Julie Sturgeon edited my debut novel for Tule Publishing Group. I had no idea what to expect from the process, but Julie was encouraging the whole way.  Best of all, she was quick to respond to my questions.  Her comments made me delve deeper into my characters’ motivations. She made suggestions on how to improve the story but left decisions up to me. Her approach kept me confident we would complete all of the edits on time. I’m already applying what I learned as I write my next book. It was a great experience, and I’d be delighted to work with her on future...

There’s no one’s professional opinion I trust more than Julie Sturgeon. We’ve worked on several books together, and she always manages to pair storytelling intuition with hard-earned, extensive knowledge.

I look forward to working with Julie on future...

What I really valued while working with Julie was her willingness to talk through my reactions to her suggestions, and my vision for addressing the necessary changes BEFORE I wrote them. This avoided unnecessary back and forth / rewrites. In the end, I rewrote more than a handful of chapters in my manuscript to address her feedback, but the book still felt like it was mine … just a much better version than I started with!

“Julie is a whizz with her red pen. I know when I get my manuscript back, I’ll stress out for a bit but know that once I go through all of Julie’s edits and suggestions, my manuscript is going to be so much better for it.  Julie is a great editor and I love working with her.”

“”I give Julie Sturgeon my highest recommendation. Her skills and suggestions have shaped and improved the series, as well as strengthened my writing style. The attention to detail is astounding, and she apparently does not sleep, ever, based on the responsiveness to my questions at all hours of the day or night. If you want professional, personable editing with someone who will advance your writing skills and make your manuscript shine, then look no further than Julie.” “
