“Working with Shayla Eaton was a delight. Not only did she edit my book, she thoroughly walked me through the edits and discussed the changes with me. I felt like 100% of her focus was on my book and my book alone. I appreciated how available she made herself during the process. I also benefited from a personal marketing and social media session. She suggested changes that have improved my overall sales and gave me a broader social media reach. I intend on using Shayla’s services again in the near future.”

— M. L. Gardner, Bestselling Author of 1929

Shayla added a personal touch to the editing process. I loved the Skype chat discussion. This was a good final step to troubleshoot problem areas in the manuscript. And she knows her editing rules. I was impressed with the side notes on why she flagged certain pieces. In addition, Shayla was excellent in keeping the voice of the author or aka—the voice of the characters in a fiction book. I would highly recommend Curiouser Editing. Five stars on turnaround time and personal interaction with the editor!

—Stacy Hendrickson, Author of The Mason List

Handing over my first novel was like digging my heart from my chest and buckling at the knees while it was pried from my hand. After a sworn month of biting nails, cringing fingers, and tantrums of anxiety, the hopes and expectations of my edits were outdone! Shayla Eaton’s copyedit and feedback were more than I expected, and now I call myself an undercover marketing agent for Curiouser Editing because every writer needs what they have to offer. To Shayla and Curiouser Editing, thank you for diving into the fantasy of my novel and exterminating all of my commas. I’ll be back soon with novel two.
