Lisa-Beth proof-read a script for me. She is an amazing proofreader who went beyond the call of duty and got my script back to me a week earlier than expected. Thanks Lisa-Beth! You are awesome!
I had a wonderful experience with Temi. I consulted with multiple high profile editors for my capstone project, and she stood out the most to me. It is vital to hire an editor that is both professional and empathetic because the process of attaining a doctoral degree is stressful enough on its own.
They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.
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
Dana did an outstanding job on my script for my upcoming video. I would hire him again in a second!
Kevin keeps it real, really love his work on projects. Responds so quickly I feel like he's superhuman. Started with editing my vlogs but now I outsource often for marketing videos for my company. Thank you Kevin!
I worked with Emily Kazmierski for 3 years. We have both grown in the field of editing. She is an accomplished editor and writer. In fact, she trained me and was very patient and knowledgeable. She possesses all the techniques and skills for editing and writing, and her turnaround time is outstanding. Her attention to detail (especially comma splices) is exceptional, and her ability to stay organized is excellent. Emily is a true talent in the field of editing and writing, and anyone who has worked with her knows of her gifts. She brings a great deal to the table, and I believe that she is the finest editor and writer around.
Celia copy-edited my manuscript as I was preparing to go on submission to literary agents. Her work was fast and extremely thorough, catching not only typos and grammatical mistakes, but also helping to maintain style consistency. I have since signed with a literary agent (with that same manuscript)! I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone looking for a key editorial eye to give your manuscript a boost of professionalism!
Jaz is my go-to editor when it comes to proofreading, editing, and story notes. I've worked with her on novels, applications, TV scripts, and even important emails. Breaking Jaz down: Proofreading: I'm dyslexic, so I NEED a good proofreader. Jaz doesn't let a single typo or grammatical error slide. Editing: She simply has an editor's mind. Time and time again she has tweaked my work to make it more concise and easier to read. Story notes: Jaz simply has a gift with story. She is able to pinpoint major problems and offer solutions that can really take your work to a professional level. She is also stellar with character and character voice/dialogue too. Jaz is always punctual with deadlines and a joy to work with. I couldn't recommend her more!
Frederik has done a couple of things for my wife and I. The first was giving us some help with our wedding ceremony back in 2007. His writing lent inspiration to our day and was a nice touch. In the last year Frederik has helped my wife with her book (www.destination-wedding-book.com) by being both editor and designer. His ideas were unique and helped to create a brilliant final product which we are very happy with.
Adam Gropman has written extensively for LA Weekly on a big variety of news and cultural topics. As one of the editors who has worked with him most often, I can say that he's a wonderful guy, an excellent reporter and good writer, so easy to work with, and just a topnotch pro. I think his greatest talent is that he really grasps topics and issues quickly, even if he hasn't dealt with the topic before. He's lots of fun, too, but definitely a grownup.
Liz Cole is an incredible proofer. She is thorough, extremely quick, and professional. I trust her with not just proofing my scripts but also with story notes and punch ups. I highly recommend Liz for any proofing jobs.
I don't even know where to begin in telling you just how highly I recommend Tracy. As a first time author, it was a bit daunting to interview editors and select one. But I had 5 key-words in mind regarding how I wanted to feel while working with an editor, and when I spoke to Tracy, she fit them all. Those words were: Wisdom, Trust, Support, Joy, and Ease. So I hired her for a developmental edit, and I am so happy I did. In addition to being a skilled editor (and writer), I was impressed by her availability and her willingness to answer my ridiculously long list of questions that I sent over along with my manuscript! Tracy not only did the job I hired her to do in terms of a developmental edit, but she also helped me believe in myself as a writer and provided some major hand-holding during some stressful times in this process. Speaking of the stresses, I had already hired another editor for the copy/line edit, but I ended up going back to Tracy for that as well! I really wanted someone who would make my "already good" writing even *better*. And Tracy did just that. It was just a pleasure to work with her, and there were many times that her answers to my questions made me laugh or her line edits made me cry (because they were so good!). I feel much more confident about putting my first book, "The Multi-Orgasmic Diet," out into the world now, thanks to Tracy's beautiful edits and helpful guidance! So if you want someone with experience, skill, attention to detail, and who will truly care about your finished product, I highly recommend Tracy Teel.
Kat Boyd is amazing and very easy to work with. She is a very passionate about her work and helps make clear to the writer what needs to be done to advance and better your story. She's brilliant and great to get along with. I recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Duke edited my epic fantasy series of over 1 million words. My publisher had me cut down the word count because it was to much to publish and Duke helped me with the process. I couldn't have completed my series without him. He worked exclusively with me for six months to help me get my series how I wanted it. A master editor and ghostwrite (hell, the parts he helped me write were better than my own stuff!) and I wouldn't work with anybody but Duke. Thanks, man.
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!
Kelly has been fantastic to work with! She proofread my script quickly and gave me incredibly helpful and clear notes. I’m working on a new draft now and will certainly continue to use Kelly for feedback. She is communicative, professional, pleasant, and, most importantly, good at what she does. I can’t recommend her enough for your story proofreading needs!
18 years best selling author, Annette Butler wrote Outcomes in Coding Practice. It is a college textbook, but I also have experience in the final editing process and have a good eye for a great story.
i am very detailed oriented. I get things done and I don't stop until they are finished.
