Clare was a dream come true. She was extremely helpful in editing my manuscript. It reads 100% better now that it’s had the once over by Clare. I am so glad I followed my first thought and hired her. Thanks so much, Clare. You’re the best!!!

“Clare was fully engaged during the editing of my two projects. She went above and beyond in terms of getting my manuscripts edited and finished in a timely manner. Her attention to detail was inspiring and her instincts for good writing and continuity were impressive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clare to others in the future. “
With Clare, the editorial communication process I had was professional and supportive. I hired her to edit my manuscript after many drafts and she gave it the attention it needed.
I would definitely hire Clare again and highly recommend her for any editorial service.

Marie edited my manuscript and I am delighted with her input and suggestions. I am very happy that I placed my manuscript in the safe hands of Editing Services.

Clare is a great editor. I received my manuscript with the right changes that did not take away the pace of the story. She gave me some great tips as well and you can see she is focused on improving your manuscript and not looking to make an extra buck out of a client. I totally recommend her and I am sure to bring more of my writing her way!

Thanks for achieving this and thanks for your persistence. Pages written are not the same as the edited version – you made it happen!

I’ve just had the pleasure of working with Clare Keogh of Editing Services here in Dublin. Her sharp, eagle eye caught mistakes on my feature length script that myself and numerous readers had missed. Her comments and suggestions were very well considered and astute. Her passion for great writing equals her vast knowledge. I recommend her highly to any fellow screenwriter who needs the gaze of an industry professional to give their work that final polish. I very much look forward to working with Clare again.

The work she delivered for me was of the highest quality. Her client care is excellent and I really enjoyed working with her. I would highly recommend Clare and Editing Services.

To my daughter, Ariel, who first heard this faerie-tale I had bouncing around in my head when it was still in its infancy. And to my son, Kristopher, who has yet to hear it.
I further want to acknowledge my editors who helped me throughout my writing process; Ms. Connie Williams of Lamesa, TX and Ms. Clare Keogh of Dublin, Ireland I couldn't have done it without you. You both are truly brilliant.Thank you!
