Janet's testimonials

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.
