I love my clients! It's always gratifying and humbling to hear what they have to say about the work we do together—I only wish I could give them their own testimonials in return (say the word, folks, I'll be happy to!).

Jess Shulman is an extraordinary editor—everything a writer dreams of and wants. She handled my extremely complex manuscript on the globalization of food cultures—in four languages: English, of course, but also many words and phrases in French, Italian and Chinese. Jess is attentive to detail, flow, context and logic. She made a couple of my jokes even better, saved me from a tasteless gaffe or two, and fixed numerous errors of fact and grammar. She is a joy to work with, a true collaborator who is respectful, tactful, gentle, and articulate, and who meets every deadline. I highly recommend her.

Jess Shulman is the editor writers dream of finding. Her X-ray vision revealed the hidden weaknesses in my storyline and helped me zero in on elements I’d overlooked which, when addressed, made my book that much richer. On top of all that, she’s fun to work with, too!

Thank you so much for your superb copy editing of my book. I gave you what I was sure was a very clean manuscript, but you found and corrected dozens and dozens of errors, inconsistencies and other problems, large and small. I was especially impressed with your careful editing of the endnotes, which were very complex and required strict adherence to the Chicago Manual of Style.

Where there was more than one possible way to fix a problem, you identified that and clearly explained what you recommended and why. On top of that, you completed the project on time and on budget!

Your work was everything I could have asked for and more: the result is a manuscript that I am proud to send to my publisher. I have included thanks to you in the acknowledgements. If you ever need a recommendation I will be glad to give you five stars, and I will certainly use Jess Shulman Editorial again.

Thank you for your consummate patience and professionalism on this project. It dragged on and on (through no fault of yours!), but you stuck with it, kept things on track, and left the client happy. I couldn’t ask for more.

Special kudos to Jess—this is one of the best editing/proofreading jobs I’ve ever seen.

Jess is an exceptional writer, and the very best editor I have ever worked with—by far. She is wicked-smart, has great integrity, and is a strong leader and a strong project manager.
