Bryony’s most recent collaboration, Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide with Sarah Ratliff, is an anthology of essays from authors all over the globe, exploring how being more than one ethnicity affects identity.
Stewart Sanders, Author“I’m a fiction author, so I know anyone reading this would expect me to exaggerate. However I am not exaggerating one iota when I say I searched for a professional editor for six months, yet instantly knew Bryony was the right one once we’d made contact. She is impeccably professional and brings to her edits a blinding brightness of enthusiasm that will come across until the final page of your work. Don’t misunderstand, she won’t hesitate to provide effective feedback, but it is always diligently researched, concisely communicated and adds real value. I’ve worked with her on both my books and look forward to continuing to work with her throughout the series.”
Lana Penrose, Author“My work required a final spit polish from a pair of fresh eyes and expert hands, and I found the perfect candidate in Bryony Sutherland. Not only is Bryony a great editor, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s ultra efficient and an excellent communicator, and genuinely cares about your work, brimming with enthusiasm and suggestions. I absolutely loved working with this woman, and I’m sure you will, too. She comes highly recommended.”
Raina McLeod, Author“Gold stars across the board. I am SO happy with my Bryony-fied manuscript. She gave me notes, advice, encouragement, and all the reasons why what she said was legit. Her editing work, for content and grammar: excellent. She’s such a pleasure to work with. I was already excited to work with Bryony after reading the reviews left by my fellow writers, and she totally lived up to the hype. She took the time to understand my style and my voice, and kept the work authentic. A-1 editor and an A-1 person. Can’t wait to work with her again.”
