What My Clients Say . . .
The following is a partial portfolio of editing jobs I've undertaken. Some manuscripts were picked up by publishing companies, some (with my help) chose to self-publish, and still others await publishing. I consider each and every one of these works an outstanding achievement and a great success. It was an honor to read these stories and a true privilege to help my clients work toward becoming better writers. (Click on the covers to find more information on each book.)
"I sing your praises Lisa. Looking forward to diving back into REMARKABLE and making it even better. Thank you very much for your help. Thank you for helping me improve this novel."
"Thanks for your input and I look forward to your guidance . . . guidance that will help me to improve. I'm impressed with your work and really appreciate it. I will sing your praises and pass on your name when requested of course. Anyway, great work and you have my trust and confidence and I'm most pleased. Thanks again Lisa.....you do outstanding work."
"I received the package late yesterday. I've read your overview and scanned it to Rick. I've also gone through the manuscript to get an idea of the scope of your notes. I think you've done an excellent job. Your notes are clear and thought out. Your observations are perceptive. Thanks again for all of your time and effort. We are thrilled with your work. We will keep you up-to-date on our publication process. And we will absolutely refer you to others looking for a fabulous editor."
"Your critique was spot on - and I agreed with just about 99% of what you suggested. I stayed up until midnight last night making the grammatical changes you suggested. I appreciated all of your suggestions. It is obvious you put constructive thought into all of your inputs."
"Thanks to Lisa Mottola Hudon who closely read, made suggestions, helped shape, and edited the words in various forms of the manuscript."
"Lisa, I have only briefly reviewed the edits but am thrilled so far, looking forward to improving my work as a result of your input."
"You did an excellent job, and I want to thank you for such attention to detail in editing my memoir. I can recognize a conscientious effort when I see one, and I appreciate your fine work. I intend to go to work rewriting it today.
You just can't understand, I realize, how much your support and your assistance has meant to me. You’'re a gem!"
"I would like to recognize my editor, Lisa Mottola Hudon, for her tireless efforts in editing and bringing this project to fruition and reality and for guiding me through my journey as a first time author. Many thanks for all you have done."
"Thank you so much. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I value your input and perspective as I look to grow as a writer and make the series as strong as possible."
"Just went through your edits and comments. You have such great perspectives and your eye is keen. I can go through a manuscript 900 times and still miss what you see. I read differently, I guess, right?
"By the way - great suggestions on both pieces. I've been struggling with the last lines for some time - had several versions - and then kind of gave up a bit. Needed it to sit awhile or someone else to read it...and there you were.
"I thank you as always for your observations. It is always helpful for me to see other interpretations. Most of the time when you point something out, I see how it can be improved, and I greatly appreciate that."
"Oh. thank you. Your summary comments make me cry happy tears!!"
"If I know of anyone the needs an editor I will surely recommend you. You have been on top of this and in contact reliably. I sincerely appreciate that."
"Thank you to my editor, Lisa Mottola Hudon. She did the hard work.
You are my Editor for life . . ."
"Wow! Thank you so much! I've only just started to glance through, but you were so thorough! Some of the things you picked up on I absolutely never would have. I really appreciate your feedback, both positive and constructive! Thanks again, so much for your feedback. You catch everything!"
"Just read through your notes. Great insight, especially on plot and emotional clarity."
