“Brandy has a fantastic work ethic and was a pleasure to work with. She is a team player and gave all of her time and energy to her job up until the last minute. She is a great writer and editor and she has helped me edit my writing both professionally and privately. I will continue to ask for her assistance with my writing even from a distance.”

Chronicles of the Secret Prince by M.J. Bell

Deston Lespérance grew up believing faeries and monsters are just stories told to children at bedtime. However, when his mother mysteriously vanishes and he stumbles into the mystical realm of Tir na-nÓg, he discovers the shocking truth that these beings are not only real, they hold the key to his future.

“Working on my first two books with Brandy Nemeth-Shorten was one of the most pleasurable experiences of my publishing process.  Brandy is an incredible editor to work with— very thorough and her suggestions not only make sense, but were typically spot on. Plus, her reasoning for the changes was easy to understand and follow.  I also loved the precise notes she provided me, explaining it all.  All in all, I loved working with Brandy and will do so again. She helped make my dream come true and helped make my books the best they can be.”

A Song for Ladybug by Susan Haught

One night shattered her life–a horror fifteen years couldn’t erase. Rachel is a survivor, but surviving this time may come with a price too high to pay.

I’m an author, and I needed a beta reader who could read my manuscript and give both an impression of the story, and an unbiased critique. The subject matter was one that needed tender loving care, but also the deeply honest opinion of one who truly cared about the content of the story. When I asked around the writing community, a fellow author highly recommended Brandy. Brandy was enthusiastic, and agreed to the services I needed.

When the critique came back, I was more than pleased. I was on deadline, and not only did Brandy read and return the manuscript in a timely manner, she offered comments on the overall story and took the time to dissect every aspect from scene description to dialogue to character and plot development. I was amazed at her insight into each of these aspects and the overall theme of the story.

Brandy is highly skilled at what she does. She gave me valuable feedback that helped produce a structurally sound story. If you’re looking for someone who will give honest, unbiased feedback, editing, or any other aspect of your manuscript, I highly recommend Ms. Bell’s services.
