To start, I and terrible past experiences with editors. A friend convinced me to review Thumbtack for an editor, and I hired Ellie to edit my dissertation. At first, I was skeptical. I did not want to spend hard earned money on a writing critique from a stranger when I knew I could do it myself. I felt the if I hired someone that editor would merely find grammatical mistakes and email my project back to me. Ellie was different; she was amazing. She approached my project as a learning opportunity and not just a grammatical essay. Her comments were straight to the point, and she gave me insight from a veteran professor's point of view. Ellie even offered to prepare me for my Proposal Defense. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with a thesis, dissertation or other writing projects.
Guitta edited a screenplay I wrote. Her suggestions were great and helped me see what was not communicating well and what was unnecessary. The revision was clearer, more interesting and drive home the points I wanted to get across to the reader.
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
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!
I had a wonderful experience with Temi. I consulted with multiple high profile editors for my capstone project, and she stood out the most to me. It is vital to hire an editor that is both professional and empathetic because the process of attaining a doctoral degree is stressful enough on its own.
Lisa-Beth proof-read a script for me. She is an amazing proofreader who went beyond the call of duty and got my script back to me a week earlier than expected. Thanks Lisa-Beth! You are awesome!
They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
Rudy has terrific technical writing skills. His writing skills are equally precise and accurate in English and Spanish. It was a pleasure to work with Rudy as he edited my work.
Alma is a thorough and thoughtful editor with a quick turn-around time. She has helped me perfect various writing projects. From scripts to resume editing, Alma has demonstrated her ability to take any writing project to the next level!

My prices are reasonable and negotiable. I am happy to work with you to create content that suits all of your writing needs.
Tanya was easy to communicate with (quick response over text and email) and her transcription work was always submitted on time. She's definitely a good, reliable hire.
Liz Cole is an incredible proofer. She is thorough, extremely quick, and professional. I trust her with not just proofing my scripts but also with story notes and punch ups. I highly recommend Liz for any proofing jobs.
I am a film director and film scripts and treatments must be perfect and for that I rely on Patricia Rust, who hits them out of the park every time. With millions of dollars on the line, I cannot afford mistakes. Not only does she edit them to a T, she can rewrite them to make them the best that they can be.
