“I contacted Satalyte Publishing to assist me with formatting my book for publishing, and Stephen, chief editor, offered to edit my novel as well. Stephen’s feedback was specific, extensive and thorough and his expertise in editing was evident in the changes he suggested.

I judge an editor by how much I learn from them and Stephen taught me much. The main area that stood out for me was the flow of sentences. Stephen is excellent in restructuring sentences to create maximum impact. He also has a keen eye for repetitive phrases and words.

As a writer, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the changes an editor makes to your work. Stephen’s comments remained patient throughout the entire manuscript, and he added positive feedback on areas he particularly liked.

He returned the manuscript to me well before the deadline, reformatted my work after I had reviewed the changes and most importantly, he was always available (and patient) when I had follow up questions.

I can’t recommend him enough!!!” ~ A. Finlay, author of Shadows of Light and Binding Darkness 

“My experience with Satalyte Publishing has been a blessing really. My old Publisher never asked my opinion on the small things like what color I wanted the pages of my book to be, but Satalyte did and even went so far as to detail all the different color options there were.
Satalyte has been prompt and to the point. I didn’t find myself having to constantly remind them that I had found a problem in the formatting or anything, even the images I used for my scene breakers were fixed by them with no problem. I’m told I can be quite frustrating to work with, but I never felt myself lose patience with Satalyte. Any help I needed to get my book ready was taken care of as though my book were the main priority.
There had apparently been some sort of issue with my cover that my old publisher never caught, but Satalyte caught it and as I hold my proof copy in my hands, I see how much better it looks compared to the proof for the old publisher. I truly am impressed with Satalyte and without a doubt call it my home and will recommend them to anyone who needs a fast, reliable, courteous, and above all professional publishing house.”

“What a process huh! I had no idea in the beginning what it would be like. I am so glad I had this chance to revise it, especially after you added your edit. Some things you wrote made me see I did not explain a point the way I intended it to be read. That was lucky! Thanks, Steve, for putting so much into this. I am honoured to be a Satalytian (saw that on facebook today. I like that!). CAN’T wait to see the cover ideas you guys have!!! I am loving this all so bloody much.”

“We had an enormous catalogue of work that needed to be rewritten accurately but with flair and a keen eye on keyword content. The work was extremely challenging and we required an experienced writer to nail the job and take ownership of the outcome. Stephen Ormsby did such brilliant work we cancelled other writers and now use him exclusively. Stephen is accurate meets the deadlines and the whole process is fast and efficient. We thoroughly recommend Stephen and will be booking him over the next 12 months as the catalogues are finished.” – Duncan McAdams
