—Jonathan Maberry, author (The Joe Ledger novels; Pine Run trilogy; The Dragon Factory) and founding partner of The Writers Corner USA
“I was in a writers’ group with Susan Korman for over a dozen years. She was the E.F. Hutton of the group: whenever she spoke, everyone listened. Everything she said was spot-on and brilliant. I would (and do) trust Susan to critique and edit any manuscript of mine. She is terrific at everything from whole-picture editing to line editing, and she does it with kindness, humor, and a keen sense of what the writer needs.”
—Deborah Heiligman, author (Vincent & Theo; Charles & Emma; Intentions; The Boy Who Loved Math: The Improbable Life of Paul Erdos)
“As an editor, Susan possesses the rare blend of insight, experience, and empathy. She also has a delicious sense of humor, which makes her a total delight to work with. Both aspiring and seasoned writers will benefit greatly from her expertise, perceptiveness, and understanding.”
—Pamela Jane, author (Pride and Prejudice and Kitties: A Cat-Lover’s Romp through Jane Austen’s Classic; Little Goblin’s Ten; Monster Mischief)
“Susan Korman is just what you need in an editor. With years of professional experience, Susan brings so many talents to bear when she reads and edits your work. Fast, reliable, skillful and honest, she cuts out the unnecessary and helps you to bring out the true power and beauty of your words, always working in close communication as she goes deeper into the process. More than an editor, Susan is a trusted guide and mentor. I have worked with her many times, and each time she has helped me to bring out the potential of my book and ready it for submission or publication. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
—Leza Lowitz, author (Jet Black and the Ninja Wind; Yoga Poems: Lines to Unfold By; Yoga Poems: Lines on the Six Perfections)
“Susan Korman is an inspiring and thoughtful editor. I have worked with her both in an office and as a freelancer, and she is always warm and fun to work with. She has a careful eye, along with a fine sense for character, storyline, and quality writing. Any writing project will be better after Susan has looked at it.”
—Misa Lindberg, writer, editor, and translator
“I’ve been writing for long time and have participated in many conferences and classes. I consider Susan’s editorial services the best money I ever spent. Her critique of my story was like a course in ‘How to Write a Novel.’ She gets my highest recommendation.”
—Shellie Lyon, writer
“Susan critiqued my work in a timely manner and helped me immeasurably to get my work in front of the right people.”
—Ed Gibson, writer
“Susan was a big help in getting my manuscript to be all that it could be. She was able to help with everything from copy editing to subplot changes. It was well worth the money to have another set of eyes read the book and give an honest opinion. “
