I have received numerous emails of praise and thanks from the authors whose books I’ve edited over the years. Here are a few:
Janet Angelo is an excellent editor/publisher and is very good at her job. When I was looking for someone to edit my book, Janet came highly recommended. She did an exceptionally outstanding job of editing my book. Janet seemed to tune in to my style of writing. Any suggestions or alterations were done seamlessly and fitted comfortably with the book’s ambience and flow. Janet and I are thousands of miles apart, never met or knew each other beforehand, but she managed to form a special bond with me and honed to my way of thinking. The suggestions Janet proposed were sensible and sensitive and within keeping with the book’s mood and tone.
Janet is an extremely good publisher as well. She made my book look stunning and so professional that it can happily stand alongside well-known authors and their publications. As an indendent publisher, Janet is very good at her job. I firmly believe it is for this reason that my book is so well published. This is because she cares about her authors and looks after them more carefully as compared to commercial publishers. She has more time to develop an individual relationship with her author clients. I feel Janet looked after my literal interests personally, and I’m special. I truly believe that my book, 10 Seconds That Changed My Life by Iain M. MacLeod, is much better as a result of Janet’s expertise. I will most definitely be seeking Janet’s professional skills again for my next book and subsequent ones. A good editor/publisher of Janet’s calibre and thoughtfulness is not easy to come by, and I am extremely fortunate to have found her.
“I had the good fortune of having Janet edit my book, A Bronx Boy’s Tale. For that reason, there was no other choice for Eileen and me when it came to selecting an editor and publisher for our soon to be published book, Married With Cancer. If you need an editor or publisher, you won’t find a more gifted professional than Janet.”
Frantz Lamour, Be a Disciple Make a Disciple: Following Jesus’s Example:
“Finding an editor is not difficult these days because there are many, but it is hard to find a qualified editor who does everything with excellence, accuracy and professionalism. Janet Angelo is that editor who worked tirelessly and efficiently to perfect my book from beginning to end, including finding the perfect name for the book and making it enjoyable to read. Her intelligence, diligence, patience, confidence and love for what she does surpass all the experiences I’ve had with other books I ‘ve published. Communication was efficient and effective throughout the editing process. Janet, your editing is exceptionally good and edifying to enhance God’s kingdom. Your work has led me to have strong confidence in you, and it is my immense pleasure to recommend you to any authors who want to publish a well edited book. Your editing work stands out to be the best-prepared piece compare to all others. You will definitely be my editor for my future books. Keep up the good work!”
William Quigley, Joy Bliss This: A Teacher’s Journey:
“When I was searching for a good editor, I wanted to find someone who could edit but also help me with the technical aspects of publishing. I knew I had a book. I knew there were some good parts to it. But the honest truth is that I didn’t know what I had or what to do to make the book a thing. I emailed you and about twenty-five other editors. Finally, it was down to three, and I picked you. It’s been an amazing journey, and now, I have a book with a beautiful cover, and it reads as well as anyone could make my words sound. (There’s a saying in photography that a great image happens before you push the button; all the tricks and bells and whistles can’t make an average image great.) It is so wonderful to read my words and to know that you made them sing. And for that I owe you far more than you could ever possibly know. I appreciate all of your effort and expertise. This book never would have happened without your help. I hope the world gets something valuable out of my book, and my words will matter to at least one future teacher. Thank you so much, Janet. What you have done for my book is indicative of the degree to which you care. You have been an advocate and a hand holder, and I thank you.”
Jill L. Baker, The Greensboro Blockhouse Project:
“It is with honor and enthusiasm that I write on behalf of Janet Angelo, IndieGo Publishing, LLC. When I first contacted Janet about publishing my volume, The Greensboro Blockhouse Project: An Historical and Archaeological Investigation in Greensboro, Vermont, I had little knowledge or understanding of independent publishing, just experience with traditional academic publishing companies. As both editor and publisher, Janet expertly executed each step of the process. As an editor, Janet is meticulous and thorough in both mechanics of the text (grammar, spelling, and punctuation) and organizing the logic and flow of the discussion. Her attention to these details helped make my manuscript stronger. As a publisher, Janet brilliantly formatted the layout of the book and guided me through the technical aspects of the publication process.
“Publishing my book with Janet was a collaborative and interactive experience. As the author, I was involved in the production, including decisions regarding layout, font, cover art, etc. This is in stark contrast to my experience with traditional publishing houses who tend to make these kinds of decisions without consulting the author. Throughout the entire project, Janet was attentive, responded to email very quickly, answered my questions in detail and with patience, and she diligently completed the project in a timely manner. I am not only impressed by the quality of Janet’s work but also with her honesty and integrity which were evident throughout the publication process.
“In every way, my experience of working with Janet was extremely positive and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the finished product. I will definitely publish future projects with Janet.”
“I am a busy mother and professional who has published two books, one through a larger self-publishing service and my second through IndieGo Publishing with Janet Angelo. Janet’s services stand out from the rest for many reasons, and I am thoroughly pleased with the results. She offers that great balance of close and timely involvement but with enough space for my own creative process and busy schedule. With IndieGo Publishing, I received multiple layers of editing including developmental editing to help me with the flow of ideas and overall construction, as well as copyediting for grammar and punctuation. She educated me about how to market my book successfully and offered creative suggestions about interior and exterior design that were very important to my own process and the final product. Working with Janet, I have developed a creative relationship to walk through the entire process of publishing and to support the final product. I already have an idea for my next book and can’t wait to publish with Janet in the future. I recommend her without reservation.”
“An author often stands so close to the story that you literally can’t see the gaps and the inconsistencies even after multiple overhauls. This is where your editor pulls you up short and steers you in the right direction. Of course you know your story. Of course you know the characters, but your editor knows what the reader can figure out, what needs to be said, and what is just a distraction. Of course you’ll want to keep your voice; a good editor knows that, and Janet is such an editor. Working with Janet has taught me that you have to keep a dialogue going on all manner of things if the book is to end up being the best it can be. Janet’s knowledge and experience of the publishing industry has been invaluable in shaping my books and my writing.”
Smita Battacharya, He Knew a Firefly:
“Janet was an exceptionally involved and dedicated editor. Her encouragement throughout the process of editing made it an enjoyable phase. I liked how she was careful that my book retains its multicultural flavor, and she added to its uniqueness rather than take away anything. I changed the ending based on her suggestion and definitely made it a better book than before. She was sensitive of deadlines, kept me informed of her progress and had a keen eye for detail. I was lucky to have her as an editor early on in my writing career.”
Juliet Y. Mark, The Queendom of Evlantis and Sephora’s Revenge:
“Publishing is an exciting adventure, especially for the first-time author. In my transition from writer to published author, I first used the world’s largest self-publishing platform to publish my first book in the Unfallen Series. I had to make all kinds of decisions that I was not qualified to make, and I knew it. I decided to publish Sephora’s Revenge with Janet, but I also decided to republish The Queendom of Evlantis with her. It has been a wonderful experience. I am no longer making decisions I am not qualified to make (guessing). Instead, Janet has been there every step of the way to offer the benefit of her many years of publishing wisdom. With “the giant” I was navigated through a myriad of cafeteria type services. With Janet, I am always in touch with the one person who oversees all the details of publishing, leaving me more time to write. I could write a novella about Janet’s virtues: her empathy, her expertise, her insight, her sense of humor, her accountability, her compassion, her flexibility, her creativity, her vision, her friendship…. It would be impossible to quantify the advantages of switching from an indie-giant to an indie-genius. My books are better with Janet Angelo’s expertise than they were before I hired her. Janet has a vested interest in my success, and her contributions to my tales are priceless.”
Joseph Rodarick Law, Living Greatness:
“I have been working with Janet since 2009. She is reliable, capable and professional. I wholeheartedly recommend her service to anyone who needs professional editing.”
Norbert Weinberg, Courage of the Spirit:
“I am very pleased that I chose Janet Angelo of IndieGo Publishing to edit and publish my new book, Courage of the Spirit. Not only has she edited the text with fine detail, cleaning errors and making sure that the language flows, but she has also made recommendations that make sure the context flows as well. In addition, as a publisher, she has made sure that the text matches the formatting of the different ebook and print companies, supervised the quality for best results, and given me tools to help make for a successful launch. I could never have navigated these pitfalls on my own nor waited forever for a major publishing house to discover me. Thank you, Janet.”
Vickie L. Peach Wilkins, If Horses Could Talk: Tails of Two Mustangs:
“Janet, you wisely suggested that I get in touch with the Spirit of Blackjack Mountain, which I was able to do quite by happy accident. They heard about my book, got a copy, and were absolutely thrilled. They want to put the book on their website to help feed the wild Mustangs. My book is doing far above my immediate expectation for only being out one month.”
Catherine McClintock, Brazil through Irish Eyes:
“Janet, I really appreciate the personal service you offer. It was so reassuring to communicate with one person rather than a company, and know that to you, I was a person rather than a faceless number. Thank you for your endless patience in guiding me step by step from start to finish when my insufficient knowledge of computer technology was holding things up. I know you put a lot of time into getting the manuscript just right for publication, and thanks to you, the final creation looks fabulous. As if that wasn’t sufficient, you went on to create not just one eBook but several different formats to cover all eventualities to make my book as widely available as possible. Many, many thanks for everything!”
