“When I decided to self-publish my book, The Quicksand of Agoraphobia, I was delighted to find EditPros, a local, hands-on company with real people who answer the phone. Both Marti and Jeff are seasoned professionals who helped me with every detail necessary to get my manuscript into book form and on to distributors. My lack of computer skills might have frustrated others, but Marti was extremely patient as she answered my numerous, repetitive questions. From front to back cover, EditPros delivered a professional product. Their skills are matched by their concern, kindness, honesty and responsiveness. I would highly recommend EditPros to anyone with a desire to self-publish.”

“I had been trying to finish a family memoir that my [late] husband wrote, but had been unable to finish. Frustrated by not being able to make a satisfactory copy and not knowing how to include pictures, a friend referred to me EditPros. In our first meeting Marti Childs helped me clarify what I wanted the manuscript to look like. The first big change was to publish the manuscript as a softcover book. Marti helped with editing, copied and edited pictures from slides made in 1981, placed them appropriately in the text, created a map of Nigeria reflecting memories in the book, and worked with me to achieve beautiful front and back covers. I had the book, Oyibo, I Am Coming, by Christmas, and sent out 15 copies as gifts. Our children were overjoyed to see their Dad's work completed, and our overseas friends were fascinated to read my husband's memories of a time we shared. I am so grateful to have found Marti and Jeff. I would not have been able to complete this project without their skill, support and expertise."

“You should know the pleasure I found in working with you. I learned a lot as I went along .You may know that the Yolo Branch Library created a new section for local self-published authors, and my book was one of the first ones. I check the library from time to time, and the book is spending as much time out as it is in the stacks. So thank you, Marti. Now I can say I'm a writer.”

(Doug’s wife, Donna, added: “Our experience with you was nothing but positive.”
“I want to most sincerely thank you for your personal attention to my oddball requests regarding the editing and publishing of my book. I know they were not standard, but your prompt and skilled compliance was deeply appreciated. I doubt that any other similar service would have been so responsive.”
