Leanne was a fantastic support throughout the entire process of editing my novel. Her sharp technical skills, combined with an intuitive sense of the story, were instrumental in arriving at the polished final product. Her friendly, always-accessible approach was pleasant and greatly appreciated. Trust is a key component in the writer-editor relationship, and my trust in Leanne is firm.
Chad Ganske, Author of Idyllic Avenue_______________________________I have worked with Leanne on several different projects from my blog to a full edit on my novel Mortal Remains. Leanne goes well beyond copy editing. She focuses on overall concept, helping me ‘land the plane’. Highly skilled at understanding what I’m going for with a piece, she has helped me clarify that purpose every time I’ve worked with her. She gently goes right to the core of any issues and has the rare ability of helping me feel good while highlighting trouble. While a true professional, she is more importantly extremely supportive and constructive. Working with her has helped me take my writing to a higher level._______________________________I believe it is so vital to have an updated resume. Mine was not and I realized that I shouldn’t put this off any longer. I had no idea where to start and the very idea of trying to do this myself seemed daunting and overwhelming! I recently hired Leanne and she did an amazing job!First we had a meeting to share ideas. Leanne is truly an active listener and also offers wonderful suggestions. After the meeting, she took my outdated resume and got to work. My resume is now very professional looking. In addition, it’s attention-getting, results-oriented and gets directly to the point to why a recipient of my resume should inviteme for an interview and consider hiring me. Leanne clearly knows the best way to highlight a person’s strengths and accomplishments. She is brilliant with words and made me shine! When I do consider a job change, I will have a fantastic resume to send out. Also, I’ll have a whole new confidence about pursuing a variety positions and companies. I highly recommend hiring Leanne to update your resume. You will be so happy you did this! I am so pleased with her work that I am referring any friends of mine that are in need of a resume update.Anonymous, Personal Lines Insurance Customer Service Representative
“If you are looking for someone to take your ideas to the next level, you have come to the right place! Working with Leanne over the last three years has been a pure delight.

“Press ’1′ for an adjective.” These are words I’m glad I don’t have to endure when I use Pen to Paper Communications editing services. After dealing with auto-correct options on my computer or text messaging, the last thing I want are automated corrections, resulting from numerous programming calculations. Such programs leave me, as they say, ‘lost in the Matrix’ and will never give me feedback on the depth of my novel’s character formation. Aspiring authors truly need a second, third, and even a fourth eye to polish a manuscript, and Pen to Paper has truly helped me in the editing phase of my novel. Just when I thought my masterpiece sparkled, Pen to Paper smoothed out the glitches. If you’re the type to be blinded by the red and blue mark-ups from notes and tracking changes, then try a more personal approach with Pen to Paper.

“Leanne does writing work for us as needed. She is very careful to understand the substance of the material and message we are trying to convey and asks good questions to make sure she has all of the details. Her work for us has been published in the local newspapers, on marketing material we use in our store and in Trivia Page advertising at local restaurants. Her work is accurate and creative. We really appreciate the great work she does for our shop.”
