How often does anyone compliment you on the work you are doing or have done? My guess is seldom. So I've decided to compliment myself through the words of others.

 

 

I am Moneysaver Editing. I have been doing this now for approximately 3 years and I have decided, just before editing a new manuscript, that it is time for me to toot my own horn. Why would I do that? Why not…. How often does anyone toot your horn for you. My guess is never; so here goes….

This is a very recent comment from a local writer of the romance genre. I just finished her first manuscript a few days ago. This is what Mary Ellen has to say about me…

“I read your interview at Sanctuary and it was great. I just wanted to let you know that I'm very happy with your work and for the first time in years I feel like a writer. I wanted you to know that. Because that's how you make me feel. I appreciate that. So does the husband. lol He believed in me before but that was because I'm his wife. You validated his encouragement. Thank you. I want to get this book right and dig into my other two. Thanks for the encouragement.” Mary Ellen

Here we have a comment from my pal, Julius Thompson, a great writer, in my opinion, who has written four books to date. I have had the privilege of editing all four of them. We have become a true team by every sense of the word.( I feel that every writer should consider establishing a tight bond with their editor. It’s not just about writing a book. It’s not just about editing a book. It’s about writing and editing together as a team, that’s just my opinion.)

"...In fact, the search lasted ten long, long years!

I remember reading how F. Scott Fitzgerald found a fantastic editor (Maxwell Perkins) and it made the difference in his writing.

I was able to find someone who not only could edit, but made me a better writer.

An editor is a critical component in the development of a writer and I thank God everyday for sending me Dennis De Rose from Middletown, New York. Ghost of Atlanta (National 2011 Gold Medal Winning novel) and Purple Phantoms are fantastic books because of my editor and friend...Dennis De Rose!

This is what I wrote about Dennis for a national website:

"Dennis De Rose is a fantastic superb book editor! He takes your words and ideas and makes them better. I have been looking for ten long years to find a great editor and I found one: Dennis De Rose! When Dennis finishes editing a book, it is tighter, leaner and it flows. Incredible! If you are a writer you must get Dennis De Rose before his client list is filled!!!!"

 

From Yvette Monet, writer of “Loves Fire Burns Deep”…

"If you are looking for an editor that will not try to make your manuscript his own, then I recommend Dennis De Rose. He was my editor on my very first published book, Love's Fire Burns Deep. Also, if you're looking for the best price for your budget then try MONEYSAVER EDITING.”

From Stephen Rase, the writer of a book that I called Teacher at the time of editing (not the actual title)…

“After your editing suggestions I began to seriously reappraise my work and focused on making it more readable, and as you described, "less dense." There are many sections that I have rewritten and revised and I think it looks much better and is more clear. I also added another layer to give it more cohesion and clarity and it has helped me to pull all the many elements of the book together. I would like you to look at it again soon for another edit. What would you think about that?

I really appreciated your editing, even though it wasn't at first what I wanted to hear. When I got over my initial feeling of discouragement, I kept slogging along until I found what I was looking for. Your advice has proved invaluable and resulted in my being a better writer.

From Paul Emmekwulu, author of “Goal Setting”(not necessarily the final title)….

“Many are called but few are chosen. I said that to say that there are

many editors out there. If you choose Dennis for your editing needs,

you have nothing to lose. You have a lot to gain. He knows his onions.

You will surely discover for yourself that one good turn deserves another.

I recommend him.”

From Kane, writer of “Aleron”a new vampire saga…

"As a writer, it is very important to have an excellent editor. An editor that is not only a master of the English language and it's syntax, but also one that cares about and understands your story. Dennis gets involved with making your book the best it can be. He's not there to re-write your thoughts, but simply there to make your thoughts clearer to your potential audience. A great editor indeed."

From Dave Karwoski, a great writer of short stories with a book coming out soon…

"Dennis has edited work for me, I found him to be outstanding, and an improved in the story read by his suggestions. I have worked with three editors and Dennis is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to work with, and look forward to several more projects with him. I recommend highly for any literary work you need to be edited, copy-edited, polished or ready to send to a publisher for submittal.

From Carrie Williams, writer of “The Adventures of Kayla and Emma”…

“I recently used Dennis at Money Saver Editing to edit my second book, The Adventures of Kayla and Emma. He did a wonderful job, and did it quickly. I find Dennis’s quality of work to be very professional and efficient and trust his work completely. I have recommended him to other authors I know and will continue to do so and use him for any future editing needs. If you are looking for a great editor to make sure your written work is ready to go, then do your self a favor and put it in Dennis’s very capable hands.”

You know the old saying, “eight is enough”. I have more but this will have to do for now. I hope I haven’t bored you too much. Feel free to let me know what you think…. God bless.
