“I’m wrapping up my first book, and want to take a moment to share what it was like to work with Chantel of Afterwords Communication.
Since this was the first book I’d written, I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Chantel was flexible, responsive, and helpful every step of the way — a relief for a brand new author.
Chantel did the structural editing pass on my book — an important step that she handled with grace. Her suggestions were a mix of encouragement about what I’d done, and thoughtful ideas about how it could be improved. I felt completely supported by a smart, interested, and engaged editor.
I’d highly recommend Afterwords Communication and Chantel. She’s the smart, savvy advocate that every author needs.”
“I’ve been wanting to share more about how I design and run my business, but writing always felt like a chore to me. I realized it was mainly because I’d get stuck on the last 10% finessing and reworking the copy until I was happy with it. Working with Chantel has taken away that friction and allowed me to freely write, not worrying about whether I have everything completely polished.
What I love most about working with Chantel is that she edits from a content perspective not just simple proofreading. She asks good questions and proposes ideas that help to draw me out and really make each post feel cohesive and engaging.
Honestly, working with her is one of the best investments I’ve made for my business.”
“Chantel has an amazing way of being completely present during conversations. It’s not often you find someone who “just gets it.” Chantel is one of those people. If you think I’m being too cryptic, then work with her. You’ll see what I’m talking about.”
“Over time, Chantel’s gentle voice took me from a (very) rough draft to a book with flow and story. She met every one of my stubborn arguments with a soft understanding and a library full of experience. Chantel is deeply kind and encouraging–two things you may not realize you need, but that adds an invaluable, protective shield during the vulnerable process of writing a book.”
“I’ve thought of you several times recently as people have commented that they really liked our website and more specifically a few have mentioned the writing! Wow, who comments on the copy for your website!? I guess they do when you hire a pro!”
“I’ve talked about writing a book for quite a while, but getting it done was another story altogether. Without Chantel, I’m not sure I would have finished it, and if I had, it wouldn’t have turned out nearly as well. If you’re looking for someone who will help guide you toward your vision of the book you’ve always wanted to write, look no further than Afterwords Communications!”
“Thanks so much for your encouragement all along the way. It’s been invaluable to the process, and my confidence to take my story forth into the world! I am thrilled with the outcome!”
