“David is probably the most proficient and detail-oriented editor and proofreader I’ve met! As a PhD student, I understand the importance of technical accuracy in writing and have been grateful for David’s tireless and passionate revision. Because he takes the time to provide one-on-one attention to his clients, editing is a productive undertaking instead of the anxiety-driven task it can sometimes be!” – Lorinda Stoneman, SOLOS
“David was prompt and professional, asked important questions, and provided both editorial and substantive suggestions that proved invaluable. My material was time sensitive and he was able to complete the job on budget and ahead of schedule. I recommend him without reservation.” – Johannes Wheeldon, Adjunct Professor, Heritage University, WA

“After endlessly searching for an editor that I would be comfortable with David Antrobus was recommended to me. David’s editing service far exceeded my expectations. He was able to adapt to my writing style and thereby enhance my novel without changing the ‘voice’. I would highly recommend David Antrobus to any serious writers looking for editing.” – David Yuzuk, author of Cities of Sand and Stone

“I’ve worked with numerous editors over the years, but none have made the process so smooth as David. Not only is he a consummate professional, his work gives me the security to know what I am publishing is truly ready for public consumption.” - Jack Wallen, author of Hell’s Muse
“David kept me well informed during every step in the process of editing my manuscript. When needed he sent me questions and his comments in the document were so thorough, I felt as if he were having a conversation rather than exchanging messages. My book is a hundred times better for having worked with him.” - Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar, author of Mommy but Still Me and Coloured and Other Stories
