"I hired another editor a couple years back before working with Julia and although I learned so much from the first editor about first time writer mistakes and honing my craft as a writer, Julia was just what I needed to get my manuscript to the next level. As an agent she has a keen eye for the industry, which is invaluable for any writer trying to break into the business. As an editor, I found her to have great instincts for pace and plot. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about becoming a published author." ~Leila O.

"I love your thoughtful and direct approach - it gets to the core of the issues while providing guidance on how to carve out the best possible story. You've given me insight into my query and first 20 pages that I never would've seen without your industry expertise and editing style. I struggled for months, trying to figure out where to start my story, but after your first round of edits it all clicked. I have a lot of revising to do based on your edits, but I'm eager to dive in with the tools you've provided me. Thank again for all your time and I hope to work with you again down the road." ~Cheryl S.

"I've worked with a couple editors in the past who did really good work, but Julia Weber's insights resonated the most. Her nuanced and detailed approach is just what I needed. She let me know what's working and not working in a way that I really didn't get from critique groups, writing forums, and other editors. I definitely plan on using her services again." ~Carly H.

But it is constructive criticism, insightful feedback that will help you get the best from your writing. Plus, it's advice that will stay with you for all future projects. So if you were at all unsure about the value of an editing process, you could view Julia's insight as a literary investment." ~Mark M.
