We were preparing to self-publish our first co-written book on the subject of creativity and, with all the back and forth that collaborating involves, we really needed a fresh pair of eyes on the manuscript to pick up all the things we were too close to see. In her fantastic copy edit, Sara more than exceeded our expectations. Sara has an incredibly thorough approach and showed an astute understanding of the book’s aims – it was evident from the first few pages that our manuscript had been in safe hands. Writing and then self-publishing a book can be daunting. Finding an editor you can trust is a huge part of that. We’re so grateful to Sara, whose attention to detail and enthusiasm for our book really helped us take our manuscript to the next level. (Nicola Jackson and Teresa Wilson, authors of ‘Seven Creative Gremlins’)
