Some clients and their testimonials

Apart from her extreme patience, Alexia Lawson is a fantastic editor. She took the shambles of a manuscript that I sent her and turned it into something magical. Lexi is fast, efficient and a dream to work with. Not only do I now have a masterpiece but I have a new friend as well. I can highly recommend her services to anyone requiring a professional editor.
Lee-Ann Baines, author of Over the Rainbow
The best experience of my young literary career has been working with Alexia. She has an excellent ability to guide me professionally from the point of view of the reader, yet still allow me the creative thought I crave. I can highly recommend her as the perfect editor, whether you are looking for a gentle nudge in the right direction or a wholesale re-write.

My book only became a book after it had been edited. You breathed life into my work.

I knew I wasn’t good at grammar, punctuation and often not even clear on what I had written. Lexi could see the book in the book and that’s how she edited, with attention to detail. It became clear to me that I got more than I bargained for! I could not have wished for a better and more thorough editor. Thank you so much Lexi for your hard work.  Sybe Starkenburg, author: The Tightrope of the Absurd (2016)

Lexi has been a wonderful editor for my manuscript. As an editor you have to dance on a really fine line between the writer’s vision and most appropriate way to describe something. Lexi is a great dancer and gently suggests changes where it matters. It takes not only practice but also a talent to feel for which bit of writing definitely needs work. I am lucky to have chosen her. She has also gone the extra mile and sought out a potential publisher for what is my first manuscript. Thank you Lexi!

When I interviewed editors for my fiction novel, The Immortal Life of Piu Piu, I chose Alexia Lawson.  She convinced me with her fine command of the English language, her sensitivity for the subject matter, and the precision of her work. Communicating with her is easy, delivery is prompt and her rates are fair. I am very pleased to recommend her editing services to all writers.

Bianca Gubalke, author: The Immortal Life of Piu-Piu. (Arteby Publishing, 2015.)

Good editors are very hard to find, and Alexia is every writer’s dream one. It took me five years of continuous search—from North America to Europe, and even to Oceania—to find her. And having paid wrong people for my work all along, it dawned upon me, once I read her first sample edit, that I had just met my first true editor. One knows immediately when their work was edited for the money and when it was handled with dedication and respect. The latter is what one is guaranteed to get from Alexia, in addition, of course, to pure talent and personal wisdom and intelligence, all of which explains why her work will always belittle—if unwittingly—that of your average editor.

During my journey with Lexi, I learned a great deal and she clearly understood what I was attempting to convey – she did not change my style and was open to further suggestions and changes that I made. Her changes and suggestions were not cast in stone and I believe a better manuscript resulted. Further, and what is more important, when I was feeling despondent about the book and thought of throwing in the towel, she encouraged me and urged me on. This is invaluable and assisted me greatly in completing the task that we had set.
I treasure the time we spent on the manuscript and would unhesitatingly approach her for any work I do as well as recommend her to others who seek an exceptional editor.
