Joan is a thoughtful, compelling, and interesting writer. She is also the one I have always turned to for that final edit of my written work – from resumes, letters of application, magazine articles, stories, plays, and even a middle-grade novel. Joan’s technical expertise, her creativity as a writer and her keen eyes set her apart. And her insights into a writer’s intent make her uniquely qualified to polish any and all sorts of writing. Her skill set, her professionalism, and her drive to “make it perfect” qualify her as the best editor one could possibly hope for.

I cannot thank Joan enough for her excellent job editing my first book, a suspense novel. She was thorough, insightful, and accurate with her suggestions for revisions. Joan is intuitive and made recommendations to bring out my best work, while supporting the truth in my writing. She carefully edited my book for writing style, as well as plot and character development.  As an editor and writer, she understands the process of writing and the need for the story to engage the reader right from the first page.  I look forward to working with Joan on my second novel.

Joan Graham was copy editor for our recently published book. Joan edited our book with care and is most knowledgeable and precise. Joan was pleasant and supportive throughout her editing of our manuscript. She made corrections and recommendations that produced a book of which we are proud. She worked in a timely manner and returned our edited manuscript to us on the promised delivery date. We are pleased to recommend Joan as a fine copy editor.

If you have written a book that is ready to be sent to a publishing firm, the first thing you must do is have someone completely edit it before your submission. That’s where you must have my friend Joan Graham step in. I highly recommend Joan. She edited my entire memoir and by the time it arrived at the publishers it needed very little additional editing. Joan also edited my three children’s books which have been published. Joan is inspiring, respectful of your work and, in my estimation, has the uncanny ability and skill to be the best book editor, be it for a magazine article, newspaper, etc. Joan will be on board when my fourth children’s book needs editing.
