Introduction
People who read my books routinely say "I felt like you were sitting there talking to me." I love the diversity of clientele I've known - from major Asian clients like Kadokawa in Japan to aspiring novelists in Israel and screenwriters in Russia who need help. Plus, I get to write a lot of books, which I knew I'd do at the age of 6.

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

Skip Press displayed outstanding literary writing skills when he edited my romance novel. He turned it into an entertaining, compelling, fluent, and beautiful story that will be memorable to all its readers. Besides, Skip is personable, reliable, and gets the work finished on time without any hassle. As a result of my good experience working with Skip, I highly recommend him to other authors. Annie S.

I really enjoyed working with Skip. He’s constructive, honest, and respected my voice as a way to make it better. And reasonably priced. He even gave me some instinctual feedback that resonated with some other projects I’ve been working on. This guy’s the real deal.

I highly recommend Skip and his services. He looked at my work, and went above and beyond to help me. Skip gave me a quote that I couldn't afford, and because I had already accepted another offer for less. Skip lowered his offer to match hers. He's very quick at responding, and his advice is top notch. I will definitely be coming to him in the future!

Skip is an amazing person who is very helpful. He has been helping me get my screenwriting career off the ground and he has been so much help. He’s done things that most writers wouldn’t do. I appreciate everything he had done and I would recommend him to anyone.
