    I am very happy with Rick's editing skills on a chapter of my unfinished memoir. When I read the edited chapter, it was like I was reading a book.

    I would recommend John to anyone who needs help with their resume and cover letter. He is awesome!! I wrote my resume and cover letter but I felt like I needed a profession to edit it before I apply for any job. Therefore, I asked John for help. Since I wanted to apply for a position which has been posted for over two weeks, I didn't have that much time. I asked John for help and he responded quickly to my quote and worked with me. He took some time to interview me regarding my background to have better understanding about me. Also, he is always reachable and asked me questions about my experience, so he has the correct info to add to my resume. With his help, I got several calls for interview. To get into the interview process is my goal, so I am really glad to choose John as editor!

    I was on a short deadline and Brody was very mindful of that and made herself available even on the weekend to make sure I got my paper in on time. She went above and beyond with her edits and even did research on my behalf. I highly recommend her!

  9. #9 Steve Dulas

    (1 reviews)

    Carla M.

    Due to my diminishing knowledge of English grammar, I searched the Internet for an editor to help navigate the murky byways of periods, commas, verb endings and sentence structure. Thankfully I came upon Steve Dulas, a former copy editor for a local county newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve’s work. Not only does he have a lifetime career in editing and turning out “clean” copy, but I found he also carefully reads for content and offers creative and sometimes just common sense advice to look at vague or weak areas so that the narrative flows and is coherent. This advice is always given as a kind suggestion; Steve is never demeaning or heavy handed. Steve reviewed half of my book (45,000 words) in a timely two week period, sending me one copy with the changes and yet another copy with creative thoughts in specific places. It really was an outstanding job. I can happily give Steve a five star reference and am certain anyone would be as pleased as I was to find him. I plan to use him again.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Bernell Editorial Services

(17 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I just love working with words and ideas. I love helping other people take the ideas or feelings inside of them and help form these elements into words that express such feelings and ideas. It is very satisfying. I think everyone has ideas and feelings inside that they want others to know. I can help with that.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

I have a compulsion to write. One day, I was teaching an English class while using a poem. I asked the students to use that poem as a structure for their own poem. I did the assignment, too. I realized at that moment that I wanted to write as much as I wanted to teach, so I've done both for all these years. I also need a lot of independence and freedom to work when I want to. I work best at night. All these things combined served as my motivation to start my own business.

    Kristen is exactly what I needed as a first-time author. She made the process easy, and not overwhelming. What she did not do was almost more helpful than what she did do - she let me continue my flow with subtle suggestions. Too much feedback would have been overwhelming.

We are still working on the book and so far I am delighted with Rick, his work and his suggestions. His fees are extremely reasonable. With his help my book will be complete and available on Amazon no later than early January.
