I contacted Bob about a month ago, somewhat lost in my attempt to write a book that would be highly acclaimed by both literary critics and the general public. Bob helped me iron out the language problems and provided the necessary advice to successfully complete the book. I am deeply impressed by Bob's work as an editor and literary expert, and I encourage all authors to contact him if they need the help of a true professional. Many thanks to Bob for a job well done. Alexander S., Orlando

I had the pleasure of having Bob Cooper doing line/copyediting for my upcoming novel. He was prompt and responsive in addressing any questions I had and was accommodating with my deadline. With his two-and-one editing bundle, I got an exceptional deal at such great value. He was very thorough in his editing and brought up points I hadn't even thought of before. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Bob helped me with editions on a romance manuscript. He was extremely insightful on his edits and suggestions, professional, and responded back to emails very quickly. You can tell he takes pride in his work! I highly recommend Bob and will definitely be reaching out again for future work. Thank you, again, Bob, for your help on my manuscript!

I was a newspaper reporter for more than three decades (El Paso Times, El Paso Herald Post, Press Enterprise (California) and Ventura County Star (California). I have worked with dozens of newspaper editors. I currently have a website: cjnotebook.com and have published two novels. Bob is a very good book editor who takes pride in his work and his craft. I hired him to edit my upcoming book, "The Serape Notebook." I highly recommend, Bob. He did an excellent job.
