“I was not
born a writer, although I did have a story to tell. Judy helped
turn the story into a book; her grammatical and organizational
skills polished my work into a marketable book I can be proud
of. Not only is her service affordable, she is efficient, prompt
and very easy to work with. I would recommend Judy Serrano to
anyone desiring their story to be shaped into a book.”
Serrano helped get my book, Zamboni, P.I. By Default ready for
publication. The manuscript needed a lot of attention and she
helped by not only editing but also offering suggestions to
improve the final submission. She was thorough and stayed with
my project until it was completed and ready for final submission
to the publisher. I believe that anyone employing her services
will be pleased."
