The brief: To turn the early draft of the non-fiction book 'Help Your Child Shine: etiquette and character education for kids aged five to seventeen' into a polished manuscript fit for publication. The book, written by a non-native English speaker, needed rewriting, restructuring and lengthening with the addition of original case studies, while staying true to the spirit of the original.
Working with: Juliana Mamoni, business founder
“Vittoria is a natural writer and an outstanding editor. As a first-time author, I was quite anxious about handing over my manuscript (an in-depth guide to modern etiquette for children and teens) but I was quickly reassured by Vittoria’s professional services. She edited the language of my book into a great shape and gave it an excellent structure, creating consistency in both style and format. Her edits suited my vision and personality, and her comments were invaluable in helping the manuscript achieve my publishing goals. Vittoria understood my business aims and didn’t try to change my mind without a good reason or before asking critical questions. She did not bring any ego to the job and she always followed through with her promises. If she is available, I will always use Vittoria for future writing projects."
