"This was my first time sharing my manuscript with anyone other than close friends and family, so I was a little apprehensive at first. But from the start, Naomi was exceptionally professional, encouraging, and enthusiastic.

 

Her confidence as an editor was deeply reassuring, and was borne out by her thorough and exhaustive line edits. She was able to articulate problems I knew I had in a way that made me feel confident that I could address them, and she pointed out issues that I had missed altogether.

 

Her sincere investment in the work made me feel that I was doing something worthwhile, and that I had an ally in an otherwise solitary venture. She gave me a road map, which is just about the most valuable thing I could have asked for."
