JJ Toner has been proofing all of my WWII books. He is a terrific proofreader with meticulous attention to detail, and he has a very good understanding of history and anachronisms.

I 100% recommend JJ Toner as a developmental or structural editor. JJ has provided me with valuable editing reports on two of my novels, which have been instrumental in fixing a wide variety of issues. JJ is among the best in this area.

JJ Toner did extensive work on my latest book, Lethal Cargo, which will be published soon. I found him easy to work with, and full of helpful ideas on the structure and sequencing of my plot.
Author of The Torch Betrayal
I’ve used editors to help with the maddening process of plotting with some success. But, the first time I reached out to a novelist that writes in my genre, namely JJ Toner, the results went well beyond my expectations. JJ was patient and was able to quickly point out my story’s weak points and, most importantly, provide some valuable suggestions as to how to mitigate those weak points. I’m so glad I reached out. Thanks, JJ
Emerging indie author
One thing that impressed me, JJ does more than just edit copy or substance, of which he does well. I felt that his editing process mentored as well; that it has changed my understanding of story development and effective style. He also caught enough copy mistakes and stilted writing to be humbling. My book is not the easiest to edit. It’s a historical fiction in ww2 Philippines, where places can have difficult names. JJ did a good job of catching name transpositions and inconsistencies. I would be happy to use his services again.
Author of The Secret of the Hotel du lac and other books
JJ Toner has proofed and edited my latest WWII books. His attention to detail and knowledge of the era have helped shape my manuscripts into novels I can be proud of. He is easy to work with and honest in his appraisal. I will definitely use him again.
Author of Fourth World Man
Many thanks JJ. This has been a fantastic exercise – a learning curve that is almost a learning asymptote – and I am and shall be forever indebted to you for your guidance and advice. It has been a real pleasure working with you. Of all the investments in preparation I am likely to make, and in self-improvement, I can think of no other service that has given me so much and has been not only such good value in every sense but actually rather enjoyable, too.
