Julie has been my editor for a little over a year, and is great to work with. Very enthusiastic and dedicated to her work, always timely and a good communicator.
Angus is a highly proficient and responsive editor. I had a great time working with him. My novel was based in South Asia and surprisingly Angus was very comfortable handling a subject like that. I highly recommend him as an editor.
I spent hours with my grandmother compiling her heritage recipes from the 1960's and what she remembered of her mother's recipes from the 1940's. I wanted to preserve my family's food traditions for my own children. The recipes we were selecting reminded Nonna of stories from her teenage years which she told me in detail as we poured through ingredients. When our project was complete I realized that I had more than recipes, I had an oral history of our family and the makings of a book. I hired Merry to give my book a professional look. I was amazed at the layout she produced for me. The book looks as beautiful as anything you'd find in the cooking section at Barnes and Noble. Merry trimmed my "wordy" manuscript into a work that was wonderfully concise and descriptive. She combined the stories and recipes in a flow that was beyond anything I would have thought of. When it was done my family and the community loved it. Nonna was even asked to do a segment on our local morning TV. I was hoping the experience of working with an editor wouldn't make me feel like I was in sixth grade again getting graded on my mistakes. It wasn't like that at all. Merry made me feel proud of my effort to accomplish a manuscript. She said everyone says they have a book to write but few sit down to do it. Merry definitely knows how to dot her i's and cross her t's among her many other editorial tricks. Thanks to Merry I did it! I published my book!
Mike is not only one of the most sincere and genuine colleagues that I've ever had, he's a terrific writer and editor. Mike contributed mightily to researching, drafting and editing content for a variety of uses at the 2012 Republican National Convention. Mike also served as the first dedicated convention-team blogger in history. In this capacity, he adroitly managed an editorial calendar and a rigorous approval process that provided the executive leadership team with great confidence in the integrity of the content and important messaging. Please feel to contact me anytime for a full-endorsement of Mike's work. He's a pleasure to work with.
My name is Preston Copeland. Russil Tamsen has done a wonderful job at editing my middle grade novel "Saleena Sanchez & The Cursed Crown" and my short story "The Dock The Witch & The Schmuck." Russil is wonderful at helping the author to understand and develop their vision, while simultaneously helping to ensure that syntax is set precisely at a professional level. Russil is easy to work with, but firm in his edits, which from my experience have helped to elevate my fiction to another level. Even though he's not really a good tennis player, I never hold that against him. Instead, what he lacks in athletic ability, he makes up being a wonderful person and editor.
As Executive Director of Jijnyasa Foundation which was engaged in setting up a Web site www. ancientindianwisdom, a portrayal of eastern Knowledge system, we were most impressed by Devaanna's remarkable abilities of editing. She did an extraordinary job for us, with speed, efficiency, editing knowledge and above all professional output respecting deadlines.
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.
Mike did an excellent editing job! He polished up a 300 page, 75,000 word yarn into an actual novel. He'll be on top of my list of editors that I plan to work with on future projects.
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
Mandy's turnaround time is phenomenal! She is accurate and so pleasant to work with - I highly recommend her as an editor.

I have other books to write, and I definitely plan to use Move Forward Communications to edit for me in the future. Sharon has gone far above and beyond my expectations.

Her books are proudly represented by agent Terrie Wolf, a.k.a Literary LLC, and she currently writes for The Observer News and Riverview Current, both of which have print and online editions. As a writer, editor and Bureau Chief, her background includes Amazon Books, Media General Communications, Inc., Sunbelt Newspapers and The Tampa Tribune.

I do much more than read once through a manuscript: I refine your work with several readings, until it is not only error free, but clear, concise, with a good flow and pace, so your reader will keep turning the pages. I use Track Changes in Word, so you can see the editing I've done and can decide to accept or reject each edit individually. You can make changes in the edited manuscript, highlight them, and send the manuscript back to me for a final review of the changes. Many editing services will not do this.
