Dr. Kovan was exceptional! She took the time to research and understand my field and the specific job for which I was applying and she was able to efficiently highlight my strengths relative to the requirements of that job and other jobs in my field. She was always professional, honest, and involved me in the process every step of the way. In each draft of my material, she honored my input and made sure the draft reflected what we spoke about in prior phone and email conversations. That resulted in a final draft that was exceptionally written, well formatted, and overall remarkable. I would be remiss if I were not to mention that she kept her timeline for completion of the project. I had a choice between Dr. Kovan and another editor who also had good reviews, but I knew she was the one I should hire to do the job after my initial consultation with her. Not only is she professional, but she is kind, motivated, and warm. I highly recommend her.

I had a great experience! I had never used an editor before but needed to have an extra set of eyes go through my dissertation before I submitted it to my committee. I was so thankful to find Textrous Editing. She was able to get my paper back to me in a few days. I felt that she went through my paper with a fine tooth comb!

Jeff was fantastic. He is knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. He met a quick turnaround (10 days) deadline to edit my book for content, structure, and grammar. I would recommend him, and will definitely use him again for future projects! As an author, I was seeking an editor who would work with my voice to bring it out more - not change it. Jeff brought a great balance of clarity and direction, while balancing and polishing my voice - not inserting his. After interviewing two other editors and working with one in the past, this seems a rarer commodity than it sounds. His fees are also comparable to industry competitors, and reasonable. I will definitely use Jeff again for future editing and feedback about my writing!

I appreciate his attention to detail. He is informative and offers insight as to why he is making certain edits to aid in my growth and development as a writer. He provides constructive criticism when necessary while preserving my autonomy. He has been a valuable asset to my research writing. Noteworthy: Julian is not trained in scientific writing and has provided me with the most meaningful edits when compared to those who are trained in the field. The sign of a truly extraordinary editor. Highly recommend.

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

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

      Amy has helped with various projects,including professional communications, resumes, and bios/profiles. Each time she was able to articulate my thoughts in ways I wasn't, whether she wrote the piece or edited my writing. I will go back to her with any and all projects. She's my go-to-writer and editor.

      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.

Additionally, as an editor, Mr. Costley has been able to regularly produce great story ideas and inspire his staff and colleagues with his passion.

        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.
