  • From —S. Mason

    I've had the privilege of knowing Catherine Foster as far back as 2010, when the now defunct website Perfect Imagination offered contact to beta readers. My previous editor, a personal friend of mine, had to retire due to time constraints so I was new to requesting help from an outside source. I was nervous about trusting my writing to someone I'd never conversed with before, but I took a chance after narrowing Catherine down as the most eligible candidate from the selection of proofreaders.

    Years later and I can't fathom working without her. Catherine's input over the course of my career has become invaluable to the improvement of my writing. The deliberation she's taken to explain her alterations to me are clear and concise. Turnaround on revisions is very reasonable, not to mention Catherine updates me on her progress during every step. Her grasp of word choice, punctuation, and grammar has kept my writing legible without sacrificing my individual style.

    Whether a writer is creating for work or pleasure, Catherine can be counted on to accommodate everyone. If you or someone you know requires a skilled, dedicated editor they can rely on her consideration and professionalism. Catherine's level of proficiency at editing makes her an excellent choice.

What is coming next?

An exciting new concept that will benefit the whole writing community.
