Testimonails

Naomi is my best editor and invaluable. Her work is excellent, and I really rely on her skills, expertise, and gentle but wise editing hand. [She is] a consummate editor, with excellent attention to detail and a full repertoire of top-notch editorial skills. I wholeheartedly recommend her to any publishing house looking for an editor with the highest level of professional skills and experience, as well as to authors in need of various types of editing for their books, from comprehensive structural editing to proofreading.

I pride myself on my own copyediting skills, but I bow in awe before you! The job you did on our book is nothing short of remarkable, and I thank you for it.

— John Wiley Jr.

Naomi is dependable, hardworking, and efficient. She often returns projects early, even those that require extra time and effort. Naomi is easy to work with and is my first choice for copyediting.

— Lara Hahn

Naomi Burns provided expert assistance in tightening my manuscript for publication by Ohio University Press. Without her detailed and methodical review, the quality of my prose and my arguments would have needlessly suffered.

— Edward J. Roach

I worked with Naomi on an edited volume, so she was responsible for reviewing a dozen chapters written by different authors (with very different styles and writing quality). Throughout the entire process Naomi was prompt, professional, and provided high-quality work. She stuck to all of the deadlines, provided extremely valuable copyediting, and was amenable to feedback and suggestions. I would definitely work with her again!

— Dr. Jessica Nicklin
