“Sian has worked with me on the whole of my DCI Warlow series and has played no small part in making it the success that it has become. Quick, responsive, just the right amount of common sense comments, all designed to identify those holes, sharpen up the manuscript and pick up my typos and punctuation gaffes. Rapid release means we both have to be on our toes, but it’s been a smooth process so far and long may it continue. Diolch yn fawr, Sian.”
Rhys Dylan, Author
“Working with Sian on my latest novel has been nothing but a joy. When I was looking for a new editor, Sian came highly recommended by a few authors, and I haven’t been disappointed. She edited my book quickly and did a wonderful job. It’s impossible as an author not to have those annoying little typos and she picked up all of these, plus a few more things I hadn’t even considered. Her attention to detail is incredible, and her notes and ideas on the novel were extremely helpful. After working with Sian, the writing flows better, the structure makes more sense and it’s just a better book. Every novel needs to be edited by a professional and if you’re looking for someone, I recommend Sian Phillips. I’ll be working with her on all my novels going forward. ”
Jon Rance, Author
“A hugely successful author recommended Sian, and I’m grateful for that, as she’s edited both of my books to a super high standard. Sian understands my writing style and has made many brilliant recommendations, as well as dealing with the editing issues. I feel I’m fortunate to have found Sian to edit my work, and I know she’s made an immeasurable positive difference to the overall performance of my books.
Sian, thank you for your super professionalism, attention to detail and helping me develop as a writer.”
Adrian Cousins, Author
“Where do I start? I am a new fish, swimming in an enormous pond (nay, an ocean) of authors with much more experience, savvy and grit than I could ever hope to possess. Drowning, I threw my book into the air, hoping a kind soul would toss me a life vest (and a red pen for all those unnecessary comma’s.) Enter Sian… editor extraordinaire! Her attention to detail, effortless charm, and ability to understand what I was trying to say (even when I didn’t!) is what makes her a standout in a very crowded field.
Sian sharpened my manuscript (without severing the ‘tone’ of my words) and even picked up a few developmental flaws I was blind to. I feel very fortunate to not only have found a trusted professional to help hone my craft, but a special and cherished friend. Thank you, Sian!” Quinn Noll, Author
“Sian is super efficient and her proofreading is second to none. Sian spotted several issues in my manuscript, a book that had already been through several rounds of developmental editing, copy editing and proofreading, illustrating her excellent attention to detail. We’ll be working together on all of my future books! Thank you, Sian!” Paul Ian Cross, Author
“Sian’s keen eye for even the tiniest of errors and her highly professional attitude are why I keep coming back to her. She has proofread several books for me and each time it has been an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Excellent communication and affordable prices. Highly recommended!” Chris Thorndycroft, Author
“It’s not easy to find an editor. I wanted one who was patient and understanding, efficient and eagle-eyed, not too patronising or condescending, and, perhaps most importantly of all, cheap (no, not cheap. I meant to write value for money. My mistake.)
What I got, however, was Sian.
Wait. Let me finish. She’s all of the above and more. And a little bit more after that. No hassle, no stress, no worries. Highly recommended.” David Codd, Author
“The smartest thing I did this year was to ask Sian Phillips to edit my novel. Not only is she thorough – with an excellent eye for detail – her helpful and spot-on suggestions for plot improvement make all the difference, turning an okay story into something special. If you are looking for an editor, Sian should definitely be your first port of call.”
Sheila Rawlings, Author
“Having had some less-than-great experiences with previous editors, I hired Sian to work on my fifth book. The whole process was a stark contrast to my previous experiences as Sian turned around my manuscript within the deadline and did a superb job tidying-up my haphazard prose. I would definitely recommend Sian’s service and I look forward to working with her again on my next book.”
Keith A. Pearson, Author
“Sian has now proofed four full-length novels for me. I call her ‘Hawkeye’. She has an incredible eye for detail and an encyclopaedic knowledge of grammar, spelling and punctuation. Not only that, she is great fun to work with, can work to tight deadlines, is highly self-motivated and enthusiastic.”
Matt Johnson, Author
“Sian was recommended to me by an already published author. As a debut author, I had no idea what to expect from the editing process nor what was expected of me. I was up against a hugely (nay, overly) ambitious deadline for submission and I ended up sending her a far from finished manuscript while I continued to write. Sian was the epitome of patience and understanding. Not only did she polish my manuscript ready for publication, she helped educate this fledgling author on the process as we went. I highly recommend Sian to anyone looking for a professional editor who is not only excellent at her job, but a pleasure to work with to boot.”
Sam Cox, Author
“Sian copy edits all my landing pages as well as some other bits and pieces that I need for my business. She always delivers fast and finds all those little errors I make. She’s highly professional.
I’d highly recommend Sian for any proofreading and copy editing work you require. I write a lot of content. If only I could use Sian every time I press publish. Sadly I’m not ahead of myself enough to get her to proof and copyedit my blog posts. “
Amanda Webb, Spiderworking
“They say that practice makes perfect. Sian Phillips was our Managing Editor at TweakYourBiz.com. She has proofed, edited and revised thousands of our contributor articles and across a vast array of different subject matter. She ensured that our content was of the highest standard and our international audience grew significantly under her stewardship. She is a proofreader and editor of the very highest standard and works exceptionally well with people and tight deadlines.”
Niall Devitt, Co-Founder at TweakYourBiz.com
“Sian has an eye for copy and is a skilled editor and proofreader. The work she edits for my marketing firm is flawless by the time she’s done with it, and I can trust her with even the most important projects.”
Susan Guillory, Egg Marketing
“Sian recently did a final proofread of my book ‘Wikipedia as a Marketing Tool.’ She saved me quite the embarrassment as she found simple errors that had been overlooked before. I can see why her other clients call her ‘Hawkeye’. I needed the work done urgently and Sian went out of her way to fit this in. Sian’s proofreading skills and work ethics impressed me so much I am now employing Sian for future projects.”
Mike Wood, LegalMorning
“Having worked with Sian since 2010 on the accountancy side it was obvious to also ask her to proofread my website as I knew her attention to detail was strong, whether it is numbers or words. I can heartily recommend Sian for her proofreading services but hope she still keeps up the accounting with me.”
Tom Holmes, Ballymount Accounting
Even the best writers will admit they “err” and will need someone to check their work. When looking at your own writing you become word-blind and can miss even the simplest errors.
