Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        Starting Your Book With a Bang: Ways to Catch Readers’ Attention

        • calenderNov 03, 2020
        • calender 5 min read

        One may think that a short attention span is novel to the social media age. But I’d like to propose that if someone’s attention is caught, time is an irrelevant factor. With that being said, let’s not waste too much time jump straight into the crux of the matter: How does a writer catch a reader’s attention? 

        The Art of Writing a Hook 

        What you’re looking to do here, when you begin a story, is to spark intrigue. A reader should read your text and be compelled to unravel what happens next. Once you catch the reader’s attention, you have all the time in the world for exposition and establishing other elements of a story. 

        There are many ways to get your reader hooked. 

        #1: Open with something unexpected. 

        Absurdity is a great way to catch someone’s attention. Begin your story with something that makes people pause and go, ‘Hang on, wait, what?’. Take a look at this sentence, which the opening sentence of Franz Kafka’s seminal text The Metamorphosis: 

        As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. 

        On reading this, your reader instantly realizes that they are moving into the uncharted territory of the unexpected, and are keen to deconstruct what this sentence implies. Is it literal or some kind of metaphor? Where exactly is Kafka leading with this? These are all questions you may have, on reading this sentence. 

        #2: Start with an action. 

        Action is a great way to introduce a dramatic effect. Narration is relatively pedestrian in this regard because an unexplained action creates suspense. A reader often wants to know why something is happening, and it’s far more satisfying to unravel it over a course of a few paragraphs or pages that it is to be directly told about it. 

        As examples, you may open with a fight, or the discovery of a dead body, or a group of people being stranded in a jungle. You’re looking for a pivotal moment in a larger situation. This device of starting a story with an action that has no explanation is called ‘in medias res’, which literally means ‘in the midst of things’. This evokes fascination in a reader, making them wonder how things got here in the first place. 

        #3: Draw them in with sensory imagery. 

        Sensory details are a great way to get a reader involved/immersed in a story. 

        It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him. The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats.

        The above passage was from George Orwell’s 1984. By describing the sensations of Orwell’s fictional world, a reader is drawn in to the universe because they visualize or simulate the experience of what’s being written. 

        #4: Introduce a memorable character or narrator. 

        An intriguing figure instantly catches a reader’s attention. Focus on how you can make them appear interesting and mysterious as soon as your reader encounters them. For this, you can focus on their quirks, eccentricities, anything that could spark a conversation around it. 

        If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

        That was the opening paragraph of JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, a novel that is often considered a fine example of teenage angst and alienation. Two things are happening here: one is that Holden Caulfield is established as a relatable character, and two, he is directly beckoning us to his world as we begin to see a glimpse of his worldview.
