Janet's testimonials

I’ve been a professional editor for over 20 years and have often suggested that potential clients hire Janet, as her reputation precedes her. So when it came to hiring someone to edit my own writing, I thought of her immediately. Her logic and excellent good sense has improved my writing immensely.
I can see why clients love her!

I asked Janet MacMillan for a linguistic revision of the English style of my book Regionalism in Hard Times (Routledge, 2016). She not only did her job perfectly, but also on time – interplaying with me on a regular basis. Given her outstanding competence in social sciences, she took care of every single detail of the book contents as well, providing me with invaluable input of many suggestions to improve the clarity of my manuscript. I have already published 10 books in English; well, she was the most competent and serious reviser ever.

In 2010 I had a book-length memoir published in the United Kingdom. To my great good fortune the publisher enlisted Janet MacMillan to edit the completed manuscript. I enjoyed the editing process very much and learned some important lessons in both writing and self-editing that have proved invaluable to my subsequent work. Janet was prompt, efficient, incisive, intelligent, well informed and very professional in all that she said and did. Despite her expertise and knowledge she displayed a delightful sense of humour throughout the entire editing process and also showed her compassion and humanity where such was required. I was very fortunate indeed to make the acquaintance of this remarkable lady – and even more fortunate to now know Janet as a most liked and respected friend. In her field of expertise, Janet, in my opinion, is the best there is to find.'

As I approached my submission date with Routledge for a new book on mindfulness, consumerism and the political economy of attention earlier this year [2017], there was one urgent and outstanding task: a final edit of the entire manuscript. Within hours of beginning my search for someone who would meet my needs for professionalism, expertise and availability at short notice, the name of Janet MacMillan, was presented without hesitation by her peers. I am delighted to recommend Janet’s work, which was delivered without fuss, with good humour, and with perfect timing. Thank you Janet.

When we won the contract to produce an important law book for a prominent client, we knew the proofreading and editing were going to be crucial; in other words, we needed a safe pair of hands. Janet is the safest pair of hands you can find – her attention to detail is second to none and her experience in the legal business gives her a unique insight that ensures copy is not only correct, but also makes sense to the reader. Janet was a great find for us – we couldn’t have produced the book to the level we did without her expertise.

During the final stages of the editing of my book, Janet ran her thorough and thoughtful eye over the manuscript and made a significant contribution to tidying up the syntax and making the whole much more readable than it was formerly. She worked to a tight deadline and was always very pleasant to deal with. Her changes were not invasive but nonetheless made a big difference to the final text. I have since worked with her on an academic article and, again, she was able to work quickly, made subtle changes to the text to make it more effective and was a joy to communicate with.

I worked with Janet when preparing a recent article for publication in a top-ranked journal within my field of research. Her editorial help and advice were crucial in completing the work to standard, and her ability to grasp and clarify the core argument of my piece impressed me greatly. The questions she asked were always intelligent and her suggestions spot on. Precise, constructive, elegant, the improvements she introduced were also creative and sharp. I would wholeheartedly recommend her professional assistance.
