January 22, 2008, I became a published writer for the first time. Your
encouraging, thorough, and responsive edits greatly helped my growth as
a writer. I found your advice to be helpful, insightful and inspiring.
Your dedication to serve your clients is exceptional. You were ALWAYS
available--whether I needed an early morning phone chat or a late night
e-mail. Often one is disappointed when a product/service does not live
up to expectations. But in your situation, you exceeded my high
I receive the blessing of getting published, it will be because of your
editing. You have turned my manuscript into a readable book. Yes, you
succeeded in drilling into my head how important it is to fix my
transitions and characters popping up from nowhere. When I replaced
dialogue tags with action verbs, the page jumped out at me. Your
reasoning behind the editing and overview was so clearly explained that
I have no questions!

was lost before I found Inspiration for Writers. Rhonda was very
helpful in locating inconsistencies, flaws, and spelling errors that I
couldn't find. She answered my emails in a timely manner, made sure my
book read smoothly, and was flexible with payment arrangements during
these hard economic times. Now I'm happy to say my book was accepted by
a publisher and is schedule to be released this coming December. If it
weren't for Rhonda's expertise, patience, and dedication, I'd still be
shopping my novel. I definitely will be using Inspiration for Writers
again in the near future!

hard to find an editor who "gets it," someone who can help you say what
you mean without letting his or her own agenda interfere. Sandi Rog
gets it. She's helped me cut through the clutter and see past my own
enthusiasm (or anxiety) so I can communicate my ideas. If you want your
work to say what it should, Sandi will be a tremendous asset.
Tritt did the editing and polishing for my first book, and with her
help, it has been sold. I know that without her insight and kind
encouragement, I never could have made such a sale. She is a dear and
kind soul sent by God to make the world a kinder place.

a published author, I depend on Wendy to be my extra pair of eyes. She
sees what I don't. Right now, she's helping me with a Victorian romance
called Elegance and Grace. She provides the elegance and grace
needed to write good prose. I'd be lost without her. Thank you, Wendy!
the right editor is the most important task for any author, one they
should never take lightly. Sandy Tritt was the third editor I tried, so
I was a little leery at first. However, the results from her editing my
manuscript were excellent. My book, in my mind, is a masterpiece. I
even learned a little about turning text into a conversational style to
make my book more reader-friendly. Thanks, Sandy, for a job well done.
I'll be back for your service again, as soon as I write my next book.

never send anything out without first running it by Rhonda. Not only
does she catch all the times I slip into passive voice in my novel, she
helps tighten up my sentences, points out chapters that move too
slowly, and keeps me motivated to see the book through to the finish.

critiquing is more than just a professional service. It's like having
the expertise of a writing instructor and the personal assistance of a
coach all at once. While a writer brings expression to words, Sandy's
professional touch adds the flavor of life to expression. Thank you,
Sandy, for your invaluable support and critiquing.

Tritt was heaven sent. Being a first time writer, I wasn't sure of
where to start or what to do. Sandy guided me from the initial stage of
writing a query letter to finding a publisher. I am now a published

have dreamed of becoming a professional writer since eighth grade.
After losing my sight when I was nineteen, I thought I'd lost my dream
forever. After fifteen years without vision, I received a computer with
speech and began to write once again. I wrote a novel and sent it out
to twenty agents and publishers. It wasn't long before I received back
twenty rejections. I realized even though I wanted to write more than
anything, the desire to do so wasn't enough. I needed help. This was
when I met Sandy Tritt. Her editing has been invaluable to me. With her
guidance, I learned the rules of writing. She taught me the meaning of
"showing, not telling," which is the most critical aspect of a salable
story. The lady knows her stuff! My writing has improved one hundred
percent since she began working with me. I encourage anyone to give her
editing a chance. You won't regret it.

had been writing with mediocre skill for years until I met Sandy. She
is an amazing editor, critiquer and teacher, sensitive and gentle, yet
firm. I learned more from her in a few months than I had in all the
years reading books on how to write. She explains things thoroughly and
is endlessly patient with persistently "stupid" writing. My writing
would not be what it is without her. Thank you, Sandy.

believe that I
will be published, and it
will happen as a direct result of Sandy's handholding and gentle
to rewrite that line with a stronger emphasis, or to move that
exposition to a
more strategic paragraph.

diligently for a Christian editor who would work with integrity and
editor who would believe in what I was writing and who would help me
put life and
zest onto the pages. Sandy Tritt was the answer to my prayers.
