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.

Last year I started writing my first book called 'Chances are its Murder,. Not really sure what was my next step was after completion I was fortunate enough to contact Merry. It was one of the best decisions I have made. She helped me with everything, Her knowledge and delightful personality made working with her a pleasure. Words cannot express the gratitude I have towards her. I tell everyone who ask about the book I wrote that it would not have been possible without a great editor.And thats what Merry is. She's the best.

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.

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.

    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.

    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

    Sharon Tubbs of Move Forward Communications is the editor of a second book I am publishing. She has proven to be an outstanding editor who is a great communicator, proficient in writing, thorough in her review of my material, and timely in her responses to my questions. When she gives you a date and time to finish her editing, she does not miss that deadline! 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.

    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.

    About

    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.

    About

    Penny Fletcher is a freelance writer with an extensive background in newspapers, magazines, web writing and books. Her proven creativity as a fiction writer and accuracy as a photojournalist and news reporter are evidenced by the many testimonials and awards on her website, Linked-In, and the sites for which she currently writes. 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. Now working exclusively with authors in every genre, she can help in any phase of your project from basic editing to manuscript development, scene setting, point-of-view, and writing natural dialogue. 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. She never charges authors for edits by the hour because authors - especially new ones - need to know exactly what they are spending before they begin a project and how much they must budget for it. Custom quotes for all services are done by contract before the work begins.
