  • I’ve been through numerous proofreaders because as a developmental editor and author, I understand the importance of the editing process. Thanks to Paulette’s excellent work, I have a second copy editor and the best proofreader EVER. I’m serious. She’s that good. No one is perfect, but she’s pretty close. I’m having her re-proof all of my past and proof my future titles.
