Beau Beaulieu

Working interactively (using Google Docs) was a pleasure and made the whole process painless.

I have to give huge kudos to Maddy Glenn and Softwood Self-Publishing. As my editor, she was a tremendous help in pointing me in the right direction. Working interactively was a pleasure and made the whole process painless. I would highly recommend them to anyone. When my changes are finished, I plan on using their proofreader service to give it a polished touch. Thank you again, Maddy. It was a pleasure working with you.

Not only is Maddy reliable, she works quickly and effectively.

Maddy Glenn at Softwood Self-Publishing took my manuscript to the next level. Her constructive critiques made me think harder about the plot and evolved the story into something I am proud of. Not only is Maddy reliable, she works quickly and effectively. I am looking forward to working with her in the future to help publish a quality novel.

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.
