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!

Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.

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!

Working with Temi was an incredible experience. It was not only quick and easy but also professional, collaborative and educational. Temi gave my manuscript the final finishing touches it needed to make it complete- from start to finish, from grammar to punctuation, from plot to storyline. Temi's skills and expertise in copy editing are first class.

Skip is fast, accurate, and even has a sense of humor. I will use him for all of my editing. My book is in the health and wellness genre, and he kept my "voice" but corrected my sentence structure and punctuation.

I called upon Laura to completely re-do my entire web site and create a new design (look and feel) including writing and editing all the copy. It was a sizable job. She was very patient with me I should I add! She did an outstanding and highly professional job. Without any hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone looking for web site development, copy design, social media marketing campaign and brand imaging. She delivers the whole package... I'm very pleased, and so will you be as well.

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!

I worked with Emily Kazmierski for 3 years. We have both grown in the field of editing. She is an accomplished editor and writer. In fact, she trained me and was very patient and knowledgeable. She possesses all the techniques and skills for editing and writing, and her turnaround time is outstanding. Her attention to detail (especially comma splices) is exceptional, and her ability to stay organized is excellent. Emily is a true talent in the field of editing and writing, and anyone who has worked with her knows of her gifts. She brings a great deal to the table, and I believe that she is the finest editor and writer around.

She asked for $4/page. I sent her 25 pages. No money has been exchanged and the edit is not finished. She seemed very pleasant on the phone.
