I was delighted to have Petra proofread
my manuscript – the fifth edition of How to Market Books. No author likes
to think they need editing, and having the obvious errors (single noun, plural
verb – did I really write that?) pointed out can be a stressful, if not
humiliating experience. Petra was tactful and considerate throughout, and her
list of queries showed how deeply she was concentrating. At one point, while
going through her list, I had to resort
to a cup of tea in order to fully admire the extent of her engagement. In
short, my work was better for her involvement, and I am very grateful to Routledge
for allocating her to me.

Petra, thank you. I was under
pressure from my publisher and suffering 'second album syndrome' with my new
Your diligence and speed has
helped me feel much better about the whole affair. Not only that, I am
delighted that I was able to 'modify a noun' – I didn't know I had it in me.

Our experience with Petra Bryce has been very positive. She delivered a great end product with an excellent turnaround. I highly recommend her.
