OUR CLIENTS' BOOKS

“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 of Great Female Artists of Detroit

“Since I started working with Jill, I have had peace of mind with regard to the editorial, cover, interior design, ebook formatting and proofreading part of my business. I tried three editors before her, but Jill exceeded my expectations with her detailed and full-hearted approach to all tasks undertaken. Being quick to respond, open-minded, and ready to take on projects that require a fast response is what I need, and I found it all from the first moment of our co-operation with Jill.”
—Vadim Turcanu, author of TIMS (The Intelligent Migrant Series): Tips for Personal and Professional Success and No One’s Business

“John Catt Educational worked with Jill on the production of Mind Your Head: An Emotional Intelligence Guide for School Leaders. Although we were separated by thousands of miles, we found her very pleasant and friendly to work alongside and she did a thoroughly professional job. When the files arrived with us, they were in good order and exactly the right format. We would have no hesitation working with Jill on other projects.”
Alex Sharratt, CEO, John Catt Educational Limited, London, UK

“As a first time author I turned to Jill Ronsley to edit my book because of her considerable experience and deep understanding of human values and the educational process. The decision was the wisest I have taken. She not only examined the text with a sharp but empathetic intellect, but she also took her scalpel to my manuscript, eliminating the unnecessary and illuminating the points I was trying to make. The result is a far more readable book for the buyers and a far more satisfying product for the author. I cannot recommend Jill too highly.”
David Boddy, author of Mind Their Hearts and Mind Your Head

“You are an excellent designer and editor, and I believe in your sense of judgment. My friends and colleagues were impressed by the the dust jacket when they received the book.

Takashi Kodaira, author of One Man and the World, Yokohama City University, Japan

—Chhanda Gupta, PhD, author of In Search of Just Families: A Philosophical View

She keeps deadlines; tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear; listens to what’s important to you, the customer; and genuinely cares that your product gets the most professional representation possible. My book looks fabulous and thanks to Jill, I know it has a chance in the marketplace. I highly recommend her services. Jill rocks it!”

“I enjoyed working with Jill Ronsley, the editor of Education Reform: The Role and Responsibility of Schools, Parents, Students, and Communities. Her perspective and input enhanced the quality of my book. A key factor in working with Jill is her respect for production schedules. She provided feedback in a timely manner and always showed dedication to the completion of my project. Most important, Jill wanted to make sure that I was happy before ‘closing the book’ on the editing process and moving on to book design and printing. At the end of the process, I felt that my book was as much Jill’s as it was mine.”
Carletta D. Washington, author of Education Reform: The Role and Responsibility of Schools, Parents, Students, and Communities

In addition, it is a pleasure to work with Jill, and she always responds promptly to any questions or requests. I’m doing another book now, and I have already put it in Jill’s hands. I know that I can count on her to do an excellent job.”
