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!

They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
Ms. Karubian was all that I said above. Excellent person, professional, responsive, punctual and more. HIghly recommend to all and we thank her for improving our non-fiction book book.
Sam is a GREAT instructor...patient...encouraging...I successfully have learned all of my first session interests.. My first session could not have gone better and I will book Sam for many more lessons. My highest recommendation.
Skip took on a job that was pretty big and what made matters worse, a person that had just neglected the fundamentals of writing. It's not that I don't know them, I was just too lazy to apply them the way they should be. He reminded me of it. I asked him to be brutally honest and he was. The wonderful thing about him, he later pointed out the good things I was doing right and eventually made my confidence skyrocket. The job your asking me to describe is not only Skip helping me with the book I am working on, but him guiding me and restoring my confidence to get me back in the fight after being knocked down by life, people and dare I say editors and publishers. He made me realize putting forth my best effort in a world that is so competitive is just too important to forget. You ask what went well with Skip? Everything, but what stood out the most was his honesty and clarity of various situations and problems. The quality of his work and guidance is excellent and I couldn't ask for any better advisor. Nothing could improve my experience with him, that's how impressed I am with him. Thanks Skip and I look forward to continuing to work with you. Sincerely, Jeffrey L. Ivory
I've been a co-worker with Emily at a distance learning school and an online magazine. I've witnessed firsthand what she can accomplish as a writer and editor for a variety of audiences. She has an expert grasp of editorial fundamentals and is extremely detail-oriented. You can be rest assured that any content she edits or creates will be of high quality.
As a first time writer I was very skeptical to whom I could trust with my six years of progress but Celia did an excellent job in editing, proof-reading and helping my dream become a reality.
I know Patricia is a great life coach, among her many other talents. She was editing a book for a family member and jumped right in and gave me so much perspective about my own life that it was almost eerie -- I had been seeing my therapist for a long time but Patricia jumped to the heart of things immediately and mapped out a course of action. It's plain and simple, Patricia is a genius!
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.
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.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
Greatest experience I had with a editor. She was the best editor I ever hired. Excellent professional and on time with everything.
An incredibly prolific writer, has a way with words that'll make my book look like the discovery of gold. I'm very excited to get this project started with this professor, he's an exceptional writer and I see no reason why he isn't the perfect fit to write my poetry book synopsis.
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.
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.
Shaula is a professional and highly competent editor. I send everything I write to her, be it chapters of my novel, posts to my blog and even sometimes verbose emails. Her attention to detail is astounding and she not only proofreads exceptionally well, she also focuses on content and readability. She poses questions and comments on the things that work and the things that don't. Having a vast knowledge of literature and books, this makes her an excellent source to also bounce ideas of of, if one is worried about flow or plot problems. She can think it through and give her feedback. Shaula is more than just a proofreader, she's an editor. And she's the best one I've ever used!
Dr. Pops is editing my dissertation. She is responsive, supportive, and has rich experience so provides me with general feedback about my work in addition to being an excellent editor.
