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!!!
So professional! Chris did such an excellent job with editing my book. I will definitely be working with him again!
Laura is amazing at what she does . I am an esthetician with a busy practice and don't have the time to pay attention to the details but wow that could have backfired had I not found Laura She went in and did a PHENOMENAL job of editing my website. THANK YOU!!!! Our words represent us and she'll make sure you are showing up your best.
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.
Incredibly informative and helpful. Margaret provided excellent feedback and was constructive in her editing. My essay was much more cohesive because of her editing, but still allowed my own voice to show through. I would highly recommend her for any writing or editing assistance!
Ana was very professional and easy to work with. She brings a unique perspective to my writing needs. Her voice is illuminated through her word choice and storytelling. In addition, she has exceptional editing skills and I will be going back to her for any of my future writing or editing needs.
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
Alejandra is wonderful to work with! She provided high quality written translation for my organization, allowing us to reach a Spanish-speaking audience with our marketing materials. The turnaround time was fast and prices were reasonable.
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 pride myself on getting to know my customer and providing a personalized product that meets their specific needs - not just churning out form material that a template could help you make.
I dont edit for writers, but with writers. Yes, Ill make changes and comments and suggestions and omissions and give you my educated opinions, but writing is a communal activity. It exists in an interactive space, a place where a writer can explore all types of creativity. My job as your editor is to guide and shape your writing, to bolster whats working and encourage itand youto keep going. You write. I observe, engage, and respond. Then together we comb out the tangles and add in some conditionerbecause thats what working with me as your editor will be like: well smooth out the rough drafts, give it all a solid foundation so then the story can continue to grow. General edits and line edits. Private lessons: Tell Chelsey what you want to work on, and she'll choose a book that she thinks would be helpful in accordance to your wants/needs, and will read the book with you. She will assign weekly lessons and questions about different craft aspects in the book, as well as writing exercises. Each week, the writer emails Chelsey a piece of writing under 2000 words (either a single piece of writing or a selection of smaller pieces), and she'll do those hardcore edits. The amount of writing you send to Chelsey is up to you. Some people like to get comments on the writing exercises provided to them. Some like to submit the latest version of a piece she/he/ze is working on. Either of these options--or any other ones you might come up with--are fine. The focus here is on your writing. Chelsey will accommodate for and support all of the ways in which you want to learn and work.

I am an experienced editor for up and coming authors, as well as previously published authors. Lengths of the books, whether short, long, or in a series that has to all be edited at once not does matter. I will edit any genre of books, however I am most experienced in romance, paranormal, and young adult novels.
Many other copyeditors advertise themselves as writers. While I am a capable writer, especially in the context of editing, I always wonder (and I'm sure many prospective clients do too) if these editors might rather be writing, or if the author's voice will get lost in the editing. I've seen that it sometimes does. Rest assured that I am here to edit for you, not make my own voice heard.
I provide editing for all types of content and can also transcribe content. I'm happy to provide help with writing as well. I can also perform other types of administrative and office tasks.

I have a Ph.D. in Medieval Literature and have taught English Composition, Literature, and Irish Studies at the college level for 14 years. As an experienced writing teacher and published academic writer, I am able to help people proofread, edit, and improve their written documents.
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.
I care and this shows in every thing I do. I am passionate about writing, reading and my family.
