As an author, working alongside a professional who will take your manuscript and help ensure it is ready for publication, to have it polished and shine is a crucial part of your writing journey and as such, it’s incredibly important to work with just the right people. 
To this end, I cannot recommend Julia highly enough. 
I was very close to my publishing date when I found Julia and she raced through my manuscript without missing a beat she understood my voice as a writer, and she understood my genre without hesitation. Julia was incredibly professional but just as important, she was a joy to work alongside as she took the time to not only make and suggest changes but more importantly, explain why she was making them. One additional huge bonus for me was that Julia kept me in the loop at all times about exactly where she was on the project and I was never in any doubt that my manuscript was receiving her undivided attention. Julia also has the unique ability to be exceptionally professional but simultaneously extremely personable, approachable and fun to work alongside and it was such a pleasure to entrust my manuscript to Julia and know that it was in such capable and safe hands.

Working with Julia was both humbling and self-affirming. I sent her my 80,000-word manuscript at a point of crisis. Having had no professional input, I felt too involved in my narrative to look at it critically. Self-doubt had crept in, and I was unsure of my next steps. I have an honours degree in English and have taught in the primary sector for twenty years. I thought I knew grammar; however, Julia’s succinct and careful proofreading taught me rules I was completely unaware of! Her grasp of syntax and vocabulary is exemplary, and sentences I’ve read so many times became so obviously flawed as she sensitively refined them. What amazed me most was Julia’s ability to pick up on phrasing, identifying repetitions and echoes across pages and even chapters. She understood my characters and helped me enhance them through precision language and gently challenging questions that made me reflect on dialogue and description. Her edits were peppered with comments about her experience as a reader that left me feeling assured and validated. I now have a sharper, polished manuscript that I feel confident to submit to agents. Julia is a stealthy and eagle-eyed proofreader who leaves no stone or comma unturned. She champions your writing and gives you the tools to make it the very best it can be.

The word doesn't exist to describe how absolutely grateful I am to Julia Slack. After my previous editor utterly failed me, Julia literally came to my rescue. She went over my book with a fine-toothed comb and helped me produce something I am very proud of. She is very knowledgeable and courteous, offering suggestions that made my story more cohesive. I highly recommend her talents to any author looking to publish quality work. I know that she will be my editor for life.

Julia's attention to detail is second to none. I highly recommend Julia for the final proofread of your novel to make it the best it can be.
