Why Chrysalis Editorial?

First, we believe you will get the highest quality of service and our very best effort, regardless of your project’s needs.  But we’ll let our clients’ endorsements testify to that.

Second, with many companies you won’t have the chance to communicate directly with the person who reviews your manuscript.  Chrysalis Editorial gives you the opportunity to work one-on-one, and no matter what your project, it is given thorough, individual attention.  The comments you receive are specific to your piece alone, and you can always contact us with your questions and concerns.

The third reason you should choose Chrysalis? Experience. Herta has been an editor for over 20 years, and through Chrysalis she has been helping people achieve their writing goals since 2007.
