I had an amazing experience with Dr. Looby. She was thorough and expedited any edits in just a few days. All of her corrections were spot on and recommendations for wording and clarity were much appreciated. I couldn't have gotten through the editing process of my dissertation without her. I would highly recommend!!!
Michael is currently editing my lastest book in preparation for its release, as well as planning a detailed strategy to maximize its visibility and success. I cannot be more delighted by his professionalism, his insightfulness and pleasant attitude. He is a true marketing expert. The content of the book is mine but its success will belong to Michael. I hope this is the first of many, many collaborations in the future.
I highly recommend Nancy Sparrow and Sparrow Solutions for all business and household support! I have used their Business Services and their Personal Concierge services since 2008. I have 100% trust in them. Nancy is a dynamic person and I trust her and her team to do whatever it takes to get things done. On the personal side...they manage my credit cards, finances, my son's schedule, my calendar, travel arrangements, household projects, errands, storage units, etc. As a note...she is also a very solid editor of copy. On the Business Services side, SS provides admin support, inventory, operational support, business development and research, marketing and sales, writing and editing as well as lots of projects we don't have specific staff for. It would be a mistake not to go with Sparrow Solutions.
Jim Gromer was an absolute pleasure to work with on our clients medical interview spotlights. He worked as our producer in a very efficient and organized, three camera production. Jim led the video crews in four days of intense interviews of International oncologists, overseeing everything including the editing and immediate posting to the web... Jim has an excellent can-do attitude and he gives 110%...
I have worked with Charlotte on several projects and editing jobs. When I have an overflow of editing, without hesitation, I turn to Charlotte. She is fast, thorough and a joy to work with.
When the time came for my daughter to apply to professional schools, we wanted an expert writer and editor to teach her how to polish the required essay she had written to accompany her application. We hired Savan Associates, and couldn't have been happier with the results. Savan Associates worked back-and-forth by email with my daughter, had her rewrite her essay three times to incorporate information missing from the prior drafts, and provided questions and comments on each draft to help her fill in any remaining blanks. Then Savan Associates coached her on how to condense that information into a final draft. Not only was her final essay concise, dynamic, and jammed with pertinent details, all within the maximum character count, but it precisely captured my daughter, her background and experience, her love of animals, and the reasons she should be accepted to vet school. Most valuable was how Savan Associates educated my daughter on writing and editing. This tutoring process not only enabled her to refine her essay into the product she desired for her veterinary school application, but also helped her improve her written communication skills for the long-term. Best of all, my daughter was accepted into five vet schools, including one of the top-ranked schools in the country. We know her excellent grades, GRE scores, and personal interviews had much to do with her acceptances, but we have no doubts her essay helped distinguish her from the competition. S. L. Z. Orange, CA
Dr. Ethan Raath assisted me with editing my doctoral dissertation for a degree in Clinical Psychology. He did an awesome job, understanding my needs and using his fine eye for detail. What helped was his knowledge of the subject and willingness to go above and beyond what was expected by making additional suggestions and doing additional research. I wholeheartedly recommend him and will definitely use his services again. Isabella Geyer.
Alec edited my book for me as well as helped to create marketing materials for my new start up business. While editing the book he was able to articulate complex concepts in a beautiful way--very clearly and succinctly. He challenged me on areas that were inconsistent in the book which made the overall result SO much better...much higher quality and consistency. I could finally relax knowing that Alec had looked at my work and fixed what needed fixing! He is a treasure and I am so grateful for his work and his guidance.
I had the opportunity to ask Dana to edit and proofread a short review paper I sent for publication. She was always available for questions and also constructive with her comments on my writing. As a non-native speaker of English, it is always good to know why some combinations of words are less frequent than others but seem ungrammatical. Her training in Lingusitics definitely helps her making that kind of commentary. I am pleased with her job and would recommend her to anyone who needs a sharp eye to look at their writing.

I edit, write, copyedit, proofread, and provide a full range of editorial, web design, graphic design, book design and technical services for Ellen Byerrum, author of the Crime of Fashion Mysteries, and for our independent publishing imprint, Lethal Black Dress Press. LBDP now has three titles in print (in both e-book and trade paperback formats), and a fourth title is in preparation. The Crime of Fashion series includes ten novels to date, with the eleventh projected to release in late 2015. The first nine books in the series are published by Penguin Group USA, and two have been filmed. Byerrum also writes nonfiction and non-series fiction. I've served as in-house editor for all of her work from the inception of the series, as well as for her plays, her other fiction, and her Web site (ellenbyerrum.com). Our publications to date is total more than one million words. I perform all book editing functions for Byerrum's published writing, and for all Lethal Black Dress Press publications. Specifically, that includes substantive editing; line editing; copyediting; editorial critique, commentary, and feedback; proofreading; document production; and preparation of the final publication-ready documents. I also create the cover art and jacket design, design the book interiors, and perform production editing for the author's independently published e-books and paperbacks. I design, create, and maintain the Web site promoting her work; write and/or edit site and blog content; provide photography, image editing, and graphic design; research story elements, factual questions, and editorial issues; serve as tech support for our IT system; and create Web and print promotional pieces, such as postcards, posters, bookmarks, handouts, and media releases. My work is part of the process for all of Byerrum's writing that reaches the public, and for every Lethal Black Dress Press publication.

My university major was creative writing.
