Testimonials “Over the whole editing experience Gail has kept in touch, detailing every step”

I found Gail through a search for professional editors and was immediately sent to her website. As The Eden Tree is my debut novel, and having found a publisher, I was very pleased to find Gail. Letting another person look at and comment about my writing was a step of faith, but I found Gail’s explanation of her methodology and timescale suited me ideally, and her fees were fair. Over the whole experience Gail has kept in touch, detailing every step. The changes she has recommended have enhanced my novel. I look forward to working with her on my sequel – Peter Worthington, The Eden Tree (fiction, mystery/adventure)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “I’m blown away at how much my book has been improved!”

I’m very, very happy with the edit. The improvement is awesome and the writing flows much better. This is my first time using an editing service and it has been an excellent experience. I’m blown away at how much my book has been improved! – Kris Walters, The War on Smoking: A no B.S. approach to effectively quitting smoking (non-fiction, self-help)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “This has been a partnership as Gail has given encouragement and guidance in a very professional manner”

Gail of editors4you.com has guided me over the past year with four completely different projects, showing her exceptional talent as an editor and mentor and adapting to the different genres. Gail’s first project with me was editing my first book, Belongings, then subsequently assisting with a book outline and submission for Hay House Publishing, after I’d attended The Writers Workshop 2014 with Reid Tracy (President Hay House Inc.) and Leon Nacson (Managing Director Hay House Australia).

Belongings is a delicate subject, as the intended reader audience are the bereaved. Apart from editing the book, Gail proofread the final proof of the book after typesetting. She also adapted the book into four instalments for a USA website newsletter that reaches over 40,000 readers a month.

On an entirely different topic, Gail edited and assisted with the submission of a book of short stories about life on an outback farm for a Varuna Press writers’ residence program. She showed her professional attention to detail and asked questions about farm life in order to understand better some of the colloquialisms used.

I am dyslexic and the automatic spell checker often changes the meaning of the words I think are correct. We had a few funny moments, with Gail asking relevant questions to clarify my meaning.

With all the editing projects, Gail explained how to pace the chapters to create and maintain reader interest, she retained my author’s voice, made suggestions to change the order of chapters for easier reading, and always explained why she was making or suggesting certain changes to the manuscript.

I feel this has been a partnership, as Gail has given encouragement and guidance in a very professional manner, allowing me to give unconventional advice to readers in a clear format. Knowing that I had an experienced professional gave me the courage to be avant-garde in my writing. I am pleased to now have the finished book, which has exceeded my expectations.

Gail has an honest and insightful attitude to her editing. She always provides an expected timeframe and provides a competitive price for her high level of expertise and experience.

Thank you so much Gail for your inspiration and talent in honing the manuscript into the book I envisaged.

Anne Jennings, author of Belongings and Jillaroo and Animal Tails

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “Client-focused and dedicated to the project”

I am delighted to write this testimonial because Gail is a professional to her fingertips with an excellent command of English, rhetoric and grammar. Not only did she read my doctoral dissertation for errors and glitches, but she was gratifyingly sensitive to its nineteenth-century literary context. Gail is utterly client-focused and dedicated to the project. This dedication was demonstrated as she continued to work on my editorials despite facing major surgery last year. My thesis has now been recommended for publication…so should we find a publisher, I know exactly who will be editing the monograph. Merci beaucoup, milles fois, Gail.—Susan Laverick, Beyond the Point of Decorum: The political romances of Rosa Praed (doctoral thesis)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “Writers are crazy if they don’t use editors!”

Boy! Am I lucky! I approached Gail at editors4you.com to see if she would edit my manuscript. It’s a big step, and being a virgin at this writing business, I was scared and lacked confidence in my ability. Of course family and friends read my story with glowing reports. They are not trained editors, just people who love you, so what else could I expect? Gail was gentle, encouraging, honest, and totally professional and returned my work with fabulous suggestions. Unfortunately for Gail, but wonderful for me, I’ll be contacting her again to edit my next manuscript.—Janet R Berg (erotic fantasy) 

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “Your Support of me as a New Writer was Really Appreciated”

Thank you Gail at editors4you.com for all the wonderful work you have done on my manuscript Unravelled. I have absolutely loved the experience. All your feedback has been so positive and affirming and I have learnt a lot during the process. Your support of me as a new writer was really appreciated as were all the suggestions found on your website. It has been a really professional experience with a personal touch.  I only wish I had found you earlier. Thank you Gail, I look forward to working with you again in the future.—Suzanne Nicole, Unravelled in New York (contemporary romance)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “It was absolutely worthwhile to have a professional do the job”

I commissioned Gail from editors4you.com to copyedit and proofread my manuscript Holistic Medicine. Gail was very thorough and picked up many errors. It was absolutely worthwhile to have a professional do the job. I would recommend editors4you.com to help with your manuscript.—Dr Carol Head, Holistic Medicine: Beyond the Physical (non-fiction)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “When I show other writers the editing she has done for me they demand her contact details”

I wish I were a writer and an editor, but I’m just a writer and for that reason I use Gail Tagarro’s skills. (Let’s see, I wonder what is wrong with that sentence?) She raises questions about the things I need to consider changing and allows me to accept or reject her changes (I never have to reject). I always learn something new when she edits for me and when I show other writers the editing she has done for me they demand her contact details – Monica Coen (non-fiction self-help psychology, awaiting publication)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “Very impressed with the result“

I am a first-time author of the book Abacus, a crime thriller. Before approaching Gail at editors4you.com, I had previously had my book edited elsewhere with a very poor result. Because of this disappointing experience, I looked for another editor and found Gail  at editors4you.com. Gail worked to a tight time schedule to have Abacus ready for publication within my time frame. I am very impressed with the result. Gail is very approachable and gives excellent guidance. I have no hesitation in recommending her for your editing projects.

Josh Burton—Abacus: The Good Need Not Fear (crime thriller)

Editors Gold Coast Testimonials “Wonderful editor”

Gail at editors4you.com has an innate ability to take my raw words and put them into a form that is digestible for the reader. She is a wonderful editor and I will be working with Gail again in the future.
