PRAISE For Joy Editing
"I was referred to Cassie by another author who (like me) was very pleased with her work. Not only is she fast, efficient, and thorough, she's sweet and personable, always making sure to take some time out to get to know you. She's that good with everything she does that (despite being traditionally published) there hasn't been a time in which I haven't sent my work off to her before my in-house editor gets ahold of it!
Hands down, Joy Editing is the place to go if you're looking to make your words shine!"
- Gail McHugh, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the COLLIDE series
"Having worked with Cassie for the past three and a half years, I can honestly say she has made me a better writer. She not only makes my writing tighter, she isn’t afraid to question me or challenge me, and I need that. She is professional, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. She has yet to miss a deadline, and with the demands I make on her time that is no small feat. I am not exaggerating when I say I wouldn’t be where I am in my career if not for her. If you are an author ready to take your writing to the next level, Cassie can help you get there."
- Cheryl Douglas, USA Today bestselling author
"I've worked with Cassie on nearly two dozen novels and can't imagine publishing a book without the invaluable editing input from Cassie and her crew. Highly recommended!"
- Nicole Williams, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Crash series and Lost & Found series
"I published my first book in 2011, and I couldn't have done it without the help and fantastic skills of Cassie. Since that first book, I've published 17 books between two names, and the only reason why I've been able to do it is because I have Cassie as my editor. She is in-depth, critical, insightful, and damn good at her job. I have recommended her time and time again, and as long as Cassie is editing, I will continue to do so. I am lucky that Cassie has been with me through my whole publishing career, and I couldn't imagine doing it without her. She reads so many books each month, but when I send her a sequel to a book she's edited for me, she remembers things about the story that I've forgotten even as the author - it is incredible. She is a dedicated reader who becomes invested in the story she's working on as though it were her own, and she truly cares about her clients and their success. Cassie knows our success is her success, so if you want that kind of person behind you, helping you to grow your craft and make you a stronger writer, you want Cassie Robertson editing your work."
- Shauna Granger, author of the Ash & Ruin trilogy and Matilda Kavanagh series
"I was referred to Cassie by a trusted friend who had also used her editing services. Working with Cassie was and is a complete joy! I wasn’t sure what to expect, not having much experience with editing, but was completely blown away. After the first read-through, she contacted me to go over things she thought might need some work before she went into her copy edit. Not only did she allow me time to make the changes, she also made herself available to me for questions and concerns that I might have while making changes. The one thing that stands out about Cassie is that she is honest; when she finds something that should be questioned, it is; when she likes something, she commends you with positive reinforcement; and when she finds something that makes her laugh, she shares it. Cassie is flexible with scheduling, understanding that things come up and scheduled editing might need to be changed. In addition she keeps to her schedule, which is very important when keeping a timeline. I couldn’t be happier about my experiences with Cassie, which is why I’m looking forward to working with her in the future!"
- Susan Cairns, author of The Reunion series
"Joy Editing is just that. A joy. Cassie has line edited over twenty of my books and she has never been late, has never stressed me out, and has never stripped the books of the voice I've developed. She is an indispensable part of my team."
- CD Reiss, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Submission series and Perdition series
"I recently started working with Cassie and have no plans to stop. She's provided me content and line edits, and appears to wear both hats effortlessly. Her suggestions are at once sensible and creative. Cassie is every bit as professional as anyone I've encountered; she's smart, communicative, transparent, outcome-oriented, and has exceptional follow through. Authors today are blessed with so many options when it comes to building their teams, and as a result, I only work with people who blow me away. When I look at my publishing schedule for the next year, I know Cassie will help me create books my readers will LOVE - on time and on budget."
- Piper Lawson, bestselling author of the Play and Travesty series
"Having worked with Joy Editing in the past when I found myself in need of a full developmental edit I immediately reached out to Cassie and her team. Cassie recommended that I work with Kate and I could not be more pleased with that recommendation. Kate read through my entire manuscript and managed to pull out exactly the threads I wanted to highlight and tie them together in a way that not only improved the story as a whole but addressed the precise concerns I had and several bits of feedback I had received from editors and agents during my query process. The edit notes I received back were beyond thorough and comprehensive and were more than I could have hoped for. I'm excited about the new version of my manuscript that is every bit the story I intended to write from the beginning. As authors we tend to get so close to the story we not only lose objectivity but can also miss opportunities to make our characters and our story shine. Kate found all of those possibilities and more for my manuscript. I've already recommended her work to every author I know and will definitely reach out to her again the next time I'm ready for a content edit."
- Angela Evans, author of Hiding in Plain Sight and the trilogy Dangerously: Sweet, Distracted, & Exposed
“Joy is a pleasure to work with and a valuable asset to my brand and my writing. She gives me priceless advice and has helped me become a better writer. I enjoy every moment of working with her and the entire team at Joy Editing!”
- Erin Raegan, author of Pythen and Shadow Assassin
