I had never used thumbtack before, and started the process somewhat trepidatiously. However, I put in a request for editors to look over my work and got a response immediately. Ann of Crickedit stood out to me due to her qualifications, speedy turnover, and excellent reviews. I contacted her and we quickly came to an agreement. I was not disappointed in my choice. She was very professional, edited my work quickly and efficiently and was reasonably priced. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a good independent editor to look over your work. I hope to use her again for future projects.

I know Breyer Editorial Services as Bo Breyer. I was introduced to her by another writer in my group whom Bo had worked with. I have to say that Bo has a real talent for editing and a very perceptive, deft touch. She doesn't take over or try to reshape the work. She tries very hard to understand the point, mood, character, etc., that you're trying to create or get across, and very skillfully shows you the parts that work and the ones that diverge or are redundant or superfluous. When you step back and look at what she's marked up, it invariably feels like it's exactly what you would have seen, and would have wanted to trim, two months or so downstream. The editing process felt very collaborative process. I'm working on a sequel, and I will certainly ask her to edit it as well when the time comes. Will Fournier,

Our political consulting firm hired John to write a variety of sample letters to the editor in support of a ballot measure. He grasped the facts accurately and turned out 15 letters within a few days. He got the job done quickly and I was very happy with the results.

Due to my diminishing knowledge of English grammar, I searched the Internet for an editor to help navigate the murky byways of periods, commas, verb endings and sentence structure. Thankfully I came upon Steve Dulas, a former copy editor for a local county newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve’s work. Not only does he have a lifetime career in editing and turning out “clean” copy, but I found he also carefully reads for content and offers creative and sometimes just common sense advice to look at vague or weak areas so that the narrative flows and is coherent. This advice is always given as a kind suggestion; Steve is never demeaning or heavy handed. Steve reviewed half of my book (45,000 words) in a timely two week period, sending me one copy with the changes and yet another copy with creative thoughts in specific places. It really was an outstanding job. I can happily give Steve a five star reference and am certain anyone would be as pleased as I was to find him. I plan to use him again.

Sara is a wonderful editor who always is very precise but gives reasons for her edits. She also gives great advice when sometimes I'm more verbose than I need to be. Really recommend using her services!

Janice Patton - who is the person behind "Jlee Editing Services" - is an extraordinary person - both professionally and personally.
