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!
They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
I was in need of a copy editor for my manuscript, and Stephanie could not have been a better choice. She was thorough, but not at all heavy-handed, and completed the work when she said she would. I had asked her to keep an eye out for any inconsistencies and developmental issues in the story, and her comments and insight have proven invaluable to me. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
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
Tanya Besmehn at Several Stories High Writing answer my inquiry very fast. She gave me a very affordable quote for my book. I know I am going to enjoy working with her.
Emily Kazmierski edited my manuscript and Im very pleased with the result. She is knowledgeable and pays careful attention to detail. Her grammatical corrections were invaluable and any suggestions she made for content adjustments were very helpful. What I appreciated most is how careful she was to maintain my voice.
Victor was amazing! I had an odd glitch in formatting my Word document to the CreateSpace parameters. To make a very long story short, the headers and footers and pagination were giving me fits. It brought me to tears and I was ready to throw my computer out the window. Victor methodically and diligently worked his way through the manuscript with patience, kindness, and tenacity and fixed all of the issues. Because it was such a problem, I was afraid at one point that he was going to fire me as a client. I could never have done it without him. NEVER. He was supportive through the process and fixed some things in my manuscript that I didn't know needed fixing. I am planning on hiring Victor again for a future writing project. I wish I had found him months ago! It would have saved me a lot of gray hairs, gnashed teeth, and I would have consumed way less wine. THANKS VICTOR! You are the best. I highly recommend his work. You won't be disappointed. Smart guy, calm, and methodical.
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.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
Greatest experience I had with a editor. She was the best editor I ever hired. Excellent professional and on time with everything.
Frederik has done a couple of things for my wife and I. The first was giving us some help with our wedding ceremony back in 2007. His writing lent inspiration to our day and was a nice touch. In the last year Frederik has helped my wife with her book (www.destination-wedding-book.com) by being both editor and designer. His ideas were unique and helped to create a brilliant final product which we are very happy with.
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!
It was my first time using Thumbtack and Kat made it an excellent, enjoyable process! She was able to help edit some long essays for me to help for grammar and clarity and was able to deliver them quickly with a very short turnaround. Kat went above and beyond what I expected and helped improve my writing much more than I could do alone. I would highly recommend her for any writing related job you need done!
Working with Julia Bourbois has been a pleasure. She is very bright, responsive, professional, and an excellent writer/editor. I would recommend her to anyone.
Patrick has worked both as my manager and mentor, as well as someone I have hired as a freelance copy editor. He is extremely reliable and always provides solid feedback on both writing, editing and any other questions that writers or editors might face.
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.
