“Teresa Crumpton pinpoints and corrects the usual grammatical suspects, but she also makes suggestions that strengthen the plot, pace, character motivations, and more.
She hunts down errors and weaknesses in the
manuscript and builds confidence by highlighting the author’s strengths as well.
Working with Teresa is a pleasure. She edits, polishes, motivates, and inspires. I value her detailed feedback, expertise, and experience.”
“Teresa has the global eye for the big picture—what works and what doesn’t work. She also has the eagle eye for detail so necessary in the final polishing stage before submission. Without fail, her valuable comments and suggestions are offered with skill, encouragement, honesty, and compassion.”
“Teresa Crumpton is an outstanding editor whose
knowledge, training, and suggestions helped me elevate
my writing to a marketable level. I was signed by an
international agent who sold not only my thriller, which
debuted December 2017, but the entire series.”
