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!

I had a wonderful experience with Temi. I consulted with multiple high profile editors for my capstone project, and she stood out the most to me. It is vital to hire an editor that is both professional and empathetic because the process of attaining a doctoral degree is stressful enough on its own.
They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
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
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.
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.
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.
Great editor. Listens to requests. Lots of creativity. Very happy with my video
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.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
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!
Caroline created a succinct, detailed schedule of Bible verses, feast days, and services for an action packed church retreat weekend. Her scheduling ability enabled the weekend to be a complete success. She has also performed as an effective leader in conducting monthly guild meetings. She inspires others to "get out of the box" and take a learning opportunity risk to grow. She is an excellent facilitator, self starter, and leader.
Amy is all about focus. That's what I gained from working with her on several different writing projects: a better understanding of how to focus my work. Amy cares about the unity and clarity of the final product, and she's passionate and thorough in her guidance toward those ends. With Amy, you're asked to consider what each sentence adds to the whole. She hates waste and has a keen eye for it. Through working with her, I've developed a better sense of writing as communication - how to get an idea across, how different readers will interpret different words and concepts, how editors and publishers will judge writing in ways the novice writer might not be prepared for. I think of myself as a more astute writer for Amy's guidance, with a clearer understanding of the place my writing can have in the world. But the best thing about working with Amy is getting to discuss writing with someone who cares about the craft in a more than superficial way. Amy isn't just a teacher; she's a scholar and a stylist, a creator and a critic. Her knowledge and interests cover a wide range of topics and disciplines, and she brings that rounded background to bear on each project she takes on. I'm lucky to have had her in my corner.
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.
Adam Gropman has written extensively for LA Weekly on a big variety of news and cultural topics. As one of the editors who has worked with him most often, I can say that he's a wonderful guy, an excellent reporter and good writer, so easy to work with, and just a topnotch pro. I think his greatest talent is that he really grasps topics and issues quickly, even if he hasn't dealt with the topic before. He's lots of fun, too, but definitely a grownup.
It was my first time using Thumbtack and Kat made it an excellent, enjoyable process! She was able to help edit some long essays for me to help for grammar and clarity and was able to deliver them quickly with a very short turnaround. Kat went above and beyond what I expected and helped improve my writing much more than I could do alone. I would highly recommend her for any writing related job you need done!

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.
