Comments from my readers
"Thank you for another set of tips to help clarify our wonderfully complex language! My Scrabbleฎ skills have improved since I began receiving your newsletter." Eddie Phillips
"Just a quick note to say how much I appreciate your newsletter and grammar tips. It's amazing after reading your tips and hints what comes back to memory from my school days. Thanks for helping virtual assistants present a polished and professional image in our business writing." Ruth Martin
"Thanks for the great tipsI always look forward to their appearance in my email. Keep up the great work!"
"As a writer and editor, I understand
the impact of polished writing, and Angela definitely knows how to put the extra
'sheen' on any piece. As someone I contract work to regularly, Angela is
consistent in her ability to retain the author's voice while doing more than
just checking for typos. She knows all the rules and regs of good writing, but
perhaps more importantly, she seeks to understand the message and then edits
accordingly. Angela Smith is a consummate professional
in everything she does, and I will continue to use her services and
recommend her to my colleagues."
"It's a joy to work with Angela―she's a professional in every sense of the word. Her work is outstanding, always better than it has to be and always delivered on time. Angela cares deeply about the service she provides and I'm thrilled to have her on my team." Read more...
"Angela, you are a genius! Knowing that you would go over my writing allowed me just to write instead of worrying about my grammar and punctuation. You saved me hours of rewritingand then still not getting it right in the end. Thank you so much for your great work!" Read more...
