“Abbey is the best scopist I have ever worked with. She has all the skills you want as your scopist: She’s very detailed with punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, research. She’s verbatim with audio. Good communication. Always on schedule. She’s excellent.”


—Karen Aligo, Court Reporter

“Working with Abbey was a dream come true for me. I needed help, but I needed the right person. She helped me edit a book that meant a lot to me. I have a certain tone—and she just got it. She got me. She is so kind, thoughtful, and above all very talented in what she does. So talented—I’m working with her again! I brag about her all the time. I’ve got an editor! And her name is Abbey!”

“If you are serious about writing, you need an editor, someone who can provide a bird’s eye view of what you can’t see as an author. I was thrilled that Abbey was willing to go beyond editing and become a creative collaborator who helped breathe depth into my story. Writing is a team effort. I look forward to her help with my upcoming, third book.”

—Lauren Jones Jackson, CSR

“Abbey knows words, she really does! She most efficiently and very kindly helped me with writing what is the most important book in my life, so far, and I’m so grateful for her inestimable work. She’s priceless and very affordable as well. She definitely deserves all the praise she receives, and I recommend her services one thousand percent!”

Without Abbey Cárdenas my prose is but a mere shadow of what I wasn’t even aware was possible. Abbey’s skills and professionalism are top of the line.

—James Rose, author of Boo Hoff

Professional, prompt, thorough, detail-oriented. You can trust that Abbey will do a meticulous job. I’d use her services again in a heartbeat.

—Ralph Mroz, author of The Senior Years Master Plan

It was a pleasure working with Abbey. I do hope we can work together in the future.

—Tina Brown, E.Y.I.G Publishing

Abbey Cárdenas has great attention to detail and a vast knowledge of grammar and punctuation rules. I am a busy attorney and always rushing, so it’s great to have Ms. Cárdenas to make my work look professional and error-free. Since English is my second language, her help is invaluable. In fact, I should probably have her review this testimonial.

—Lizeth Perales, Esq.
