“Finding Sigrid was fantastic for me. I’m a first-time author and was very unsure of how best to proceed with the editing process. Sigrid was responsive, reliable, and very thorough. She was unendingly patient with me and overall just a pleasant person to deal with. I would highly recommend her and I will definitely use her for my next novel as well.”

“It’s a delight working with Sigrid Macdonald. She provided critiques and copyediting services for three children’s books that I have written. Ms. Macdonald is thoughtful and objective.

“Sigrid copyedited The Spirit Path series that I had written and thanks to her expertise and knowledge, I have signed a contract with a publishing house. Not only was she pleasant to work with, but she brought out the best in me and my writing skills. Thank you, Sigrid!”

“Sigrid was very helpful in the publication of my new title, The Story of Aqualead, in December 2013. I have worked with Sigrid on more than one occasion; she is very professional, knowledgeable, consciencious and pleasant to work with. Her work is fast and accurate and her critique was very helpful in elaborating my manuscript… She is a great guide in your work, whether you are a first-time author or an experienced one.”

“Sigrid edited my four self-published books. I was so pleased after the first book that I continued to write three more books and she took my versions of not writing with paragraphs, using all caps, and not using the proper tense, and made them into a book that people rave more about the editing than about my funny stories, all within my time frame to get to the publisher ahead of schedule. She consulted with me in order to make each story come to life as if she were experiencing it.”

“Once you have spent months writing your book, you have a certain anxiety about letting it go. Choosing a copyeditor was somewhat challenging for me. I am so glad I chose Sigrid. I love that she responds to emails fast. She delivers on the agreed deadlines. She asks excellent questions and points out every possible way to make your copy more readable and fluent. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that she was very careful in maintaining ‘my voice.’ In a coaching book, where you are seeking to bond with your audience, this is of paramount importance. Although we live an ocean away, I look forward to continuing my working collaboration with Sigrid for years to come, and would not hesitate to refer her to fiction or nonfiction authors alike.”

“Contacting Sigrid was one of the best decisions that I have made. I was in the process of self-publishing my first book and facing a number of challenges. However, Sigrid made it all so much easier, outlining and simplifying all the steps that I would have to take and even guiding me to the best services that I would need to complete my book. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good editor!”

“As a published author, I realize the importance of a good edit. I hired Sigrid to look over a short story I’d written which I knew had potential but needed work in terms of the narrative structure, especially.She had excellent suggestions and as a result, my story was much more effectively told.”
