I was very impressed with the editing and critiquing that Rebecca did with my resume and cover letter. Very reliable. Excellent work. Highly recommended. If I'm ever in need of future services, I will be utilizing her again. Thanks!!! Completely Satisfied.

Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. KRA ImageDesigns Photography did a great job at my wedding. Anna and her's husband were on time, very professional but at the same time extremely friendly and easy to get along with. Every moment, even the littlest moments that mean so much were captured. I loved the pictures that I received, all of the images truly touched my heart. They helped to make my special day a special memory. The amount of photos that we received was remarkable, we were given more photos to remember our special day than I could have imagined. I would DEFINITELY recommend KRA ImageDesigns Photography to anyone who has a special memory that they'd like to capture, the editing/retouching components of the images were amazing!!

Jeff was fantastic. He is knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. He met a quick turnaround (10 days) deadline to edit my book for content, structure, and grammar. I would recommend him, and will definitely use him again for future projects! As an author, I was seeking an editor who would work with my voice to bring it out more - not change it. Jeff brought a great balance of clarity and direction, while balancing and polishing my voice - not inserting his. After interviewing two other editors and working with one in the past, this seems a rarer commodity than it sounds. His fees are also comparable to industry competitors, and reasonable. I will definitely use Jeff again for future editing and feedback about my writing!

Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.

I have been working on my book for almost five years. Finally I have it at a place ready for editing. Samantha is currently working on my drafts. She is nice person who actually wants to help. She is not in the project just because its a job. I feel like she actually is interested in my work. I did not just want to hire a mechanical editor who plops out my work without caring. Samantha is someone that I feel cares and wants to actually help. She is a good pick.

Better writing brought to you by better editing. Editoro! doesn't pull any punches on story development, manuscript improvements and being there for the writer. Sometimes just kicking butt is the best strategy to get the character, plot, story, and yes, the writer going. They kick butt. Recommended editing services.

I have twins in high school and they both really enjoy working with Scott. They learned so much in the initial "Writing Basics 101" with Scott, and now they work via email with him on various assignments. Scott is meticulous. Rather than sending quick edits on the writing samples, Scott responds with detailed explanations. He also checks in with me on their progress.

I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am to have found the editing professionals at "Let's Write!" The whole process has been very smooth, beginning with a kind of "get to know you" part and culminating in a thorough, efficient turnaround of my manuscript. I am in the process of writing a book and feel strongly that "Let's Write" is the perfect fit for me. I'm encouraged, mentored and supported, as well as challenged to make the writing the best it can be.

Julian is a thorough editor with a keen eye for detail. He has edited everything from essays to manuscripts for me and has taken my work from good to great. He is proficient at syntactical and grammatical feedback, but he has offered developmental and global insights on my work that ultimately made it publishable. I am always recommending Julian and his writing services to my friends, and I will continue to use Julian for all my writing projects in the future.

Excellent! Gifted Geek has full command of the English language. I am a university student and used ESL and Editing services at Gifted Geek. First, I used the service of editing for a 3000 word thesis. I focused the thesis on children's advocacy in shelters. Gifted Geek, charged the best price on the market. There are three packages to choose from which are all the best prices. I decided to get the most out of the service because I wanted the job done with an extra set of eyes on everything including proofreading, copyediting, and content editing. I got exceptional results. My final result is an "A" on the thesis. To better my English, I decided to take ESL on line with Gifted Geek. I am excited to move to the next stage in life. I recommend Gifted Geek, they can get the job done!
