I have never used an editor before and was not sure what I would get. However, I have been very pleasantly surprised. I am hoping to write another book in the next few years and when it is completed I will certainly look to making use of your services.
I think I got your details from Amazon.com.
Your free sample gave me confidence that you would do a good job.
It was only when I got the completed job (which I have reviewed ) that I was able to appreciate the full value of a well edited document.

About the author – Brian Read
Brian has lived his whole life in South Africa. He was born at the close of the Second World War in 1945.
One of the most significant things he learned at school was how to smoke. In those days, the early 1960’s, the harmful effects of smoking were largely unknown. His mother always warned him that if he smoked he would grow up to be short like his Grandfather. Although this had some effect it was not enough to stop him. Once he passed five foot two, his Grandfather’s height, he pretty much stopped worrying about this.
He gave up smoking for the first time in 1962. This only lasted for about six months. By this time he had finished school and smoking was socially well accepted. Smoking in aircraft, cinemas and any other public places was the norm. He never considered that there might be any serious need to give up.
It was only in the 1980’s that he made his second serious attempt to quit. This time he remained free for about six years. His last attempt was in October 2011 and he has remained free since.
After leaving school he studied agriculture and soil conservation engineering finally ending up working as an environmental consultant.
He is now semi-retired although he still works part-time as a freelance consultant.
