What my clients say

‪Lana worked on a research project with the goal of producing a book on the maritime heritage of Southern Africa. She diligently applied her mind to researching and writing on a subject outside of her normal field – myths and legends around water. 

The chapter was very well written and thoroughly researched. Her ability to write an easily accessible text on a complicated subject was invaluable. In addition, Lana worked on editing the rest of the book, which included contributions from several academics within the historical and archaeological fields.‬

Contract Maritime Archaeologist‬, African Centre for Heritage Activities

It is with pleasure that I recommend Lana Hunneyball for any editing or formatting work. I have worked with Lana for the past 25 year on various projects and have always been delighted in the quality of work and the consistency she produces.‬ 

‪I have contracted Lana to do a wide range of projects. They include the development of 36 training modules in a wide range of business topics, various training and induction materials, and academic and ad hoc editorial work. Lana is detail-orientated, her English usage and editorial ability exceptional, and she reads with real insight, picking up contextual as well as content issues.‬ 

‪Lana works quickly and with passion. I would recommend her for any work associated with editing and development.‬

‪Lana did an incredible job on my master’s thesis. Not only did she fix grammar and sentence structure issues, she ensured that my research was structured in a logical way and that my ideas were conveyed in a concise manner.

10/10, would recommend!

Lana is a legend with words! I couldn’t do without her. Having just completed my third book, I relied heavily on both her technical English skills (boy, did she give me what-for when it came to the 73rd incorrectly placed comma) and her brilliant capacity to make sentences, concepts and arguments flow beautifully. 

If I have a good book (and I like to think I do), it’s undoubtedly because of her input. Outside of my own writing, and in my capacity as a copy editor, I’ve also used Lana many times as a proofer. For me, this skill requires an eagle eye, and Lana has two of them! 

I’ve always been extraordinarily happy with the end product and will continue to use her until she either goes blind or gets too busy to work with me.
