Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with papertrue.com 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 papertrue.com 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 papertrue.com!
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

        How To Write Better Letters In Your Novel

        • calenderJan 27, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        Traditionally, when you think of letters in novels, you might go back to the epistolary novel. The epistolary novel is a form of novel which is written in the form of letters, for example, Samuel Richardson’s ‘Pamela’, or Stephen Chbosky’s ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. Epistolary novels are written with the general commendations that you undertake in letter-writing; dates, salutations, etc.

        This is why they might come off as extremely formal. But when it comes to writing a letter in a novel right now, the conventions might change. Language becomes less formal, there might be no salutations, references will be refined and taken from all over the place, change of tone, and many more things. So if you’re writing a novel that’s letters or you’re writing a letter in your novels, here are some tips to help you out:

        Tips To Write Better Letters:

         

        #1 Use a different font. If you’re writing a letter in your novel, it helps the reader to distinguish between the rest of the novel and a letter, if you use a different font. Or use italics, which is usually the preferred format. 

         

        #2 Make a smooth transition between your text and the letter. The sentence preceding your email should give the reader a little bit of room to understand that they’re going to be diving into the letter. 

         

        #3 Let your character’s personality shine through most authentically through the letter. They are written through the character’s perspective and have the opportunity to be personal and messy, because that’s the side effect of putting pen to paper (from the character’s POV). 

         

        #4 Make your characters have a conversation through letters. Most of them are one-sided, with the reader never getting to know the receiver’s response (Perks of Being…). Instead, it would be worth trying out an experiment in which the letters become the source of conversation in a novel that is, for example, written in third person perspective. 

         

        #5 Letters can be a delightful tool for unreliable narrators to give a new direction to the plot. If your narrators are interesting and engage the reader, they don’t have to be the bearers of truth. It becomes amazing to add suspense and mystery to your story that way.

         

        Additional Pointers:

         

        #1 Make it feel authentic and natural. If you’re writing a series of emails, you should strive to render the formatting of the subject line, address field, and signature blocks as realistically as possible. Or a fictional telegram should mirror the syntax of the real thing. Getting these details right will only add to the naturalism and authenticity of your story. 

         

        #2 Ensure that every voice is unique. The format of writing letters can get repetitive and boring, and if your characters slip into that rhythm of writing the same kind of letters because of your bias, it will become very boring. Make notes about how each character will write the letter and consciously incorporate them into the novel. 

         

        #3 Don’t explain yourself. If you’re writing a series of telegrams/emails into your novel, don’t feel the need to explain why you’re writing them, that might ruin their essence. If your story is compelling enough, the reader will piece together the story from them. 

         

        #4 Try writing letters to your friends and family to understand your comfort with the craft. See how you write letters; do you have a voice that might interfere with your character’s? You don’t have to send them the letters, just write a ton to understand how authentically you might incorporate them into your novel. 

         

        #5 Don’t write letters unless it’s absolutely necessary or just for the sake of writing one. Therefore, your letters should be conducive to your character’s development or to the plot. 

         

        So there you have it! Writing letters can be termed as a lost art now, but incorporating that in your novel might give it a new life and it could be your way of reviving it? Follow PaperTrue for more writing tips.
