Introduction: People who read my books routinely say "I felt like you were sitting there talking to me." I love the diversity of clientele I've known - from major Asian clients like Kadokawa in Japan to aspiring novelists in Israel and screenwriters in Russia who need help. Plus, I get to write a lot of books, which I knew I'd do at the age of 6.

I highly recommend Skip and his services. He looked at my work, and went above and beyond to help me. Skip gave me a quote that I couldn't afford, and because I had already accepted another offer for less. Skip lowered his offer to match hers. He's very quick at responding, and his advice is top notch. I will definitely be coming to him in the future!

Skip Press was so quick ingesting back two reviews and edits. As well, his comments helped me clarify points in the narrative of the novel. I would highly recommend his professional services.

Skip helped me organize my ideas and helped me with wording my documents. All was very valuable. However I appreciated the editing the most. He took my words and brought them to life.

Skip Press displayed outstanding literary writing skills when he edited my romance novel. He turned it into an entertaining, compelling, fluent, and beautiful story that will be memorable to all its readers. Besides, Skip is personable, reliable, and gets the work finished on time without any hassle. As a result of my good experience working with Skip, I highly recommend him to other authors. Annie S.
