“Deb is an editing wizard. She’s not only able to identify weaknesses in critical elements like plot, pacing and characterization, she gives specific feedback on how to improve all elements in the story. She’s worth her weight in gold.”
Annika Martin/Carolyn Crane
“I’m always so amazed at the things Deb is able to catch—and so grateful for the smart ideas and insights she offers. She really knows how to push a story to the next level. I feel lucky to have found her.”
Nina Lane
“Deborah is an incredible editor—smart, insightful, honest, and with an exceptional knowledge of overall story and character arcs, as well as the details of the plot itself. She not only helps you look at your work from a new angle, but provides valuable suggestions for how to improve and strengthen your writing. I have always been so impressed with the consistent excellence of her work. She is truly an author’s dream editor.”
Shirley Wells
“After eight books and counting, I am still in awe of Deb’s professionalism, her attention to detail and her amazing insight. Apart from weeding out typos, grammatical errors and clunky sentence structure, she questions every plot flaw and minor inconsistency, and makes suggestions for adding depth, heightening suspense and so much more. In short, she takes a story and makes it shine. Long gone are the days when I would send a book out into the world before Deb has worked her magic. She’s a delight to work with and I can’t thank her enough for what she’s brought to my books and my writing.”

“Every author needs a secret weapon. With her years of experience, critical insight and attention to detail, Deb Nemeth is mine.”
Jeffe Kennedy
“Deb Nemeth is easily the most thorough developmental editor I’ve ever worked with. She has an eye for both detail and the overall story and character arc, along with a gift for bringing out the best in every story. She is also unflinching in her allegiance to the story and pushing the author to dig deep. Highly recommend her! Deb edits all of my indie work and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Kat Latham
“Working with Deb is one of the best experiences of my publishing career. Not only is she brilliantly insightful about story structure and characterization, but she is unfailingly friendly, encouraging and professional. She has edited five of my books so far, most of which have been named Recommended Reads at Dear Author, a status that immediately made their sales shoot up. When I decided to try self-publishing, it was a no-brainer to hire Deb. Anyone fortunate enough to work with her will tell you the same: Deb is one of the best in the business!”
Loreth Anne White
“I’ve worked with Deb on two romantic suspense/thrillers and will work with her again in a heartbeat. I value her ability to see the big picture, as well as her fine attention to the details and idiosyncrasies of language and grammar, but above all, I respect her knowledge, and her grasp of the various genres and the industry. Bottom line, I trust her input.”
Nancy Naigle
“I’ve enjoyed the opportunity of having Deb Nemeth do developmental and line edits on multiple projects. She provides clear direction, and I can count on her to deliver my edits on time with value-added content ideas and suggestions. She’s a true partner, bringing her years of experience to help me showcase my stories and produce a quality product, while allowing my voice to shine. I’ve learned so much through the editing process with Deb.”
Brenda Buchanan
“Deborah Nemeth brings a professional, collaborative approach to her editing projects. I’m a better writer—more aware of both my good and bad habits—thanks to my work with her. Deb respects my vision, and with a light but sure hand helps me find my way when I get lost in the fog. In addition to her strong technical skills, she communicates well and has a lovely sense of humor. Working with Deb is an absolute pleasure.”
Solace Ames
“Deborah Nemeth edited two novels for me. As a testimony to her skills as an editor, both have won awards, one from Publishers Weekly and the other from RT Magazine. I can’t say enough good things about her editing. It’s thorough, thoughtful, communicative, and creative. Sometimes as a writer, when part of your novel isn’t working and you know it, you might feel lost, confused and desperate, like the pilot of an airplane about to crash in the dark. And at that point of despair I hear Deborah coming onto the radio, giving landing instructions, and lighting up the runway. I’m dead serious. If you’re also serious about your writing and need a good editor…get Deborah!”
Rebecca Paula
“Deborah has an amazing gift for transforming a good story into a great one. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on several projects now and she always urges me to dig deeper into my plot and characters. The result has not only made my books stronger, but has improved my writing as well. I can’t recommend her enough!”
Daryl Anderson
“From start to finish, working with Deb Nemeth was a fantastic experience. Throughout the editing process, I felt that we were partners working toward the common goal of making my book the best it could be. Time after time, the amount of hard work and thought that she put into her notes blew me away. Deb’s insightful and constructive comments helped me to make my story stronger. Someone once said that writing was an art and editing a craft. If so, Deb Nemeth is at the top of her craft. I can’t wait to work with her again!”
Toni Anderson
“Deb Nemeth is a fantastic editor. She not only helps tease out the beauty and utility of each sentence, she’s also great at helping to build the novel paragraph by paragraph, all the while seeing the story as a whole, and judging characters’ actions and motivations with a reader’s eye.”
