Before I hired Ashly to edit my manuscript, I felt disorganized and overwhelmed with the task of completing my book. A good friend who I trust recommended Ashly’s services—and when Ashly and I spoke for the first time I recognized that working together would be a great partnership. 

Thanks to Ashly, I went from a disorganized manuscript to a cohesive first draft. Ashly provided excellent support and honest, constructive feedback. She was always nimble in her offerings and adjusted her services along the way to fit my developing needs. 

Working with Ashly pushed me to be a better writer and enabled me to reach my goal of finishing the first draft of my book by the end of 2017. Thanks to Ashly, I hope to have the final draft completed in the next six months!

I can't even begin to say how amazing working with Ashly has been! My book wasn't more than an idea on 30 pages, I had no idea what to do to make it better, and I felt completely overwhelmed at the thought of actually finishing it. 

Four months ago I told my husband my book wasn't happening: I just couldn't do it. Today, I have almost 600 people on my book launch team. 

Ashly is the one who made that happen. 

And the best part? Ashly didn't come in and tell me exactly WHAT to write, instead she taught me how to WRITE:

-she helped me clarify my vision
-she encouraged me and helped me validate my ideas
-and she showed me how to polish my writing and make it clear

Wherever you are in the process of writing your book, you need to contact Ashly. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Before I hired Ashly, I felt overwhelmed. I was compiling an anthology for my literary magazine and was in desperate need of editing help! Ashly stepping in and was amazing. She’s thorough and she cared about the book the way I did. It was such a relief.

Now that the anthology is complete, I’m confident the book is clean of errors and the product is one that I’m proud of. Going forward, I’m eager to work with Ashly on future editions. She is both incredibly professional and incredibly sweet — I wish we lived closed in proximity so could chat over coffee!

This talent of a woman has been one of the best things that ever happened to my blog and my confidence. I used to refer to myself as a processor (not a writer) who just needed a space to say my thoughts aloud.

Ashly has helped redefine my misconceptions about being a “true writer” and pushed me towards owning my passions and finding freedom in voice. I am forever grateful to have Ashly in my corner.

Before working with Ashly on my plot summary I felt pretty alone. I wasn’t sure if I was on to something with my book idea or not. I chose to work with Ashly because I’d seen some of her other edited work and saw she was the real deal - very insightful and original.

When Ashly edited my plot summary, she helped me fill in at least three plot holes and totally changed the background of one character I was stuck with! She also inspired me to set aside one day a week for straight up writing. She was so incredibly thorough, I felt I could just lean back and give her the wheel for awhile.

I loved working with her because she was so intuitive and understanding. She loves writing and stories and it shows! I am looking forward to having someone I trust available to continue looking over my work! Thank you so much, Ashly!
