Testimonials

John Duncanson

“Vivian Head has completed proofreading and editing of my first publication, being the 286-page book titled Same Planet, Different Worlds, published in 2015. I feel fortunate to have located Vivian, as her meticulous editing and proofreading/cross-checking skills caught numerous errors that could have otherwise been published. I would say Vivian is a dream editor and very genuine person. I would not hesitate to call upon her technical skills again and highly recommend her to all budding and experienced writers and authors.”

"Right from our first meeting I was confident things would go really well, working with Vivian. Straightaway she seemed to know just what would suit my novel, bringing to the table the sort of original and sensitive ideas for its 'look' and 'feel' that I found really pleasing. When we got down to the business of regular back and forth on the details of the book's presentation it was a delight to be on the receiving end of her quick, efficient and always warmly friendly messages. I am thrilled with how The Eyes that Look has turned out – and so many people feel the same as me, praising its good looks and great production values. Vivian is an absolutely top-class designer as far as I'm concerned."

"Vivian Head’s work is always first class. Her copy editing and proofreading of my contemporary romance manuscripts prior to publication has been excellent and I would have no hesitation in working with her again."

Dr Chris Heal

"It was my first time working with Viv. We had a 700+ page detailed history book to get through, laden with German and French, and sheets of maps and pictures, not counting a thirty-page index, a lengthy bibliography and all of my silly errors. Viv tells you what she is going to do, and by when, and then she does it. She has patience, good humour, tenacity and flexibility: a pleasure to work with and I hope that we meet up again. If you like dogs, then that’s a bonus."
