(You do your homework. I like that.)
Wondering what previous clients have to say about the quality of my work or what it’s like work with me as a person?
Yesenia Vargas is amazing to work with. She has edited four of my novels, and I have every intention of using her, if she is available, for ALL of my future work. As a new author, her consideration for my apprehension at turning my work over to someone really sold me on her. I started with a ten-page sample. When I received it back, I knew I had to work with her.
Over this process, I have also come to consider Yesenia a friend. She absolutely had the best interest in my voice and my work. I have sought her advice on many aspects when it comes to self publishing. She is patient, kind, funny, driven and just a wonderful person to work with. I would recommend her to any author seeking editing services.

The work [Yesenia] did on my manuscript is fantastic—all I was expecting was copyediting, in the sense that I figured [she]’d pick up on grammatical and spelling errors. I got that, but [she was] also able to clarify my writing; the work flows better now. It seems to “pop.”
By the time I sent my manuscript off to be edited, I’d read and re-read it so many times I was beginning to doubt myself. I wondered if it would be worth publishing. When I got it back and saw how polished it looked thanks to [Yesenia’s] editing, that apprehension evaporated.
But the thing I can’t get over is how clear everything seems now. Little things like comma placement or breaking up long sentences into smaller ones make a huge difference, and it’s not something I would have been able to do myself. [Writers] need an outside–and experienced–eye to pick it up. [Yesenia’s] done a great job, and I’m very thankful for it!

Yesenia Vargas is an amazing proofreader. She couldn’t have impressed me more and is especially skilled with correct comma placement. She caught some very glaring typos my editor overlooked and saved me much embarrassment. Yesenia will only improve your work and is a pleasure to work with. She’s proofread three of my books, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her for any of my projects going forward.
I hired Yesenia for my debut collection of short stories, Bombay Bhel. Her proofreading service was very thorough and reasonably priced. She also gave me valuable feedback on the overall tone and content of the book. She responded promptly to inquiries and finished the edits ahead of schedule. I highly recommend her services.

When I began my search for a copyeditor I decided to ask other published authors who they would recommend. I had several authors suggest their editors, and I found a few online. I decided to narrow my options down to three based on their testimonials, pricing options, and professionalism.
In the few short emails I shared with Yesenia, I knew she would be a perfect match for my editing needs. After my ten-page sample edit, I knew I had made the right choice.
Yesenia met her editing deadline and went above and beyond her editing services. I felt comfortable talking with her about the progress of the manuscript, and she explained things to me in a way that was constructive and professional. I cannot wait to work with Yesenia again on my next project, and I am so thankful I found my perfect match the first time around.

I’m so lucky to have found Yesenia to work with. She is amazing at what she does, not only helping with what I expect, but going above and beyond to make my books shine brighter. She’s friendly, willing to answer any questions I have, and a pleasure to communicate with. What’s more, she’s extremely affordable. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a good editor. I personally look forward to working with her again in the future.
