Testimonials

Over the last few years I have used EMSA Publishing for my editing needs. Elise Abram is very thorough when she attacks a book draft, catching big and small errors alike in both grammar and content. She delivers a clean manuscript in a reasonable time period at competitive rates.

I highly recommend her services.

—Author Marlene Bierworth

“As a three-time school-founding board of directors member and a former college instructor, I take pride in having assisted young students and adult professionals in mastering academic material. However, when I endeavored to find an expert to assist me in the layout process of my self-published book, I encountered specialists who would not talk to me by phone or virtually. It was obvious that getting answers to questions about the multiple nuances of self-publishing would be laborious and time-consuming, working with “email-only professionals.” I count my lucky stars that I found Elise, herself an author. Elise is supportive, suggesting avenues I had not considered; timely in her work and responses; knowledgeable; and a joy to work with. The anxiety I felt at my lack of self-publishing knowledge was quickly quelled as I chose a fee package that allowed for “face-to-face” virtual meetings to meet my preference. I will work with her again next year on another project.”

Nancy Heleno

“I had finished writing my book “From Tehran to Toronto” in 2017, and I was looking for a good editor to edit or revise it. I was attending a weekly meeting at Vaughan Library to meet some other writers and publishers, and there I met Ms. Elise Abram. Oh, she was fantastic!  She started editing or correcting my book. With her helpful ideas, I learned how to fix my mistakes and improve my knowledge.  Without any hassle, she completed editing my job very quickly! I really cannot say enough good things about Elise and her excellent job. I am so thankful for her help and would highly recommend her to everyone.”

Firoozeh Ardeshiri, author of From Tehran to Toronto: One Woman’s Journey

“I have over 130 books published on Amazon. I’ve self edited, (poorly), and I’ve used several professional editors with varying results. Elise is far above any I have used thus far. She provided suggestions to improve the wording of my manuscript, as well as improving the flow.

“I’ve always felt I wrote fairly clean copy but she highlighted over 2,800 points in a 40,000 word book, and she delivered it on time. She did all this without embarrassing me, too. Elise is the best editor I’ve ever had.”

—Susan Leigh Carlton, historical Western romance author

“The comments in your email are excellent observations and suggestions and I appreciate your input immensely. Your explanations are very clear in the email and I look forward to tackling this project using your comments and suggestions.”

—Anita Stairs-Oberlick, author of Helen the Transartist

“I recently had some editing services done by Elise Abram and I am extremely pleased, to say the least! She provided a complete edit of my work in progress, corrected grammar and formatting errors, made helpful suggestions and gave a thorough analysis of my work. I really appreciated the time, effort and consideration she took and was thrilled with how quickly she was able to complete the services for me. Her fees are more than fair. I highly recommend Elise to everyone needed editing or review, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks again, Elise.”

—Tracy Brian, author of Head in the Clouds: Diagnosing ADHD – The Chapter Book

“I used Elise as the editor on my last book and she was fantastic. I’ve gone through four editors with my first two books and was never happy. On my 3rd book I found Elise and an editor for as long as I write. She is that good.”

—Richard Houston, author of A Treasure to Die For
