"We've found it a monumental task to cover the work of writing, promoting, and editing. It was definitely a wise decision to enlist Carrie to proofread Val's novel, The Deceit of Riches. Her meticulous work, with a careful eye for details and knowledgeable advice about current stylistic trends, helped us to rest easy, knowing that our publication was clean and correct. She can expect to see us again with book two."
