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!

I was in need of a copy editor for my manuscript, and Stephanie could not have been a better choice. She was thorough, but not at all heavy-handed, and completed the work when she said she would. I had asked her to keep an eye out for any inconsistencies and developmental issues in the story, and her comments and insight have proven invaluable to me. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
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
Good for adult piano beginners, a bit intense and demanding but I dont mind the extra motivation. Chris says that students rise to expectations, and I've found this to be true after slogging through a book in a week my old teacher would take three months to cover.
Techonomics quickly came up with options for me to consider then executed a solution that was beyond my expectations. They saved me time!
Celia is the best proof-reader and copy editor you will ever encounter. Her proof-reading skills are legendary. Even the tiniest of typos and punctuation errors will not escape her notice. She knows all the rules of grammar, knows verb tenses, and knows active voice, the key to dynamic writing. There is none better. And she is a pleasure to work with.
Caroline created a succinct, detailed schedule of Bible verses, feast days, and services for an action packed church retreat weekend. Her scheduling ability enabled the weekend to be a complete success. She has also performed as an effective leader in conducting monthly guild meetings. She inspires others to "get out of the box" and take a learning opportunity risk to grow. She is an excellent facilitator, self starter, and leader.
An incredibly prolific writer, has a way with words that'll make my book look like the discovery of gold. I'm very excited to get this project started with this professor, he's an exceptional writer and I see no reason why he isn't the perfect fit to write my poetry book synopsis.
Tracey at Royal Empire was a true gem. I had three years worth of bookkeeping and taxes I need to get done to avoid paying IRS thousands of dollars. In less than two weeks she put my books in an organized accounting system, recreated accurately all by business transactions during that time with just bank statements, properly generated financials for me and completed all the tax returns. In the end, the IRS and State owed me money. I can now breather. Best of all, she is diverse with her skill set and now handles my digital and SMM marketing as well as the role of fulfillment and vendor management. I can't thank her enough.
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.
Johanna is the best! Great teacher - she works with you on a curriculum that fits your needs. She is a wonderful person as well - high energy and super positive so she is a pleasure to spend an hour with. Daniel and I are looking forward to moving towards our goal of speaking Spanish with fluency. Highest recommendations!!!
Trish is a wonderful editor! Her editing of my memoir manuscript is impeccable. Her skills far exceeded my expectations. She's good at what she does, and is sensitive to my "baby." As a writer, that is important to me. Her suggestions for making changes are spot on. I highly recommend her for any and all editing and writing services!
Alma is a thorough and thoughtful editor with a quick turn-around time. She has helped me perfect various writing projects. From scripts to resume editing, Alma has demonstrated her ability to take any writing project to the next level!
It was my first time using Thumbtack and Kat made it an excellent, enjoyable process! She was able to help edit some long essays for me to help for grammar and clarity and was able to deliver them quickly with a very short turnaround. Kat went above and beyond what I expected and helped improve my writing much more than I could do alone. I would highly recommend her for any writing related job you need done!
Dr. Pops is editing my dissertation. She is responsive, supportive, and has rich experience so provides me with general feedback about my work in addition to being an excellent editor.
