Testimonials: 2017 Best Book Award Winner–Fiction African American

Her encouragement, industry knowledge, inspiring emails, and hilarious comments kept me going

I found editors4you in 2013 during an Instagram search for editors. I was an eager debut author with a completed first draft that, I soon found out, was in shambles. Gail, the sweetest person you would ever meet, told me in the kindest, yet brutally honest way, that we had a lot of work to do! Referring to Gail as just my editor doesn’t do her justice. She is my editor, my mentor, and writing coach. And while we dissected an 80,000-word rough draft, we developed a bond that only she could make me focus and ‘do the work’ to put it back together again. It was hard and extremely challenging, but her encouragement, industry knowledge, inspiring emails, and hilarious comments kept me going. Gail is no longer just my editor; she is a true friend (who I still contract with to edit my work). We’ve got one book under our belt and many more to come—Bianca Williams,  Sidelined: The Draft. 2017 Best Book Award Winner–Fiction: African American.
