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 overall 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 turnaround 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 has just edited my third book and as always it has been a great experience.
When she writes, Carmilla has a supernatural ability to play with words. They dance for her. This comes across in her editing advice. Sometimes she’ll suggest single word changes that transform passages. At other times she will identify passages that need overhauls. She will prompt you into working that bit harder to make something okay into something great. This is really noticeable when I throw in a lazy sentence I have become blind to. I really appreciate the dedication, accuracy and speed with which Carmilla works. I’ve also learned a lot during all three projects.
So writers, if you’re considering an edit for your work. I have no hesitation in recommending Camilla Voiez. No matter what crimes you commit against grammar and punctuation, she will help you improve with constructive, meaningful feedback. Your manuscript will be the best it can be and you’ll become a better writer.

I asked Carmilla for her help with the submissions package for my psychological thriller. She found the single most important issue with my opening chapters, and her close reading pinpointed lazy prose that I'd missed. She was both brilliant and brutal with the dreaded synopsis. Brutal is high praise - it is rare to find an editor who gets straight to the heart of the problems, and without that we can't improve our work. The novel has a complex plot with two narrative strands and I couldn't see the wood for the trees. Carmilla was able to highlight all the areas where I was fuzzy and where I had not properly elucidated key plot points. Her clarity and focus helped to simplify the synopsis while maintaining the key story elements. I cannot recommend Carmilla's editorial services highly enough. She is a fine editor and has a strong instinct for prose, story and structure.
