I really enjoyed the edits I got from Ye Editor. My manuscript was completed within two weeks of sending it, and the edits were far above what I was expecting. His value is amazing. He gave me a price I couldn't refuse and the work quality I got in return had me very pleased with the return on my investment. Well worth the expense.

Roberta is enthusiastic and pleasant to work with. As new authors, my daughter and I weren't exactly up to snuff with punctuation skills. Roberta keeps you informed of the whys and wherefores. I especially liked the fact that she didn't change anything in my manuscript. She made suggestions that helped fill in the gaps and kept the storyline cohesive. Bottom line: Roberta is professional, knows her craft, and is a team player. I highly recommend her services. I definitely will be using her services again in the future. -- Darlene Eutsler Lewlis

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

Eric is a great editor. He helped me in the final stages of completing my Masters of Science Information Management thesis. The challenge was that I was working with several other graduate students, and demonstrating our findings and bringing the thesis together into one coherent manuscript was proving difficult. Even though We were pressed for time, Eric came through and made time to proofread the entire work carefully line by line to ensure that our ideas were expressed clearly and strongly. He was able to step back and see the entire project and what we needed to clean it up and present our data in the best possible light. I would recommend Eric wholeheartedly for any editing job!

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.

Michelle transcribed some interviews and other recordings for me (approx 250 minutes in all) and did an excellent job!!! She is accurate, has an eye for detail, and is great at making sense of things when the conversation is not always clear. Best of all, she completed everything on-time. Michelle is super friendly and easy to work with. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her for any transcribing or editing job.

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.

Carisa is an editor's dream -- a highly professional freelance writer who is easy to work with and never misses a deadline. As the editor of a monthly magazine, I called on Carisa regularly to interview current advertising clients and write business profile articles about them. She was an accomplished representative of our company to our clients, and I never had to worry about anything. She worked independently, keeping in communication with both myself and my clients, to make sure the finished article was perfect. I'd hire her again without hesitation!

Ashley R. Carlson is more than I great author! She's an awesome editor! I hired Ashley as the main editor of my novel Armistice. First things first she was on the ball when it came to time. I believe I received the last of my edits, at least two weeks before expected. She gave wonderful direction and pointed out some key plot holes and needs for character development. She went above and beyond when it came to critiquing. I personally need a person who isn't afraid to hurt feelings when notifying me of things that just won't work. Ashley did just that, she didn't hurt any feelings or anything like that but she 'told it like it was' and ultimately offered great direction in fixing the problem. I would recommend Ashley to anyone who needs an editor. She is skilled in making the words on the page sound beautiful, proper grammar usage, and lets her true self shine in her comments. (Which, by the way, can be hilarious at times!) Maybe I should hire her to edit this review. :P So yes, Ashley R. Carlson would be an awesome choice for your next editing project.

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.

About

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.
