What People Are Saying

Holly delivered on every deadline and on every part of my MBA Capstone project. She is the second editor I used on this project, and the difference was night and day. She was fantastic.

—J. Van Diepen, President/CEO, Pestmaster Services Inc.

Like any other scholar, I was very reluctant to say “I need help,” and I needed help! My scientific paper needed reorganization and editing, and I was having a lot of problems. I was very impressed with Holly from the first moment. She presented a physics equation in such a natural way that I thought she had a PhD in physics; I thought she was reviewing my paper and checking the math! Holly exceeded my expectations of the client-provider relationship, and she took care of the most important things such as maintaining meaning in the context of the paragraphs and elegance in presentation with easy flow, while developing the composition. I can go on and on, but I only want to say that I certainly will use Holly’s services in the future.

For me, looking for a copy editor to work on my book—which was the result of four years of intense research—was not a matter that I could take lightly. My work was a rather special case, as it dealt with very different subjects, such as science and technology, medicine, drug discovery and development, business management, and public policy, so it was very difficult to find (and trust) someone who would feel comfortable enough working on this particular book and who would do the job well. In addition to this, the copy editor needed to deal with the fact that the book deals with a very controversial subject matter, namely, the high cost of medicine, and was not written by a native English speaker but by someone who came from a different culture with very different values. From the beginning, I was very impressed with Holly’s credentials and presentation. I just felt that she was the right person to work with, and I was not mistaken! Holly did an excellent job with my book and helped me to make of it a finer work. There were passages in the book that just seemed too long to me, and I was afraid the reader would get lost, but Holly helped me solve this problem by inserting some headings and polishing up some long paragraphs. She also made some very important criticisms (and suggestions) as a reader that helped me to transmit to the reader what I wanted to say in a much clearer and effective manner. She also helped me greatly with the book proposal and was very patient and helpful throughout the process.

I cannot but speak very highly about Holly’s work and her outstanding skill and professionalism. I will certainly be very happy to hire her services in the future and recommend her to anyone.

You helped me earlier in the year to review a chapter in my dissertation. I am happy to report that your effort produced an approval of my dissertation.

—E. Akinola, University of Phoenix

My paper’s numerous and long citations had to be transformed from meeting MLA specifications to meeting those of the Chicago Manual of Style. Faced with such a daunting task, I turned to the professional services of Holly Monteith. Holly exceeded my high expectations; she did a complete, accurate, and all-around fabulous job, within the requested timeframe. I received great value for my money and would highly recommend Holly’s services to anyone!

What People Are Saying

Her work was impeccable, and everything came back early. I cannot say enough about her editing skills and customer service.


I cannot thank Holly enough. We had an 83,000-word book that needed technical formatting in an extremely short time frame. Even though Holly was in the midst of other projects, she not only provided the formatting, but copyedited and revised two important chapters as well. Our publisher insisted the book strictly conform to Chicago style, and within minutes of our first conversation, it was clear that Holly practically knew the style guide by heart. Her work was impeccable, and everything came back early. I wish I had found her a month earlier so she could have copyedited the entire book. I cannot say enough about her editing skills and customer service.

—S. Bilheimer, author of Secret Suffering (Praeger, 2009)

Holly is a consummate professional. My project involved the editing and formatting of a submission for an academic journal. It was completed almost 3 weeks ahead of my original schedule! Great editing skills, and a thorough knowledge of style requirements. It’s refreshing to find someone who does quality work like this. Thanks, Holly!

—P. Moroney, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

Holly was wonderful! I had a very quick deadline and she worked with me to finish the project within the period I needed. She made the tables and figures in my document look great and made some excellent suggestions in my writing. I am very pleased.

Holly was FANTASTIC. She was SO thorough and submitted everything back to me earlier than I needed it! Even after she was done with the edit, I had some questions, and she was very speedy in her responses. I appreciate that she took time to answer my questions. She really went above and beyond! My paper not only needed to follow APA guidelines, but my university had guidelines as well. She did both perfectly.

—N. Foster, Trinity International University

Holly was exceptional! Her responsiveness and attentiveness to my written requirements were truly commendable. The challenges of completing a comprehensive dissertation can be very overwhelming; however, soliciting quality skills and services such as those provided by Holly are worth the expense. Words simply cannot express how much the assistance provided by Holly benefited me in this advanced studies process.

—L. Headen, University of Phoenix

If you are looking for someone to make your manuscript bulletproof, look no further. Not only was Holly’s editing superb but she made many insightful suggestions throughout my manuscript. In addition, her communication was fantastic. She replied to all of my e-mails within 24 hours, even after completing her edit. I cannot recommend Holly enough, and I personally look forward to working with her again in the future.
