Bree Crowder is an editor who doesn’t merely correct, but improves.
Every 5 star review my books receive are as much down to her hard
work as they are mine, and without her input my errors, both glaring
and benign, would escape into the world.

Iain Rob Wright

Bestselling Horror Author

I am so impressed and happy with Bree Crowder’s work. Her editing
skills are top notch. She communicated with me the whole time and 
provided feedback that I have never gotten from other editors. She
finished the job right on time and provided exactly what I was expecting.
I would recommend Bree to all!

Nicola Mar

YA Author & Essayist

Bree did exactly what she said she would, in the time and
amount of hours she estimated. When I added more work to the
project last minute, she was adaptive and tackled the new word
count with ease. Friendly, professional. Hire Bree.

Thomas A. Fowler

Fiction & Non-Fiction Author

Bree not only edited and proofed my children’s stories, she
also noted and then added flow and depth to my line structure.
My stories are enhanced for her efforts. I will absolutely be working
with Bree again.
