What My Clients Say…
I found my courage and created a habit to take on writing my very first book. When I was finished it was obvious I needed help from an editor that could help me correct my mistakes, and find the best way to present my words. I went through five editors before finding April. She provided her sample edit, and I knew she was the right editor. Every change she made improved my writing. I don’t know when I’ll write another book, but I do know who I’ll have edit it.
I just wanted to put in a plug for this fantastic editor April Bennett. She is not only crazy smart, she is funny, direct but kind, and best of all as a published romance writer herself, she understands the amount of heart and soul that goes into each and every book an author writes. I am a better writer thanks to her skills and advice.
As an author there are few things more important than finding a quality editor you can trust to be quick, reliable, and accurate. April is all of those things and more.
She is skilled at not only providing an excellent service, but doing it at a fair cost and with a gentle hand. Her ability to professionally edit while still maintaining an author’s voice and intention is second to none.
I would recommend her to any writer, new and experienced alike, looking to add polish and flow to their prose.
April was a fantastic proofreader for my novel: Feathers, Tails & Broomsticks.
Her communication was easy and timely. She was a joy to work with (and well-priced). April said my manuscript was clean, so it took her less than a week to proofread, making small suggestive comments along the way (nothing heavy, always politely). April’s keen eye caught things (like a character having too many hands) that I never would have seen! She also left charming comments on the book which made me smile. So grateful. I’ll definitely be coming back for more when I’ve written my next book! Absolutely 5 star-service here.
April gave me some much-needed peace of mind by copyediting the fall issue of the program book for the Idaho Falls Symphony. She squeezed the project in on short notice and I trusted her fully because of her amazing editing skills and her knowledge of classical music. She is supportive and understanding, and caught things that I NEVER would have seen. Her work was incredibly helpful, and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!
Once again, April proved to be a fantastic proofreader for my second book.
When I started out as an author (now full-time), it was overwhelming to try to find an editor. There were so many to choose from, but when I sent April a sample of my work (I may have added tiny mistakes just to check 😉) she caught them all and even noticed since the rest was so smooth that they had to be intentional (even things like a slightly misspelled made-up word).
April is someone upon whom I now thoroughly rely. She is always a joy to work with and caters to my schedule wherever possible and often finishes a few days before her deadline, because she’s just that good. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend April as an editor and I’m so glad I never have to worry about that part of my writing process again. I’m more than happy to leave my books in her hands, knowing that she will be efficient, kind and positive. Her communication was always friendly and fast, and she knows how to treat a writer’s book-baby.
As always, five-star service from April. 😊
I began working with April early 2018, after posting in a large editor’s group. I was on the hunt for a new partner in crime. Because that’s what I wanted–a partner. Someone who cared about my work, as well as my person. I found that in spades with April. 2018 hasn’t turned out, at all, how I expected. Family took priority, and my production spiraled to the lowest it’s ever been. At no time did April make me feel like a failure.
She lifted me up, more times than I can count, and urged me towards the finish line whilst also catering to my emotional and physical health. Editing is her job, but she’s never once made me feel like I’m a paycheck. And, down to the meat of the business side, she’s an excellent editor. Her turn-around time is amazing. I’ve had to toss a short story her way with 2 days’ notice, and she’s barreled it back at me with her usual level of notes, corrections, and suggestions.
She’s dedicated, and loves stories. That’s easy to tell. I can imagine her spiraling around in Beast’s library, soaking in all the delicious books. She’s a veritable Belle-in-reality, red pen in hand. An editor without that sort of passion isn’t the kind I want. I’m looking forward to so many fruitful years with April, to building our relationship, to becoming dear heart friends. I know 2019 will be my best year yet, because I have her in my corner. If you’re on the fence, take a chance on her. Send her a sample. She’s amazing.
I am an international master’s student majoring in Musicology and I had a pleasure of working with April for the past few months. Not only that April has helped me with grammar and syntax in my papers, but more importantly she would kindly suggest and point out every possible section that needed improvement, and helped me to take it to the next level. Moreover, April was always so prompt and quick: often she would tweak my assignments within 24h and we never ever missed the deadline.
The words cannot express how grateful I am for her being willing to work with me, and expertise. Highly recommended, especially if one is a writer-musician. Thank you, April!
Let me tell you, April is amazing! I found her through a mutual friend recommendation and her copy line edits are awesome! My last book she worked on, she helped me with the flow which I’ve gotten amazing feedback about. If you’re hesitant to try her, don’t be. You’ll wish you found her sooner!
