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 hired Shelly to do editing for our professional psychological test reports. She was fabulous....Very prompt, accurate and nice to do business with. I was so excited to have found an editor so quickly on Thumbtack when our editor broke her wrist. We live on different coasts, but with the ease of computers, we can communicate with ease.
Belinda proofread and edited my novel (80k words) for a very reasonable price. Since English is my second language she had to weed out a lot of punctuation and grammar mistakes. Her keen eye reliably discovered inconsistencies in the plot and she suggested intelligent ways to fix it, but never tried to impose her ideas on me. She made sure my protagonist sounded Californian by giving him the right phrasing and voice. She delivered exactly the services that she offered. My novel feels significantly stronger now. I will happily employ her for my next book!
One of the best line editors and content advisors I've ever worked with, and I've been writing and publishing for thirty years. Very knowledgeable.
I really enjoyed working with Peter. He did a fantastic job helping write my business plan. I will hire him again for my next project.
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.
Meredith was seriously amazing! Some would say I'm a little high maintenance but Meredith listened and was able to understand my needs! I would assign something to her and she would be on top of it! I wish I lived near her so I could utilize her more! I highly recommend her to any one who is needing extra assistance!
Janice Patton - who is the person behind "Jlee Editing Services" - is an extraordinary person - both professionally and personally. During our project, Janice possessed enormous professionalism, courtesy, responsibility and dependability; and most of all Janice was extremely patient and a great listener to all of my questions and concerns. You would be very lucky and fortunate to have Janice Patton from Jlee Editing Services to take on your project. Her experience in editing and her skill level is remarkable, but most importantly- she has a very positive and supportive ATTITUDE during the collaboration process with her client. Sincerely, Michael Bayard - Very Satisfied Customer
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 Steves 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!
