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 have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!
Robert was on it from the time I requested help from Thumbtack. He is quick fast and efficient. I will hire Robert to assist me anytime I have editing or professional paper writing needs! Thanks again Robert.
Joyee was instrumental in helping me edit and revise my personal statement for graduate school. With his assistance, I developed a strong personal statement that ultimately got me admission into my top choice. He is really the best!
Melanie is excellent to work with. She gives more than 100% She helped me with a children's book and did a wonderful job. She answered my questions in a timely manner and returned my work to me ahead of schedule. My next project will be articles in the field of Human Resources which I plan to ask for her editing expertise. I highly recommend Melanie of Elegant Editing.
Mauri has been very effective in proofreading and editing my academic paper. So far Mauri has done a great job and her professional contribution to my work is excellent. I do hope I will be able to accomplish my project.
Absolute pleasure to work with! She did wonders with editing!! 10/10 recommend!!
Was very professional Had extra copies and a flash drive ready for me.
The work process with Dana was professional and pleasant from beginning to end. Dana understood exactly what we were looking for, and that can be seen in the excellent copy he provided us.
Celia copy-edited my manuscript as I was preparing to go on submission to literary agents. Her work was fast and extremely thorough, catching not only typos and grammatical mistakes, but also helping to maintain style consistency. I have since signed with a literary agent (with that same manuscript)! I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone looking for a key editorial eye to give your manuscript a boost of professionalism!
Kevin keeps it real, really love his work on projects. Responds so quickly I feel like he's superhuman. Started with editing my vlogs but now I outsource often for marketing videos for my company. Thank you Kevin!
Rudy has terrific technical writing skills. His writing skills are equally precise and accurate in English and Spanish. It was a pleasure to work with Rudy as he edited my work.
Jaz is my go-to editor when it comes to proofreading, editing, and story notes. I've worked with her on novels, applications, TV scripts, and even important emails. Breaking Jaz down: Proofreading: I'm dyslexic, so I NEED a good proofreader. Jaz doesn't let a single typo or grammatical error slide. Editing: She simply has an editor's mind. Time and time again she has tweaked my work to make it more concise and easier to read. Story notes: Jaz simply has a gift with story. She is able to pinpoint major problems and offer solutions that can really take your work to a professional level. She is also stellar with character and character voice/dialogue too. Jaz is always punctual with deadlines and a joy to work with. I couldn't recommend her more!
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
Marc helped me edit my website materials and the experience had been great! I contacted Marc for proofreading and I really like his writing style. Besides, he is very patient and nice to work with. I strongly recommend Marc!!
Kelli, is highly professional, intelligent, and detailed oriented. She is an excellent writer herself and provides high quality editing including proper citation and footnoting. I high recommend her services and am extremely satisfied with the work she has done for me and how timely it was performed.
Chris has edited my blogs, speeches, and writings for over two years. He also handles all of my social media. I couldn't have accomplished what I have without him. He is my eyes and ears for publications and social media. -- Patty Alper (www.teachtowork.com)
Duke edited my epic fantasy series of over 1 million words. My publisher had me cut down the word count because it was to much to publish and Duke helped me with the process. I couldn't have completed my series without him. He worked exclusively with me for six months to help me get my series how I wanted it. A master editor and ghostwrite (hell, the parts he helped me write were better than my own stuff!) and I wouldn't work with anybody but Duke. Thanks, man.
