"I want to thank you for the editing you’ve done on The Tilt series. Your comments and suggestions are spot on and have brought the finished product to a whole new level. I also appreciate your responsiveness and turnaround time. You’re a consummate professional. I can’t see myself putting anything out in the future without your help."

Author of The Tilt post-apocalyptic series
"Thank you so much for your hard work. You rock so much--I can't tell you how glad I am to have finally stumbled across you. I just finished going through your edits: amazing. I actually want to cry ... I'm going to do a crazy, wild happy dance through my house after I finish writing this email. I know writing is a business and stuff, but really, all I want is to write good books that are enjoyable for people to read, and without good editing that's just not possible. I'm going to upload revisions immediately.

"I can't rave enough about the quality job that Tamara does in editing manuscripts. She was highly recommended by a friend, and I'm so happy to be working with her. I've used a number of editors, but she's the best I've worked with. Not only does she catch every little nit, but she gives great suggestions on rewording, finds those annoying incongruities, and does it all while being an extreme professional, including regular communication and timeliness."
-- Thomas K Carpenter
"I got Tamara's name from a good friend. I was under a tight deadline and needed someone who was not only a beast at proofreading but who would apply their beast-mode to a tight deadline. Unequivocally, I found that in Tamara. When I got her notes back (and there were a lot of them), I KNEW I'd found my exclusive proofreader. Not only did she catch the things she was supposed to catch, her notes included her thoughts on passages that made me take a closer look and revise. If I'm really honest, I don't want to write this testimonial, but I don't keep her busy enough to keep her to myself. So I'll do what my mom taught me...and share."

"Tamara's editing has been invaluable in getting my novels Petra and Petra Released ready for independent publication. She challenged my assumptions and edited these books the way I wish I could. Beyond that, her knowledge of the indie publishing process alerted me to potential pitfalls I would never have known about otherwise. She made me look good, and believe me when I say I know how hard a job that is. Thanks, Tamara!"

"When the time came to find an editor for my first novel, Love and its Enemies, I selected around a dozen whose services seemed professional and who offered to showcase their skills on a sample of my writing. I sent them all the same sample. While most results were adequate, Tamara's editing was astonishing. In truth, I wasn't expecting her to find many problems, as I hold a first class degree in English literature. How wrong I was: Tamara discovered issues that had been missed by everybody else. We "indie" writers cannot afford not to have a professional editor, and Tamara is the best I have come across. I will not hesitate to use her services again when the time comes to edit my next novel."
-- Dr. Brian A. Murphy
"Tamara Blain blew away my expectations entirely! I couldn't believe how fast she was in turning around my manuscript for my book Pitch Close Upsell Repeat. I will trust only her to make sense of the craziness that I attempt to put down in words. You can't go wrong with Tamara editing your project."
-- Dave Anderson
"Thank you again for your hard work--I really appreciate it. Just wanted to let you know, I was slapping my forehead on so many things you pointed out (you know, 'duh!' moments), and some things had me laughing (couldn't believe I didn't catch them). And the truth sunk in as to why editors are so important!"
