"Amber Lea Easton understands the characters, what motivates them, and their directions. She is thorough, concise, and professional. She is fearless when it comes to making a story the best it can be, and throughly understands my creed of the art and story are much more important than the author's ego. I highly recommend Amber Lea Easton and Mountain Moxie Publishing for any of your written word assignments."

“I worked with Amber on my first novella. Although I have been a professional writer for years, I had never written professional fiction before, and Amber helped immensely in adapting some of my writing quirks and issues into a polished piece. She was quick, friendly and always accessible. What I enjoyed most about the editing process, however, was her enthusiasm for my work. I had interviewed and received sample edits from many other editors for this piece, but I selected Amber because not only were her edits insightful but also I could tell she really “got” my work. It was some of the best money I have ever spent to hire her!”
Elizabeth JoyeElizabeth Joye, author of Invisible Ink
"I worked with Amber Lea Easton (Mountain Moxie) on two novels and several short stories. Her straight-to-the-point style truly pushed me as an author to produce the best work I've ever done. She's encouraging, knowledgeable, accessible, and tough when she needs to be. At times it felt like a roller-coaster ride, but the end result was worth the journey! Not only will I hire her as an editor again, I highly recommend her to anyone who is willing to put in the work and who wants their manuscript to be the best it can be--in my case, even better than I imagined."
"Amazing editor! I worked with Amber on two of my werewolf stories and a short story. Three rounds ensured a quality, deep edit. Her open-mindedness to work with various genres is refreshing. Never once did she try to tone my style down or alter my vision--as some editors try to do. Quite the opposite, actually. She found plot holes and repetitions I'd overlooked, was easy to communicate with, and very professional during all stages of the editing process. She's been a joy to work with and I'm positive I'll work with her again in the future."
--Sabrina Devonshire, author Extasy Books and Corozon Publishing (http://www.sabrinadevonshireromances.com)
“I’ve worked with Amber on two of my titles: Crimson Snow and Fire and Ice. ‘Seeing the forest for the trees’ – this was the significant takeaway I gained from partnering with her talents. I’ve worked with many editors and found that I have no issue in adapting to all of the different styles and approaches. After all, it’s all for the greater good of the end product. With Amber, her style is direct, concise, enlightening, passionate and inventive. She articulated where the story got lost in the details and provided intuitive processes to enhance flow and missing components. Her approach not only made the end products shine, she provided enrichment and instilled processes in my writing that extend past the scope of the projects. If professionalism, quality and attention are what you seek for your project, I highly recommend Amber Lea Easton. In fact, I am looking forward to many more pairings with Amber in 2015 and beyond.”

"I worked with Amber for the first time this summer, on the 2013 Four Seduced Muses Winter Anthology, Tis The Season For Seduction. I highly recommend Amber as an editor. She made it fun and educational.It was a delight to work with such a talented and positive person.
Although I have been a published author for two years, Amber opened my eyes to some common grammar abuses I was ignorant to. Once I cleaned that up the story, it flowed . I openly admit to flunking English and never really caring, until now. Amber clicked on the light bulb in my head.
I have been addicted to writing for two years, but now I am now even more excited about the writing process, as in how to be a better writer. Seriously, I'm eager to finally face all the other no-no's I've been committing!
It couldn't have been easy for her to comb through my manuscript, but she never once balked or made me feel embarrassed. I truly thank her for that.

"Amber is a miracle worker! She took my convoluted words that stretched back a decade and worked them into easy, readable, website adaptable content. I don't know how she managed to bring out the best in what I was trying to say, but she did. I highly recommend her as an editor...and as a writer. Her creative insights truly captured the essence of my message as an artist."

What Reviewers Say About Easton's Writing
Via Christoph Fischer Books regarding RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT: "Easton clearly cares about what she writes and it pays dividends, her book is surprisingly impressive and certainly recommended."
Amazon Reader Review for ANONYMITY, the Amazon Kindle Paid Best Seller and Goodreads' Book of the Month for February 2013: "Great love story! I could feel the characters' "electric chemistry" jump right out of the pages...couldn't put the book down! Definitely rates up there as one of the best romance books I've ever read! A must read for anyone who loves romance."
Regarding Free Fall, the internationally best selling memoir that's been named #4 on "Ten Most Inspiring Stories Everyone Must Read" list: 5 stars via Pastor Jennifer Swier: "Free Fall is a helpful and encouraging look into one family's journey with the pain and healing of losing someone deeply loved through suicide. Her sharing is warm, loving, encouraging, and thoughtful. I found I couldn't put it down once I began. Amber's writing is compelling and will connect with all who share the journey with a family member or friend who is healing following the tragic death of the person they love: that we may begin to imagine what they are going through only because we hear the story they share."
Adaptation is the key to Easton's success. Whether it is writing, editing, speaking or teaching, being fluid is essential to meeting the need of current circumstance.
