What authors are saying about our services...

 
"Teresa is a wonderful mix of professionalism and friendliness.  When I hired her to help me navigate the waters of publishing, I only knew that I was hiring an editor who "got" my writing and knew how to edit without changing my voice.  As we continued to work together, and she helped with my query, synopsis, and agent search, making the process much less intimidating and helping me navigate The Great Agent Quest with ease."
 
Michelle O'Brien, author of Killing Julie
  
“I've worked with four fiction editors over the past few years on other manuscripts; Teresa Kennedy is easily at the top of my list. Her skills are very sharp, direction clear and concise, and (five stars for this one) she applies constructive criticism painlessly. I'd hire her again in a minute. " -Paula Cappa, award-winning author, The Dazzling Darkness and more
 
"I hired Teresa to help with my manuscript from a relatively beginning stage to a final polish.  She was right on target each time.  Her critique was clear and concise.  I followed her suggestions for a better book."
-Harriet Rogers, author of The Taxi Chronicles, Taxi High and more
 
"Fiction writing isn't easy for us mere mortals. Good writing, at least. That's where a solid editor helps. Teresa Kennedy was instrumental in shaping my projects into something that was engaging and meaningful. She helped me mine the gold from the pile of rubble I was putting on the page. I owe a great deal to her expertise."
-Tony Bertauski, award winning author The Socket Greeny Saga and more
  

 "I stumbled upon Teresa Kennedy's editing services, and now believe in Divine Intervention. I needed an editor. By that, I mean, I NEEDED AN EDITOR. 
 
Teresa proved to be not just an editor, but a kind, compassionate writing mentor, dangling proverbial carrots (or in my case, Cheetos) to lead me out of the weeds and keep my story flowing down a nice, consistently proven path.  She provided great input and suggestions, while also keeping a keen eye on line editing (insert correction of typos here).
 
The best part is, Teresa is decidedly not a pretentious princess. By that, I mean she's not into BS. You will get honest and sincere (albeit kindly worded) input to help you on your way, and present the best product possible for your audience. 

Face it, your Amazon readers won't sugar coat anything - you need to make sure you're putting your best foot forward, and Village Green Editing WILL launch you on a successful path toward your goals.
Teresa is my new found treasure. Sure, you can use her as your editor. Just remember she's mine. Okay, maybe you can borrow her from time to time...hmm.

Oh, and by the way, did I happen to mention that our last project together,  got a 5-STAR REVIEW FROM READERS' FAVORITE? 
Yeah, she's that good. Just sayin'.'

 "My search for an editor ended when I found Teresa Kennedy. With over thirty years experience in the publishing industry and dozens of books to her credit, she improved my writing skills, developed my novels into cohesive stories, and helped me understand the book publishing industry in ways that I would never have learned on my own. Thus far, I've worked with her on four novels and a novella, and there's more to come."

 "Teresa is awesome. She's professional, easy to work with and a great person on top of that.  She always keeps to her schedule, and stays in communication to keep you in the loop.  Her edits are skillful and her advice is insightful and always spot on.  I had used other services in the past, but after working with her she's the only editor I use anymore.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.  I plan to use her services on all my future projects."
