Recommendations for Leslie Stitt and her editorial work.


“Leslie is a conscientious editor and writer who focuses on balancing company interests with author needs. She works to ensure the most marketable product possible and maintains very strong relationships with her authors.” –Christopher Robbins, CEO, Gibbs Smith

“I worked with Leslie for several years and she is a fantastic editor! She is very knowledgeable and dedicated to her work. Anyone would be lucky to have her involved in a project, whether writing, editing, proofreading, or indexing.” –Melissa Barlow, senior editor, Gibbs Smith

“I worked with Leslie on several projects. She is very organized, easy to work with, prompt to respond, and cheerful. As the project manager, she made sure that things went smoothly every step of the way. In fact, I believe a couple of our projects were finished ahead of schedule. I would recommend her skills to anyone who’s looking for help.”

–Maralee Oleson Nelson, MGraphicDesign

“If you’re looking for an editor, may I highly recommend Leslie Stitt. Leslie has edited three books for me, and since I found her I don’t want to work with anyone else. She makes the effort to connect with me and to understand my goals, but that doesn’t stop her from being tough on me in terms of eliminating stoppers and excesses. She’s a comfortable grammarian, which only means that she is at home with the rules enough to know when and how to break them.

My work is not light reading, so I think what I most appreciate about Leslie is her keen sense of readability. I have been the beneficiary of that talent, and if I can get my shoulder to the wheel, I will be the beneficiary again soon.”
