The Page Two difference

Collaboration, respect, intuition, and skill–what you get when you turn to Page Two.

“Christina did a developmental edit and a line edit for my self-help book based on my experience living with cancer. Both edits were immensely valuable in helping me clarify the main themes, organization, and overall flow of the manuscript. Christina is detail-oriented in the most useful way, and helped me maintain my own voice while raising my writing game. Finally, she is very collaborative and answered all of my questions and concerns promptly and helpfully. I would gladly work with Christina in the future without hesitation, and invite her to improve the text of this recommendation!”

Andrew Trice, author of the upcoming Cancer Chameleon

“Christina was recommended to me by an acquaintance whose book I had admired. I hired her first for a developmental edit. I was impressed that she clearly grasped the themes of the book and, of more importance, zeroed in on the plot weaknesses and offered excellent suggestions on how to improve the story. I was so impressed with her work that I hired her again for a line edit, on which she did an excellent job, and continued with her through proofreading. I plan to use Christina again when the next book is ready.”

“Christina at Page Two Editing provided the editing for my book, Waiting on the Outside. Her attention to detail and ability to see how it could be improved by changing the flow, deleting unnecessary words, and even moving whole chapters made my manuscript so much better. She was diligent, responsive, and managed to keep my ‘voice’ intact. Her ability to spot errors and improve the overall flow and story line was essential to making my book better. She also listened to my concerns and was responsive to my needs. I would use her services again anytime and highly recommend her.”

Sharron Grodzinsky, author of Waiting on the Outside (services provided: developmental editing, line editing, copyediting)

“My book contract was on the verge of falling apart, so I asked my publisher if I could try to find my own editor. After researching bestselling memoirs and then figuring out who edited them, I found Christina Frey. She is a real professional and her developmental and line editing services brought out the best in me and Nobody’s Girl. Finding someone who was able to edit a memoir like mine was a godsend. I felt respected and listened to throughout the entire process and actually miss our work sessions now that Christina has finished editing my book. I hope to hire Christina again for my next book and would recommend her to anyone who needs a professional editor who really listens to and respects the author.”

“After receiving disappointing feedback on my novel, I hired Christina to give it a professional line and copy edit. Not only did she help me clean it up, but she challenged me to tighten the plot and take the characters to a deeper emotional level. Now it’s finally the book it was meant to be. With Christina, you get more than just an editor. You get an experienced writing coach who will guide you in improving your storytelling and technique.”

Stephanie Saye, author of Little 15 (services provided: line editing, copyediting)

“I tried other editing services and every time was disappointed with the cursory product I received. I needed real developmental editing that could be effectively implemented, and Page Two Editing was the only service able to provide specific, in-depth results that could be applied to my work. I can’t thank Christina enough for assisting me in taking my book to the next level.”

Paul Hollis, author of The Hollow Man (services provided: developmental editing)

“Since 2007, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Christina on a variety of writing and editing projects. She has, of course, all the skills of a good editor. But what truly sets her apart is her instinctive sense of balance—her ability to apply the rules and polish a document while preserving an author’s unique voice. It’s just one of the many reasons I trust my words in Christina’s capable hands.”

“Christina’s eagle eye can spot a grammatical or spelling error from a mile away. I could always trust her to catch any mistakes I missed. She was also very pleasant to work with and great at suggesting new ideas!”

Wanda Waterman, freelance writer and columnist (services provided: line editing, copyediting, fact checking)

“The best thing about Christina is her keen eye for detail; I am always assured that no inconsistencies or errors, big or small, will go missed. I also appreciate her straightforward honesty regarding the strengths and weaknesses of my writing. She can bring an ordinary piece of writing to an acceptable international standard, and I am privileged to have her as my editor.”

Rajni Mala Khelawan, author of the upcoming Kalyana (services provided: developmental editing, line editing, copyediting)

“Christina is an outstanding editor who has worked with me on three different books: Ripple, A Tale of Hope and Redemption; Ripple: YAV; and I Run: A Novel. If I could give her eleven out of ten stars for the quality of her work, I would.”

E.L. Farris, author of bestsellers Ripple: A Tale of Hope and Redemption and I Run: A Novel (services provided: developmental editing, line editing, copyediting)
