Testimonials

  • Six-figure book deal at Ballantine Bantam Dell, Random House.

    “I got my dream editor. Andrea’s sensitive to the work, but knows what to cut to make it sing. She’s also a lovely, easy person to talk to, which helps when you’re trying to get your arms around a rangy manuscript. And to top it all off, she makes every effort to get her editorial comments back quickly, a huge plus. I loved my time with NY Book Editors. The whole experience was a pleasure.” Martha Hall Kelly, The Rabbits of Ravensbruck

  • Six-figure deal at Harlequin, Movie rights represented by ICM. Read Alex’s interview.

    “I am honest when I say there is absolutely no way I could have accomplished this dream without you. I was just raving about you again to my friend … I loved my experience working with you — it was the equivalent of a very expensive MFA.” – Alex Brunkhorst, The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine

  • Acquired by RosettaBooks. Read Wendy’s interview about how she almost self-published. 

    “I loved working with Christine. She was great, and her help invaluable. I will definitely want to work with her again on my next book! I got a publishing deal (yay) last week, so book will hit bookstores, etc. May 3, 2016.” – Wendy Simmons

  • Seven offers from agents, Six-figure deal at Razorbill/Penguin, Film rights sold to Paramount Pictures in a major deal.

    “My editor took the book to the next level, cut the fat, made sure it was pretty much perfect, which impressed agents … You consider the writer, and which editor would be passionate about their work. I think that’s really special and not normal. I’m a big fan of you guys.”

     

  • iTunes #1 eBook Bestseller.

    “Kiele has a real intuitive sense when it comes to scoping out what works and what doesn’t with a manuscript. With her guidance I was able to turn my manuscript into the best version of itself and take it beyond the level of perfection that I thought was possible. I am extremely happy with the final product and I cannot wait to work with the very talented Kiele again!” – K.T. Edwards, Whatever Happened to Romance

     

  • Self-published, approached by publishers to acquire rights. Read her feature in the Wall Street Journal.

    “Maggie was wonderful and insightful … we’re in a second round of submissions now [to publishers].” – Rachel Hulin, Hey Harry Hey Matilda 

  • Self-published Kindle Bestseller. Read her interview here.

    “I LOVED working with Angela. Her notes were incredibly thorough and helped make the book far better than it was.” – Dete Meserve, Good Sam

  • “Daniel lifted the manuscript to a whole new level, without ever jeopardising my voice, which I appreciated very much. He understood the novel immediately and worked hard to bring out the best of it and smooth out the rough patches. The line editing was perfect. Sentences and dialogues were transformed fabulously.” – Branka Valcic, The Lady of the Sea

  • Acquired by Pandamoon Publisher.

    “My editor was both gracious and professional, and his feedback on my novel was thoughtful, thorough, and supportive—everything I could ask for. I’m happy to report that a much-revised version of the book is going to be published later this year.” – Randolph Splitter, The Ramadan Drummer

  • “Nobody picked up on any of the things that my editor did. Some of them I felt uncomfortable about myself and couldn’t put my finger on what was bothering me, so I got exactly what I had hoped to get, and I can’t thank you enough.”

  • “Working with Jane and NY Book Editors helped me make sure the story I intended to write was the story that I actually wrote. You won’t get that just by passing it around your circle of friends. Jane was able to expose the weaker sections that needed more of my writing attention. With this guidance, NY Book Editors helped me confidently move forward in pursuit of my writing and publishing goals. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!” – Bonnie Jean Feldkamp, Moving Mountains

  • “You are brilliant. I am overwhelmed and sincerely grateful for all you’ve done for this book.” – Slade Combs, The Choice

  • “There are a lot of book doctors out there who can just be so wrong for what I was trying to do. So I consider the fact that I discovered NY Book Editors a huge stroke of luck. They’ve been incredible, and I can say without a doubt that Balm is a much, much stronger book as a result.” – Marie Green McKeon, A Balm in Gilead

  • “My editor’s professionalism was first rate, and her insights were transformative for my manuscript. ” – Kristina Fernandez, Shades of Forgiveness

  • I wanted to thank you and NY Book Editors for the opportunity to work with you and Victoria. I am very pleased with the critique. I am absorbing everything she wrote. Victoria is full of suggestions and not just vague general ones but very specific … Everyone’s contribution at NYBE made my experience something I will rely upon as I become a better writer. It has been an exciting and inspiring journey.” – Nancy Hall, Tilted

  • “I’m enjoying Rakesh’s thoughts and insights very much. I feel the book has strengthened by leaps and bounds.” – Albert Flynn DeSilver, Brooklyn, Wyoming

  • “You get the kind of people I could only get access to at a Big Five Publisher. I was matched with a professional editor with years of experience, who I couldn’t get as a self-published author. She found my weaknesses as a writer. I’m excited about this new direction, excited about the work.” – Randy Anderson, Careful

  • Received offers from five literary agents. Signed with Stacy Testa from Writers House.

    “I couldn’t be more thankful for William Boggess’ help. I’m almost done going through the line edits. And I agree with everything he talked about in the memo, which means that I have a lot of work to do.” 

  • Signed with a literary agent.

    “My main concern when starting this process was whether or not the editor was going to “get it”, and by that I mean understand what I was trying to accomplish with the novel.  Fortunately, you totally understood what I’m going for and I feel like you did a fantastically thorough job of thinking about the book, I couldn’t be happier.  It was so refreshing to finally be able to have a professional look through the story and digest it and then make all these genuinely thoughtful suggestions.” —  Doug Bean, PanGex

  • Self-published by Amazon.

    “Finding a good editor is very difficult, finding an excellent one is nearly impossible. I spent days and days scouring the internet, reading forums and learning about other people’s experiences before I stumbled upon several editors and companies that looked promising. Chief among them was New York Book Editors. I sent a sample of my book to all of the prospects, and I managed to narrow my list down to two editors. In the end, I chose Katrina Diaz from New York Book Editors. I chose her because she wasn’t just a good editor, she was an excellent editor! Katrina’s attention to detail was superb, she weeded out so many plot holes and flaws that I had missed. Her input helped smooth out the story like a steamroller on hot asphalt.


    When it came to the copyediting we had a bit of hiccup, but New York Book Editors bent over backward to make it right, they certainly put their customers first!


    I wouldn’t think twice about using New York Book Editors services again and I thoroughly recommend their services to the discerning author who requires absolute professionalism and quality.”— Jack Coleston, The Ulterior Motive

  • “I am so beyond THRILLED by this memo, and it is clear that you have absolutely paired me with the right author from your team. Every single section poses questions on the VERY same issues that I too, was struggling to figure out, and at times, knew they were beyond flawed and why, but struggled to know exactly how to address them, hence why I did this edit in the first place. So to see that my editor has directly touched on some of the EXACT same areas I had questions about, is more pleasing than you could ever know. I mean, with some of these suggestions, she has literally stated word for word the issues that I pained myself over throughout the entire writing process. It’s as if she was reading my mind!” — Tia Day, Lucy’s Legacy

  • “With edits, often heavy, on nearly every page, Julie Tibbott’s comprehensive edit is of great value. I definitely needed a sharp pair of eyes to look at my manuscript so I could see that “eyes, look,” and other words were used excessively. I really liked the way she took existing lines and moved them to a place where they would have more impact. The recommendations in the memo to cut excessive information were especially important, as making the story clear to readers is my greatest concern. Comments in the memo and manuscript shedding light on things that were illogical, missing, or not fully shown were truly helpful as were those pointing out what was done well. Two of the most important comments, one from the trial edit and one from the comprehensive edit, inspired a more meaningful beginning and a more powerful end. I will request Julie’s service for future work.”  Hildebrand Hermannson, A Greater Glory

     

  • Self-published by Amazon.

    “Dan, thank you so much for all your help and professionalism over the last eighteen months and for linking me to Megan McKeever. Megan, thank you so much for helping me to craft my words into a story.  When you said I would probably cut most of it after the first draft, I didn’t think I had it in me, but several months later I am now very excited to be an author.  I hope I have done you proud” Lily Fox, Searching for Love Online, Lily Fox Books

  • Published by Open Door Publications

    “Thanks to the outstanding work of New York Book Editors, I can say, loud and proud, ‘I love my book!’ NYBE matched me with the expertise of Ronit Wagman, whose insights and line edits helped me turn my so-so manuscript into a well‑crafted memoir” Vivian Fransen, The Straight Spouse: A Memoir
