While I was writing my book, she was on hand to proof read in parts submitted to her. When she said that she was available, she really was available.

Fran helps me with copyediting and proofreading on a regular basis. I can always count on her to do a thorough job. She is also very proactive about asking questions and I trust her to work directly with my own clients. If you need a solid editor or proofreader, I highly recommend Fran.

I sent Linda my book manuscript and was amazed to see how many grammatical errors I had made while writing the book. She corrected my slang, out of date jargons, and made suggestions to correct or relocate paragraphs to other chapters. She also advised me about statements that should be altered to avoid legal action from individuals or establishments named within the chapters. My manuscript went from being an unorganized, choppy, collection of events, characters, and facts into a smooth flowing, easy to read document. The book is currently being evaluated by the editors of a major publisher which makes me very grateful to Linda and her grasp of the English language and ability to edit so perfectly.

Verified review

I hired Christie to transform my elderly father's blog posts into a memoir and she did an outstanding job. She had a deft touch, superb copy-editing skills and the insight and intuition needed to keep my father's voice while smoothing out the rough spots. She also designed the book cover, found a publisher and got it done in time for my father's 85th birthday, when we had a launch party for "Skydiving into Medical School and Other Adventures," and we made a dying man extremely happy. The book would have been only an old man's dream if not for Christie.

We used Wendy for copy-editing and voice-over work. Her quick response time, professionalism and expertise were exactly what we needed. As a small, start-up, we needed someone to guide us and deliver quick results. Wendy did just that! She was able to work with tight deadlines and provide constructive criticism for us to improve our marketing materials and strategy.

Sherry Thompson helped considerably with my application process to law school. With her expertise in the graduate school application process, she was able to help me craft an individualized timeline, and gave excellent feedback on my application materials. I was lucky to find an outstanding consulting group in Forward Motion 411, and highly recommend it to others who are looking for help with post-secondary educational admissions consulting.

To the people who know me I am the best editor available who never actually majored at college in English. This allows people to get a rather high quality result for less, as I do currently charge lower fees due to suffered brain damage that causes memory issues and bad insomnia.
