Welcome to Backspace Ink

Joanne Shwed at Backspace Ink




When I decided to write my second book, I knew how critical it would be to find the perfect editor. From the very beginning, I connected with Joanne and knew she was the editor for me. She knows her stuff and would quickly return material in a way that was well communicated and easy to understand. She immediately adapted to my writing style, accurately captured my ideas, and working with her was so easy. Not only did she help with editing, she designed the cover and the interior of my book. I love the finished product! I continue to use Joanne’s services for my editing projects. She’s the best!
