Acknowledgments & Testimonials

Patricia Callahan, copy-editor and proofreader extraordinaire—you are the living embodiment of the expression ‘attention to detail.’

—Jack B. Rochester, author of Wild Blue Yonder

Tricia, thank you for all your notes and edits. You’ve honestly helped me question things I assumed I knew or took for granted. Like how to properly smoke a cigar, or if boxing gloves can be used as oven mitts.

—Jorge Enrique Ponce, author of F*ktory, vols. 1 and 2

I’ve worked with Tricia for multiple projects and am so happy to have found such a solid, interested, thoughtful, careful editor. She always meets her deadlines, and her work is thorough and improves the overall project. I’d work with her on every single book if I could.

—AB Kovacs, partner at Empty Set Entertainment

I would like to thank Patricia Callahan for her sharp, sensitive copyediting and suggestions that improved every page.

—Britt Collins, author of Strays: The True Story of a Lost Cat, a Homeless Man, and Their Journey Across America

Tricia Callahan did a flawless and extremely professional job copyediting an 80K word manuscript for me. She created a beautiful style sheet and in our work process was flexible, punctual and kind—a total pleasure to work with! I cannot recommend her highly enough and very much look forward to working with her again.

—Elizabeth Doyle Carey, author of the Junior Lifeguards series

I also wish to tuck in a quick note of thanks to our copy editor, Tricia Callahan, whose attention to detail made the book just plain better.

—Anthony Tjan, author of Good People: The Only Leadership Decision That Really Matters

When I hired a proofreader after already using a copy editor on my first (40,000-word nonfiction) manuscript, I figured he or she might find a handful of typos and grammatical errors. Instead, I got 2,181 suggested insertions, deletions or formatting changes, and 57 explanatory comments—from Tricia. Wow, was I impressed with her thoroughness and knowledge, and the painstaking work that she did! I can’t possibly imagine recommending a professional any higher than I would recommend Tricia for this service.

—Erik Bork, author of The Idea: The Seven Elements of a Viable Story for Screen, Stage, or Fiction

Tricia caught mistakes that even seasoned proofreaders missed! I’m so glad she was available to check my book one last time before it went to the printers. Tricia was able to work with my tight schedule and I feel incredibly fortunate to have found her.

—M. Yap-Stewart, author of Little Moss, Big Tree

I screened editors for a book manuscript, selected Tricia, and was thrilled with the results. She easily earned five-stars across the board. In fact, Tricia went the extra mile, far exceeding what was expected in terms of quantity and quality of edits. As an indie author on a tight budget, I was concerned about cost. She proved to be worth every penny (and then some). Highly recommend her.
