I would like to thank editor, Edwina Harvey for her invaluable work that she is doing in editing my essays for my Masters degree during the past 2 years. She is not only correcting grammatical spelling or making the document read fluently. She catches the meaning of my ideas and she gives me choices if she is in doubt. I am very happy to work with her, she is a professional and a person with an abundant knowledge.
“I certainly feel like my work is in very safe hands with you and I really appreciate everything you’ve done so far to help me sharpen my writing up!”
Jordan Harcourt-Hughes, author and illustrator of Bitroux: The Metalsmith (revised edition, 2015. Yet to be published?)
I am pleased to add a personal recommendation from R.S.A Garcia, author of Lex Talionis, Dragonwell Publishing, 2014:
“Edwina, Lex Talionis would have been one screwed up book without you. Full of potential and nothing else. It was your guidance and eye that helped me find the way through to a book good enough to make PW take notice. I will forever be grateful, and yes, if all goes well, we will work together again 🙂 I would LOVE that.” http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-1-940076-12-6#path/978-1-940076-12-6
I’m pleased to add the following reference from Dragonwell Publishing (USA).
I have worked with Dragonwell as a freelance editor on several novels now, and look forward to working with them on future books.
To whom it may concern:
I am glad to write this letter as an enthusiastic reference to Ms. Edwina Harvey in her capacity as a freelance editor.
We have been employing Edwina Harvey as a lead editor for Dragonwell Publishing during the past 2 years. In this capacity Ms. Harvey has edited a number of our manuscripts and we hope she will continue working with us for the years to come.
Ms. Harvey is an outstanding editor, exceptional both in the quality of her work and in being reliable and dependable, able to keep the schedule and meet deadlines if needed. She is an insightful and intuitive editor who can work with an author to engender their confidence and help them produce a clearer, more readable work of fiction. She is able to see the best in each work and is flexible and open-minded in her approaches to making this best stand out and shine in the finished book. Her abilities as an editor and her professional qualities have made her an important asset to our publishing house. We consider it a joy and privilege to work with her.
We would gladly recommend her to any author or publisher looking for an editor to help them enhance their work.
“Edwina is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has a sharp editorial eye and a real skill for bringing out the essence of any story. I’m very happy to recommend her, and hope to work with her again soon.”
– Jo Anderton, author of Debris and Suited. September 2012
“Edwina Harvey was my editor for some short fiction I wrote for her issue of ASIM. As the best editors should, she made me proud of the finished product and I was happy to make the journey with her.”
– Sue Bursztynski, author of Crime Time: Australians Behaving Badly, and Wolfborn, September 2012
“Edwina worked on the new edition of my YA short story collection Life, Death and Detention, helping me to update the stories from their original 1990s setting to the 21st Century. Her editorial input was invaluable in the shaping of this new edition, her feedback incisive and honest.”
– George Ivanoff, author of Life, Death and Detention, August 2012
Edwina is a skilled and incisive editor with a keen feel for language and a commitment for recommending changes that will benefit your writing. She’s conscientious, communicates clearly, and is warm and approachable. I trust her with my own work (she’s edited several of my short stories as well as my debut collection of fiction), and will continue to do so. I’ve also worked extensively with her, as a colleague at Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine since 2007 and recently as a co-editor for a small-press anthology. I can heartily recommend her services as an editor.
