These are some of the things people are saying about working with Belinda Pollard:
Conrad Parsons, CEO Youth For Christ Australia
Conrad is the author of Understanding evangelists, and currently CEO of Youth for Christ Australia.
“Belinda is an exceptional editor. Her thinking is crystal clear, she adds significant value to what I write and no mistake or weak idea gets past her. I have been dealing with her for 16 years and every time she delivers more than I expect for a lower price than I should be paying. I would never even consider looking for anyone else to edit my writing.”
Molly Greene, Novelist
Molly is the author of Blog It! The author’s guide to building a successful online brand, and the Gen Delacourt mystery series.
“I’ve had the great good fortune of working with Belinda on my last two projects. Her suggestions for content and structural enhancements such as plot and character development are intuitive, spot-on, and jaw-dropping good. Belinda’s guidance has not only improved my work but made me a better, more creative, and much more skilled and capable writer. I’ve worked with other editors in the past, but now that I have Belinda in my corner, I wouldn’t consider working with anyone else. Ever!”
Dr Peter Stebbins, PsyCare
Peter is the author and publisher of several books including You can cope! Overcoming stress, anxiety and depression and Turning stress into success, and a range of relaxation and organisational psychology training CDs. He is also the publisher of Living beyond pain by Ilan Cohen, and author of Wholly coping with Dr John Warlow.
“I have worked with Belinda for many years and find her services to be high value, client focused and flexible and adaptive to feedback. Her grasp of a diverse range of writing fields is quite impressive as is her design and desktop capability – excellent value for money – and someone I will use for the duration of my business career.”
Sophie Cayeux, Author
Sophie is the author of The Mauritius Migrants women’s fiction series, including More than just a game of chance, due for publication in 2015.
“Working with Belinda felt very special. She really cared. She immersed herself into my writing. She took the time to get into my head. She edited it just like I would have done myself – except I hadn’t been able to do it. An exceptional experience.”
Dr Ernest F. Crocker, Consultant Physician and Author
Ern worked with Belinda through the development and editing of his book about the spiritual side of healing. Published by Authentic UK in 2011 under the title Nine minutes past midnight: A young emergency doctor comes face to face with his not so silent partner, Ern’s book was reprinted within months, and is now being published in Germany.
“I found Belinda to be highly professional in her approach, personable, creative and of high integrity. She was able to meet my time line and provided her services at a very reasonable cost. I have no reservations.”
Dr John Warlow, Psychiatrist and Author
John worked with Belinda in the international self-publishing of his textbook for counsellors, Living wholeness: The Christian wholeness framework for professional counsellors. His story is told in this case study.
“What Belinda did, apart from being available, helpful, advising yet not taking over… was to take a piece of clay, already shaped by 2 other editors, and make it into a sculpture which was what I wanted it to look like, but did not have the skills to design myself.”
