"Laura Long did an absolutely fantastic job in editing the book ... We only thought we were ready to publish, but after her work on the manuscript, we realized we were no where near ready. She is extremely thorough and detailed from the first page to the last. I would highly recommend her services before you consider submitting your manuscript to any publisher."

--Sarah Sutton, Assistant to Rev. Thompson
