Recommendations from Published Authors

John Yeoman, novelist: My US friend Diana Holdsworth has just launched her own editing and proofreading service for bloggers and other writers. I highly recommend her. She did an ace job on my debut novel The Cunning Man which has gained more than fifty 5-star reviews across five Amazon sites in just eight weeks.

Jendi Reiter, novelist and poet: “Thanks, Diana, for your thoughtful critique of my novel manuscript TWO NATURES. You gave me insight into my characters’ motivations and encouraged me to share more of their vulnerabilities. You’re a great support for writers.”
