‘Cressida Downing – The Book Analyst – has line-edited two of my books so far and has great insight into what changes need to be made. The service she offers is quick, without being rushed, efficient and cost-effective, and I would gladly recommend her to any authors who need a critical eye cast over their work.’

Andrew Goodman – author of the forthcoming TIBERIUS FOUND


‘Friends can only go so far.  As a professional reader, Cressida Downing analyses the good and the bad in my writing.  The relationship between editor and writer becomes a dynamic process.  Her suggestions help my reflection and sense of purpose.’

Margo Gorman


‘Cressida Downing has assisted me for seven years assessing typescripts and proofs with a view to their publication.  Her reports are concise, insightful and highly intelligent.’
