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.”

Julie Gibson-Williams

 “When I first was introduced to Wendy through a fellow author, I was a brand new, first time, self-publishing author who knew very little about the processes involved in planning, creating, writing, editing, typesetting, registering and publishing a book. Thankfully, Wendy had the knowledge, expertise and contacts which made the process run much more smoothly. Wendy always goes above and beyond to get a job completed well. As a self-published author I have found her skills, experience and contacts to be an invaluable asset and can highly recommend Wendy as an Editor, Advisor and trusted addition to any writer/author’s team."

'Life's Great Adventure' - Deri ap John Llewellyn-Davies

“We gave Wendy a really tight deadline to meet over the Christmas period, to which she was very obliging. I was particularly impressed with her work for two main reasons; Wendy is EXTREMELY thorough, precise and methodical, and she keeps up to date with technology through social media, which is rare to see and an extra bonus for author publicity. It’s always great to work with people who are truly passionate and professional about their work."

"Wendy is a delight to work with. She really gets into the heart and soul of the writer which enables her to get into their zone as she copy edits and hence produces excellent results that hit the spot. She has been a great source of gentle encouragement to me writing my first two books. I needed an empathetic copyeditor and that's what I got in Wendy. Highly recommended."   

Claire Uhlich

"Wendy came into my life when I was seriously doubting whether I could be an author or not. My heart was so stretched from self doubt. She showed faith in me, which turned everything around. Wendy's warm genuine energy blanketed any apprehension  I still carried to be  truly me.  I’ll forever carry Wendy's words of encouragement in my heart."

Sofie Sandell

'Digital Leadership - How Creativity in Business Can Propel Your Brand and Boost Results'

"I've worked with at least 10 other editors before and what I liked about Wendy was she was precise in her feedback and said clearly: you need to add more content here; this is not clear; someone may interpret this in a different way etc. To write a book is a big thing, and when working with Wendy she helped me to not stress too much about it. I can highly recommend her as a copy editor and wordsmith for your book projects!" 

Chris Johnson

'It's About You! Know Your Self'

"What a find Wendy turned out to be! Writing a book for the layperson defining some highly complex metaphysical concepts as well as notable works from philosophy, psychology, quantum physics, and more, isn't easy. But, Wendy took it all in her stride; she stuck resolutely to my directive to inform me when things were getting too bogged down or simply not understandable for the layperson.. and she let me have it! In a very polite way of course ...

She made great suggestions for putting things another way, chucking out jargon, keeping things as light as possible .... Passages that on first delivery to her could be described as 'wading through treacle' would be miraculously transformed to something a child would understand, let alone an adult with average intelligence. And it wasn't a case of her re-writing it, just putting my words into better order, thus making more sense and keeping better flow. Needless to say, the copyediting and proofreading was immaculate."

Pastor Costa Mukendi

"Wendy put herself in my shoes and went into my heart to discover my feelings and emotions and helped me put them in my story, making a real memoir of my life. She added the depth and scope to the book. "

Susie Cochrane

'The Wisdom in the Soul Within'

"Finding Wendy as my editor was serendipitous perfection in itself. But I was granted so much more than everyday editorial skills. Wendy has an understanding for the voice of the writer and their message, as well as clarity for my goals in creating a book that is warm, welcoming and clearly defined for the reader's ease  of understanding and continued success. Wendy's recommendations for my publishing path as well also proved to be fortuitous."

Trevor Gollagher

'12 Keys to a Fulfilled Life' & 'Heart Resonance'

"Wendy is the only editor I have worked with who actually cares about the quality and accuracy of her work. Her personalised service, combined with heart, is indeed a rare find in the dog-eat-dog world of copyediting. Her attention to detail, and sense of care, really sets the standard for all others."

Eric Allen

'Change Your World'

"Very Happy! Wendy and I have just finished the editing process on my ‘inspirational' booklet. She was able to make the tedious, joyful. Wendy has an incredible ability to understand the author and offer suggestions that enhance the work without ever changing the artist’s vision. Wish I knew her when I wrote my first book, but will definitely be working with her on my next one. Thank you Wendy."

Tracy DeGeer

"Wendy was not only capable, but her personal enthusiasm for my book and program got me over many hurdles to publication. Thank you Wendy."

Rebecca Lee

'Unlock Your Love Blocks'

“When it came time to prepare my first self-published work, I needed help from someone to not only copyedit my writing. I needed someone who could coach me and give me feedback on my content and how to structure my content. When I first spoke to Wendy, I could feel that she was a compassionate woman, who was passionate about her work. She was ‘open’ to the spiritual concepts that my work is about and I felt comfortable straight away with her. Her work was professional and she also had a lovely way of giving me feedback that was honest, yet still encouraging. She successfully edited my work in a way that I was still comfortable with my voice and, also, she was very delicate with the channelled information in my work."
