Read what my clients say about working with me as their editor:


From our first email exchange to the manuscript’s final edit, it was a pleasure to work with Sharon Honeycutt. Her keen eye and attention to detail added the polish my manuscript lacked. Not only is Sharon a personable professional who delivered the edits ahead of schedule, her genuine interest in my characters and plot was encouraging and heartwarming. I’ll definitely recommend her services to others and hire her again if I write a second book. ~ Patti Stockdale, If Words Were Birds (currently in querying process)

She did a wonderful job on polishing my manuscript and noting error patterns I make. The changes were appropriate and judicious. All was delivered on time, on budget, and with regular communication. I’ll be using her for the next book in my trilogy. ~ Martin Tessmer, The Three Generals

Sharon is one of the very best in the editing world. I marvel at her command of the Chicago Manual of Style and her ability to spot even the smallest mistakes that are invisible to others. She has a good sense of the flow of the story and will notice overused phrases and inconsistencies in plot and character points. She delivers her work on time and with many useful comments. I have the utmost confidence in Sharon’s work and wouldn’t put out a book without her. ~ Michael Hurley, The Vineyard

I’m extremely happy with the copy editing and proofreading. It was exactly what I wanted, and right on time! ~ J. Matthew Saunders, Daughters of Shadow and Blood, Book 1: Yasamin

I’m very satisfied with the work Sharon did on my manuscript. Her edits and suggestions improved the manuscript and the story flows much better now. She provides very good constructive criticism in a friendly way. I even laughed out loud how she broached some of my mistakes. I highly recommend her services. ~ Alan Petersen, She’s Gone

Once again, wonderful work. She’s been superb in every one of the jobs we’ve done together. HIGHLY recommended!! ~ Dylan Pratt for Scott Pratt, Joe Dillard Series

Sharon’s work was professional and insightful. Her suggestions in how to move some material around for more effective placement was very helpful. Will surely work with her again. ~ Sharon Linnea, Plagues of Eden, Book 4 of Project Eden Thriller Series

There is something in Sharon that I didn’t find in others–passion. I value her comments and suggestions. It helped me, in many ways. I would always use her services in the future. ~ Faye Garnet, unpublished novel

Having worked with an editor once before, Sharon’s work truly exceeded my expectations. She was always upfront about any changes or concerns, and also provided encouragement that was key in the process. She nurtured my passion and put a wonderful shine on my project. I unreservedly recommend her services and look forward to working with Sharon again. The best! ~ Raina McLeod, Death by Misadventure

Sharon did an outstanding job on this project. She was thorough, asked plenty of questions when necessary, and finished well ahead of my deadline. I would hire again, and again, and again. ~ Seth M. Baker, Redemption (The End of the Iron Age, Book 2)


Sharon, I appreciate you and your patience. You rock for taking this project and wowing me with your skill and professionalism. I get to show this baby off with the peace of mind that a true professional cleaned it up! Thank you so much. ~ Kaywanda Lamb, Do It Anyway!

Sharon was honest about what she would accomplish and by when. She stuck to her timelines and the skills and work she committed to. She was extremely clear with the process and it made working with her so easy. She is a true professional. I would absolutely use her again and highly recommend her work ethic! ~ Kirsten Blakemore

Ms. Sharon is stellar in her work. Great communication. Great advice. Completed the work on time and even had a super quick turnaround time after I added in a few more items to my work and asked her for a look-see. Would recommend to all who are novices and experts alike seeking an editor. ~ Haylyn Quill, The Delectable Habit of Losing Weight

I thought my memoir was shaping up to be something good before I hired Sharon, but now that she’s done, I know it is. Sharon was incredibly professional and responsive every step of the way. Her knowledge of the genre and sensitivity in dealing with some very difficult subject matter helped refine my writing into something truly professional. Her advice has been wonderful and I appreciate her time and care in tackling a very emotionally difficult topic. I would hire her again in heartbeat. ~ Sharon Coleman, Only What You Need, A Memoir

Very happy I went with Sharon. Great attention to detail. Very professional and the final manuscript was delivered before the deadline. I would hire her again in a heartbeat! ~ Matthew Loop, Social Media Made Me Rich

Sharon did an excellent job with this copy-editing project. Her edits were thorough and very meticulous across the 250,000 word manuscript. She was extremely prompt in responding to questions and adhered to the project timeline. I would certainly work with her again in the future. ~ Khanjan Mehta, Solving Problems That Matter

The deliverable was exactly what I had hoped for. She was able to give me a good sense of what she would do and how much time it would take her to do it. She is thorough, professional and quite easy to work with. I would recommend her without hesitation. ~ John Austin, Unquestioned Brilliance

Sharon is an exceptional editor. She delivered the work on time and came up with insightful ideas and comments. Real easy to work with. I will be hiring her again. ~ Barry McDonagh, Dare: The New Way to End Anxiety and Stop Panic Attacks

After reviewing approximately 50 applications and being new to the whole process of hiring an editor for the book I wrote, I decided that Sharon was the right person to edit my book. My request was for both substantive editing and copy editing; she proved to be great at both. Sharon was incredibly professional, considerate, and responsive throughout the entire process. For me, the idea of hiring a complete stranger to edit a book that you poured your soul into is very strange. Right off the bat during the interview process, Sharon was able to ease any fear or concern I had with handing over my baby to her. I would definitely work with her again. ~ Aaron Panzer, The Death of Human Interaction

Sharon is a fantastic editor! She is very easy to work with and was very thorough and detailed. As someone who has a doctorate degree and have published numerous articles I expected an editor to have a very high attention to detail and have a strong command of proper grammar rules/usage-Sharon delivered on all. I highly recommend her! ~ Dr. Samuel Dyer, The Medical Science Liaison Career Guide
