"The editor hired an editor this week. Well, actually,
I hired a proofreader and she did an excellent job of ferreting out all of my
misuses of the English language, spacing and punctuation problems and she
pointed out some of my less-than-professional writing habits. I learned a
lot from this proofreader/secretary/editor this week and I want to
sing her praises.
your book is about ready for publication, do yourself a favor—don't
proceed until Bonnie Myhrum has done her magic. She's thorough, she's
professional and I think her rates are reasonable. Proofreading by Bonnie is
definitely an investment worth making in your almost-perfect book."

"Bonnie Myhrum of Professional Secretary, LLC is very professional, efficient and accurate. Her editing qualities are very important for our business. As an Internet Company, we do Custom Designed Websites for businesses, organizations and professionals. If we produced a site that was full of misspellings and grammar errors, it would make us and our clients look bad.
We have been using Bonnie's
services for the past 5 years. We are so happy that we found Bonnie. Now we just email her a website to edit and she has it edited and back to us very quickly. It has made our lives much easier and our clients very happy."
professional secretary you are the rare
exception. I especially appreciated the way
in which you communicated with me before
making changes. It gave me the feeling that
you were really working on ‘my’
book. The proofreading in addition to
formatting was a real bonus, which was
unexpected. Your skills are unquestionable
and I plan to have you review and format
everything that I write in the future. I
would advise anyone who writes to utilize
your services to make their work look more
professional. Ebook writers would greatly
benefit from what you do. The side benefit
is the pleasure of working with someone with
such a pleasant personality.”

"If taking care of business is causing your distress, you need a secretary – it’s time to
call or email) P.S.!"
"Bonnie does fantastic
work. After the premier issue of "The
Artisan's Well" magazine was published in 2008, I asked Bonnie to look it
over with an editor's eye for me. She did this free of charge and when I
saw the results, I hired her on the spot. She even gave me advice on
layout and design, which helped to improve the quality of the publication.
Her approach toward editing is completely unbiased, she does not judge the work,
just edits it, unless you ask. Bonnie is the final authority on the
written word. Two thumbs up!!"

Editing a manuscript for
sentence structure, grammar, punctuation and spelling may seem
an unnecessary expense, but it is of utmost importance if you
want to be taken seriously as a writer. Call me for a quote.
Have your manuscript
proofread when it’s ready to go to the printer. You may think
it’s in perfect, ready-to-go condition, but chances are good
that I will find spacing errors, typos and incorrect

It’s unwise to proofread what you have typed,
because you will see what you expect to see. When you send a
less-than-perfect document to your customer, you aren’t
presenting your business in a professional manner. If you email
or fax your document to P.S., I will edit and/or
proofread for typographical, punctuation and grammatical errors
and for content if you desire. I proofread Websites in addition
to all other documents.
