“I've been writing and producing books for over twenty-five years now and have worked with hundreds of people in publishing. During that time I've learned that some of the people you connect with are gems—great people with good hearts who are passionate about their work, extremely talented, absolutely reliable, professional and a joy to work with. Jill Ronsley is one of those gems and I highly recommend her.”
Rick Osborne, co-author with Gary Chapman of A Perfect Pet for Peyton, from The 5 Love Languages® series.

“Jill Ronsley recently designed the eBook I wrote for my website. I found her through an internet search, and it was so refreshing to have such a great experience with someone entirely unknown to me. Jill is an outstanding communicator: smart, charming, an expert in her field, and truly respectful. The work she did for me was excellent. The book turned out beautifully. She made every aspect of the project easy for me. I would definitely recommend Jill to anyone looking for great typesetting and design, and a truly professional experience.”
Julia Hook, brands and print manager for Jacuzzi, Benetrends, etc.

"Jill champions, preserves and eloquently illuminates the precious 'voice' of the author. I wanted to claim her revisions and corrections as my own. If there were such a person as a Book Whisperer, it would be Jill.”
Chicoro, author, Grow It! and Hair Products 101

“Jill Ronsley exceeded my expectations in her substantive edit of my novel, The Secret Zoo. Jill's strongest abilities are, I believe, rooted in her unwavering attention to detail. From structuring sentences to suggesting adjustments to plot or characters, her advice and changes to The Secret Zoo always enhanced the readability and strengthened the story. An excellent writer, Jill is in touch with the nuances of language and knows how to tighten writing to have it read more cleanly, effectively, and gracefully. She does all this while maintaining the author's unique voice. Working with Jill, I sensed that she realized the passion that went into writing The Secret Zoo, and she not only respected that, she honored it. Jill was always available and answered emails more promptly than any other trade professional that I've worked with. I would highly recommend Jill's services to everyone interested in having their work edited. I hold exceptionally high standards and was delighted when Jill surpassed them. I will undoubtedly work with Jill on future projects. ”
Bryan Chick, author of The Secret Zoo series, published by HarperCollins Publishers

“Thank you for creating the appealing and engaging [book] design. Your sensitivity, attention to detail, and thoughtful approach were greatly appreciated, and the book is better for it. We are confident this book will be enjoyed and appreciated by children of all experiences. Working with you was a pleasure.”
Len Boswell, Director, Book Publishing, American Cancer Society

“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Jill. She has designed book interiors and covers for many 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 (book printer)      

“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 with her amazing ability to maintain the author's voice throughout, to the keen and artistic eye she lends in the design phase, culminating in a beautiful finished product, Jill is the proverbial complete package. 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

"Jill is a skilled editor who is knowledgeable about the writing marketplace and sensitive to an author's style and mindset. She helped me to fully express my intent with insights and observations that can only come from a seasoned professional. I had complete confidence that my work of nonfiction would be an absolute gem after Jill's thorough review-which has proven to be true through strong book sales."
Suzanne Bilek, author, Great Female Artists of Detroit, published by
The History Press

“Jill brings an impressive range of sensibilities to the development-edit process. Her astute suggestions not only helped to improve the sequencing and usability of the content, as I had hoped, but they also helped to improve the book's marketability and the reader's perception of the author (me!). Her queries were terrific, her suggestions were outstanding, and her explanations of them were illuminating. In short, she is on speed dial for my next project!”
Eric Armstrong, author
