I knew Ariel had the right pair of editor glasses—that’s why I sought her out like a pilgrim. So many of the things she said made me go, PING!
—Susie Bright, author of Full Exposure and other books
I was beyond satisfied with the work Ariel Gore did as editor for my novel and only hope she will have time to work with me on future books, as I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. She was encouraging and supportive,which I really needed as it had been many years since my last book came out, and she has a great sense of humor and personal warmth. She gave me excellent, sensitive and intelligent feedback on larger issues and problems as well as detailed, specific page by page and sentence by sentence feedback and suggestions on almost every page of my long novel, all of which I was able to use. She worked fast and always responded to my emails right away. She was happy to go beyond the limits of our contract—if I had to chose one word to describe her it would be generous.
—Andrea Freud Loewenstein, author of This Place, The Worry Girl, and Loathsome Jews and Engulfing Women
