two editors. two red pens. and a little red ink.
PRAISE FOR THE EDITORS
"When I first met Colleen, I found that she cared about my book, my dream to publish, and my voice. I was such a novice, but Colleen taught me much about writing and putting out the best product I could. Then she introduced me to Rogena—and my Super Team was born. Without either of these ladies in my corner, my best would simply be mediocre. Their encouragement and support are invaluable, their knowledge endless."
"Just when I thought Rogena couldn't top her dedication and expertise, she takes it to a whole new level with Two Red Pens Editing. Like Rogena, her partner-in-editing Colleen was able to gain my trust and inspire the confidence that, with their red pens at work, I will deliver the very best reading experience."
I came across TRP quite by accident, and I am so glad that I did! I had sampled about a dozen other editors before requesting a sample edit from TRP, and I am so glad I did. Their edits were light years ahead of their competition. My words read smoother, crisper and just flowed so much better. There is an enormous benefit of having not only one but TWO professional and seasoned editors review your work. They are a knockout team, and I can not recommend them enough. TRP does an amazing job at keeping YOUR voice and your vision intact while doing everything possible to make the prose sing. I am a customer for life. I adore Rogena and Colleen, and can not wait to work with them again!

"Colleen is highly professional, and her editing sets the bar high for any other editor to meet. Working with her was a joy, and it was her edit that helped wow a publishing house to sign the book I intended to self-publish."
"Her careful read and sentence restructuring suggestions go a long way toward making a much tighter narrative. I always tell “new authors” to never skip the editing process. The good news is that now there is another talented individual you can call on for help with that part of the publishing process!"
"Colleen's attention to detail is amazing. I think every author has that little moment of panic when they turn their "baby" over to someone else, but it was in great hands with her."
"Proficient in grammar, and brilliant in the knowledge that authenticates writing... She is that good! Her encyclopedic mind delves into finding meanings. She sorts all the components it takes to make books come alive with realism."
"Rogena Mitchell-Jones goes the distance for her clients. I have been blown away by her level of professionalism and careful editing skills. She is one editor who has left a lasting impression—a wonderful one—on me."
"I am a fervent believer in the importance of editing, but I am even more passionate about the importance of getting the right editor for the job. My thanks goes to Rogena Mitchell-Jones for her help and expertise. Her work was precise and to the point."
