Koppelman & Associates lent professional expertise and a personal touch that made this project a complete success. I feel lucky to have found him and I give my highest recommendation.
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.
Kate is an incredibly talented editor. She's fast, friendly and catches all those little annoying mistakes that otherwise would slip through the cracks. I highly recommend Kate and Black Dot Writing!
Nina is highly efficient and a strong editor.
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.
Relieved, that's how I felt once I began working with Michael. I knew my story was solid, but needed help. From the beginning his feedback was invaluable. In written comments he helped me develop stronger three-dimensional characters, tighten the tone, pace, tension, and that all-important narrative voice. After his initial assessment I did the first of three rewrites. Each version was better. Michael was spot-on with suggestions of where I needed to restructure a scene or reflect a character's underlying motivation. He was so helpful with the big picture, offering specific examples and suggestions for how to improve. Honest but tactful, Michael was easy to work with, completely professional in reviewing the work and getting back to me in a reasonable period of time. I've worked with other editors and been less satisfied. Michael created a feeling of partnership on the project. I have no doubt my book is better because of our work, and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again
Don is a considerate, accurate and helpful editor. I couldn't ask for better in thems of helpful objectivity as regards his hand on my copy. Addtionally, his supplemental comments are always useful and thought-provoking. Any writer with access to his talents is fortunate indeed.
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
Meghan is a great professional. She is trustable, gentle and competent! I recommend! She reviewed with care many texts for me
Sally has done media relations work for us for many projects. She is remarkably good at connecting with the press and getting stories placed, and helping us to mobilize our grass roots through letter-to-the-editor campaigns.
I've worked with and for Mr. Costley for many years. He has always been professional with his work, done solid reporting, and created pieces that are both intriguing and informative. Additionally, as an editor, Mr. Costley has been able to regularly produce great story ideas and inspire his staff and colleagues with his passion.
Erik and I worked together on a commercial for my old employer, Asian Food Grocer. He and I planned the commercial from the beginning- writing, staging shots, recruiting actors. At every step he was professional, resourceful, and exceptionally creative. The filming of the commercial went smoothly, and what really blew me away were his skills as an editor. And even though it was my project that I came to him with, he put in more hours than I did, and worked far beyond what I ever expected or asked for. I am incredibly happy with his work, and I hope his future projects only get bigger and better
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.
