"Grace Bridges’ editing of my fiction was invaluable. She has an eye for word choice and sentence structure, and knows how to polish a manuscript while allowing the author’s voice to carry through. I would never have made it through publishing without the help of her tech skills—formatting and typesetting—as well as her patience and ability to teach those skills. As an artist myself, I found working on cover art with her a synergistic experience. She strove to help me create the cover I had designed but didn’t have the tech skills to carry out. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention her penchant and ability for finding exactly the right font and text layout for covers."

"Grace's extensive knowledge across all areas of independent publishing were invaluable to me as I started publishing under my own brand. Her professional assistance, as well as friendly advice, continue to guide me in my publishing journey."

"An awesome editor, with an unusually keen eye for detail. You are really good at seeing and keeping continuity on a granular level. I really respect how much you know your way around a narrative. You are a discerning reader, and that is what I appreciate most. I got to read [another client's] manuscript after you got done working with it and I have to say you worked some serious magic on it."

"Grace is an extremely professional but amazingly quick editor. She is quite adept at finding the heart of your story and cutting out all the unnecessary tidbits to make it shine. Yet she does it all in a way that only enhances your author voice. I was quite impressed with her insights, but she does have 10+ years of experience at her fingertips. Definitely an editor I'd work with again."

"Grace Bridges has contributed her skills to four of my books, with more to come, and I highly recommend her work. I have greatly enjoyed my association with her. I have found her editorial suggestions to be both accurate and insightful, and very helpful for improving the quality of my books. I love the cover designs she has created which perfectly express my vision for my books. Grace has professional standards in formatting also, and it shows in the quality of what she produces."

"Grace Bridges is an outstanding editor. She is adept at both cover design and interior book formatting. She offered clear, concrete suggestions for improving my manuscript, while at the same time affirming the strengths of my story. She respected my vision for Welcome, Earthborn Brother, instead of trying to force it to fit a particular mold. In addition, she has great expertise in marketing, and knows how to maximize a book's discoverability on the internet through well-chosen key words and categorization. Her responsiveness, attention to detail, and professionalism have made her a joy to work with."

"Grace Bridges proved to be indispensable to me from the beginning of the publishing process to the end, and although I'm past my one-year anniversary, Grace's advice and assistance remains invaluable. From the editing of Isles of Myst, to its cover design and every other aspect, Grace provided a very positive experience for me. I would recommend her services to anyone."

• Grace's unique editing perspective provided insights that improved the structure of my story and the basic word-smithing. She also pointed out places where someoneparticularly in an international audiencemight get confused. The final result was a much stronger story that maintained the unique voice of the characters involved. 
• Her unconventional design approach resulted in a wonderful abstract, wraparound cover that depicts a unique perspective of the telepathic landscape as seen by one of the characters. 
• My book's typesetting is an excellent bit of work that included design elements from the story and cover. The final result has gotten kudos from readers and another publishing house that maintains a meticulous standard.

"Working with Grace was a breeze in all aspects of creating a novel. I highly recommend her services."
