Your edits are so thorough, it’s amazing. I really appreciate the speed and the expertise you have put into this job at very short notice. You are a one-woman wonder, truly. I am very grateful for your knowledge, your speed, your accuracy and your kindness … and the formatting is perfect!

Thank you so much for your thorough work. You are amazing! I have enjoyed your calm professional manner in my storm. I can’t thank you enough.

Amber Kennedy

Master of Education (Philosophy) student, Queensland University of Technology

I thought I would let you know that my thesis is done and dusted and I have passed. One of the examiners commented that the thesis was very well edited. Thanks again for your services and I will be sure to recommend you.

Lecturer, Faculty of Education & Arts, Australian Catholic University

Charlotte is the best proofreader ever! She provides such individualised and flexible services for busy people like me! Every time when I read her feedback and comments, I learn so much about my weaknesses to keep in mind when I am writing. She always provides honest and positive feedback so I am not only getting back a piece of work with perfect grammar, but also learn so much grammar knowledge from her to keep improving my writing.

Cindy Meng Yang Kang

Master of Education (Research) student, Queensland University of Technology

I wanted to write to sincerely thank you for your recent work towards copyediting my PhD thesis for submission. I was astonished at the level of detail you provided towards not only the visual presentation and style of the thesis, but more importantly all the technical aspects associated with my writing. Your excellent work and the clarity you provided for every suggested amendment enabled me to easily address these and submit my thesis a week ago.
Michael Easey

Lecturer & PhD candidate, Faculty of Education & Arts, Australian Catholic University

Charlotte’s commitment to enhancing the quality and presentation of my work is unsurpassable to previous editors I have worked with. It’s one thing to know what you are doing, but Charlotte goes above and beyond in explaining how to fix and avoid the same problems from reoccurring when writing future papers. Charlotte exceeded my expectations in all aspects and provided feedback in a timely manner for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend using Charlotte’s editorial skills to anybody, especially to people working within academia.

A virtual lack of typos and grammatical errors supersedes the typical standard of manuscripts submitted to refereed journals and book publishers.

Charlotte was a delight to work with. She was very respectful of my words and professional in her approach. I really appreciated her responsiveness and helpful suggestions. Charlotte’s diligence, patience and thoughtful feedback have added great value to my book, Accidental Writer.

Charlotte’s editing prowess was beyond my wildest expectations and was my ultimate saving grace. Not only did she edit grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence construction, but she fact-checked things for historical accuracy and suggested reorganisation of chapters to ensure flow and consistency. I would not have had the success with my book as I have without her expert editing skills.

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home!

Charlotte Cottier could be described as an editing avenger. As a first-time self-publisher and independent author, I would have been lost without her precision in helping me reorganise my thoughts on paper. Charlotte is undoubtedly a highly skilled surgeon of her craft.

Decoding the Lost World of the Maya

Lindsay McAuley

Visual artist and independent author

Charlotte is an excellent editor who has worked on a number of books for logonliteracy. She is efficient and extremely thorough. As well as attending to the technical aspects of writing, Charlotte has provided invaluable advice and guidance about the content of the books. I found this to be of particular help for my most recent book, Hooking Students into Learning … in all curriculum areas, because Charlotte’s suggestions about the way in which the book could be organised have contributed to a much better book. I strongly recommend Charlotte for the high quality of editing that she provides.

Patricia Hipwell


I cannot thank you enough for your thorough feedback and advice. Your notes were invaluable to me in shaping the story into its best self. With your insights, I felt like a sculptor removing excess to reveal the statue inside the stone, as the saying goes.

Once More, Novel 1 in the Sayen Falls series

Rebecca J. Berry

Independent author

Charlotte is an excellent and meticulous editor of all types of documents, having supported me by editing many academic papers and educational books. I am constantly surprised by the corrections she finds in what I thought were error-free drafts. She also makes very helpful suggestions for improving the drafts – ranging from formatting enhancements to seeking permissions for citing the work of others. When I hand her a draft document for editing, Charlotte gives me an estimated completion date and has never let me down by missing a deadline. Charlotte’s involvement behind the scenes always makes my work look better!
