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!
Ellie did a fantastic job editing my first book! I am a new author and was unfamiliar with the editing process. It is perfect! I highly recommend Ellie for all of your editing projects. In my opinion, Ellie deserves 10 stars!!
Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.
Temi did a terrific job of editing and proofing two book manuscripts for me - R. Scott Lemriel
Chris edited a 300p book. He did an excellent job with commenting, giving suggestions and correcting. He also responded and delivered in reasonable time. And did for a very reasonable price. He is very observant with thought structures. So I warmly recommend him for editing and copy-editing services.
Very promt and my book was edited ahead of schedule! Also the price was way better than her competitors
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.
BWA Design was the first to respond to my request for a book designer. However, his skills and abilities weren't what I was looking for as far as a book. If I needed someone to create flyers, banners, logos or websites, he will be my first contact.
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
Arezoo has been great throughout the design process. She is extremely responsive to all my emails and is incredibly reasonable in her costs. In fact, we would spend an hour going back and forth during our meetings throughout the design process and she wouldn't even charge me! And the final product -- a book proposal filled with graphics, photographs, quotes, and unique formatting -- looks great! She listened carefully to my input and nailed the graphic aesthetic I wanted for the proposal.
Mrs.Khan is awesome! She always has a lot of different books and stuff for each lesson. Because of her great experience and knowledge every lesson is interesting and informative. I'm very greatful to her!
It was an amazing journey working with Kalisha. She did an excellent job editing my book. Her suggestions and skill set were great. She was open and easy to work with. She would be a great addition to work on any project.
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!
Worked with Anita for over 20 years & She was a wonder person to work with on any of your design needs. Anita was always on time with any projects that were given to her with crazy dead lines. I would highly recommend her for any program books or manuals that corporations might need.She has what it takes to get the job done on time & would hire her for any design needs.
Lance made a unique video gif painting to assist with the branding efforts for my soon to be released book. We spoke about the vision and use of the content. His turnaround time was quick. He offered to revise it, however needed, but it was ready on his first draft. I’ll definitkey continue contacting him for effective and quality content with a short turnaround. The screenshot attached doesn’t do the video justice, but at least you can get the idea.
Stephen Ozawa has been the graphic designer for our symphony program book for the past 14 years. The book is put together over a 4-month period. He is very easy to work with - responsive and flexible, often working with material that comes to him late in the process. He is creative and adds new touches to each year's book. When needed, he makes artistic adjustments to copy and develops new graphics for advertisers. The work is always ready on time. Stephen also reviews the final proofs from the printer, along with the editor. His work is excellent; he works to a very high standard. Over the 14 years we have had no problems, only reliable service.
Shaula is a professional and highly competent editor. I send everything I write to her, be it chapters of my novel, posts to my blog and even sometimes verbose emails. Her attention to detail is astounding and she not only proofreads exceptionally well, she also focuses on content and readability. She poses questions and comments on the things that work and the things that don't. Having a vast knowledge of literature and books, this makes her an excellent source to also bounce ideas of of, if one is worried about flow or plot problems. She can think it through and give her feedback. Shaula is more than just a proofreader, she's an editor. And she's the best one I've ever used!
I have worked with Steve over the past three years on a number of short videos to promote a PR client's book and consulting service. He balanced her needs with her tight budget and produced several videos that have generated exposure, acceptance and revenue for her. I consider him a valuable part of my professional network and appreciate his insight and talents.

I am a writer myself, but I edit books / literary projects for new, aspiring writers and businesses. My latest project was Summoning the Darkness, by Christopher Scott. I only work with hard copy, and I don't travel. Having written eight full length novels and a two-book historical series that is published, I have twenty years experience as an editor. I have traveled extensively in Europe, so I particularly enjoy editing books, essays, and documentaries with those settings. I also love anything to do with nature. As I continue to get my work published, I will help you achieve your goals as a published writer.

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.
