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.
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
Good for adult piano beginners, a bit intense and demanding but I dont 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.
Nice young man that really knows what he's doing! I would book him anytime. Technician Christian!
After interviewing several Editors, it was a no-brainer to pick Tanya. Her skills seemed far superior and they proved to be sky high above my expectations. Tanya is a wordsmith extraordinaire who breathed new life into my story! She is friendly, communicative and was always available for my questions while working on my story. Bezuki Services / Several Stories High is a great team. They were very professional and passionate with my story. I ended up with my story that now flows well for readers and has an eye-catching cover on the book. I feel blessed to have found this team!
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.
Celia is the best proof-reader and copy editor you will ever encounter. Her proof-reading skills are legendary. Even the tiniest of typos and punctuation errors will not escape her notice. She knows all the rules of grammar, knows verb tenses, and knows active voice, the key to dynamic writing. There is none better. And she is a pleasure to work with.
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.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
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.
Tracey at Royal Empire was a true gem. I had three years worth of bookkeeping and taxes I need to get done to avoid paying IRS thousands of dollars. In less than two weeks she put my books in an organized accounting system, recreated accurately all by business transactions during that time with just bank statements, properly generated financials for me and completed all the tax returns. In the end, the IRS and State owed me money. I can now breather. Best of all, she is diverse with her skill set and now handles my digital and SMM marketing as well as the role of fulfillment and vendor management. I can't thank her enough.
Trish is a wonderful editor! Her editing of my memoir manuscript is impeccable. Her skills far exceeded my expectations. She's good at what she does, and is sensitive to my "baby." As a writer, that is important to me. Her suggestions for making changes are spot on. I highly recommend her for any and all editing and writing services!
Johanna is the best! Great teacher - she works with you on a curriculum that fits your needs. She is a wonderful person as well - high energy and super positive so she is a pleasure to spend an hour with. Daniel and I are looking forward to moving towards our goal of speaking Spanish with fluency. Highest recommendations!!!
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.
