Why use Polish Point Editing?
Elizabeth Maynard Garrett was a primary editor for my second book, Heart of Courage: The Red Ruby Story, and I was pleased that an Amazon reviewer complimented the “excellent editing.” This reviewer explained that when she reads a sample, editing issues can kill her purchase. It is rare to get praise for editing in a review. Elizabeth’s professionalism, enthusiasm, and pleasant demeanor also provided a comfortable working relationship.

I highly recommend Elizabeth Maynard Garrett for line editing, and copy editing fiction, and non-fiction of any length. She is detailed, and accurate in every respect, always respecting the writer’s voice. Elizabeth is, without doubt, the best contractor I’ve worked with. She meets every deadline, and follows up to ensure the project is completed to the client’s satisfaction.

Elizabeth Maynard Garrett works closely with the author as though each book were her own, celebrating the joint effort toward excellence – all in a pleasant, timely, and efficient manner. Writing devotionals presents challenges all its own. Elizabeth respected my unique approach in “The Essence of Courage,” asked the right questions to bring clarity to every page, and offered creative, and helpful suggestions to enhance the work further. My “right-hand advisor” throughout the project believed it couldn’t get any better. All she could say after reading the final edited version was, “WOW!”

I have worked with some really good editors over the years, but Elizabeth goes way beyond excellent. She doesn’t just look for grammar and punctuation errors. She challenges me, asks the right questions, and makes suggestions. We may not agree on everything, but the things we do not see eye to eye on, we work out. It’s important for a writer not to lose his voice in making changes or compromising. I write in my own style, which Elizabeth recognizes and appreciates. She helped improve my latest novel, and she has also helped me become a better writer.

I’m so grateful I was referred to Elizabeth! Her professionalism, talent and guidance throughout the editing process made me feel at ease with my first book. As a new author, I appreciated her encouragement to help bring out my best. She is truly someone to put her heart and soul into helping others and their books come to life! I highly recommend her to anyone!

I have known Elizabeth for approximately two years. I have found her to always be professional without losing a personal touch. In addition, she exemplifies extraordinary intelligence, good work ethics, business integrity, expediency and confidentiality.
The Media Arts Training Center contracted Elizabeth as a manuscript editor. In this capacity she provided basic proofreading for two published books. Her work included correcting typos, punctuations, and grammatical errors. She also served in the capacity of heavy editing, critical analysis and consultation as well as line editing.
As a result of my relationship with Elizabeth, whatever publications I produce in the future I will seek the professional services of Elizabeth Garrett.
