[Respected voice talent for audiobooks] spoke really, really highly of you, Anne. He said that both he and [voice talent for Disney] have commented numerous times to one another about how wonderful you’ve been to work with. They really appreciate how organized and detail oriented you are – and I couldn’t agree more.

I’ve gone over all your edits, and I can’t thank you enough for the thoroughness that you’ve put into the effort. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you.

Anne Nicolai is the most amazing writer I know…an experienced public relations person, a great writer and very creative. I have used her for my own company and for many of my clients. I know she will do a great job for you.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU before we talk tomorrow. Why? Because I spent about 5 hours “playing” with all the chapters in my book today (like a big jigsaw puzzle), and by thinking about things differently (thanks to your recent emails in particular), I felt liberated…. Through ditching and combining previous chapters—plus culling the deadwood—I can see it becoming trim, taught and terrific!

Mark Molitor, author, Off the Plank (self-help book in progress), Adelaide, Australia

Anne is truly the best line editor I have ever worked with. She has a good work ethic, she’s meticulous, she communicates with her clients, and she doesn’t miss anything.

I loved the way you edited my post. I do enjoy telling stories and the blog is an outlet for my expression!

Excellent read…even got me to click the link to your site to finish the story and comment—now THAT is an accomplishment!

Anne’s communications expertise and creativity can turn any subject into a compelling story. Outstanding work.

Anne put together a first rate marketing plan that was complete and hit the target audience. And, it was affordable. She got us regional media exposure and helped to edit a monthly column in a local business journal. She was able to take our writings and put them in terms for a layman to understand and added wit and wisdom to the articles. She is still relied upon for business guidance, insight, creativity and contacts.

Jim Fox, managing director, Fox Lawson & Associates, a division of Gallagher Benefits Services, Inc., Itasca, Illinois (benefits and compensation consulting)

I know of no faster learner, no more entrepreneurial mind and no better pinpoint communicator than Anne.
