W e can say all we like about our services but the only people whose opinions we value are our customers. We’re proud to have some pretty awesome people as customers! Here is what some of our customers have to say:
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.

Trevor Armstrong

Author of The Cauldron
As a women in business, I have always believed in partnering with experts to ensure that my clients receive an excellent outcome. I have recently extended my repertoire, and as a first-time author I found myself looking for an editing team for my book – I am a Purposepreneur. I found Hugo and Brenda via their website and reached out. Within an hour I had a response with an outline of how they were able to assist as well as their rates. They are very competitively priced, and you will likely not find another company that will align service outcomes with their rates. I have loved working with this husband and wife team. They edited my manuscript, assisted with the blurb as well as the cover text. Busy Bee Editing has a fast and accurate turnaround time and what I loved most about working with an efficient team, was that I could allow my creative juices to flow without constantly pondering the usage of an apostrophe or syntax.

Should you have a proposal, report, book or LinkedIn Bio that needs professional tweaking, then this is your go-to team.

Published Author – I am a Purposepreneur

I have passed my master’s degree with distinction/cum laude. All thanks to Brenda and Hugo for the editing, proofreading and layout services on my thesis at a very reasonable price. I am looking forward to working with you again as I have started my long journey of obtaining my PhD. I strongly recommend them anytime.

Best of luck in your business.

Thank you for your services and the support by way of your response to all my requests (even when I was sometimes a bit demanding) to get my thesis done. I truly appreciate it!

I would like to wish you all the best in your business.

Ruth Daniels

Student at Stellenbosch University

Thanks for your excellent editing. The checking of grammar, spelling and rephrasing for clarity and flow where appropriate. Comments in the margin for anything you did not follow and suggestions that benefited the text. Throughout the document, you ensured consistency with the subtle changes of words offering a better meaning or position. The editing did not change the meaning or the flow of the writing but made it easier to read.
Carlos Phitidis

Thanks for your super-fast and efficient work as always, a delight and a good surprise.

Thank you very much, I really appreciate the professionalism
Mpho Nkambule

Student at the University of Johannesburg

I completed my Master’s Degree in Conflict Management and Transformation at the Nelson Mandela University in 2015 and 2016. My treatise was my biggest concern as I had never submitted something of this nature before. I approached numerous editors for assistance, and despite having been charged an arm and a leg, I still ended up with a product that was not up to standard. Luckily, I stumbled across Brenda and Hugo’s details. From the outset it was clear that they were willing to listen to my requests, they understood what I wanted, and they were very clear as to what they were able to do, and what it would cost me … Whilst being wary of the quote provided to do all my editing (and more), which was less than half of what previous editing companies had charged me, I decided to take my chances with Brenda and Hugo, and what a great decision that was! Brenda and Hugo supplied me with a document that was accepted by the university first time around, and well within the time frames that we agreed upon. I am currently doing my doctoral degree and there is no other choice as to whom I will be using for my editing. I can recommend Brenda and Hugo’s services with utmost confidence and pride!

I would like to sincerely thank you both for the editing, proofreading and layout of my thesis. Your work was of a high quality. The service was efficient, quick and very affordable and you did more than what was expected of you. I graduated cum laude and I received a distinction for my thesis as well as the TOP STUDENT award. The examiners commented on the good language that was used. I will definitely refer others to you. Thank you once again for all your help. I made a good choice when using you for language editing.
Renetia Bruce

Hugo and Brenda, words cannot express how thankful I am. You took my manuscript and made it extraordinary. I am so excited to finally publish this book, and this is all thanks to you both. I am looking forward to working with you again on the sequel.
Subie Truter

Brenda and Hugo brought the characters to life in my eBooks. I only managed to publish the first three with them but I can highly recommend them as they are reasonable with their prices and they always go the extra mile with help and advice.
Alexi Ferreira

I never dreamed that my book would finally be published and that I would be attending book launches and signings. But with Brenda’s and Hugo’s help with the editing, proofreading, layout and cover design for my book my dream has come true. My book is now available as an eBook. God Bless you both and I certainly will recommend you to others.
