Bonnie helped draw out what was inside of me and made it a reality
Recommendation for Wordsmith.Ink’s Corral Your Concepts service.
I went with Bonnie for a deep dive and we blew out more work in two days than I had done in two years. I walked away with a full and complete understanding of the body of work that was inside me and a beautiful book outline that got me started creating my thought leadership at a whole new level.

A shout out to our amazing book editor!
Bonnie is a beacon of light to work with, someone who we referred to as our “book angel”. She is not only a terrific person but an attentive listener who worked with us to capture our voice in a clear, concise manner. She helped get the most out of us throughout the writing journey, all the while making the experience fun and pleasant.
She excels at looking at the macro, big picture goal of a project and also gets into the weeds at a micro level to make sure the wording is just right. In our case, she even came up with our book title! Bonnie is a unique, skilled, positive individual that we highly recommend as a valuable and integral member of your next book project.

Bonnie took my book to the next level
I’m so glad I discovered Bonnie! My book is long and complex, and asks readers to re-explore their views and opinions. Bonnie helped me better organize my ideas and recognize where I wasn’t as clear, precise, or concise enough to achieve my goal of connecting deeply with my audience.
My book now has a level of polish I couldn’t have achieved on my own. I give my full recommendation to Bonnie McDermid to anyone aspiring to greater effectiveness as an educator, influencer, and author.

Bonnie Took My Book from Mediocre to Marvelous
"I sent my book to Bonnie McDermid when it was in formatting, ready to be published. I wanted one more set of eyes on my book before I sent it out to the world. Bonnie read it and told me it wasn’t ready. I cringed and considered her advice.
Then I trusted Bonnie to take my book to another level of excellence. Together, we went through my book several times and tightened up the structure and developed the overall design of the book. Bonnie preserved my voice, enhanced what I had already written, and helped me let go of unnecessary words. She treated my book as if it was as important to her as it is to me. And authors know what a powerful statement that is. Thanks to Bonnie, my book is stronger and hopefully, a jewel in the hands of my readers."

Fulfilling Experience for First-Time Authors
"As first-time authors with little experience, Bonnie McDermid created a clear and easy path for us to follow and guided us through it effortlessly.
Because our book is a memoir, it was extremely important to us to have an editor who could connect to our story emotionally, yet be able to detach and view it from the reader’s perspective. It was an amazing, fulfilling experience and we came away from this journey with a wonderful friend in Bonnie, for which we are truly grateful and blessed."
