Testimonials

Latest testimonials from my happy clients!

 

Norman … “As a business owner, the last thing I have time for is writing blogs for my website, but I know how essential good content is in order to promote my business. Since meeting Janice, it’s been easy. We have a quick chat around the subject I’d like her to write about, and within a short time, 750 words are ready to post. As well as creating relevant content, she manages to sound like me but without the typos and grammar malfunctions! I’d happily recommend her.”

Norman Ellis, CEO and high profile salon owner, Essex Hairdressers.com

DIMITRIS … “I contacted Janice almost by coincidence, having a very short deadline to submit a short story. I was stunned with her rapidity, efficiency and how she understood perfectly and immediately each and every sentence of my original script, written in English but by a non-native English speaker. All her corrections/suggestions were spot on, and I was extremely pleased with her professional service, professional manner and her final product. It takes a very experienced and multi-lingual editor/proofreader to offer such quality in such a short time!”

Dimitris Politis, Editor at European Commission, Brussels

GAVIN  “Janice has been a life-saver as I’ve dipped my toe in the self-publishing waters. Not only is she a solid proofer, she also helped with the copy-editing process and consistency. She has become a much-valued and  enthusiastic member of my self-publishing team as I forge ahead in developing my range of fiction, and I would highly recommend using her for your own work.”

Gavin Griffiths, publisher and writer of Apocalypse Issues. Book 3 coming soon!

STELLA … “I have known Janice since 2012 when she attended a VA training course with me. Janice’s attention to detail is nothing less than outstanding when it comes to reviewing and writing text. Janice has worked on several pieces of work for me and has improved the quality of the writing 200%. She has also proofread for me and produces nothing less than the gold standard in my experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Janice for copy-editing and proofreading.”

Stella Gooch, Virtual PA

JIMMI … “I contacted Janice through her website. She was so kind to consider us even though we are from a far distant land (India). She not just edited our material, instead, she understood the real essence of the content and edited accordingly and now it looks very fluid… words are limited to express my gratefulness…”

Jimmy Pathadan, Everx

KEVIN … “Janice offers a fantastic copy-editing service. Fixing my typos and grammatical errors in my blog posts is important to ensure my site comes across as professional, but as a copy-editor, Janice also makes important enhancements to the copy in terms of readability, flow, engagement etc.

I highly recommend using a copy-editor for your websites, and the service Janice offers is second to none!”

Kevin Gordon, founder, Digital Technology Labs

Chris makes no secret that he is dyslexic… he also confessed to me “… I once sent a menu to a lovely old client and much to her amusement, promising fragrant salads of guinea ‘foul‘ and new season lamb hand ‘calved‘ at the table!’  ‘Sounds quite a spectacle’! she neatly quipped…” [sic]

VAUGHN … “Janice is the consummate professional. Her experience and attention to detail are beyond superior! She did an amazing job editing my rough draft fictional thriller. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with her, because she always had a great outlook and stayed focused on the project as a whole. Janice’s professional attitude, editing skills, and knowledge of the publishing world is outstanding. Because of her background, she also brought a level of knowledge to the job that far exceeded my expectations. If you need a book editor with an eye for detail and valuable knowledge mixed with determination, look no further than Janice Gilbert.”

Vaughn Ripley, Senior Principal at Mythics Inc, Washington DC.
Vaughn has also written his autobiography: Survivor – One Man’s Battle with HIV, Hemophilia and Hepatitis C” available on Amazon

 

FHC (Name withheld pending publication) … “First of all let me thank you profusely for putting me onto Janice. I have just completed the review of her work on my book and it is simply excellent. She really knows what she’s about.”

Note from me: I was thrilled with this as it was my longest project to date. The memoirs of a boy dropped into British public school after a childhood spent playing barefoot in the sun on another continent, included a lot of French vocabulary which I really enjoyed tackling. The client has a high profile in his home country, and for that reason, his name is withheld for now.

KATE … “I met Janice at the London Book Fair in 2017 and we got talking. I offered her a complimentary copy of one of my Pocket Manager books. Not only did she give me very positive feedback on the useful content of this book and its appropriate tone, but she also pointed out several typos which had slipped through the editorial net. What a lovely and generous lady.”

Kate Keenan, author and psychologist

DAVID Several years ago I wrote my first children’s book, working title: ‘The Pig That Flew’.  I had many failed attempts at getting publishers or agents interested. I was introduced to Janice by a mutual friend and she took on the task of proofreading and editing my book. The transformation has been unbelievable, we are still fine tuning, but I DO believe that with Janice on board, ‘The Pig That Flew’ will finally get to FLY!”

David Wood, children’s writer and poet
