I am so thankful for Cayce and the awesome editing that she provided me. As a first time author, I was really nervous about my manuscript and had numerous questions involving editing and publishing in general. She was very patient with me and explained everything in ways that a newbie such as myself could understand. Because my children’s picture book is written in rhyme, I wanted someone who was knowledgeable about this specialized type of writing. Her editing was extremely thorough, and she took her time and made sure that each of my stanzas were perfect. The program that she uses to edit the manuscript is very user friendly. I love that she offered suggestions for different word choices, as well as various tips to improve my writing. I also really appreciate the fact that she is always available if a question should arise. Whenever I send her a message, she willingly, and promptly, answers all of my questions. I will definitely be using her services for other aspects of my book and highly recommend her.

Cayce Berryman is excellent! The editing she did on my manuscript was phenomenal. She is very thorough and went above and beyond to make sure my novel would be the best it could be. She was very interactive throughout the process. I didn’t feel like she just went through my manuscript and tore it up with a red pen. Instead, I felt like she helped me grow as a writer by pointing out what wasn’t working as well as the good points of my work. Cayce worked in a very timely manner, even finishing the editing earlier than expected. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional, thorough, and efficient editing.

I stumbled upon Cayce randomly and extremely ungraciously with a manuscript that I had completed the day before that I didn’t go back and look over…not once. That being so, I’m fairly certain there was A TON of work to be done on her part and she did it in such a timely manner and the changes she suggested helped make my book the best that it could be. I will not use any other editor for my upcoming projects! She’s thorough, creative, and patient when need be. I highly recommend her services!

I loved this interactive workshop, I received tons of great feedback and my writing is better for this experience.

Cayce was a great leader and even though people had personal obligations/had to drop out for personal reasons, she was able to move things around in a timely manner so that there weren’t any hiccups in the process. Would I do it again? Sure! She made it enjoyable, and I felt like my work was in good hands at the end.

A month long writing workshop. What is not to love. I’ve participated in workshops while in college and none have been like this. With Caycee’s direction based schedule, each participant had an idea of where to focus on and since the workshop was a month long, there was plenty of time for many critiques to help improve your writing. I’m looking forward to the next one!

I found the workshop quite stimulating, I think it is because of my competitive nature that makes me write more when I’m among other talented individuals. Point being I owe a lot of story and lore development to Cayce and would recommend her services.

I attended a workshop that Cayce ran through a Facebook writing group, and the entire experience was amazing!
Full disclosure: I was a touch skeptical at first about whether the concept of the workshop would work at all. I mean, the workshop consisted of about 16 writers working together online over about a month critiquing one another’s work and then posting revisions based on those critiques. The other writers and I never met face to face, so I didn’t know whether virtual strangers (pun sort of intended!) would be able to help me make my piece the best it could possibly be.
Cayce’s attention to detail and her simple yet effective organization of the group guaranteed that everyone got the most out of the critiques as well as the writing process itself. We finished our pieces on time and were respectful and open to one another’s suggestions, advice and ideas. I didn’t agree with everyone all the time, but I didn’t mind considering their thoughts because the design of the workshop made it easy to do so. Cayce is the main driver behind that.
I’m an editor myself, so I know exactly how challenging this must have been for Cayce. I can say without a doubt that when I have a piece that needs hefty editing, Cayce will be at the top of my list of editors to consider. I strongly recommend anyone else looking for an editor to put Cayce in the same spot!

I’m a first time writer. Having never written anything before or even read much, it was needless to say I needed work. Being in my 40s, everything I’ve learned about writing, grammar and punctuation was lost some 25 years ago. That’s where Cayce came in. Not only did her editing re-teach me about some the basics of writing, most importantly, she got me out of my own head and I started outwardly seeing my work as others would want to see it.
As for her completion time, it was quick, well within the window of what she estimated. I would definitely recommend her services to any writer.

I really don’t know where to begin. This was actually my very first manuscript. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started writing my memoir and I was looking for an editor to guide me from the beginning to the end, and Cayce did just that! She guided me step by step. She told me what my readers would be looking for. Because I was a victim of a crime, she told me when I needed to add more feelings and ask more questions of “why.” She also wasn’t afraid to tell me when something just wasn’t right or needed to be omitted, or changed. I kept an open mind and was willing to listen. I learned so much from her. If you’re looking for someone who will take time out and really give your manuscript the full undivided attention it deserves, I recommend Cayce Berryman Services. I was very pleased with the results and will use her again in the future.

Cayce is a wonderful editor with the patience of a saint! Her guidance has been spot on and is honest. She will help you attain the level of excellence that you are willing to work to achieve. Currently she is working right alongside of me and is in this project for the long haul. What you get out of her editing advice coincides directly to what you are willing to put into your work. See it for the valuable information that it is and you’ll be successful!

Cayce completed content editing on my urban fantasy story very quickly, she was always friendly, engaging and informative. Her editing work was performed to a high quality with an eye for detail. I recommend Cayce, she will help you cut and polish your literary diamonds.

The work Cayce provided on my fantasy manuscript couldn’t have been more helpful. Not only did she correct the typos, grammar, and punctuation, but she also called to light some commonly made mistakes throughout the piece which I had never noticed before. Her comments were so much fun to read, whether she called attention to sections I already guessed needed work or praised some line or scene she thought was particularly well-done (which happened to be in all my favorite sections, too).
Cayce works incredibly fast and efficiently, all the while reaching out to share her enthusiasm, ask questions, or get excited with me about what’s coming up next for my characters. She has a wonderful grasp of the English language and uses it to help authors perfect their work to the last tiny detail. I never once felt anxious by the possibility of Cayce rejecting and/or grossly changing any piece of my manuscript – she stayed completely true to the original intent of every scene I wrote.
Even after Cayce finished editing my work, once I rewrote a few sections and asked for her feedback, she was more than willing to read my revisions and immediately share her opinion. Any author looking for in-depth, succinct, and comprehensive editing and critical assessments of their work are sure to find everything they need with Cayce Berryman.

Cayce is great! Whether you are a budding new author or a seasoned veteran she is sure to be able to offer services to suit your needs. Cayce was able to help me fix plot holes, work on my story pacing and polish all my grammar edits. Without Cayce, my novel would have been a disaster. What I appreciated most about working with her was that she was available to me at any time. She was always willing to sit down for a quick chat and email questions were always answered in a timely manner. I will definitely be using Cayce’s services for all my future projects.

This is the first time someone truly offered feedback that can help advance my work. We used web chat and Cayce was fully engaged. If I looked like I had a question, she stopped and prompted me. I received feedback on my work and helpful industry hints. Overall, the turnaround time was very fast, so I did not have to pace the floor and wait. I will use this service again.

Any idea, no matter how good, presented poorly is a bad idea. I have been writing out bad ideas for a while now. If you’re like me, you aren’t aware that what you have isn’t the best you can do. I was only made aware of this after I sent my work to Ms. Berryman.
Since I knew I didn’t know what to look for, I went ahead with the Substantive Editing. I knew it might be hard but I was willing to see what she had.
Upon receiving the edits/notes back, I was thoroughly amazed. Everything she pointed out made perfect sense to me. From simple grammatical issues to POV changes mid paragraph, her eyes caught it all. Remember, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. So when I found out what I didn’t know, I was overjoyed.
I know now, that with her editing, I am able to produce the best quality presentation for my work. I have no fears of it being ill-received. Thank you again, Ms Berryman.
