I hired Christopher to edit my manuscript. He found all the standard gramactical errors that are expeceted from any compentent editor. The part that sets him apart from other editors is that he takes the time to explain my errors to me and truly seems to make an effort to make me a better writer. Many editors get so wrapped up in what is wrong with a manuscript, they often lose focus on the story. Christopher does not. He shows actual interest in the words and offers his thoughts and suggestions on the plot and storyline. I feel he is an asset to any writer, and you can feel confident that he will make your words better. He is a tough taskmaster, but I know he's on my team. I consider myself fortunate to have found him and you will too.
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.
We found Elizabeth to be knowledgeable and more than capable. Ours was a lengthy project, and she never failed to come through for us in a timely manner. Her work was impressive, and she was so pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Elizabethan Editing for your editorial needs.
Mr. Gromer edited several clips of a baby bear in the wild. He located the music meant for this IPhone footage, stabilized and put together the perfect wildlife video. I am very happy with the end results.
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.
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
After several independent reviews of my memoir, it was evident that if I wanted to take my book to the next level, it would be wise to engage the skills and knowledge of a professional editor. Even though I had read the manuscript too many times to remember, the reviewers pointed out a few spelling and punctuation miscues. I was trying to avoid the cost of paying an editor for something that I thought I knew and could do well. It turns out there were editing concerns that I had never encountered and therefore, was unaware how they might impact the reader. At our first meeting, Amber listened intently to my concerns, confirmed what I wanted from an editor and also confirmed what I didn't want. She shared with me her experience and expertise, assuring me that she was highly qualified. Amber explained her approach was to read and edit a small amount of the manuscript and then to send it to me for review. With my "go ahead," she would resume and continue editing in the same manner throughout the book until the editing was complete. Such an approach was reassuring and perfect for me. Amber was true to her word, was everything I had hoped for and more. We were in continual communication throughout the process. At one point, when I became overwhelmed and a bit apprehensive, Amber sat by my side and explained each and every correction. She was always honoring and made mention of her own personal connections to parts of my story. In summary, I highly recommend Amber. She is thorough, comprehensive, skilled and very knowledgable. Having trusted her completely, I am now ready to take my manuscript to the publisher, confident that it is perfect in every way.
Justine is so spot on with her energy. I highly suggest if you have never had an energy ready with Justine, you need to book with her. Justine always goes above and beyond with her customer service, she takes her time with you and you will never feel rushed, she answers all of your questions and gives such clarity. Look no further if your looking for an awesome energy reading. You will be glad you booked your reading with Justine. After my reading, my husband booked a reading. She is that good!
Charlotte was very helpful proofing text for a history book andher rates were quite fair. And her work was on time
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.

Once I interviewed and hired Zig for an editing project on a book proposal, he got to work with clear and concise communication. He is accessable by phone or email and his editing his skills are excellent.
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!
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
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.
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.
Aly was a superb partner in every way--as she shepherded Tatra Press from concept to final product for a "book trailer" for a recent title, "My Cancer Year". She stayed within budget and on-schedule More important, Aly and her team clearly put their heart into the project...and their considerable talents. And, to boot, Aly's a lot of fun to work with.
**Send me a page or two or your work. I'll edit it for free. That's the best way to pick your writer/editor -- see firsthand what they do and how they do it.** I provide writing, editing, and writing instruction services to businesses, universities, government agencies, and non-profits nationwide. Ive done work for dozens of marketing firms, Unisys Corporation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, CH2M HILL, Prentice Hall, LexisNexis, HP, Webroot, VMware, and Adobe, and Ive written and edited corporate, government, technical, and marketing documentation throughout my career. Lets just say my work has run the gamut. Back in the day, I developed and taught a course in technical writing for Pentagon personnel. I also spent three years teaching courses in academic writing, public speaking, and literature to students at the University of Virginia and three years teaching writing at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I earned a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, Language, and Research from the University of Virginia. My GRE Verbal test score is in the 99th percentile. Why share a GRE score? Because it assesses ability in language usage, grammar, and punctuation. I know my stuff. I live in the grand and gorgeous state of Colorado, and in my free time I work on my novel, travel extensively in the US (47 states and counting), travel as much as possible around the world, and bike around Denver on one of my fabulous cruisers. Unless my bikes have been stolen. Theyre stolen a lot.
