Thrillers, True Crime, and Crime Fiction

“Melanie was absolutely great to work with. Super knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to speak to. She was very prompt with her comments and suggestions and clear in all her communications. I needed a great deal of hand-holding, and Melanie was there for me. It is extremely rare that I give anyone a written recommendation, but I unequivocally do that for Melanie Saxton. I am so glad I found her to help me with my novel, Guilty as Sin. Without her help and encouragement, the manuscript would never see the light of day.” ~ Ken Wilson, retired State Investigator, Certified Fraud Examiner, and author of Guilty as Sin, a novel of suspense, betrayal, and greed inspired by true events.

“Thanks to Melanie, Book Two in the Russ Wyatt series has been published.” ~ Ken Wilson, author of Paid to kill: A Russ Wyatt Thriller,  retired State Investigator, and Certified Fraud Examiner.

“Thank you for your help and guidance in editing my book and referring me to resources for publishing.” ~ Retired Police Detective Frank Goff, author of Chicago Crime Story: A true-crime novel inspired by actual events

“I’m extremely happy with what you’ve done, and now I’m published, thanks to you and your hard work!” ~ L. E. Kennedy, author of Get the Scammer

“Melanie, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all of your hard work. This has been intense, and you’ve been wonderful. Thank you so much.” ~ Lucas Kana, Hawaii, author of The Lei Crime Series: Princess Eyes Part 1 Book 1 and Part 2 Book 2

“Melanie has helped me with many novel writing and book editing projects. This one was difficult — more difficult than most — and Melanie was wonderful.” ~ Gladys Quintal, Perth, Australia, author of Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse
