" I found Jody through the Brenda Novak On-Line Diabetes Auction and she is editing my first manuscript. I am delighted and thrilled because I have been dreaming of just such a service. I have an extensive bibliography and lots of Internet resources. I joke about researching the Middle Ages into middle age. Jody really does bring fresh eyes to the project. The bonus is her 'regular' edits are stellar, she picks up things my writer's groups missed (and they are pretty stellar). So her work on my book is not just for historical accuracy, but stronger writing. I would highly recommend Jody for her professional editing and hope I can continue with my other books." Anne Beggs , author
