Alison has been my copy editor for four huge, complex fantasy novels, and her attention to detail is second to none. She asks insightful questions, she’s patient beyond belief, and, as a bonus, she has a great sense of humor and is lovely to work with. Her efforts elevate mine and make my books so much better. She’s also extraordinarily good at getting a word count down from astronomical heights to something more reasonable. Hire her!

Claire Legrand, New York Times–bestselling author of the Empirium series

After over a decade in publishing, both traditional and indie, I can say for sure that Alison is the best copy editor I’ve ever worked with. She edits with an eye for pacing, plot, character, and voice, so she doesn’t just make your book correct, she makes it better. I know my manuscripts are in safe hands with her keen editing eye!

Lauren Morrill, author of Meant to Be and More Than a Feeling

Alison Cherry has a sharp editorial eye and a skilled hand. As copy editor for our online publication that had a new issue of short fiction every month, she proved herself indispensable with tight turnarounds and multiple projects. She is exceptionally thorough and always respectful of an author’s voice and intention. I would trust her with anything I’ve written.

Nova Ren Suma, Co-Editor-in-Chief of FORESHADOW: A Serial YA Anthology (2018–2019) and New York Times–bestselling author

Alison Cherry is meticulous, thorough, and one of the finest editors I’ve ever worked with. She has a keen eye for detail, and she delivers feedback in a professional, digestible way that inspires writers to improve their work. She’s also a master of paring things down—if you need to cut a few thousand words out of your manuscript, Alison is your girl!

Mackenzi Lee, New York Times–bestselling author of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

Alison is worth her weight in gold! I can’t believe how much her copy edits improved my book. Absolutely loved working with her!

Kit Vincent, author of Of Feathers and Thorns

Alison is THE BEST. I wasn’t sure what kind of edit I wanted on my book, and she came through with an extremely helpful editorial letter that summed everything up in a few pages (and reassured me greatly!), then gave me margin notes throughout the entire manuscript. She’s so delightful to work with, always answers messages promptly, charges fairly, and delivers her work early when she can manage it. She’s just incredible and always makes me feel like a million dollars!

Maya Walker, author of Ever Your Affectionate

Working with Alison was a fantastic experience. She offered me a hybrid line and copy edit package after I described what I was looking for. She was able to start the project and complete it much sooner than her original timeframe, which was a pleasant surprise. I also appreciated the few extra notes Alison left on the document to point out tiny continuity or logic errors that I hadn’t caught in my dozens of read-throughs and self-edits. Alison really made the manuscript flow and sing with the tiniest little changes in nearly every paragraph. I look forward to working with her again.
