I put down my manuscript for several years, filing it away in a folder titled 'Book, Unfinished. ' Then Beth McAuley of The Editing Company stepped into my life. My 'Manuscript Whisperer' gently nuzzled me back to the ring, with calm voice, skill and keen enthusiasm. Beth wasn't going to let go of

Working with Barbara on the index was both a pleasure and a relief. Barbara did an exceptional job with the index, and I was more than a bit relieved to not have to tackle the difficult work myself. The quality of her work was apparent in the detail and precision. Plus, she
