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!
Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.
Working with Temi was an incredible experience. It was not only quick and easy but also professional, collaborative and educational. Temi gave my manuscript the final finishing touches it needed to make it complete- from start to finish, from grammar to punctuation, from plot to storyline. Temi's skills and expertise in copy editing are first class.
I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!
She did a wonderful job on Proofreading and Editing this 88 page letter to my daughter. She did this with no mistakes and the Editing was just right. If I ever need a Proofreader or Editor in the future, Guitta would be the first person I will call.
Skip is fast, accurate, and even has a sense of humor. I will use him for all of my editing. My book is in the health and wellness genre, and he kept my "voice" but corrected my sentence structure and punctuation.
Brad is very experienced in my field which was important to me regarding my resume and future editing projects.
Effective, motivating and painless! Marissa was there every step of the way. Even while on her vacation, Marissa was editing my son's college essay.
I called upon Laura to completely re-do my entire web site and create a new design (look and feel) including writing and editing all the copy. It was a sizable job. She was very patient with me I should I add! She did an outstanding and highly professional job. Without any hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone looking for web site development, copy design, social media marketing campaign and brand imaging. She delivers the whole package... I'm very pleased, and so will you be as well.
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!
Rowena is fantastic! From the moment I met her, she was so easy to talk to and work with. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, professional, thorough and more than affordable! She agreed to meet me in person because I didn't have a resume for her to edit. She also provides interviewing preparation and tutoring! I recommend her to anyone who is looking for this type of service.
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.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
Linda was punctual and made learning fun for our daughter. My daughter told me she loves her new teacher! We look forward to many tutoring sessions from her.
Kelli, is highly professional, intelligent, and detailed oriented. She is an excellent writer herself and provides high quality editing including proper citation and footnoting. I high recommend her services and am extremely satisfied with the work she has done for me and how timely it was performed.
Richard Risemberg has written op-eds for our publication. He is talented, intelligent, curious and driven. He turns in his work on time and it always better than expected. He's really a terrific writer.
I am a full-time lover of literature and adjective addict and feel lucky my hobbies and career are so intricately intertwined. As a character architect and story analyst, I spend my time happily obsessing over the subtle nuances in dialogue and musing over whether ellipses or exclamation points communicate a story's unique theme and tonal texture. With a background in academic writing, reporting, copyediting, features editing, screenwriting, and creative writing, I offer a wealth of experience to whatever writing or editing task you have at hand.

I've worked in television and radio for a long time. I know what I'm doing. I'm pretty low maintenance, and you'll be happy with the end product. I've edited video sizzle reels, full television shows for cable networks, produced audio and content for multiple radio stations, and currently produce many notable Podcasts. I'm a proficient cameraman and writer, but I stick to postproduction mainly.
