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!

Chris edited a 300p book. He did an excellent job with commenting, giving suggestions and correcting. He also responded and delivered in reasonable time. And did for a very reasonable price. He is very observant with thought structures. So I warmly recommend him for editing and copy-editing services.

They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.

I was in need of a copy editor for my manuscript, and Stephanie could not have been a better choice. She was thorough, but not at all heavy-handed, and completed the work when she said she would. I had asked her to keep an eye out for any inconsistencies and developmental issues in the story, and her comments and insight have proven invaluable to me. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

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

Good for adult piano beginners, a bit intense and demanding but I don’t mind the extra motivation. Chris says that students rise to expectations, and I've found this to be true after slogging through a book in a week my old teacher would take three months to cover.

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 have worked with Kandice for almost 12 years off and on and each time I look forward to the experience because I learn so much from her. Kandice is an excellent writer and editor, imaginative, creative, on point, is able to grasp even the most complicated narrative and massage it to be perfect. Her extremely wicked sense of humor is so refreshing. She can take the mundane and turn it into a brilliant work of character development and plot line mastery. As a public speaker, prepare to laugh and come away with much more knowledge than you went in there with. An actress, acting teacher, a powerful sense of character development that can bring out the best and worst in people. Dependable, creative, contributory, a leader, funny, team player, and a dear friend of the printed word.

Frederik has done a couple of things for my wife and I. The first was giving us some help with our wedding ceremony back in 2007. His writing lent inspiration to our day and was a nice touch. In the last year Frederik has helped my wife with her book (www.destination-wedding-book.com) by being both editor and designer. His ideas were unique and helped to create a brilliant final product which we are very happy with.

      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!

      About

      Currently many writers are calling themselves ghostwriters due to the income opportunity. However, ghostwriting is very specialized and must be mentored by another very experienced ghostwriter. a ghostwriter may never have any of their own books on a bestsellers list; they must know how to work with a writer to give their work bestselling potential.
