Testimonials

I have worked with boho edits on a number of books and I cannot say enough good things about their work. The developmental editing side has saved my bacon once or twice and helped my book to the next level of success. The copy editing is precise and detailed. I have books set in Australia and New Zealand and boho are wonderful for dealing with the language and colloquial variations that entails. I cannot recommend boho highly enough. You are in safe hands.

Jay Hogan

I’ve used Boho Edits for my editing services since 2015, and I highly recommend Posy. Not only is her work thorough and all-inclusive, but she’s always on time, communicates openly about her scheduling, and her comments and suggestions are well-researched and encouraging. Posy works with the author to make a manuscript the best it can be, and I’m proud to have her name in my books.

Professional, courteous, and thorough, Boho Edits is a pleasure to work with. I know my story is in safe hands.
