Here’s what some of our clients have been saying about us!

The critique from Bear and Black Dog Editing helped me view my MS differently. After finding out how my characters were perceived, I found a new side to them. I kept that new perspective in mind as I continued writing and revising. It made my story stronger.


I was very pleased with the edits I sought out from Bear and Black Dog Editing. I received useful and honest feedback about my manuscript and writing style – feedback I wasn’t getting anywhere else. I will highly recommend them to any of my writer friends! Without Ashlynn’s help, I would still be stuck. If you need a pair of fresh eyes on your work, you’ve found the right people.
Cait offered some great insights into my work – not only highlighting errors and making suggestions for how things could be improved, but also identifying some bad habits that I’ve never noticed before and can now look out for in my writing. I won my critique in a competition on Twitter, but received a service that I’d be happy to pay for again in the future and would highly recommend.


Cait provided excellent edits with directive and supportive comments, as well as fantastic line editing. I was pleased with the final product and would definitely have her assist me in the future.


Cait’s critique of the first five pages of my MS was prompt and insightful. She even checked in with me later on to see how things were going, which was thoughtful and kind.


Thanks to Bear and Black Dog Editing I was able to get insightful AND helpful edits on my story. Not only were they straightforward, but they made suggestions I didn’t think to, which made my manuscript that much stronger.
