“I never understood why people gushed over their editors. Don’t they just put commas in the right spot? Well, now I know, and I can’t gush enough. Nicole gets it. She gets me. She is kind when I’m slacking on my due dates but still sends out friendly reminders consistently. I haven’t missed a deadline on my weekly post for over a year now–that is what Nicole can do for you, too. My writing is more relevant and whole. I’m a better person overall because Nicole is my writing coach/partner/enthusiast now.

“I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with Nicole for several years, and I’m psyched that it looks like we’ll be continuing on. If you need an editor or someone to help with your writing in general, the one person I recommend is Nicole Ayers.”

“What a splendid experience it’s been working with Nicole Ayers of Ayers Edits! Her early encouragement when I began to write these tales created a strong motivation to continue. Not only did Nicole see the project as a whole, but as the manuscript unfolded, she examined each word and plot detail to make the stories work separately and together. Her ability to recall the specifics of these twelve tales was uncanny and her sense of storyline unerring. I wholeheartedly recommend Nicole as a developmental editor: Her sensitivity to subtext, layers of meaning, and voice is remarkable.”

“A 5-star rating doesn’t do her a bit of justice. Nicole has never delivered anything but the best quality. I’ve worked with her a lot over the last two months, and I will continue coming back for more in the months to come. She’s the most valuable member of my creative team; I couldn’t ask for a better editor. She’s incredibly friendly and professional. She’s irreplaceable. I don’t know what I’d do without her!”

“I had a rapidly approaching deadline, so Ayers Edits completed a 24K word copyediting job for me in just three days. Her work was meticulous, dedicated, and obviously efficient. The improvements she brought to my text are incalculable. Through it all, she was patient and easy to communicate with. I plan to use her services again and would recommend her to other writers in any genre.”

“Nicole with Ayers Edits provides exceptional customer service and, most importantly, does a flawless job with editing a manuscript. Nicole made a great first impression with her timely responsiveness and carried this quality through the entire editing process, meeting all proposed deadlines even earlier than expected. As a first time children’s book author, her patience with me understanding the editing process was invaluable. She is an editor and an educator in the highest regard. I look forward to working with Nicole again when my second children’s book is ready for the editing process.”

I trust her opinions and insight. Apart from being a valuable resource, I found her incredibly easy to work with, which was important when discussing sensitive parts of my memoir. I recommend Nicole without question.”

“Picking an editor for my very first book was a daunting process for me. I had never hired an editor and had no clue about the process of getting a book published. When I stumbled across Nicole’s information and read her bio, I thought, this is the editor for me! Then with her quick and extremely enthusiastic response, she put all my fears to rest. She is extremely thorough, very helpful and very professional. I highly recommend her to both new writers and seasoned writers. You will not be disappointed.”
