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!

I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!

I was completely satisfied. He was extremely timely and responsive. I used him to design a logo for my new business. His initial round contained even more samples than he had promised, and he was extremely responsive as I requested edits and narrowed down my choices. His pricing was extremely competitive. I would definitely recommend him.

Celia is the best proof-reader and copy editor you will ever encounter. Her proof-reading skills are legendary. Even the tiniest of typos and punctuation errors will not escape her notice. She knows all the rules of grammar, knows verb tenses, and knows active voice, the key to dynamic writing. There is none better. And she is a pleasure to work with.

Verified review

When working with a professional writer a business has to consider the writer's qualifications. Christopher from Ghost Strategies has a science background(Aeronautical Engineering), is an attorney and has written professionally for over 20 years. Because of this background he is very detailed oriented and is used to meeting deadlines. His science background means that he considers the substantive topic as well as good editing and writing practices in performing any project. He was an asset to my law firm and to my clients over a number of years.

She did an amazing job editing my novel! I wasn't expecting such a fast turnaround but she delivered quickly and efficiently with really great notes. Her process made it super easy to coordinate and communicate exactly what I needed. Hazel really went above and beyond, I am definitely going to keep coming back for all my editing work!

About

I oversee the production of exhibition catalogs for a major Los Angeles art museum. I have a strong research background in the history of photography and 19th and 20th century art, but am interested in learning about other subjects, as well. With an acute attention to detail, ability to multitask and previous experience with preparing texts for publication, I am available to check manuscripts for style, syntax, formatting, and accuracy.

About

I guide the client toward his/her goals, rather than merely "telling" what should be done. We have a conversation that piques interest, learning, and fulfilling solutions. We refine the end result! And have fun in the process. A little humor never hurts, too :)

About

With both an analytical and creative background, I enthusiastically bring over fifteen years of marketing, communications, new media/video, SEO/SEM, legal, writing, editing, and business consulting experience to every team and project I join. A natural leader who enjoys the camaraderie and effectiveness of synergistic teamwork, I thrive when facing a genuine challenge and tight deadlines. Beyond my versatile skill set, short learning curve, and reputation for meeting deadlines on time and under budget, I believe in creating a positive, mutually-beneficial (win-win) relationship with my clients.

About
