Hired Maverick Consulting for the edit of my non-fiction book. Very personable and even met with me in person. Edits and comments were easy to understand and helped improve the flow of the book. Edits were given in a timely manner. Communication was continuous even after the editing work was completed. Feedback was given as way to improve the overall flow and quality of the book. Very reasonable rates for the amount of work on manuscript. Definitely recommend Maverick Consulting for your literary work!

They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.

She is GREAT! She was completely available and responsive. I am a new writer and she helped keep me on task and even offered confidence building comments. Her work on my manuscript was excellent. She worked through a good deal of dialogue and narrative that was broken. We have created a comprehensive text. I am impressed and will continue to work with her going forward. I highly recommend her as an editor.

Skip took on a job that was pretty big and what made matters worse, a person that had just neglected the fundamentals of writing. It's not that I don't know them, I was just too lazy to apply them the way they should be. He reminded me of it. I asked him to be brutally honest and he was. The wonderful thing about him, he later pointed out the good things I was doing right and eventually made my confidence skyrocket. The job your asking me to describe is not only Skip helping me with the book I am working on, but him guiding me and restoring my confidence to get me back in the fight after being knocked down by life, people and dare I say editors and publishers. He made me realize putting forth my best effort in a world that is so competitive is just too important to forget. You ask what went well with Skip? Everything, but what stood out the most was his honesty and clarity of various situations and problems. The quality of his work and guidance is excellent and I couldn't ask for any better advisor. Nothing could improve my experience with him, that's how impressed I am with him. Thanks Skip and I look forward to continuing to work with you. Sincerely, Jeffrey L. Ivory

Emily Kazmierski edited my manuscript and I’m very pleased with the result. She is knowledgeable and pays careful attention to detail. Her grammatical corrections were invaluable and any suggestions she made for content adjustments were very helpful. What I appreciated most is how careful she was to maintain my voice.

Celia copy-edited my manuscript as I was preparing to go on submission to literary agents. Her work was fast and extremely thorough, catching not only typos and grammatical mistakes, but also helping to maintain style consistency. I have since signed with a literary agent (with that same manuscript)! I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone looking for a key editorial eye to give your manuscript a boost of professionalism!

Victor was amazing! I had an odd glitch in formatting my Word document to the CreateSpace parameters. To make a very long story short, the headers and footers and pagination were giving me fits. It brought me to tears and I was ready to throw my computer out the window. Victor methodically and diligently worked his way through the manuscript with patience, kindness, and tenacity and fixed all of the issues. Because it was such a problem, I was afraid at one point that he was going to fire me as a client. I could never have done it without him. NEVER. He was supportive through the process and fixed some things in my manuscript that I didn't know needed fixing. I am planning on hiring Victor again for a future writing project. I wish I had found him months ago! It would have saved me a lot of gray hairs, gnashed teeth, and I would have consumed way less wine. THANKS VICTOR! You are the best. I highly recommend his work. You won't be disappointed. Smart guy, calm, and methodical.

It was my first time using Thumbtack and Kat made it an excellent, enjoyable process! She was able to help edit some long essays for me to help for grammar and clarity and was able to deliver them quickly with a very short turnaround. Kat went above and beyond what I expected and helped improve my writing much more than I could do alone. I would highly recommend her for any writing related job you need done!

      Shaula is a professional and highly competent editor. I send everything I write to her, be it chapters of my novel, posts to my blog and even sometimes verbose emails. Her attention to detail is astounding and she not only proofreads exceptionally well, she also focuses on content and readability. She poses questions and comments on the things that work and the things that don't. Having a vast knowledge of literature and books, this makes her an excellent source to also bounce ideas of of, if one is worried about flow or plot problems. She can think it through and give her feedback. Shaula is more than just a proofreader, she's an editor. And she's the best one I've ever used!

          Duke edited my epic fantasy series of over 1 million words. My publisher had me cut down the word count because it was to much to publish and Duke helped me with the process. I couldn't have completed my series without him. He worked exclusively with me for six months to help me get my series how I wanted it. A master editor and ghostwrite (hell, the parts he helped me write were better than my own stuff!) and I wouldn't work with anybody but Duke. Thanks, man.
