    Tyra B.

    I am very happy I found Michael and was pleased with his work. I needed to finalize my dissertation and it needed lots of work in a short amount of time. Michael was flexible and worked with my timeframe and my budget to get a great finished version. It was cleared through my department with no problems. Thanks so much!

  3. #3 Writing.Edit.Tech

    (27 reviews)

    Sylvia C.

    As a first time author, Liane is exactly what I needed not just as an editor but as a human being. She is one awesome lady. She is reliable, honest, trustworthy, funny, friendly, and available via email or phone whenever I need her. Her rates are very reasonable; she is worth every penny she charges. Because of Liane I am finding the process of editing and publishing easy. She is fast and she knows what she is doing. My book will be released in a week or so, I received the final manuscript today. I am over the moon with the results. She has really taken my book to a level of excellence. She has gone above and beyond what I expected. She will be working on part 2 of my book as soon as part 1 is released. I am so glad I hired her; I can see an ongoing relationship between us. Highly recommend her.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Stephanie Mitchell's Wordwork

(23 reviews)

More often than not, it is important to get a second opinion on how and what you are writing. Most people do not recognize their shortcomings or have no time to do the reviews. This is where skilled and keen proofreader Stephanie Mitchell comes in.

Her prowess in English, attention to detail and open communication have made author Lisa Price hire her to proofread her bestselling novel Starters.

I make sure I am accessible to them while I'm working on their materials.

Stephanie leaves no room for mistakes in all her projects. Whether its a novice writer's manuscript, public speech or business proposal, she religiously works on them with the same respect.

Let's work together to bring out the beauty, richness, clarity or simplicity of your writing. We're not done until you're satisfied.

Say goodbye to inappropriate words and excess punctuation when you have Stephanie's eagle eyes on your work.

  1. #1 Endnotes Editing

    (70 reviews)

    Jennie P.

    Jennifer has done an outstanding job in formatting my thesis document from rtf format to APA 6 styles. There are over 100 tables in my document and it is not simple task. Her charge is very reasonable, too. She doesn't charge any extra fee even I offer to pay her more for the extra effort it has taken her to format the tables and graphs. She has continued to offer help and advice even after she delivered the job. I will use her again and am happy to recommend her. She is cheerful, efficient with great attitude.

  2. #2 Paradigm Editing Solutions

    (26 reviews)

    Rosalind L.

    Joe was efficient and quick. He edited the work with accuracy within hours. What impressed me most is that Jim does not assume, he will reach for clarity to make sure he is capturing the what the writer is attempting to say. Joe's work was so efficient, there is little room for improvement on this assignment. It was a job well done.
