"Hollie is truly one of a kind. I've worked with many different editors over the years and I've never met anyone who is so invested in their work. Hollie is so easy to work with that she walks that fine line between professional and friend. Deep down, she's a reader, so her suggestions are always from a reader's point of view, which to me, is exactly what I want. Hollie not only edited the heck out of my book and made me sound smarter, but she also champions her client's work. She goes above and beyond to help her clients succeed. I can't recommend her enough.”
—Jen Mann, NYT bestselling author

“I have been with Hollie Westring at Hollie the Editor editing services for years now and I can honestly say I couldn't live without her. Her meticulous attention to detail never fails to amaze me. She not only cares about each and every manuscript but also the authors she works with. I not only look at her for her expertise but also her ability to turn each story into something better. Working with Hollie isn't just about hiring someone to edit your book but is an opportunity to form a long-lasting working relationship.”
—Tiffany King, USA Today bestselling author

"Once you go Hollie, you don't go back! I'm not kidding. Hollie is amazing, and I could never be without her now (she's probably even correcting this testimonial for me). Her love of authors and books is obvious in the care, time, and detail she puts in. She wants to help make your story the best it can be, and she never ceases to amaze. She takes extra care and always seems to go above and beyond. I recommend bringing Hollie in your life. You will wonder how you got along without her before!"
—Stacey Marie Brown

“I’ve worked with multiple editors, and Hollie is superior by far. She is thorough, flexible, professional, and an absolute joy to work with!

She goes above and beyond every time to polish my stories and even offer extra suggestions or explanations that have helped me fine-tune my craft. It doesn’t get better than Hollie!”
—Nikki Jefford

“Hollie is extremely professional, on time, and all around amazing to work with. She's never been late, or disappointed. I highly recommend her for your editing needs!"
—Jen McLaughlin, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"Finding Hollie was such a blessing! Not only is she proficient and professional, but she has a knack for providing tips and tricks to help you learn from your mistakes WITHOUT making you feel alienated. She cares for your story as if it were her own, giving you the confidence and peace of mind to tend to your characters while she tends to the commas.”
—Michelle N. Files

"It was just over a year ago that I entered the world of indie as a scared 'can I really do this?' author. I nervously approached Hollie about being my editor, and she was more than happy to accept and help guide me on this journey.  Hollie is an absolutely awesome editor and an even more amazing person. She not only helps with your standard grammatical mistakes, but she also helps to make your books stronger by taking (or adding) certain words to make the entire novel stronger and flow smoother. I love knowing that Hollie is my editor, and I really feel I would be nowhere without her. Her rates are great, and her turnaround time is quick. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an editor!”
—Suzanna Lynn

"I first worked with Hollie on a project for a charity anthology. She could have cut corners, or done a half-baked job, but she didn't. She treated the charity anthology, to which she donated her time and skills, as if she was being paid top dollar for her work. I was very pleased with her professionalism, her accurate understanding of my work, and her expertise in pointing out the ways I could improve my story. I look forward to working with her again."
—Susan Burdorf

"After months of drafting and revising a manuscript, it makes sense to find an editor who demonstrates the same passionate commitment to bringing your book to life. Hollie is that editor. Her care and precision during the final steps toward publication were a huge relief to me, and I especially appreciated how responsive and efficient she was during the process. Her editorial services are top-notch. Highly recommended!”
—Dawn Malone

"I couldn't ask for a better editor. Hollie's compassion, support, and encouragement made the editing process something that I looked forward to rather than feared. It's obvious how much she loves her job and the authors she works with. I can't imagine writing a book without her. She isn't just my editor now, she's my friend."
—Stacie O’Brien
