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.

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.

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

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 is a concienscious, professional, and extremely responsive editor. She is always available and even when she thought she was not going to be available for a while due to potential jury duty, she lined up a temporary substitute editor for us, just in case! I would not hestitate to recommend Emily to anyone for any editing project. She is very fast and efficient. Her work is exemplary. Excellent customer service!

Professor Khan is magnificent. I really appreciate her outstanding effort in everything that she did to help me with my college work. Just when I thought my form of writing couldn't be organized any better, she triple exceeded those expectations. I can't express my gratitude enough. Thank You!~

Dr. Davidson was the third dissertation coach/editor I had worked with, so when I found her I was skeptical and frustrated. Even though her rates are not the lowest, she is worth every penny. I completed and defended my dissertation on time. She provided me personalized attention, was always encouraging even when I hit snags, and her developmental editing helped me with content gaps and to write more analytically. Robin/Dr. Davidson also did a great job on the last round of proofreading edits for my dissertation; even my chair thought her work was top notch! I am grateful to her.

I have known Michelle for over three years. I hired Michelle for proofreading, English editing and tutoring. I was amazed by Michelle professionalism and English Language proficiency. Michelle helped me to improve my English skills and vocabulary. I was encouraged to continue improving my writing. When working as an English editor, Michelle was very detailed oriented and made sure to gather all the necessary information prior copy edits. Michelle is great with deadlines, is responsive and very professional. I cannot more highly recommend Michelle and am happy to speak on her behalf to potential clients.

    I don't even know where to begin in telling you just how highly I recommend Tracy. As a first time author, it was a bit daunting to interview editors and select one. But I had 5 key-words in mind regarding how I wanted to feel while working with an editor, and when I spoke to Tracy, she fit them all. Those words were: Wisdom, Trust, Support, Joy, and Ease. So I hired her for a developmental edit, and I am so happy I did. In addition to being a skilled editor (and writer), I was impressed by her availability and her willingness to answer my ridiculously long list of questions that I sent over along with my manuscript! Tracy not only did the job I hired her to do in terms of a developmental edit, but she also helped me believe in myself as a writer and provided some major hand-holding during some stressful times in this process. Speaking of the stresses, I had already hired another editor for the copy/line edit, but I ended up going back to Tracy for that as well! I really wanted someone who would make my "already good" writing even *better*. And Tracy did just that. It was just a pleasure to work with her, and there were many times that her answers to my questions made me laugh or her line edits made me cry (because they were so good!). I feel much more confident about putting my first book, "The Multi-Orgasmic Diet," out into the world now, thanks to Tracy's beautiful edits and helpful guidance! So if you want someone with experience, skill, attention to detail, and who will truly care about your finished product, I highly recommend Tracy Teel.

        Driven to write my Vietnam memoir, I persisted in that lonely task and completed a first draft. I was pleased, but knew I needed an editor. I contacted Cecilia Fannon in California and she agreed to work with me. In the time agreed upon, she thoughtfully reviewed the manuscript and vastly helped me improve my efforts. Her editing made my book more compelling. She did not change the story I wanted to tell, but it was better. An established writer, she is extremely intelligent, fun to work with, and scrupulously honest. A rare combination. Nothing went wrong and I recommend her to a wide range of authors without reservation.

          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.
