Writers and publishers who have worked with Paulette have this to say:
"Paulette Livers has worked with me on both of my novels, and it was like having a fan and an editor and a coach rolled into one. She never just told me what worked and what didn’t; she asked smart, penetrating questions that helped me see it for myself. She knows how to do a book the same way a DJ knows how to do Saturday night." – Michael Poore, Author of the novels Reincarnation Blues (Del Rey) and Up Jumps the Devil (Ecco).
"Paulette Livers has been instrumental in helping me hone and shape several of my published stories, including my recent novella, Day of All Saints, and current novel manuscript. Every piece of writing I've shared with her has benefited from her careful, close reading and generous insights. I always come away from reading Paulette's comments with clearer eyes for seeing my own work and a better understanding of where I want to take it." —Patricia Grace King, Outsider Art
"Paulette Livers is all one could desire in an editor. She works on every level at once, from the technical to the emotional to the political; Livers pares away the useless fluff and reveals the meaningful core of one's writing. I've rarely met anyone with a more careful eye or a more rigorous pen. Highly recommended!" —Riva Lehrer, Golem Girl
"It’s such a relief to have reliable feedback. I wish I had done this long ago. It’s giving me more confidence in my project." —Donna DiGiuseppe Matcovich, author of Lady in Ermine: A Story of the Woman Who Painted the Renaissance
"Thank you so much for editing my essay. After reading your comments and editorial letter, I suddenly see what's missing—and where to go with the story." Jane Madembo, author of The History of Racism I Didn't Want to Share (New York Times)
