Some Love from our Clients

“Ms. Mhyana edited my fiction manuscript. Her work was thorough and she gave very insightful comments, from punctuation and grammar to the overall structure of the book, which greatly helped to improve and refine my writing.”

“I knew from the first edit on the page that Jalina was the editor for my book of translated Tuscan fairy tales. She was clear, consistent and meticulous, and obviously had a good grasp of the tone I was trying to capture. I never felt as though her hand was heavier than strictly necessary and when she was finished with her edits (and I was finished revising) I felt as if my manuscript was shiny like a new penny. I wholeheartedly recommend her services!”

“To fully appreciate Ms. Mhyana’s editing work with our publication, it is necessary to clarify that we are extremely demanding. At Many of Them magazine, we are committed to respecting the voices of the various artists we collaborate with and to capturing the nuances of their language without compromising the spontaneity of conversation. I’ve worked with many editors during my time as Editor-in-chief, but Ms. Mhyana has become our go-to person. She has been a great support since the beginning, not only owing to her good disposition and erudition but also thanks to her deep knowledge of the English language and her innate style of writing. Through her stringent editing and sympathetic, light-handed ghostwriting, she maintained the authentic voice of every artist we interviewed – quite a challenge, as most of them are not native English speakers. I will definitely recommend Ms. Mhyana to other editors, and I myself would love to work with her again in the future.”

Pedro Canicoba, Editor-in-chief, Many of Them Magazine

“Working with Jalina on preparing my short stories for submission has been an absolute pleasure. Her critiques are clear and professional, her knowledge of grammar and formatting are invaluable, and she is like having an angel editor on your shoulder. I look forward to sending future writings her way.”
