If you are looking for someone who is a master at making words flow, who creates powerful headlines and is an all-round expert at expressing the written word in its most glorious form, then talk to Rod Chapman. I speak from real experience. Without Rod Chapman's expert guidance and skillful mastery, my book would never have been completed. From the original loosely arranged first draft, he molded and reorganized the material into a dynamic text that is easy to read and understand. I heartily endorse Rod's talent and abilities.

In November 1998 I self-published my first book, Take This Job and Love It! The Joys of Professional Selling. I am pleased to say that in only five months the book hit the 50% mark of a Canadian best-seller. This is in part to your role as chief editor. Your input and editorial talents contributed significantly to the overall professionalism of my book. We continue to receive very positive feedback on how easy it is to read.

Rod Chapman is to books what a conductor is to a great orchestra. With his know-how, he makes sure everything is tuned, organized and sounding great! I thank him for his professionalism and kind words of encouragement.

It gives me great pleasure to write a letter of reference for Rod Chapman. Mr. Chapman recently edited my book, Forgiveness, The Mystery and the Miracle.
Throughout the editing process, he was organized, professional and always met the established deadlines. His communication was clear, concise and timely. He was responsive to my thoughts and comments, and was always respectful of my voice, my intention and the message I wished to convey in my book.
Even though we were separated by great geographical distance, using the internet was a very satisfactory process and the efficiency of time and communication worked beautifully using email technology.
Rod Chapman has exceptional ability in editing. He sees the big picture and works hard to help the book sing in the author's lyrics.

I poured my heart into the book, but was concerned that I hadn't effectively communicated my feelings. After interviewing a few successful editors, I finally shared my concern with best-selling author Les Hewitt. Les read the manuscript and said that I was a good editor away from a good book. He recommended his editor and friend, Rod Chapman. Rod, like Michelangelo, worked with me over a period of several months, chipping and chiseling the manuscript until it was exactly the shape I had originally intended.
