Dearest Wendy, You are the epitome of a woman living her purpose! My first and second workbook would not be possible without your editing and formatting prowess. Your book template was an invaluable resource and saved a lot of time when it came to ebook conversation and the interior layout. My deepest thanks also for your unwavering encouragement, support, guidance and belief in me and the work I am doing. Two down, only five to go! Continue to shine your magnificent, radiant light beloved. With love, hugs and eternal gratitude, Kylie

I have had the incredible privilege of working with Wendy as my editor for my memoir 'Unscathed Beauty'. What I found was not only a talented, attentive and compassionate editor, but also someone who has become a dear friend.
Wendy was extremely professional, and her compassion and empathy for my story helped me keep the most beautiful parts. She really helped me ‘dig deeper,’ into the rawness of my journey to a place that I wasn’t sure I could go. This has been the greatest gift to my readers, and for that I am extremely grateful.
I have not had one piece of negative feedback regarding my book, and I attribute that in part to the strong guidance and wisdom of my editing team. It wasn’t just the editing. Wendy was the friend I needed to walk with me on this compelling and in-depth journey. I would highly recommend Wendy and her services to any prospective author.
"Thank YOU, Wendy, for the precious time that you spend with us as we unfold the journey together. Without you and your loving and professional guidance I would not be an author and have the opportunity to express and share the wisdom to help others. I cannot recommend you enough to anyone thinking of publishing a book. You are a midwife to birthing our message of Love and healing into the world."

Books Wendy edited as subcontractor: 'Loss, Love & Lessons', 'Terminally Fabulous', 'Chinese Medicine Business Success', 'Grief, Grace & Gratitude'
I have known Wendy Stuart professionally for six years and have always admired her passionate approach to editing, and her obvious care for her clients. In 2016, when I needed to take on another book editor to help with my workload at Author Support Services, Wendy was the first person I thought of due to her reputation in the industry as a skilled and caring editor.
Wendy’s rare mix of professionalism and compassion makes her an editor that goes the extra mile, does the research, thinks outside the box, and most importantly, keeps ‘what’s best for the book and client’’ as her central motivator. All clients have been very satisfied with Wendy’s work, as have I. Wendy’s gentle, loving style was vital in helping one client share her daughter’s story and other clients share their journey with grief.

"When I met Wendy as a participant in my Family Constellation workshop three years ago, I immediately recognised her soul. Her soul is so keen to question life and to seek truth. Her ability to express herself in words and editing is extraordinary. I always wonder if she was born with a magic wand! I am so grateful for her support in editing my writing. She guided me to tell my story as if I was speaking directly to my reader. She provides professional suggestions yet leaves room for me to rethink what I am trying to express. Her response is prompt and efficient. I highly recommend Wendy as your go-to spiritual and professional editor. She is the magic."

Author, "Extraordinary You"
"Putting together a compilation book with 11 different personalities and voices to manage can be tough work. Even tougher for the copy editor to create cohesion and flow from 11 different writing styles and tones. Yet Wendy did exactly that. And her spiritual outlook on life made Wendy the perfect choice to work on Extraordinary You and help to make it the international hit it is.
“As a first time clueless author I was so very lucky to find Wendy. From our initial interview, Wendy was in harmony with me. She was personable, approachable and emotionally available, which was a huge plus for me given the content in my memoir that Wendy was to edit. Wendy handled the content of my book and me both wisely and openly, and she did not disrupt the flow of my voice in the book, which was important to me. Wendy expertly dragged buried emotions from me that had not previously been included in the book, but without which my memoir would not be what it is today. As a team we worked long and hard and I believe we have an amazing product thanks mainly to Wendy’s diligence. Thank you, Wendy, from the bottom of my heart; as I have previously told you, the therapy was worth it. If you are looking for an amazing Editor, Writer or Author Support person you’d be crazy to look any further—you’ve found her.”
