She has a passion for the story...
I have 80 traditionally published novels – all with a team of professional editors and copy readers – and felt quite panicky when, after accepting an invitation to participate in an indie published anthology with other USA Today bestselling authors, I was faced with putting my work out to my readers without the security of my ‘team’ behind me.
The only person I could think of that I could trust with my work was Ali Williams. Not just because of her qualifications and skills, but because she has a passion for the story. I trusted her to be honest to that passion. And she was. She read, not only with precision to grammatical detail and style, but with a critical eye to the integrity of the story. Many people have editing skills. Grammar and structure are things you can learn.
But what Ali brings to the page, in addition to those learned skills, the ‘ear’ for the story, is far more critical to the success of a book. And not something you can go to school to learn. I am extremely grateful, as my book releases this week, that it has Ali’s seal of approval.

My manuscript was transformed...
I sent my manuscript to Ali Williams for feedback and was thrilled by the prompt response I received. Ali is fast, efficient and detailed and I appreciated the considered comments she made on my work. She has an innate ability to look beyond mistakes and see the road the author is travelling. After following her simple, concise and perceptive suggestions, my manuscript was transformed. I highly recommend using Ali.
Multi-published romance author
Ali’s feedback as consulting editor during the shortlisting and editing process for Tongue in Cheek has been incredible; she is knowledgeable, practical and positive, with thoughtful insight that bears in minds the needs of reader, author and publisher. A valuable asset to any project like this.
