"Tiffany is so clear with her notes. Her examples are helpful and everything makes perfect sense. She is a gem and I'm glad I found her. She outwits and out-edits the seasoned people who worked on my novel first. I will recommend her and will use her again for all my editing needs. Beyond impressed!"
~Jennifer Blyth, Author of Escaped the Night 

"I wholeheartedly recommend Tiffany Cole.  She is professional, organized and extremely capable.  She did a fantastic job editing my book and provided a detailed critique to boot.  Tiffany was a pleasure to work with and exceeded my expectations in every way.  I look forward to working with her again."
~Helena Madsen, Author of 'A Guide to Talking About Illness in Your Marriage' and Owner of ChronicMarriage.com
"Tiffany provided an in-depth content and convention edit with her Honest Crits services. Not only did her revisions and suggestions improve where I could not, but any questions I raised with my writing were the exact ones I hoped to engender in my readers. Her insightful perspective satisfied me as a writer and as an editor myself. I would recommend her services for anyone seeking to gain a resourceful, intelligent, reader-friendly insight into their work. Every aspect of the Honest Crits was fair, unbiased critique, from the line-edit to the overall critique worksheet. I couldn't have asked for a more professional interaction at affordable rates and for the service provided. Rest assured, this won't be the last Tiffany has seen of my writing." ~Sierra Carrillo; editor, writer, and soldier

"Tiffany's edits of my novella were very thorough and consistent. I especially liked her flexibility and how often she talked to me on the phone about my book. I'd definitely recommend her editing services to anyone looking for a kind, committed editor!" ~Carmela Foster, Founder and CEO of Fluire Publishing, LLC

"Tiffany Cole is fast becoming one of the most notable authorities on authors, writing, promotions and social media networking. Her review and promotion of my novel THE REMAINS helped propel it to the Top 20 of overall Kindle Bestsellers. Tiff is a class act and a real talent."
~Vincent Zandri, bestselling author of The Remains and The Innocent
"Readers Den is a great service. Tiffany delivers everything she promises and is very professional. I recommend her services."
~Douglas Brown, author of Tamed and the Epertase series.

"I couldn’t be more pleased with the service I received from Tiffany at the Reader's Den. I would highly recommend her to any author interested in an honest straightforward review.”
~Candace Bowen Early, author of Spur of the Moment, The Knight Series, Wicked Embers, and Jack of Hearts

"I really enjoyed having Tiffany review my book. I think the option to pay for more exposure is the best thing I've seen in a while. I found her review of my book to be fair and unbiased, the type of review authors desperately need for their books. When readers go online to read reviews of books, they want honest, unbiased, fair reviews to look through - not 5-star drivel written from the author's 'best friend'. I look forward to working with Tiffany again in the near future, both on the current library of books I have out and on future books I publish."

"Tiffany was wonderful to work with, and by far one of the most professional reviewers I've had the pleasure of spending time with. Her lead up and mentions on social media nearly tripled my website hits and directly contributed to a sales spike during the week her review came out. If you want a review that helps sell your book, Honest Crits is a good investment of your resources!"

I'd struggled with editing this novel for the last few years now, but then my friend and author Breanne Braddy suggested that I send it to Tiffany to edit. I'd read comments of hers on Breanne's website, so thought I'd go for it. And, after only a few weeks, she was able to get it back to me with a paragraph-by-paragraph critique that I've been using in my editing. I definitely recommend Honest Crits.
"My review was thorough and fair, and made available at readers' sites as I expected. Communication with Tiffany was excellent. I recommend this service!"
