Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!
We hired Anna & Jonathan for my daughter's graduation party. They worked tirelessly at the event and did not even take a single break. Later they did excellent editing and created outstanding pictures. I highly recommend them for your next event! Thanks Anna & Jonathan
When I contacted Thumtack for an editing job, I was a week shy of the completion of the manuscript. From the list of editors that given to me by the agency, I do not know why I pick Dr Hendrick. Frankly speaking, I do NOT regret it at all. When I received an email from her with the attached document, I could not believe she could have than such a SUPERB job in such a short time. She is EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE. She is a FANTASTIC editor. Thank you very much, Thumbtack! Thanks a million Dr. Hendrick!!! Dr. Jacques-Raphael Georges
My company hired Koppelman & Associates for a corporate event video. We were looking for professionalism and reliability, and Koppelman & Associates did not dissapoint. Our event took more time than anticipated, and the final video required detailed editing. Koppelman & Associates’s service throughout the process was thorough, and resulted in a great video at a very reasonable price. We will definitely use his service again.
Textrous was responsive and even checking in with me more than I checked in with her. She gave great comments and formatting tips. I was very thankful to have Textrous editing my thesis (APA format) through my own stress.
Jeff is super helpful and strait forward advisor. He gave me both detailed editing and general directional suggestion for my Thesis paper. Highly recommended! =D
Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.
Im helped me with editing my manuscript for a book. He was very detail oriented and did a great job! Could not have done it without him
I have been working on my book for almost five years. Finally I have it at a place ready for editing. Samantha is currently working on my drafts. She is nice person who actually wants to help. She is not in the project just because its a job. I feel like she actually is interested in my work. I did not just want to hire a mechanical editor who plops out my work without caring. Samantha is someone that I feel cares and wants to actually help. She is a good pick.
She replies swiftly to her messages. She did a great work in editing my manual.
Better writing brought to you by better editing. Editoro! doesn't pull any punches on story development, manuscript improvements and being there for the writer. Sometimes just kicking butt is the best strategy to get the character, plot, story, and yes, the writer going. They kick butt. Recommended editing services.
She understood what I needed and then provided valuable and relevant editing.
From the first session she helped me get organized and see my plan. I needed her before "Editing". She was helpful in asking great questions, making me think bigger than my plan which is why she will continue with our team! Her honesty and ability to give that to me was the first I had and it was what got me "unstuck". Breaking free with Marian was the missing link. Now it is onto Editing with Marian. Thankfully she had these other talents about how to get who we are to the audience we want to reach. Marian teaches and trains you if you don't know something. When I asked random questions about anything, it seemed like she knew how to get the answer or knew the process herself. Wow! I am richer because I found her on Thumbtack. Now it is onto Editing. She prepared me, I am ready. Thank you Marian. I will be hiring you again. You helped me trust me.
Mary Rakow is my cup of tea. Her editing of my manuscript was encouraging and practical. Working with her has helped my ideas flow, and I'm excited and engaged after a long period of being stuck. Mary 'sees' where a work needs to go and is supportive of both me and my writing.
Kristen was excellent in every way. Her editing suggestions were all very helpful. By the way, this block of your form was almost invisible to me. I didn't even know it was here, until "Submit Review" wouldn't work for me, and I searched for the reason why. This part of the form appeared very faintly, the text in it was illegible because it was so faint.
Julian is a thorough editor with a keen eye for detail. He has edited everything from essays to manuscripts for me and has taken my work from good to great. He is proficient at syntactical and grammatical feedback, but he has offered developmental and global insights on my work that ultimately made it publishable. I am always recommending Julian and his writing services to my friends, and I will continue to use Julian for all my writing projects in the future.
I have only good things to say about working with James at RedPen Editorial Services. He delivered what he said he would in the exact time frame we agreed on. The corrections, comments, and suggestions he made were just what I needed. I'm working on the revision of my novel now,and I would be happy to work with him again, and probably will.
Joe Santos was very helpful. Polite and understanding. I would refer him highly.
