Testimonials

"I have used Janet's services on three of my novels, and I HIGHLY recommend her. Her work is extremely meticulous, and she catches errors that you didn't even realize existed! Not only that, but, most importantly, she is extremely passionate about her work and helping the author, and she wants to see the final product be the best work the author can produce! Her feedback isn't critical but encouraging and helps the author grow and better understand the writing process. You won't be disappointed!" Steven G. 

"Janet was very responsive to my needs and requests and her editing suggestions greatly improved the readability of my booklet. I highly recommend her." - Corinn H.  

"Janet was easy to work with and had a quick turnaround. She provided editing recommendations to our project that brought clarity and elevated the overall quality. Janet took extra care with our project as if it were her own. She was thorough in her review, and provided excellent documentation." - Andrea M.

"It gives me great pleasure to recommend Janet Ramondetta as a copy editor and all around fine editor. Janet performed these duties for my novel, Katz Has 9 Lives, and it is a better book due to her efforts. She not only spotted grammatical issues but did fact checking and caught several inconsistencies within the plot. All the assignments were returned to me on time and it was easy to see where she made her edits. I recommend her without reservation." Eric K. 

"Janet has been a pleasure to work with. She is very responsive and always eager to help! I enjoy having her on my team. She has been a great second pair of eyes. I would recommend her to anyone who needs editing or proofreading services." -Tunisha M. 

A Writer and Reader Partnership

Bringing the collaborative process to the table

  col·lab·o·rate /kə-'la-bə-ˌrāt/ 1: to work jointly with others or together esp. in an intellectual endeavor 


  All writers need to have their work proofread by a second set of eyes with a fresh perspective; someone who can help clarify and polish your message. 


When your audience trips over punctuation flaws and unclear antecedents, how does that distract from your message?    


Janet offers the constructive elements to improve the draft, along with support to craft your best composition.


She cares about authors and understands that it is nerve-wracking to let go and let someone else critique your work.


Her goal is to make the copyediting and proofreading process easier and help you to shine.

Have your work proofread by a caring professional

  • Janet specializes in creative writing projects such as self-published ebook novels, non-fiction consumer books, cookbooks, and blog posts.
  • Janet worked at Scholastic Book Fairs for over 12 years and wore many hats. She proofread marketing materials for international customers and read and judged manuscripts on book selection committees.
  • During the proofreading and editing review, Janet notes the typos, spacing inconsistencies, spelling mistakes, punctuation problems, and capitalization errors; makes comments to clarify grammar, style, and terminology; and points out variances of the voice, context, and continuity. She will also flag for factual errors, with research for verification.

How do I get a price quote for my writing project?

  • We’ll start by setting up a 10-minute​ phone interview to discuss your project. Next, Janet will review a portion of your draft (1-5 pages) so she may show you the editing levels, provide samples of her work, and determine a time for completion, and to decide if she would be the best fit for your project. 
  • Every project is unique, and Janet will customize the pricing based on the stage of the process.
