Sandra’s skillfulness is essential! I couldn’t have begun the editing process nor had the confidence that my novel was professional without her input. In fact, every single person in our writer’s group looks to her for corrections and suggestions. On top of her vast grammatical expertise and finesse, she’s so great to work with: kind, organized, and attentive to deadlines.
Livi Hallahan, author of What You Don’t See
When you write you want the words to flow, anyway I do when I write. But I’m not too good at spelling or grammar when it comes to the professional quality that is needed for published works. I can write better than the average person for sure, but that is not enough. Sandra provides the “enough.” She is a nit-picking grammarian and speller for sure, which is what a person should want in a proof editor. Use her for your proof reading and you won’t be disappointed.

It is my pleasure to endorse Sandra Yeaman as an editor for any and all written documents. I have served with Sandra on the Board of Directors of San Diego Writers and Editors Guild for several years and have first-hand knowledge of the skills she uses in reviewing documents, finding questionable entries and knowing how to correct them. I chose Sandra to edit a children’s book series based on my observations of her skills. She is meticulous to detail, incredibly organized so that from beginning to end of the process you know exactly what the process is and where the review is on the timeline. She detailed resources that she would use in the editing of my manuscript. In addition to her technical skills, she is wonderful to work with – a great communicator. I felt certain that before going to press, my manuscript would be devoid of errors. I will certainly have her edit the other two books in the series.
