I am a new author and Barbara Ivusic has been my editor for the six novels that I have written. I have found her advice invaluable and I am sure it has improved my writing. Barbara goes to great effort to analyse every aspect of the work and provides a detailed critique and practical suggestions. I have invariably adopted her ideas and I am sure my work has improved and matured as a result. I would not consider using anyone else and recommend her unreservedly.
As the author of ‘For Whom the River Runs’ I am eternally grateful to Barbara Ivusic’s editorial expertise in the publishing of my first novel. Her support and skill in massaging and fine tuning the manuscript into its finished format is testimony to her editorial knowledge, patience and understanding of the needs of authors. I recommend her highly to any writer seeking an editor of outstanding quality.
I can't help but smile when I think of how lucky I was to have my manuscript land on the desk of Barbara Ivusic. Barbara was an absolute gem. Her encouraging words and patience were only outdone by her expertise and skill. Barbara worked on my manuscript with an honesty and understanding that can only come from a very clever and talented editor, quickly turning a rough draft into a polished work ready for publishing. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone wanting to either transform a modest manuscript into a professionally polished novel or simply to check that their writing is word-perfect.
Barbara thank you for easing the path to my first published Autobiography ‘COLD DEEP WATERS’!! As my reliable editor and mentor, you were tasked with an historical and somewhat provocative story. You navigated me through some “rough waters” with your expertise and honesty. We worked collaboratively and you always responded in a timely manner. Without any doubt please consider Barbara as a professional, knowledgeable and intuitive advocate for your next successful project.
