A Creative Experience is absolutely professional about their work. Susan and Frank were exceptional in their timeliness and satisfactory completion of my first book cover. I would definitely refer them and will use them again for other projects!
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!
Ellie did a fantastic job editing my first book! I am a new author and was unfamiliar with the editing process. It is perfect! I highly recommend Ellie for all of your editing projects. In my opinion, Ellie deserves 10 stars!!
Temi did a terrific job of editing and proofing two book manuscripts for me - R. Scott Lemriel
Very promt and my book was edited ahead of schedule! Also the price was way better than her competitors
Our company needed a copy editor to review a soon-to-be-published book. Stephanie was very quick, fairly-priced, professional, and detail-oriented. Not only did she catch errors, but she suggested intelligent changes that our writer hadn't thought of. Our firm's professional writer even commended her editing skills, and asked if we could use her again to edit future corporate articles. I highly recommend Stephanie, and hope that we will have many chances to use her editing services again!
Celia is very professional. Met all deadlines. she was in constant communication with me. Easy to work with. I will be using her again for my next book. Her service was outstanding.
BWA Design was the first to respond to my request for a book designer. However, his skills and abilities weren't what I was looking for as far as a book. If I needed someone to create flyers, banners, logos or websites, he will be my first contact.
I sent Jillian five of my college application essays for the various schools I am applying to. She edited all of them and e-mailed them back within two days. She fully proofread them for grammar mistakes and also helped me brainstorm some more creative ways to approach some of the questions. I feel much less stressed about my applications after working with her. I was a little leery to hire Jillian because she is so new to Thumbtack, but decided to take a chance on Red Pen Wench and I'm so glad that I did. She was great to work with and I will definitely be telling my friends to use her services too.
Arezoo has been great throughout the design process. She is extremely responsive to all my emails and is incredibly reasonable in her costs. In fact, we would spend an hour going back and forth during our meetings throughout the design process and she wouldn't even charge me! And the final product -- a book proposal filled with graphics, photographs, quotes, and unique formatting -- looks great! She listened carefully to my input and nailed the graphic aesthetic I wanted for the proposal.
After interviewing several Editors, it was a no-brainer to pick Tanya. Her skills seemed far superior and they proved to be sky high above my expectations. Tanya is a wordsmith extraordinaire who breathed new life into my story! She is friendly, communicative and was always available for my questions while working on my story. Bezuki Services / Several Stories High is a great team. They were very professional and passionate with my story. I ended up with my story that now flows well for readers and has an eye-catching cover on the book. I feel blessed to have found this team!
Emily provided two complete edits to my first book. She was professional, timely and very reasonable in her fees. She not only provided invaluable grammatical insights--she also gave me great insights on the overall readability of certain topics. I will use Emily should I write another book and would recommend her to anyone. She is a consummate professional and encouraged me throughout the entire process.

I engaged CL for an ongoing project as my social media manager. I published a book, "Friggin' Bean Counters" with a very specific target audience. I set up a FaceBook page and Instagram account to help reach that audience, but with my other obligations, I had zero to little time to devote to these endeavors. CL read my book and has pick up on the message I want to convey. She has had full reign on my pages and has done an outstanding job. Our initial contract was for 3 months, ending in mid-December and I have already asked her if she would continue (it's October). I cannot recommend CL highly enough. I have a FaceBook friend looking for a social media manager and without thinking, I provided CL's name (without asking permission). Which I immediately asked for forgiveness. CL is an outstanding social media manager and my only request is that you let her have some time for me.
I have worked with Steve over the past three years on a number of short videos to promote a PR client's book and consulting service. He balanced her needs with her tight budget and produced several videos that have generated exposure, acceptance and revenue for her. I consider him a valuable part of my professional network and appreciate his insight and talents.
Shannon King is a great photographer and knows what she's doing! She makes your visit personal, relatable and she is a pleasure to work with. Along with that Shannon also has great results and is more than helpful!
I have had the privilege of working with Sonia at two different companies. She held the position of Sr. Art Director at both Stampington & Co., a renown arts & crafts magazine & periodical publishing company and Creative Imaginations, one of the top crafting supplies design studio and manufacturers. Her strengths are understanding a client's vision and elevating it with her design sensibilities and skill. She is a consummate professional and a great collaborator. She is artistic, has a good eye for composition, is clever, has a marketing background, understands trends, has created logos, designed numerous patterns, and has designed and laid out entire publications (e.g. Somerset Studio) of the highest aesthetic quality. You can have confidence you will get the graphic designs you are looking for.
Stephen Ozawa has been the graphic designer for our symphony program book for the past 14 years. The book is put together over a 4-month period. He is very easy to work with - responsive and flexible, often working with material that comes to him late in the process. He is creative and adds new touches to each year's book. When needed, he makes artistic adjustments to copy and develops new graphics for advertisers. The work is always ready on time. Stephen also reviews the final proofs from the printer, along with the editor. His work is excellent; he works to a very high standard. Over the 14 years we have had no problems, only reliable service.
Ruben is a teriffic designer. He works quickly and can bring nearly anything to life. In the projects we have worked together on (pitch books for film and TV), Ruben has done a great job of demonstrating his ability to find visual motifs and images that fit the projects. Deal in confidence.
When I first met Rachelle, I knew nothing about writing, but she made a published writer of me, helping me find my voice and teaching me the writing craft in a supportive, nurturing environment with constructive, positive feedback. Rachelle is an excellent teacher and her editing skills are unmatched.
