flexible with my ever-changing schedule
Adrienne was the editor for my PhD. I would definitely recommend her services. She was a pleasure to work with, especially being flexible with my ever-changing schedule. The editing work was excellent and the examiners of my PhD commented on the quality of narrative. I am sure Adrienne’s editing was a large reason for getting such positive feedback.
just a star
Adrienne is that quintessential gem of an editor who makes your best work just so much better. She edited my new Superintendent Le Fanu crime novel, and it was a revelation working on it with her. Every assumption, name, location and all the rest was checked and double-checked (should there be a hyphen in there, Adrienne?). The human style manual let nothing go by, but that wasn’t the end. Adrienne also came up with some crucial points about story and character development that really helped put things fully in line. So she made the book into what it is now. And, as they say on television, but wait, there’s more ...
Like stones, words are laborious and unforgiving, and the fitting of them together, like the fitting of stones, demands great patience and strength of purpose and particular skill.
Emily, eight months pregnant, and her partner Cam return to Tranquil Bay, a small seaside town in New Zealand, to attend her dad’s 60th birthday bash. She hasn’t been back home since the tragic death of her younger sister Sarah ten years earlier.
The town and old friends she’s lost touch with have moved ahead, but her parents seem to be stuck in a time warp. Emily is shocked to see Sarah’s bedroom like a shrine; it’s obvious her parents haven’t dealt with their grief – but why not, after so long?
