. Her knowledge of English grammar is terrific and she found errors that after a moment’s consideration I thought, yes, that’s spot on. Her work was always timely. She was always willing to listen to me in any dialogue over the project. I would recommend her to anyone needing an editor. I know she is taking this role very seriously and has been doing courses to improve her skills and knowledge. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again, especially as she learns more about editing rather than copyediting.
David Burrows, author of Prophecy of the Kings trilogy and Drachar’s Demons
Praise and appreciation to my editor ELF, whose advice not only helped bring my story to print but continues long past the printing press. ELF’s insight and guidance is immeasurable.
