“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, #1 New York Times bestselling author, of A Perfect Pet for Peyton: A 5 Love Languages® Discovery Book, and other titles

“I would recommend Jill Ronsley without hesitation. Her design captured the feel of our book project perfectly. She was always timely, even with last-minute requests. Without fail, she delivered just what we needed and was meticulous and thorough. Above all else, Jill was a pleasure to work with. She was always prompt and friendly, and was always willing to go the extra mile. She is a consummate professional.”
—Jill Russell, American Cancer Society Publishing Department

“Working with Jill is one of the best decisions I’ve made as a self-published author.  She was very professional during the entire process, and addressed any questions or concerns that I had in a prompt manner.  Jill is also very knowledgeable in the children’s book publishing arena, and her candid advice proved to be invaluable.  She saved Shelly’s Adventures a ton of money by providing me with beneficial tips along the way.  I highly recommend her services and will be working with her on future titles.”

“From my first email exchange with Jill I knew I had met a great match. Jill is an amazing mentor. Her editing skills transformed my book into one that I am proud to have published. Her book design skills are first rate, and I couldn’t be happier. She exceeded my expectations on every level, from her competence in all types of media to her timely responses to my emails. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“In this, my first publishing project, Jill was helpful and patient as she professionally lifted me up. Communication is very important to me, and hers was impeccable, timely, consistent and thorough. From editing to interior design and completion, with Jill sending my book files to my printer, the process was seamless. I highly recommend Jill as both an editor and interior designer. She offered great guidance, and I would certainly come to her again for my next book.”
Jennifer Butenas, author of A Moment in Time

“Jill Ronsley, my editor and book designer, was recommended by Steve Aitken. I am so glad that I immediately contacted her. Since that time, Jill has taken immense interest in my book. She edited the text so the stories were more cohesive. She presented several fonts in different colors and sizes so I could choose that which would be suitable and to my liking. She arranged the illustrations and designed the book cover, and the result was a magnificent, elegant book that I am so proud of. She also arranged the printing and transportation of the book at a reasonable rate. I found in Jill Ronsley a gem of a person and an editor who worked with me with great diligence and patience and who gave me excellent advice.”
Mary Joseph, M.D., author of The Kerala Collection: Tales from the Banks of the Periyar 

“Jill Ronsley has been a rewarding and wonderful editor and book designer. I was referred to her by another satisfied SCBWI member.

Whim Publishing looks forward to future endeavors with Jill. One word stands out in my mind about Jill: Fabulous!”

“Working with you and your company, Sun Editing & Book Design, has made the publishing of my first picture book an easy and rewarding experience. I can’t say enough about the patience, understanding and care that you exhibited during the entire process, and even afterward.… Your suggestions and input were invaluable to the polishing of my manuscript. Your design work brought the illustrations to life as well as your layout of the text and choices of fonts and color.”
Richard Paniello, author of My Friends at the Zoo

“Working with Jill has been a great journey for me. As a first time author, I appreciated her guidance, patience, knowledge and experience very much. My book was not easy in terms of design, but her creativity made it come out exactly as I hoped it would. Thank you, Jill, for this great learning experience and outcome!”

“I had an excellent experience working with Jill. She edited and designed a children’s book I wrote and she did a fantastic job. She was prompt with her work and patient with the fact that I was new to the process. In dealing with my printer it was obvious that they were very impressed with Jill as well. She provided all the files in the proper format and the printer was able to seamlessly use her work. I recommend Jill Ronsley to anyone who needs an editor or book designer.”
Andrew C. Firnrohr, author of Greenie the Grasshopper

“Jill was great in helping me to understand the ins and outs of book design and printing. Her calm, positive demeanor made her great to work with when dealing with repeated iterations, pulling together all the pieces, and handling the last minute changes that are inevitable in this type of project. I found Jill’s ideas, suggestions, and insights to be very helpful, and that made the whole process easier. She obviously knows her stuff!”
