Client comments and recommendations

“As an editor, Jill Yoder is meticulous with details. She has a natural, innate talent for editing, and I would, and do, trust her with all my work. To date, Jill has edited a short story cycle, two children’s books, and a plethora of short stories, with four more collections and a novel slated yet this year. She is a line and copy editor extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her.”

Julie Kusma, Queen of Horror Author of Stuck That Way and Other Quandaries, Pigglety Pigglety Poo, Unbind, and Shift.

“I am thrilled by the work Jill Yoder carried out. Carefully considered edits, given in a very helpful and constructive way, along with genuinely interesting feedback on best use and alternatives. I’ll certainly be asking Jill to edit my next work.”

Derek R. King, author of Natyre Boy, Noir, The Life and Times of Clyde Kennard.
