Some references from happy clients:
*My message to all budding writers is: if you want your manuscript to be polished
and your words to have a beautiful fluency, then Lesley Jones is the copy editor for
you! She simply has a way with words that helps the writer's message come across
without sacrificing the author's original voice. She is meticulous, professional,
and caring with any project she undertakes.
*Lesley has been part of our extensive pool of freelance copyeditors and
proofreaders since January 2014. As one of the UK's largest trade publishers, Pan
Macmillan only commission freelancers who have extensive industry experience and/or
who have scored highly in our proofreading test - both criteria were easily met by
Lesley. The Editorial Services team have been greatly impressed by Lesley's
attention-to-detail and diligence. She has engaged excellently with the books she's
worked on for us and is always sensitive to the varied styles of our authors. Given
her confidence and professionalism, we've had no hesitation in commissioning her to
work on books by both brand-name commercial authors and literary stars (among them a
Pulitzer-winner). She is personable, flexible and great to work with."
