Jim Oliveri's corrections, comments, suggestions and constructive criticism was exactly what I needed to feel confident that I have done my best before submitting my book to the publisher. A modest fee for all his expertise provides. I particularly liked the hard copy corrections, notes of explanation, and his offer of assistance if I hit a snag in the rewrite. He delivered as promised in two weeks. I am delighted to recommend Ye Editor to anyone interested in a true learning experience.
Just Ask Meghan is a terrific service. They are very responsive to our needs. They always follow through, very professional in every way. Cindy is fantastic, when I get home from a long day, and find my house shiny and sparkly, it is like a magic fairy came through and sprinkled sunshine all around. I'm happy to say this company is A+ in my book!
I have had Roberta copy edit two books for me (Adoption in Peru and Island Dachshund Tails) in the recent past and have found her services excellent. I am currently writing another book (Call of the Alaskan "Bush") and will have her copy edit it as well because I trust her work quality completely. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional.

Charles was hired as a ghost writer for a book. He took direction from me, the publisher and from the author he was writing for. He was organized and submitted a written plan for the project. He was easy to work with as well as efficient. His writing skills are excellent. He is creative and has an excellent command of the English language. I will continue to use him on other projects.
I met Ken Jensen in June, 2014 after interviewing several other potential editors for my novel, "Enemy in the Heartland." I selected Ken because of his professional attitude, his technical knowledge of military hardware, and the fact that he was an author himself made him an easy choice to be my editor. During the editing process, Ken's ability to keep the story's timeline correct and his suggestions on content has made my novel the success it is today. If you are thinking of using Ken's services, but questions, I would happy to talk to you on Ken's ability as an editor. Stephen Schwertley
As an educator, I am especially selective about the editors I chose and I have found that Leslie consistently exceeds my editing expectations. She has done jobs for me -both in fiction and non fiction. Her creativity, ability to “nail” specific editing details and on-time completion is remarkable and so valuable to me. She is the first editor I contact for help.
I first met Eric through a mutual friend and I immediately recognized he was someone who could edit my first published book. Through his insights and understanding of my creative intentions he really helped me to focus and make a coherent narrative that my publisher loved. He really has a knack for getting to the central message which was really important given the combination of images and text. Since our first collaboration he has edited and made great suggestions for my resume and cover letters plus has tutored my kids with great results. He's someone who understands the "big picture". I'm lucky I ran into him.
Ashley gave my memoir the extra help it needed to sound like a fascinating, well written story. I had an idea about how I wanted my history in football to sound, but Ashley knew how to take my memories and recollections and turn them into an interesting BOOK that readers seem to love. She was so pleasant to work with, and always responded to my questions, issues and concerns within an hour or two. Bes of all, Ashley always wanted to make sure that the book was MY vision--just with her great "author" touches and attention to detail there to take it to the next level.
Shalonda assisted me with publishing my book. I loved her professionalism and willingness to help me through the entire process! I personally recommend her to anyone who wants to publish their literary work. She's awesome sauce! Lol.
I have worked with Tim Frystak on numerous occasions over the past four years and have found him to be an extraordinary writer and editor. He has a breadth of knowledge on a variety of subjects, ranging from popular culture and sports to history and the sciences. He is always able to find a new twist on old material, or present new information in exciting ways. His research skills are beyond reproach. Tim would benefit any project in which he's asked to participate.
Kristine has helped me edit several of my novels and short stories. She was expeditious, professional and genuinely interested in my work and in making it the best it could possibly be. I have only praise for her work and look forward to using her services again.
Carissa Frisby worked as a freelance writer for me when I was editor of community magazines in Sun City, Arizona, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Carissa was a pleasure to work with. She is always willing to take an assignment, she turns in clean and well-written copy, and she meets deadlines. Carissa stands out as a professional freelance writer who gets things done in a timely manner, with no drama. She's a welcome member of any team, a positive contributor, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

I can take any piece of writing and help polish it into a finished product the author can be proud of. Fiction is my favorite, but I also have experience with college papers, master's theses, letters of recommendation, etc. I have a BA in English and am working on a MA in English. I have experience as a college writing tutor. I love the moments when the author and I are in sync about how to turn their writing into something that truly expresses them. I am not satisfied with my work unless the client is.
Women's fiction writer who also specialized in editing. I have worked with several writers in the editing process to get their work ready for publication. I am very detail oriented with a quick turn around time.
I am passionate about my work and experienced at the craft, plus I have developed many positive relationships over the years with professional colleagues. That shines through, especially when I write about people. Everyone has a story and I love to tell them using the written word. As a former English major, I am adept at editing copy, turning phrases and producing quality content for any subject matter, whether it's for a press release or company bio. I love to meet people and learn about their lives, what motivates them and why. I'm a "connector" and great at maintaining long-term business relationships. I'm more than willing to help my clients in ways beyond the scope of the project, usually by putting them in touch with other people I know that can help them.
I am a Gilbert-based content writer and editor. My educational background includes a Master's degree in English and my undergraduate studies were fairly communication-intensive. This background gives me insight into both business/technical writing and more literary forms. I care a great deal about well-written words and strive to make the most of all projects I take on.
I am a professional freelance copy editor who is detail and results oriented. I have years of experience working with online content.
I am not a faceless company nor am I someone willing to take your work for granted for a quick cash in. I am a professional writer looking to make a name for myself in this world, and to do that I understand the sacrifices one must make in order to establish themselves as a professional. I am an excellent writer and I strive to bring that fact to fruition by showing others what I can do. This is the most enjoyable aspect of my career and I plan to take it as far as my hard working ethics can go, then, I'll take it even further.
