Gabrielle is one of the best editors I’ve had the pleasure to work with. She consistently, and with a sense of humour, edits our manuscripts into great works. She interacts with authors graciously and with deftness. Her attention to detail is superb, as is her depth of knowledge of grammar and story construction. If you need an editor of great quality, hire Gabrielle.
–Gwen Gades, Publisher, Dragon Moon Press
My editor Gabrielle Harbowy is the person I want to be when I grow up.
–Leah Petersen, author of the Physics of Falling series
I wanted to say again how much I appreciated the attention Gabrielle paid me on the editorial process… I just read a “Nebula Finalist” novel from [another publisher], and found so many errors that Gabrielle never would have allowed, that it gave me pause. DMP is obviously doing it right.

My manuscript definitely wound up in the hands of the right editor.
–Hy Conrad, writer and producer of TV’s “Monk”
I would like to say that this is one of the better first pass edits I have seen. I wish you worked for [author's main publisher]. Kent [Holloway, Publisher at Seven Realms], hold onto this person.
– New York Times Bestseller David L. Golemon
I spent about nine months doing my own edits, getting other people to read it, and then getting Gabrielle from — well, you know Gabrielle! — from Dragon Moon Press. I decided that I would back myself, as they would say here, and pay some money and get her as a freelance editor in to do some work on Geist because I wanted to give it the best possible chance, you know? And she did a fantastic job with it.
– Philippa Ballantine, author of Geist, Chasing the Bard and Digital Magic
Special gratitude goes to my editor, Gabrielle Harbowy, whose quiet grace with words and cadence transformed song into symphony.
– Nina Munteanu, author of Angel of Chaos and Darwin’s Paradox
Gabrielle’s work on my latest book, “Cold Magics” was superb. Her keen eye and superb understanding of language enabled me both to cut 40,000 words off my manuscript and to immensely improve it. As editors go, she is second to none.
– Erik Buchanan, author of Cold Magics and Small Magics
Gabrielle is a treat to work with. A writer herself, she understands the need to be both firm and decisive, for the sake of the story, and yet has a way of handing you the news in a way that is compassionate and compelling. Working with her is a true collaborative process.
Gabrielle is also uber supportive, and will always be excited for your successes in every field. She takes real pride in her authors. I count myself extremely lucky to have met Gabrielle, and number her among not only my favourite writerly professionals to work with, but also one of my strongest fans, and a wonderful friend.
– JM Frey, author of Triptych
…a superb editor whom sf powerhouse publishers should really pay more attention to.
– New York Times Bestseller Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms (R)
