Very professional editor. Learned a lot from her. She responds promptly.... I recommend her.....
To start, I and terrible past experiences with editors. A friend convinced me to review Thumbtack for an editor, and I hired Ellie to edit my dissertation. At first, I was skeptical. I did not want to spend hard earned money on a writing critique from a stranger when I knew I could do it myself. I felt the if I hired someone that editor would merely find grammatical mistakes and email my project back to me. Ellie was different; she was amazing. She approached my project as a learning opportunity and not just a grammatical essay. Her comments were straight to the point, and she gave me insight from a veteran professor's point of view. Ellie even offered to prepare me for my Proposal Defense. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with a thesis, dissertation or other writing projects.
I had a wonderful experience with Temi. I consulted with multiple high profile editors for my capstone project, and she stood out the most to me. It is vital to hire an editor that is both professional and empathetic because the process of attaining a doctoral degree is stressful enough on its own.
They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
After sending off two scripts, one to Steph and one to another editor, she finished first and did a great job! Speed and efficacy are what I'm looking for in my editors, she gave me both and charged less!
Tanya Besmehn at Several Stories High Writing answer my inquiry very fast. She gave me a very affordable quote for my book. I know I am going to enjoy working with her.
Celia Pool has edited a few of my novels, and done a fabulous job. Taking her time, she has not only corrected my grammar, but has also made invaluable suggestions on some of my wording. She has also been fair when objecting to writings that she felt were not up to par with my better material.
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.
Caroline helped me edit a speech I gave to a group of eighty women at a church retreat. Her comments were insightful. Working with her helped to clarify my thoughts and tighten my presentation.
Patrick has worked both as my manager and mentor, as well as someone I have hired as a freelance copy editor. He is extremely reliable and always provides solid feedback on both writing, editing and any other questions that writers or editors might face.
Working with Julia Bourbois has been a pleasure. She is very bright, responsive, professional, and an excellent writer/editor. I would recommend her to anyone.
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.
