Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur has a unique and personal way of connecting with a writer to help them publish their best work. She edits perfectly and transforms a story until it flows with grace. Her knowledge and passion for books are apparent in everything she does. I feel very blessed that she has edited my last three novels, and I highly recommend her for any editing or copywriting needs.
- Leigh Ebberwein, Author


"I am an author who has had 14 books published by Harper Collins and major Catholic publishers. Patrice MacArthur is the best editor I have ever worked with. She is prompt, accurate, understands my work and beautifully helps shape my books. She is an enormous asset to my writing.  I can't recommend her highly enough."

- Deacon Eddie Ensley PhD.

Patrice gave my manuscript the final polish it needed, catching the little errors and missteps I’d become blind to. She was also able to turn around my job very quickly as my deadline was rapidly approaching!

"Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur edited and formatted by debut novel for publication. She edited my work thoroughly and thoughtfully. I was pleased with how it turned out. She is knowledgeable about grammar and caught many more mistakes than I could have on my own. She also completed all of her work in a timely fashion, if anything much quicker than I would have expected.She also did a great job formatting my book for Kindle and CreateSpace. She was quick to make any changes I requested and professional all the way through. I was very satisfied with how my book turned out and I would recommend her to anyone for both editing and formatting. She saved me from the frustration of trying to format it myself and when she was done editing and formatting, I felt confident about publishing my book because I knew it was in good shape after she’d worked on it."
