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've hired Marian to be my editor. The sample edits and comments she did on my first few pages was exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait to start this project with her and see the finished product.

I saw Tony's live video on Instagram and I was instantly hooked to how he breaks down concepts that can seem so complicated in our heads. For example - he asked us what are the habits that are holding us back from our success.. I hadn't reflected on this in sometime really and now I know what I need to tackle right now to be more effective. This is just one example! I also purchased a copy of his book. Very excited to implement the lessons I have learned. Life changing stuff. I look forward to the future with Tony as a guiding figure in my life.

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.

Jim did developmental editing for our book, “Way of Zing”, continuing into line editing and copy editing as the project went forward. He did a final pass just before we went to press. We spent many hours in conversation about the work along the way. We believe he played a huge role in making us take pause, really think about our work, and produce a far superior manuscript. We did not always listen, but his critical eye and his experience were invaluable. Hell, Bill and I don’t even listen to each other a lot of the time. But I am proud of our, and I mean, our work. This was a team effort. I would hand it to anyone and feel very proud. Thank you, Jim. Mark Gregory Nelson-- Founder, Author & CZO

Amie Hill

    Verified review

    Amie Hill took my collection of short stories and transformed it into a book, published by iUniverse. It was a pleasure working with a real professional editor who took the time to read carefully every word, make suggestions for changes, re-write some paragraphs, and polish the look of the manuscript. All of this was done in an attitude of acceptance and yes, love. Emilio Gonzalez-Llanes

      Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.

      We recently took over a small publishing company. Rebecca helped us edit and revise one of their books for reprinting. Her experience was invaluable - we learned a lot! She is very detail-oriented and meticulous, and was always on time. I very much enjoyed working with Rebecca and would definitely use her again.

In addition, I am the author of two published books and a one-man play.
