Testimonials


  • Quill Pen Editorial has been an amazing company to work with. In the last two years I’ve trusted them with four manuscripts, and they’ve never yet disappointed. Catherine’s comments are as sharp for a memoir as they are for a sci-fi novel; she does a brilliant job of drawing out the best in a draft, and she’s remarkably understanding about receiving euphoric, barely coherent midnight emails with far too many exclamation marks. Quill Pen’s rates are affordable and the editors are fantastic; their passion for turning good writing into great writing has to be seen to be believed.

  • I hired Quill Pen Editorial Services for an editorial evaluation. I found working with Catherine to be a pleasure, she took her time answering my many questions before, during and after the evaluation. Catherine was very professional and my evaluation was returned in a timely manner, she even found a glaring plot issue in my manuscript that went unnoticed by previous editors. I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Catherine and Quill Pen Editorial Services for all my future editorial needs.

  • Quill Pen has been a saving grace for me as an indie author. It’s one-stop, trustworthy editing. Catherine always communicates with me outside of the editing process, she’s available for questions, responds promptly, and will line up other editors for me. For any given novel, I purposefully use up to 4 editors from the Quill Pen group and I have been ecstatic with the results from all of them. My stress level as a small business owner has markedly decreased since I joined the QP team.
