Dear whom it may concern
I used the proofreading services of Ilaine Lennard for my novel and found her to be most efficient and fast. Her method of proofreading is thorough and easy to work with.
Ilaine's advice and suggestions have been invaluable for my book and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

In reference to Ilaine Lennard
I have known Ilaine for more than 20 years and have often worked with her on publishing projects.
For 14 years she edited single-handed an important international newsletter for a charitable/spiritual organisation. In this capacity she not only edited the magazine, gathering news worldwide, but also often wrote for it herself and did all the administration, subscriptions and distribution.
I currently employ her as a proof reader on projects of mine including newsletters and books. She is both fast and accurate, punctilious in her attention to detail. As such I could not wish for a better proof reader.
On a broader front, she is a very good person to go to for advice about the wider ranging issues involved in editing. Does the sentence work? This paragraph? This chapter? This book? She always has useful and interesting things to say about these issues.
She's punctual, reliable, and a pleasant friendly personality. She has the appropriate computer skills for someone doing this sort of work. She is well-spoken. I heartily recommend her.
Very best wishes,
