Clients’ response:

“We’ve been selling the book for 2 1/2 weeks now. So far we’ve sold 150 copies. I wasn’t sure how many to print so we started with just 100. They sold out the first week so we went into a second printing. It’s looking like we’ll need a third. Olive sat at a table and signed books while I handled the money. The quality of the printing is very good and we were able to add a 10 page picture insert which turned out well.”

“Court is a top-notch editor and surpassed all my expectations as a client. Glad to have found someone so reliable and helpful I can trust with my manuscript. Highly recommended!”                                  -Isaac Jorgensen

“Court was great to work with and he has a deep knowledge. I appreciate his encouragement and guidance during my writing process. I highly recommend Court if you’re seeking an editor.”

“As a newcomer to book publishing I was delighted to work with Court Dudek as a very professional and competent editor and proofreader. Court read my manuscript and looked at it macroscopically and microscopically. He made suggestions about strengths and weaknesses and provided me with an overall assessment of my manuscript. Both new writers and the more experienced would benefit from Court’s careful and detailed editing services. I highly recommend his services.”   Rob Douglas author of He Speaks Our Language (Ark House).
