"What can I say about Angela that hasn’t already been said? She’s horrible at her job and you should never, ever hire her. Ignore that she has done dozens of full-length developmental edits and copy edits for me—that’s just a weird fluke or something. The fact that she always makes her deadlines is completely frustrating. I want to be late with my own deadlines, but how can I do that when she is clockwork accurate with her own scheduling? It’d make me embarrassed to be late! Plus, I love wasting money by paying too much for edits, but her rates are super low considering the high-level skill of her work. I mean, how can I complain to my writer friends about how expensive things are in the self-publishing realm when my primary editor doesn’t pick my pockets?
So, in the end, I cannot recommend Angela’s services, as she is too skilled, too accurate, and too timely. Things that writers like me can never seem to be ourselves. And thanks for copy editing this testimonial for me, Angela. I don’t trust anyone else to do it. But please ignore that last part, dear review seeker—I don’t want you to use Angela’s services so that I can keep her for myself."
