Client Testimonials

for Editor: Maddy Glenn

Robert Gwaze, International Chess Champion and Grandmaster

My experience with Maddy Glenn was a truly insightful and memorable one.

As a writer working on my first book, I was desperately browsing the net in search of an
editor, so I was really glad to come across Maddy Glenn. My experience with her was a truly insightful and memorable one. I liked that she criticized me in a constructive, friendly sort of
way and made sure that her work was always delivered on time. I liked all the suggestions
she gave me, as they improved upon what I had said without altering my tone and my
intent. What I appreciated most about Maddy was the fact that she not only detected most
of the inaccuracies that had been bothering me, such as redundancy issues; but also
because she gave me the chance to come back if I needed a run-through of my book. She
even noticed and corrected small errors that I had not detected, so because of this, she gave me much value for my money. I really enjoyed working with her and am looking forward to working with her again.

Working with Maddy was a wonderful experience.

She was very professional from day one. We agreed on a timeline and a schedule and she was always on time. She was kind enough to give me loads of extra time beyond her contractual obligations when I was running behind on my deliverables. Her edits were great. I agreed with 99% of her suggestions or changes. She caught even the most minute of errors and paid attention to small details. She had great suggestions on how I could improve my novel without taking away from my creative process or changing my intent. She praised my story when she enjoyed it and gave respectful and productive criticism when she didn't. Overall, I would rate working with Maddy a 10 out of 10. I would definitely work with her in the near future and recommend her to others. Thank you!

Maddy understood my anxieties on every level and was a calm and positive presence from the first moment we decided to work together.

The facilitator of my writing group, Dreamwriters, introduced me to Maddy Glenn, who I instantly warmed to. She understood my anxieties on every level and was a calm and positive presence from the first moment we decided to work together. She is well read and erudite, but not stuffy! 

Firstly, she looked through my novel and made helpful and supportive criticisms. She was thorough and polite, but also firm and decisive, and she “got’ my novel with all its twists and turns.

Maddy went on to do a full edit for me in a format I could understand and, over several weeks, we worked together almost daily, which was a boost to my self-confidence and was great value for money. I trusted her completely with my “new baby” and I welcomed all her comments and input.

Finally, my novel is finished and it has been one of the most fulfilling partnerships I have had. Together, we’ve polished off what Maddy tells me is a “wonderful novel”. Maddy is now working with me to help me find an agent and/or self publish.

She comes very highly recommend both professionally and personally.
