Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Joe DeRouen is a very skilled editor. As an editor myself, I find it very hard to proof my own work, and Joe spots things that others missed. Also, he always meets deadlines and is a joy to work with!

Robin Raven

Author and journalist

Joe waded through nearly three hundred pages of manuscript for me and did so efficiently and promptly. He was a great second set of gentle, focused eyes to clean up my grammar issues and proofread my manuscript.

Michael Neill

Math professor and genealogist

When I was working on my doctorate Joe proofread a couple chapters for me and his attention to detail was exactly what I needed; sometimes when you keep rewriting a section over and over you become ‘blind’ to the readability of content. I’m grateful for Joe’s help!”
