“My deepest gratitude is extended to my editor, Beth Bellor. It’s amazing how such a gifted wordsmith can turn pages of rambling thoughts into a book that gives the impression it was penned by a professional writer.” – from the acknowledgments page of Mastering the Orchestra Audition: A Musician’s Guide by Roger Frisch, published February 2017

“Beth was my proofreader when I was first starting in the publishing business. She did an excellent job on several novels that I wrote, and offered helpful critiques in addition to simply proofreading. She became much more than someone who reviewed my work for spelling and grammatical errors; she was a partner in making my work so much better. I would recommend using Beth for any proofreading or editing needs you might have.” – A.J. Moor (warning: explicit)

“Beth seems to be very reasonable, cheerful to talk with and very good at her work. She has helped me with many grammatical projects.  I am very happy to work with her. She is always there for you, whether you need some text corrections or just a second opinion.” – Toomas Kattai of mioola.com, Estonia

Very experienced and talented editor and proofreader. Knows how to listen to my needs and bend over backwards to meet them even when they’re complicated. This was a sensitive and complicated project with lots of jargon and complex pitfalls for an editor to deal with. Beth was able to get the job done with perfection! She is also very patient and understanding. We are planning on using her again on small as well as larger projects. If you’re thinking about using her go ahead!! You will not be disappointed. She really does have 25 years of experience! It’s obvious reading her changes and in dealing with her.
