As this was my first experience dealing with an editor, I had only a slight idea about what to expect. I was hoping Christopher wouldn't pull any punches with my manuscript. As it turned out, he was brutal. It was exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional, very timely, and totally unforgiving. I could have counted the grammatical and spelling errors that he found but I'd probably still be counting them. Better than that though was his attention to the content and direction of my book (It's a 61,000 word fictional story). He had me questioning so much. Tense, repetition, logic, flow, etc. Did I use all of his suggestions? Almost. That's the other great thing I truly appreciated about Christopher. He understood the need for me to decide for myself whether or not to ignore him. He made sure I knew and accepted the fact that - yes - he is a professional editor, and at the same time he chose not to play the tyrant. Will I use him again? Most definitely. My only fear is that he'll read this review and call me with corrections. Vince Dowdle Jr.
Caitlin is awesome to work with. We were co-writers for the Loh Down on Science as well as Managing Editors (MEs) at different times. While she was an ME, she was a great leader and was super innovative and organized. During my term as ME, Caitlin was very professional and always got her work done on time. Although she had two internships and was in graduate school (a full-time job), she always turned in quality work. Furthermore, she was great at working in a team and was always a pleasure to work with.
Nicole Vanacore was very thorough and explained everything very well. My daughter had previously taken the SAT and did ok studying from books and website but was wanting another way to improve her score. Nicole Can her some great tips and understood what my daughter needed to focus on to improve her score. My daughter confidence boosted and she improved her score tremendously! I would highly recommend Nicole and will be using her again when it is time for my others to take SAT.
Laura Yaun is absolutly outstanding (Five Stars *****) - the work Laura does is incredible! I have worked with Laura over the last three months. She was always responsive to questions, always helpful and did amazing work. This was my first book and being a Techno-thriller, I didn't know what to expect. She went beyond my expectations. She was patient in answering questions and did what I asked with positive attitude. Her work ethics are great. She was quick to respond to email or telephone. I think that she did a great job, correcting, grammar, spelling, format, and everything else that was needed without changing my writing tone. She is very flexible and professional in her work. I am very satisfied with her work Laura was very responsive to my timeline. I had an excellent experience and would like to credit Laura Yaun for that experience and for helping me succeed with my novel. I've decided to ask her to edit my other books as well. She seemed to have lot of experience in this area and I requested her to take additional responsibility for designing book cover, interior book design and marketing. I highly recommend her. Cudos to you Laura
Maria did my book cover for me (front and back). She was so fast and efficient. Her price was very good. I would highly recommend her to everyone!. She knew exactly what to do.
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.
Kim is an excellent project manager, and has a commanding digital skill set including content creation, editing, marketing and publishing. Combined with her talent in photography, there's no project that Kim can't deliver on time, on quality, and on cost. Kim recently composed a professional Bio for my participation as a technology panelist. I was struggling to capture the right mix of education, skill and relevant experience. Kim found the balance I needed and made me shine (again).
Donald was absolutely awesome to work with. He was very thorough in reviewing my book and gave me fantastic notes to use to restructure paragraphs. He was very reasonable and communicated with me throughout the process.
Charlotte was very helpful proofing text for a history book andher rates were quite fair. And her work was on time
Receiving copy and very little direction, Tiffany brought a children's story about the Tooth Fairy to life! She was a consummate professional. All files were provided to spec and on time. She has such a unique style and the finished book will be amazing thanks to her beautiful work. So thankful to have worked on a project that features her work so prominently. Amazing.
I initially hired Anna-Maria as an illustrator to create a series of drawings for a photography book I'm writing for a large New York publisher. She has begun this extensive project, and her early results are superb. This is still a work in progress, but she is a skilled graphic artist who stepped up to the job with great energy and sensitivity to the images that appear in this book. I've also tapped into her grapjhic design background, and her familiarity with many fields related to publishing. to do some of the complex work of research and acquisition involving historic and archival photographs. This is a rare skill. She clearly has an acute sense of priorities and a feel for working on, and under, budget --both critical to this long term project. To sum her up,? I couldn't be happier with Anna-Maria. I'll send a followup review when we've finished. if you like, and hope still have some superlatives left to evaluate her then.
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
One of the things holding me up from publishing my memoir was the seemingly daunting task of finding an editor. Upon meeting Ethan, right away I knew my work was in good hands. He was not only genuinely interested in the story and content, he was adamant in keeping the memoir in line with my vision. Ethan made the process so much easier than I could have imagined. His input and suggestions made my project better, but never impeding how I wanted the reader to feel from my vantage point. I absolutely will use Ethan again as an editor of projects and recommend him to others.
Working with Keren at Lightning Tree Creative Media has been nothing but fantastic! She has helped me with several design and editing projects and I could not be happier with her service, communication, creativity and professionalism. I would recommend her to anyone and will continue to use her services for years to come!
Working with 51 North Creative was amazing! They were about to capture amazing content for me and had my website fully built a few days early. Would definitely recommend!
I was looking for a "birthday book" in which I could post pictures and write about the events of the year. I had a vague idea of what I wanted but I needed help getting to the end product. The service I received from Paper Bridge Designs was outstanding. Jennifer walked me through each step of the process. She always listened to my ideas and then came back with three more ideas that had never crossed my mind! Her creativity was unmatched, which resulted in a beautiful end product that gets complimented every time it is seen. The quality of the book is top notch and I know it will be a lasting, cherished book of memories.
Kimberly is an amazing talent. She did the Dia de los Muertos makeup for my book trailer and launch party. It was fantastic! She was wonderful with my teen models and so well prepared. Everyone was amazed at her gorgeous creativity.
Mr. Morse is an excellent tutor. I have an eleventh grader that struggles with reading comprehension and writing. Mr. Morse started tutoring for us with very short notice and even read the book my nephew is reading in class, almost completely, by the first session (with only hours to prep). He has definitely helped my nephew understand what he is reading by relating it to what he knows and loves, (football, current events, etc) and inspires him to write better. Apprehensive at first, my nephew now looks forward to meeting with Mr. Morse and has a new found respect for language arts. We are fortunate he came along and glad we made the call. Thank you Mr. Morse, it is always a pleasure.
Worked with Ann on my book Divas Guide to Dinner Parties. She has a great work ethic was exceptionally easy to work with and did a fantastic job for me. She would be my first choice when I do my next book and I highly recommend her
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.
