Editing ensures that errors are corrected in a document and establishes a clear and cohesive writing style. A good copy editor maintains the unique voice of the writer. When the editing is complete, the writer can proudly submit his or her work to a publisher, employer, client or reviewer.

SUN Editing & Book Design offers editing services for a wide range of manuscripts: books, articles, presentations, letters, newsletters, cookbooks, manuals and stories for children. We offer standard, substantive and developmental editing services.

“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Jill as a designer for a self publisher/author. She has designed book interiors and covers for many other publishers and self-publishers that have used Worzalla for book printing.
       "The intricacies of designing a book (particularly full color books) are many, and difficult. Jill had no trouble at all with this and provided flawless files. Every detail was perfect, and exactly to the required specs.
       "I’d be happy to recommend Jill for any design project without hesitation. Her professionalism is top notch, skills are with the best, and her creativity is unequaled.”

 —Jon Kusmider, Lead Customer Service Representative, Worzalla Publishing,      October 14, 2010

“I've had the pleasure of working with Jill since opening Pleasant St. Press in 2006. Jill possesses a unique blend of professionalism and genuine friendly accessibility; the combination of which is a rare find. From beginning to end Jill is a perfectionist in every aspect of her work. From line-by-line editing to her amazing ability to maintain the author's voice throughout the editing process, to the keen and artistic eye she lends in the design phase, culminating in a beautiful finished product, Jill is the proverbial complete package when it comes to editing and design. It is with absolute confidence that I highly recommend Jill Ronsley to anyone in need of editing and/or design work for their titles.”
       Jill’s top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

—Alan Cochran, CEO at Pleasant St. Press, April 14, 2010

“I first learned of Jill Ronsley’s editing service through the recommendation of another author. I sought Jill’s help to edit a query letter for the first book in my middle-grade novel series. She helped create a professional query letter that has opened doors for me. I then sought her help in editing the first and second books in my series. Her editing services have proven invaluable, not just for the specific books she worked on, but also because of how much I learned from her editing, her remarks and her words of encouragement. The education I have gained has made me a better writer going forward.”
Darren Simon, author, The Last Guardian and the Reject Bike and The Last     Guardian and the Hero’s Way, January 30, 2011
