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.

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!

I have been working with Writing.Edit.Tech for 10 months now on my manuscript and as a first-time author I am very pleased with our progress. The quality of editing and guidance I have received is excellent. This editor gets me, gets my novel, and gets where I want to go with the book. I am so delighted that I do not think I would ever find another editor who understands me so well. Without a doubt, I am confident we will work on the full series together.

Nathan was my editor for five years. I wrote a weekly column for the Four Story website. I had never written before nor knew how to publish things. I got the job because . . . never mind, it's a long story. Anyway, he gently and tactfully showed me things I didn't know. He's fair and correct on all things editorial. He is a really fine writer in his own right. He's smart. He's got a treasure trove of arcane information that he can translate into wonderful things. I would recommend him as an editor, a writer, a teacher, a grammarian, and a knower-of-things. He's also punctual.

Many people claim they can edit or write, but what will they do with your work when they repeat themselves or fail to use correct punctuation in their advertisements? Also, most of these persons use per-page pricing, which will work against you, because an editor usually won't spend the added time that difficult pages require. This is why my fee is based on a fair, hourly rate. Many businesses depend on a graphic artist to also select media and write copy, people who have little idea about the consumer psychology of highlighting the essentials of an enterprise. Do not trust your projects to an amateur. You owe it to yourself to hand the reins to a veteran, professional writer, editor of several publications, fundraiser and marketing wizard. I offer the highest-caliber, proven communicative skills, consultation, and personal interaction with potential sources of your business's revenue. I operate with minimal overheads, and I also provide expert, screenplay doctoring, book editing, promotional DVD production, website development, and tutoring in American Culture, English language, and basic Math. Contact me for my rates and terms. Thanks.
