Opinions from some of the authors who have worked with me

"I had proof read my sailing memoir A Whisper on the Mediterranean many times and thought I had spotted all the errors. Once Jo and Andrew Holloway started working with me I was amazed at how many banal mistakes I had missed and  how many repetitions I had not been aware of. The end result was a much better and sharper manuscript." – Tonia Parronchi, A Whisper on the Mediterranean. "Local highschool  dropouts cut in half - chainsaw massacre all over again! Although I didn't write this line, something just as crazy might have appeared in Uncharted Waters without a good edit. Everyone needs someone to proof his/her work. I was never rushed to complete a chapter revision, nor did Jo speed through the book process. The cover for Uncharted Waters matched the mood of the story and fit in nicely with other novels in the line." – Sara DuBose, Uncharted Waters. "I'm used to having my writing commented upon by various parties and therefore feel qualified to say that the editing is thorough and very helpful. I would trust Jo Holloway to do a good job and be genuinely interested in helping the author to get the best they can out of it rather than a sort of 'take-the-money-and-run' approach that one hears of with help towards self-publishing." – Christine Moore, Going Astray. "Jo Holloway and her team are so easy to work with. I entered the edit process for my novel The Long Way Home with trepidation, but quickly relaxed when I found (1) they were open to discussion all the way through the process, and (2) I could quickly see where their experienced eye improved the manuscript significantly. Choosing a cover design for The Long Way Home was an enjoyable process. I am also a visual artist and working together with Jo, we quickly agreed on the use of one of my paintings for the cover.  After trying a few fonts and colors and not quite agreeing at first, we then happily settled on the one that was suggested to me – and I've had buyers comment on the how the cover caught their eye." – Janet Purcell, The Long Way Home and Rooster Street.
"The whole editing process for each of my books has been thorough and of an excellent standard. Collaborating with Jo on all aspects of cover design and layout means that I have ended up with books that  are not only absolutely right but also that I can feel very proud of. I have received positive comments about the appearance and quality of my books when doing book signings at WH Smith, at Waterstones, and at other events." – Julie McGowan, The Mountains Between; Just One More Summer; Don't Pass Me By; Close To You.
