Testimonials

 

 

My novel Ink Calls to Ink had gone through at least eight revisions/rewrites with two different editors and three 

beta readers before it was picked up for publication by CHBB Publishing. They handed the manuscript over to 

Carmilla Voiez for final editing. I figured the manuscript was in pretty good shape considering how much work it 

had seen before getting to her, so I anticipated a reasonably quick turn-around. Not only did she find, fix, and 

standardize things no one else had managed to catch or even think about, she did it quickly and painlessly. The 

work she did for my novel was astounding. I couldn’t have hoped for better.

 I have worked with Carmilla Voiez as editor  on my young adult contemporary romance novel, Dismantling Evan.  Her keen eye for details, description, and the over all flow of content and plot have definitely made my manuscript shine.  Not only has she improved my manuscript, she has improved me as a writer explaining along the way why certain things work and others don't in the manuscript.  She is expeditious with her work, which I am so grateful for, while still being thorough.  There was no point in which I felt the editing of my manuscript was cheated by a quick read through.  I am happy to say that because of Carmilla's hard work, Dismantling Evan has received a 5 star review from Readers' Favorite Editorial Review - a professional review service.  I highly recommend Carmilla Voiez's editing services.

As a new author I was nervous about the whole editing process.  Carmilla made it easy and fun!  She made my man-uscript better than I ever could.  I highly recommend her services and will want to use her for all my future novels. -  A.B. Novak (author of Mr Blackwell)

I first approached Carmilla in a very shy and humble fashion. Having been a fan of her Starblood trilogy and a little nervous, I did not anticipate that she would be available to a new writer such as myself. My fears were very quickly extinguished by not only her immediate professionalism but also her kindness and instant interest in my project. In fact I did not know how to respond at first to her enthusiasm and drive, except of course with immense gratitude. I had a total of thirteen stories I needed edited and expected this to take some considerable time, which was also stressing me, as I had a looming deadline. This also proved to be of no problem. The turn around was fantastic. And the results were amazing! Things I never would have caught she picked out with ease. When all was said and done I left with total confidence in the quality of my project and a sense of total satisfaction. Carmilla, I address you in this review to tell you once more before anyone that reads this, to thank you for your kindness, your enthusiasm, your fast results and for the quality in which you performed as editor. I recommend you very highly to anyone with no hesitation and total confidence!

Carmilla took my manuscript and tightened everything that was scrappy and loose. She picked up so many things I didn’t know I did and other things I suspected I did, but was in denial about. Small changes worked wonders with the manuscript. The process also taught me a lot. I learned about my weaknesses and I’m already seeing a benefit for future projects. There were occasions during the edit where Carmilla would suggest a single word change and simple sentence would transform from a mundane description to one that rocks. There is a sentence where “sleek lines” became “sleek silhouettes” and every time I read it I think, “Wow, that’s why editing is important!” Carmilla works quickly and efficiently. Time wasn’t an issue for me but she completed the first phase quicker than I implemented suggestions and read back. All of her notes are clear to understand and implement. Every suggested change improved the text.
