  • Randy Peyser, Author One Stop

    When it comes to editing, Joanne is a heavyweight. She is a superb editor. I trust Joanne with my clients’ manuscripts, knowing that when she works on a project for me, it is going to be done right and come in on time. She has high integrity and consummate skills. I trust her also with my clients who wish to self-publish. She is honest and does great work. Joanne receives my highest recommendation.


  • Terry A. Clark, Project Management for Planners

    It was a true pleasure to work with Joanne Shwed in editing my book. Joanne was the perfect professional in her role in working with me—a writer going through the editing and publishing experience for the first time. She was responsive, personable and extremely helpful in making my manuscript worthy of publishing. I attribute the successful sales of my book to her input and guidance. Joanne Shwed provided professional, timely and very helpful editing of my book published by the American Planning Association. It was a pleasure working with her and I recommend her without reservation.


  • Michelle Waters, Dancing with the Diagnosis—Steps for Taking the Lead When Facing Cancer

    I was so fortunate to be paired with Joanne Shwed! Her command of the English language, attention to detail and commitment to perfection were just what my book needed before it went to print. I also appreciated her patience and kindness—the two things that every writer’s ego desires when plowing through the editing phase.


  • Kimberly A. Steward, The Doghouse Angel

    My experience with Backspace Ink was very positive. I found Joanne Shwed to be reasonable, yet someone who provided a sound sense of direction, without altering content in a way that diminished authorship. Conversations and recommendations were light, and dialog always weighed with a sense of reason. I was delighted that, when all was said and done, The Doghouse Angel was very much what I had written, but grammatically superior and flowed concisely.


  • William Smith, Easy Home Basics

    It’s amazing! Backspace Ink transformed my rough manuscript into a professional document ready for print in record time. I especially loved the personalized service and the attention to detail throughout the entire process. Joanne Shwed turned my lifetime dream into reality and I will always be forever grateful. This may have been my baby, but you delivered it!


  • Kevin Boyle, Braving the Waves: Rockaway Rises ... and Rises Again

    Initially, I had real worries that an editor—any editor—would be intrusive and worse, not “get me” or my style. Joanne Shwed allayed my fears and was just plain terrific. I’d rely on her talents again in a second.


  • Thaïs Mazur, Warrior Mothers: Stories to Awaken the Flames of the Heart

    Joanne Shwed is a thorough and competent editor. She not only knows the basics but also supports the emotional message behind the words. I was very pleased with her treatment of my manuscript and herald her as an editor for anyone who wants the job done right.


  • Anthony Downs, Planning Reform in the New Century

    Joanne Shwed is one of the most thorough proofreaders and editors I have encountered in my long career as an author. She went through my article at least three times, always finding something additional to change, no matter how completely I took her advice about her previous screenings. If you want to have your work very completely analyzed, at least for errors as well as inconsistencies, I recommend her highly.
