Kim helped me with pre-press design work on a children's book reprint and was very patient, interactive, friendly, had good feedback, and "made things work, whatever it was I wanted updated or changed, and was willing to let me sit with her to make the changes, which was essential for this type of project. I will definitely be a repeat client!
Five words: "Dont Pass Up On Her" You will regret every minute of it. She was and is the picture of what class looks like: absolutely worth every penny. She performed our wedding on 09/09/18 at the Clearwater Grand Hyatt 16th Floor Sky Terrace and made us cry! She takes your special day like its her own wedding! Choosing her was one of our best and easiest decisions through out my wife & I entire 9-month journey before our huge day. Book early, she will not be available if you hesitate and delay in your decision making. Thank you for everything Lynett from the bottom of our hearts!!! So much love 😘
Work was professional, charming and thorough. She knows children's book publishing very well and patiently answered numerous questions posed. Additionally, she worked diligently to meet a "tight" deadline at a reasonable cost. We are pleased with her work.
In her capacity as Arts and Entertainment Editor for Creative Loafing, Julie supervised the coverage of our first annual SunLIt Festival in St Petersburg. Julie not only quickly grasped the possibilities for articles on this new and original event but also found creative ways to present it. She collaborated with the photographer and the actors during our photo shoot to produce a variety of choices for illustrating the article. She conducted thorough research, and her resulting story not only fully highlighted this fledgling literary effort but also put it into the context of the region's ongoing attention to letters. Julie is a fine and talented writer and editor.
My name is Nelson Tobin and I have been in the medical equipment business for over 25 years. I have met and worked with Allen from KRB Media at least 10 years give or take. Anyway, lets just say I am not computer literate at all. That said, Allen has the ability to get on my level and make me understand what we need for our company both in hardware, software (website design) and most exciting is this new optimization (which is very new to my company and especially me) that he and his firm are experts in. Not only does KRB and Allen jump threw hoops to help my business grow while always making sure we are protected from hacking and bugs etc, but also when business was down for us and or I had some personal setbacks with a divorce, he ran just as fast to help us and treated both me and my company no differently than when we were on top of the world. The best thing about Allen is that he will stand up to you, and not sell you something that is not needed and tells you why. Lastly, and this may sound corny, but not only is he a entrical part of our company, and knows every ones name, but has become a true friend to me as well. I am sorry for the book!!! Respectfully Nelson Tobin
Merry was incredible! She was fast, comprehensive and extremely helpful in editing my book. She is very fair with her prices, which was great because I don't have much to shell out. Merry also was more than happy to give me a few helpful tips as I am a new writer. I obviously wholeheartedly recommend her.
David edited a book, middle grade fiction, for me. He He was professional as well as warm and friendly. I had no trouble understanding his suggestions and following them. I would not hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to others.
iFlow Creative provided great proofreading feedback on my book. Jonathan had insightful questions and observations to improve both my writing and my book.
I self published a scifi novel and wanted a polished book that I could be proud of. Russil worked with me closely to ensure that my vision for final version would be realized. I really enjoyed working with Russil from beginning to end. He is very insightful and had excellent ideas. He also found lots of higher level improvements and some inconsistencies which we were able to work out. He is a true partner in the creation process and he CARES!! I've hired him to work on several other books since and always enjoyed our partnership.
Patricia Riesenkampff has been a language teacher for our children and has done a great job. Furthermore, she translated parts of a book volume form German into English and has always been dedicated to her job though it was not easy and of academic quality.
Samantha E. wrote an article about me and my debut novel for the Osprey Observer, a local newspaper. We met at Starbucks and her poise and personable demeanor quickly set a comfortable tone. The interview turned into a conversation that lasted nearly two hours. From that good-natured discussion she gleaned enough info about me and the book to write a wonderful article.
Ellen Haas has edited two of my novels. The novels were Unholy Pursuit, 99,545 words, and Ouroboros: Terror in Thibodaux, 76,870 words. I have nothing but the utmost admiration for her expertise. She is meticulous, with an uncanny eye for rearranging sentences so they will give the reader more awareness of what the author wants to convey. Her knowledge of grammar is second to none, and she is a pit bull when it comes to punctuation. She never allows a comma to thrive in a sentence when a period or a semi-colon would work better. I gladly, and wholeheartedly, recommend Ellen Haas to anyone who is in need of an editor for their books. Sincerely, Jerry Pat Bolton
I have worked with Erik on several film and video projects. Erik is very passionate about the work he does. He is a perfectionist when it comes to the writing on a project and will work to ensure a script is as tight as possible. As a director he runs a very efficient set and works well with actors to get their performances down pat. As an editor, Erik can produce a cut of a film very quickly and then work collaboratively with the production team to produce a quality finished product.
Mandy's turnaround time is phenomenal! She is accurate and so pleasant to work with - I highly recommend her as an editor.

She explains each suggested change in detail; red-line edits full-length manuscripts with up-front fees beginning at $2 per page; and also prepares professional book proposals and writes press releases and jacket copy that can draw buyers' eyes to your book.

I love working with writers, especially when I see that they are proud of what they have accomplished. It is also gratifying to me to work with words and hone them into tight, readable passages.
I review things until I happy with them. I tend to have four reviews of something to make sure I am happy to put my name on it. Well, I am a recovering perfectionist, but I love being able to harness that constructively, so I do it through my work.
