Rebecca was the very professional I was looking for. I absolutely loved the phone conversations and the hard editing my resume and cover letter needed. Rebecca truly cares about her clients and it shows in her final product and expedition of work. I will be recommending her to anyone who is seeking services she provides. As for me, going from no responses applying to jobs to 3 responses in one day plugging in my new resume, I cannot sing Rebecca's praises loud enough. Thank you, Rebecca, for your compassion, your awesome work, and for being the real deal!

Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!

Charles Koppelman is a pro. He offers a turnkey service -- helping with hands-on conception, script development, pre-production, shooting and editing in a conscientious way that capitalizes on his considerable experience with both promotional and documentary-style production. He is responsive, easy to work with, and delivers a polished finished product. I would definitely work with him again.

Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely helpful and professional. He used multiple cameras to videotape our event, which was incredibly useful for our editing purposes.

I had been procrastinating for quite some time about hiring a web designer, but was so glad to be matched up with J-357 through thumbtack! From our first conversation, I knew that her great personality was going to be the perfect fit. She was extremely easy to work with, and provided exceptional communication. Being that we live on opposite coasts, I truly appreciated her quick communication and adaptability. She really went above and beyond to work with me across time zones, and was extremely flexible with my schedule. But it didn't stop there...the website that she designed for me is absolutely amazing; it is truly everything I envisioned and more! J-357 provided a training session once the website was complete. She is great to work with if you are not tech savvy, and explains the details in clear and simplified terms. She is extremely patient, takes into consideration your suggestions, and is extremely quick with the edits. Compared to other web designers that I researched, her pricing is extremely reasonable. J-357 provided an awesome service all around. I would recommend this web designer to anyone who is looking for a high quality, professional or personal website. Thanks J-357!

Julian Esteban Torres Lopez responded to my query promptly and with professionalism. I'm an English teacher (secondary language arts), and wanted another set of eyes on a large project. His experience in the private sector and also his education made him a good fit for my editing needs.

I have been writing for many years and have worked with Jim on a number of projects. I continue to be amazed at how quickly he is able to flush out the most important aspects of the writing so that the message is clear, concise and impactful. His explanations for his rationale for editing changes provide assistance in improving my skills. As an added benefit, he is personable and witty, which helps lighten the burden and tedium of the revision and editing process. Jim is an integral member of the team of freelancers with whom I work. He provides a unique and invaluable perspective and his skills and temperament meshes well with those of other team members. I am appreciative of his assistance and have no hesitation recommending Jim.

I had Don edit my non-fiction novel. I had had it reviewed by many, so was mostly looking for line edits, but he added value beyond that, plus taught me that what I knew about commas was mostly wrong. Not only did I get a clean MSS, but I also learned a lot. Thank you, Don. I'd hire you again.

    After seeing several books that Amie Hill has edited in our local bookstore, I asked her to review a memoir I'm working on. She provided excellent line editing and also provided some developmental ideas. While I'm still working on my book, I do recommend her services. She's both skillful and gentle and I believe other writers will find her editing enhances their work.

    Sally is the consummate professional. She is extremely detailed-oriented, sensitive to the client's needs, always thoughtful regarding the budget and the deadlines, and the kind of team player that you want on your project. She has superior writing, editing and proofing skills, along with all of her marketing communications talents. She is culturally, socially and technologically aware, and stays focused on presenting a superior product. I have worked with Sally on several projects over many years, and can honestly say that each time the end result is far better with her being a part of it.

    I create fun and engaging videos for you to advertise your business.

    About

    I am a retired guidance counselor. My doctorate is published in (ERIC) Educational Research Instruction Center. I have always loved writing and I have helped many of my friends edit their papers. I provide a small network of students from a nearby college with editing services. I find that the topics are interesting and I enjoy helping them present their work in a correct format and interesting style. However, I must confess that I always learn something when I read, and that follows that I learn interesting things when I edit, as well.

    About

    I offered editing and writing services of many kinds, including to published authors, students, and people needing web content.

    About

    Writer, editor, and project manager with over 12 years of publishing experience. Services include web copywriting, proofreading, developmental editing, and project management.

    About

    I am a published author. My original book was over 3000 pages so I had to cut it down to a series. I have two books out and working on the third one (all from the original book.) I find more content each time I edit so I suspect a long series. I have always had a passion for writing and can usually write 'out of nowhere' which means I can take an idea and run with it. I am best with long papers but that doesn't mean I can't help with short ones. I am fluent in Spanish so I can translate documents or make new ones from scratch. I have also edited other author's work for compensation. I am also well versed in Photoshop if you have graphic design needs for your documents. I have done many brochures, manuals, etc. in my career and I find art is just as fun as writing.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
