I always ask Robert to read my MS before I send it to my agent and he has caught errors many times.

I completely appreciate the help and suggestions that you've given me to date — I have nothing but positive things to say about working with you. It's a much stronger book because of it and I feel very fortunate to have been given such amazing guidance. Thank you!

Dr. Runté is a pleasure to work with. I agreed with his edits, observations, and comments, even when I was reluctant to make a change because of the work involved, or his comments caused me to rethink what I had written. I particularly appreciated how he always spelled out why a change should be made, how it would make the book more marketable, and make it a better book.

By far, Robert Runté is the best editor I've used in many, many years. Not only is he adept at developmental editing, with a keen attention to detail, continuity and plausibility, but a natural copy editor. He has that rare ability among editors to shift effortlessly between non-fiction, fiction and academic writing. Robert is, quite simply, one of those editors with uncompromising standards.
