Took my concerns away
"Writing a book for the first time was a daunting exercise. Marja took on my book project, made the process seamless and took my concerns away by creating the flow and structure to enable me to take it to the next stage (publishing) without compromising the theme I wanted to achieve. She simply got it. The process was very professional and structured.
Marja always gave delivery dates, and always delivered on or before those dates. It really turned a process of ‘Where and how do I go from here?’ to an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
During the various editing stages, Marja created a platform to enable my feelings, opinions and thoughts to be expressed so as not to lose what I wanted to achieve. This was very important to me. I certainly recommend Marja for your own book editing." Paul Nielsen, business advice book
Would use Clearlingo again
"Our organisation had worked with Clearlingo on another project, so we returned to them for another piece of work. Marja was efficient and professional. My queries were responded to promptly and even my tight timeframe was not too much of an ask for Clearlingo to achieve. Would recommend and definitely will use again for other projects." Kalliana Kong, Communications Advisor, QEII National Trust
"I came across Marja from Clearlingo while searching for an editor for my book on the internet. I have to say it was the best decision I made. Marja was awesome to deal with. My time frame was quite tight but Marja made sure she fitted me in. She went through my manuscript with a fine-tooth comb, making suggestions along the way, ensuring a professional result. She communicated with me every step of the way and always replied to my queries quickly. I could not be happier with her services. If you are writing a book, do not overlook the importance of employing the services of an outstanding editor. You will not regret choosing Marja." Author, cookbook
Marja's professional and personalised support has enabled me to produce a polished manuscript ready for publishing. I was highly impressed with the lengths that Marja went to, not only with editing and proofreading my text to a high standard but also ensuring that the content was error-free. Throughout the process, I appreciated the clear feedback Marja provided along with the ease of email dialogue enabling me to gain further advice. I would not hesitate to work with Marja again and recommend her services to any writer." Self-publishing author, non-fiction
Kindness, skills and patience
"I could not have done this alone without your kindness and professional skills. And the patience you have is amazing. A thank you is not enough - you are the best. If you are looking for an editor, stop. You have found one." Wendy Reynolds, memoir
I felt she was interested in my story
"This is my first attempt at writing a children’s book and I was recommended to Marja at Clearlingo to copy-edit and proofread my manuscript.
I found her to be very professional right from the start in all aspects of our communication.
Marja is very thorough with storyline, sentence structure, errors, timelines, plot structure and grammar and offers very good advice. I felt she was actually interested in my story by asking questions for clarification.
I would recommend Clearlingo to anyone interested in writing for Marja’s expertise and experience.
I would definitely use her services again."
L Wikeepa, children's book
Best choice to do the job
"As a first-time author of a non-fiction book (and having English as a second language), I was unsure who will help me polish what I’ve written before it gets into publication. It was a delight to find someone who is a highly qualified copy-editor and proof reader, and that’s Marja. I reckon she was the best choice to do the job for my book that I have to wait for several months to fit in with her schedule. But it was worth the wait." Elmer Ado, Taxi driver's self-help book
