"Absolutely wonderful! Kind and helpful, yet did not hold back on her critique. She gave very detailed feedback with additional articles to help me improve in leaps and bounds. Will definitely be requesting additional services in the future!

Michael

"Iris is a great communicator and I loved working with her. She went out of her way to meet my demands, and I would love to work with her again in the future."

Jessica Scheper

"Iris did a thorough edit of a manuscript of my nonfiction book. Iris responded fast and delivered the product within the agreed-upon term. She gave good recommendations regarding the structure of the manuscript and also followed through on these changes. This made it instantly clear what she meant. She also gave several improvements for the content, which will make the book more valuable to the reader. Her input gave me a big step forward. Thanks, Iris!"

Robbert Wolters

"Very valuable advice about the tone of voice, structure of sentences, and my overall theme. I will incorporate this as I do a rewrite."

Venessa Oveira

"Exceeded my expectations! The feedback blew me away. I have no doubts that working with her will help take your story to the next level. Highly recommended."

Marshall Smith

"The hardest part of my process is trimming down the fat. Iris is more cardio-thoracic surgeon than barber-surgeon, and the results show. It was a quick stint on Iris's operating table, and she has some of the cleanest stitches in the field. Some arteries were flowing poorly, flooding the heart with excess blood. Narrative memoir is like that sometimes. Because of a steady and purposeful scalpel, the patient's heart is beating, and stronger."

Nicole Campbell

"All of my expectations were surpassed. Well worth the wait. She is responsive to messages and answers uestions thoroughly. The delivery was on point and so worth the money."

Hisoka

"She was very informative and detailed in her comments and showed me not only an example of how I could do better, but also led me somewhere where I could improve from. I'm really grateful and definitely will be coming back after I've written some more."

Ramon

"Fantastic! Iris provided detailed feedback that gave me concise and constructive direction. In addition to edits, she provided other short stories and bits of information to help me improve my craft."

Christa

"Iris edited the first 20k words of my memoir in less than a week. At my request, she completed the first 11 pages in less than 2 days to allow me to satisfy a contest deadline. She considered aspects others have missed. Responding to her comments will make my paper significantly better."

John Davis

John Davis

"I had worked on my book for several years and could no longer see the forest for the trees. Iris was readily able to rise above the fray of words and take a good look at what needed to stay and what needed to go. She also educated me to a way of thinking about writing, which cleared the fog from my head and got me back on track. I feel invigorated once again. Thank you, Iris."

Charlie McCormac

"Excellent work. Iris goes above and beyond to deliver clarity and focus. She both takes a big picture view and also provides specific actions to improve our book. Thank you!

Kai Clay

"Iris is phenomenal! She spots the things that I as the author have glossed over, ignored, or tried to get away with. She doesn't pull any punches in her critique, pointing out clearly the things that need work, but she does it so kindly and instructively that it's exciting to go through. I love working with her!"

H. Doan Sperry

"Iris has boosted my writing confidence a million times! The way she effectively helps you to understand any issues you might have shows her depth of knowledge of being a great writer. I don't recommend anyone else!"

Noah Zambrana

"You will LOVE Iris. I was a little nervous because she's out in the never-neverland of the Netherlands, and i'm in Texas, but she is AH-MAZING and pretty quick! My book was kinda all over the place, but she gave me detailed, concrete suggestions so we got it laid out in a good order. She also gently called me on some things I needed to consider to make it stronger for the young adult audience."

D. Fuller

"I liked how detailed Iris is with her feedback, and it makes me think about things I might have overlooked or not thought of."
