An author’s first novel is a minefield and Busy Bee provided me with high quality professional editing, proofreading, layout and cover design that were seamless and affordable. I will use them again and recommend them to all including my writers group.

As an established internationally best-selling author I know the value of hiring a professional editor to proofread and edit your manuscript. Hugo Chandler the owner of Busy Bee Editing, with his excellent editorial skills picked up the nitty-gritty of my grammar, syntax, punctuation, and revised and reworked particular sentences and paragraphs. He specifically improved my paragraph flow, tenses, voice, and readability. He made sure that my book The Unfakeable Code® is ready for publication and for touching the hearts and elevating the minds of millions of readers. He is a superb editor, so I recommend Busy Bee Editing wholeheartedly.
