"Andrea has worked with me on several manuscripts. I found her to be knowledgeable, responsive, collaborative, easy to work with, and a great partner in the effort. Thank you, Andrea, for your editing expertise and encouragement. I appreciate and value your literary investment in me and my books!"
~Nate Stevens, author of Deck Time with Jesus, 
God’s Secret Placeand Accelerate Your Destiny

"I enthusiastically recommend Andrea Merrell for your editing needs. I've hired her for several of my own projects, including book proposals and one complete book manuscript. Her work consistently reflects talent, patience, insight, and kindness. I’ll use her again and encourage you to do the same."
~ Dr. Rhett H. Wilson, Sr. 
Ghostwriter/Freelance Writer/Coach

"The editing was superb. I didn't make any notes, which almost never happens with me. So, either there were no errors, or I was too caught up in the story to mark them. Either way, well done." ~Posted by Kristi Cramer at Bounded in a Nutshell on Becalmed by Normandie Fischer. 

""  "Andrea Merrell is an expert craftsman with words and the nuts and bolts of grammar, sentence structure, and conventions of writing. I learned a tremendous amount through the process that I’ve applied to new manuscripts —to me, that alone is the mark of a talented editor when her efforts translate to other works. As a first-time novelist, Andrea made me feel worthy of her time. Her documentation was detailed, clear, and spot-on. In areas that needed discussion, we spoke often, and together made the best choices for the book’s success. She is a skilled people person and values relationships—her investment in the manuscript and author are evident." 

~ Jayme Mansfield, 
author of Chasing the Butterfly and Rush

"Andrea has been a great friend and mentor as I've begun contract editing. Her experience and skill set have been invaluable tools." 
~Betty Hassler, author and editor

“With the eagle eyes of a copy editor and the heart of a writer, Andrea Merrell finds not only the most obscure typos, but also awkward passages and missing gaps that need to be reworked. Her professional manner and encouraging feedback offer much help to the writer. She is a joy to work with.”  
~ Carol Stratton, author of Changing Zip Codes 
and Lake Surrender

"Andrea Merrell did a wonderful job editing my book this past summer. I was up against a self-imposed deadline, and she came through for me, finishing the job in record time. What I remember with fondness was how enjoyable our working relationship was, whether communicating by email or by phone (loved her southern accent!). She also assisted me with some last-minute changes and edits as well, helping to bring the book's completion to the perfect end. She was a joy to work with. I hope to meet Andrea some day and sit down with her for a heart-to-heart chat!"  
– Nancy Cavin Pitts, 
author of When You Come Home

"     "Andrea Merrell is the 'Queen of Commas!' Her sharp eye catches the smallest detail. When I was on a strict deadline, "Andrea devoted a full weekend to me, editing, double-checking POV, and keeping my thoughts in line. By deadline time, I had a perfectly edited manuscript. She is faithful, fast, and fantastic. I trust my work into her capable hands.” 

 ~Cindy Sproles, author of Mercy's Rain and Liar's Winter
editor, Christian Devotions Ministries

"     "Andrea Merrell wears the many hats of editor, writer, and author, so she knows how to speak a writer's language and gently suggest, advise, and coach authors to bring out the message of their heart. Am I ever grateful that she took my manuscript and skillfully coaxed my sometimes awkward phrases into coherent, catchy, and smooth sentences. Working with Andrea is a delight and a privilege, but you won't experience it for yourself until you partner with her on your next project." 
~ Michele Howe, author, reviewer, columnist
