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!

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.
Ms. Karubian was all that I said above. Excellent person, professional, responsive, punctual and more. HIghly recommend to all and we thank her for improving our non-fiction book book.
We have worked with Sabina for almost a year now on both our 501 c 3 Public Charity and our C Corp. company websites. Sabina and Design Dhaka have gone above and beyond in their work with our companies. For many years we have dealt with people in this field and never received the quality, professionalism, competitive pricing, passion and follow through received while using Sabina and Design Dhaka. She is clearly experienced and committed to do things by the book. Her work has always been original and worth every penny and more. She has saved us tons of money and provided us a service few can compare with, comprehend or achieve. I highly recommend her to other businesses looking for her services. She has been a pleasure to work with, is timely and stands by the products and services she provides. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in receiving further recommendation regarding Sabina and Design Dhaka.
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
Sam is a GREAT instructor...patient...encouraging...I successfully have learned all of my first session interests.. My first session could not have gone better and I will book Sam for many more lessons. My highest recommendation.
Jillian Kinsey truly is an expert in her field. She definitely has the winning recipe for resume and cover letter writing. Jillian Kinsey examines your current resume and then is able to seek alternative techniques and formats which will create a more effective well written resume and cover letter, all doing so in a timely fashion. I strongly recommend her.
Celia was awesome with communication and just touching base with me. She did a great job copy editing my manuscript and giving me information. She's reasonably priced and good at what she does. I would use her again.
Great editor. Listens to requests. Lots of creativity. Very happy with my video
Stephanie has been a total game changer for me. I had an idea of a children’s picture book that quickly turned into 4 books. She has been encouraging in my journey of wanting these books to get published and has helped refine them into something that will be appropriate for publishers eyes. She has a way of finding my voice in her edits, in a very seamless way. I’m extremely grateful for her help and for her sharp eye! I look forward to working with her again.
Trish is a wonderful editor! Her editing of my memoir manuscript is impeccable. Her skills far exceeded my expectations. She's good at what she does, and is sensitive to my "baby." As a writer, that is important to me. Her suggestions for making changes are spot on. I highly recommend her for any and all editing and writing services!
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!
Brett helped me to edit my first poetry book. With her insight I was able to create an actual structure to my series of poems, to create a path that I could use to actually tell a story and make my work more than just a collection of writing. Not only did it help me with that book, but it also opened my eye to how I might look at things so that, moving forward, I could expand my thinking with regards to poetry collections.
Dr. Pops is editing my dissertation. She is responsive, supportive, and has rich experience so provides me with general feedback about my work in addition to being an excellent editor.
I interpret your work the way you want it. I make your voice comes out in your natural voice. I encourage you to write and re-write.

Currently many writers are calling themselves ghostwriters due to the income opportunity. However, ghostwriting is very specialized and must be mentored by another very experienced ghostwriter. a ghostwriter may never have any of their own books on a bestsellers list; they must know how to work with a writer to give their work bestselling potential.
