“Kayti has reworked multiple blurbs for me that were from previously published books. She does a fabulous job each and every time! I can’t recommend her enough.” Monica Murphy, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author

“Working with Evident Ink gave me what I was looking for—solid content suggestions, comments on things that were working well, and steered me to push harder through that final edit. I put out a book that I not only love, but am proud of.” SL Scott, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

“Nancy is insightful, sharp, thorough, and always a pleasure to work with. She’s a consummate professional who takes stress out of the editing process because I know I can trust her. I recommend her without reservation.” Laurelin Paige, New York Times and internationally bestselling author

“Becca is not only thorough, but her ability to creatively problem solve is unmatched. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who will listen!” – Staci Hart, Bestselling Author

“Nancy is meticulous, thorough, and incredibly easy to work with. Her edits are smart and clear, and her turnaround time is fantastic. I’m extremely picky about editing, and I recommend her highly.” – Melanie Harlow, USA Today Bestselling Author

“Becca’s instincts about story and character are spot on. She understands the structure and pacing of a romance perfectly. Not only did she recognize exactly where I’d made missteps, but offered suggestions for correcting them in order to keep the tension high and the romance hot. Sometimes I thought she knew my characters better than I did! I couldn’t have written IF YOU WERE MINE without her feedback. Highly recommended.”Melanie Harlow, USA Today Bestselling Author

“I’ve worked with Becca before and she did an amazing job for me. Can’t recommend her enough!”Nina Levine, USA Today Bestselling Author

“I’ve had experiences with numerous freelance editors in this business, so trust me when I say that you can never be too careful when choosing a partner to make your work shine. Anyone can hang out a shingle and call themselves an editor—but Nancy has the credentials to back up the title, and is a gem to work with! She’s helped make my writing better, and I look forward to working with her on additional projects in the future.” – A.J. Matthews, Romance Author

“Becca straight up midwifed my book. She saw Beast for what it could be and helped me make it what it was supposed to be. She knew my characters inside and out, fixed holes in the story I *felt* but couldn’t see yet. She was quick to answer questions and tore into my book in the best. Way. Ever. I will never not give her one of my books. Becca is indispensable.” Mary Catherine Gebhard, Romance Author

“As a new author trying to navigate the writing world I learned one thing quickly; find a professional critique partner and editor. Nancy is both of these things. She finds mistakes, helps you reword sentences, and points out plots holes like no other. Her attention to detail and creativity is unparalleled. I know one thing for certain; I won’t consider a book “completed” until she has looked it over.” – Paul R. Hewlett, Children’s Author

Commercial:

“Nancy and I have worked together for over a decade.  She was my ‘go to’ writer at my former company and is the same now at my current employer.  I think one of the highest compliments you can give someone is to continue working with them for years.  And that is how I see Nancy.  Among her many positive attributes are flexibility — able to write across a variety of mediums and in different voices as needed; professionalism– in her interactions with other members of my staff and has worked directly with physicians as well; and efficiency — jobs often come in before deadline. I even referred her to my brother to edit his book and he was equally pleased with Nancy’s work.” – Kathleen O’Guin, Director of Corporate Communications, Molina Healthcare

“I have used Nancy Smay for her writing and editing services since 2006. In that time, she has been tasked with creating press releases and brochure copy for a variety of jewelry lines and events. She is quick, professional, and adept at taking a few key points and developing purposeful messaging to help promote our brands. Her skills have always exceeded my expectations. I would recommend her highly.” – Steven Zale, CMO, Zalemark Holding Company, Inc.

Non-Fiction:

“Nancy edited a book for me and was outstanding. Nancy did far more than just correcting all of my typos and grammar, but helped eliminate duplication and reorganize sections. For example, to improve the book’s readability, she suggested and then consolidated two chapters. In addition, Nancy has a gift with words. She will make your writing more expressive, by replacing dull verbs and adjectives with more descriptive ones.” – Michael O’Guin, Knowledge Link
