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!
Charles Koppelman knows how to use the art and language of film to tell a compelling story, and brings his intelligence and creativity to everything he does. He tailors his approach to the topic at hand and the audience, knows how to select and get the best out of actors and interview subjects, and assembles a crack team of highly professional editors, camera people, sound technicians and the like to produce a beautiful package. He brings a Hollywood sensibility to his corporate projects, and also has mastered the documentary medium. He offers a full-service firm whose expertise extends beyond film to include graphic design, marketing and more.
Nando is a great teacher! We meet weekly and discuss different French books and movies. He is very knowledgable in many languages and easy to talk to and learn from.
Undoubtedly the best experience with an editor I've had. I look forward to working with her more as I embark on my journey through grad school. If I could give more stars, I would! You will have nothing to regret by selecting Textrous for your editing needs!

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.
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.
Jody helped me edit the draft of my book before I submitted it to my publisher for final review. Her feedback gave me peace of mind throughout the writing process. She helped me feel confident that my ideas were communicated clearly with proper grammar and punctuation. Her contributions were a necessary asset to the success of my project.
Kristen edited my PhD dissertation in psychology superbly. She strengthened the quality of my writing significantly, taught me a number of techniques to improve further, and worked extremely quickly and professionally. I would recommend Kristen to anyone looking for a great teacher, writer or editor.
As a parent we always are looking for that special instructor who makes a connection with our child and brings out his/her strengths. Coach Mariem is just that. She is always upbeat and enthusiastic when teaching my 12 year old son to box. If you are reading this review and thinking of hiring an instructor, stop looking.... and book a session. I promise, you will be sooo glad you did.
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

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.
I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.
