Verified review

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.

Lee Brown is fast, funny, intuitive and able to establish a rapport in seconds. His work is intelligent, insightful, innovative and a dozen other words that start with "in" - Of all the creatives with whom I've had the opportunity to work — as an actor, writer, producer, director and videographer, Lee Brown is the one who writes the best work for me in my "voice," seemingly effortlessly, (—although he burns the midnight oil to make it perfect.) When working with Lee, our discussions quickly reach a place of interactive "short-hand" when dealing with ideas and concepts. Lee makes the collaborative process a true joy. Work should always be this much fun. It is RARELY this fun. I'm only sorry that we're on opposite coasts or we'd be working together on a much more regular basis. Whether it's film, television, documentary, instructive or interactive video, an essay, a novel, or a fast short story or article; the creative writing world needs more from R. Lee Brown!

    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.

      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.

        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.

        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.

        Experienced professional writer and editor available for tutoring, training, punch-up, proofreading, or any number of editorial services. I have been a reporter and editor for over 10 years and have extensive experience with the written word. Do you want to improve your style? Your flow? Your word choice? Look no further.

Not only do I offer cover-to-cover proofreading, but I can provide detailed notes and suggestions that are sure to help your words sparkle. Do you have recurring newsletters or email blasts that you want to make sure read well and look clean but don't want to take on a full-time, in-house writer or editor? Consider me your "hired gun" to get in, get the job done, and be on my way.

        About

        In an effort to utilize my skills/education/experience as a volunteer, I am offering free paper editing to high school and/or college students. I have an undergraduate college degree in English/Finance, a Law degree, and much experience with writing/proof reading/editing papers. While attending undergraduate school, I was involved with the writing center and assisted many students with their classroom writing requirements. During law school, I provided the same assistance to other law students as an active member of the law school's legal writing center. I believe volunteering is a great opportunity to give back to my community. That being said, this is a unique opportunity for me to give back but do so while I am at home. Please include a deadline for when you need the draft returned. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to help out. Kelly
