As a first time writer, I learned a lot from Deborah's edits. She is a wonderful editor. The edits were concise and the table of contents she provided with feedback and lessons were exactly what I needed. I'd recommend her to anyone who needs help perfecting their manuscript for publishers. She's encouraging, honest and professional. Definitely hire Deborah is you are looking for a thorough & trustworthy editor.

My manuscript was long and needed to be edited within 3 - 4 days. Very short time for such a long writing! Given the limited time, one may question the quality of final product. On contrary, my manuscript looked simply great thanks to John's interventions. I was absolutely happy. John did a very neat, fast and clean job; he expanded the vocabulary by using proper words or substituting them for synonyms, rearranging words, clarifying sentences when needed, and keeping consistency. His suggestions regarding the structure and the meaning of some sentences, or their completeness were very helpful, clarifying and explanatory. For example, in some cases, he would say: "this sentence is missing something." Then I searched and figure out what was missing, or when the thought was incomplete. Consistency: Only after John’s editing I figured out that I failed to keep consistency in using names, abbreviations and subheadings. In short, he noticed something that I wasn’t able to do so due to the lengthy of my paper and tiredness. Only after I worked on those suggestions, I came to realize that the job was (finally) done. Overall, John was responsive, cooperative and fast, providing a product on the due time, and as required. He was my first pick when I was still reading five other editors’ charts and contacting some of them, simply because he provided comprehensive information, his resume showing his credentials, experience and professionalism, and good reviews. The price was even modest. Looking forward to work with him again in my future projects.

Having finished my novel above my expectations, Darina continues to assist me with getting my story published. At every turn she has been professional and open to my input. She truly understands what it means to work TOGETHER and bring a jumbled story to life. She has been honest and on time throughout this project, and this is the reason why she will be the ghostwriter on my next novel as well!!!

During our publishing association over many years, Gloria Goss' excellent copy and editing skill have enhanced every project to which she has been assigned. Gloria has worked for me on books that encompass a wide range of specialities, particularly those with complex design, editorial, illustrative requirements, and a strict deadline schedule. Her excellent grasp of the responsibilities of a copy editor with attention to style, grammar, content, queries to the author, and mark up of the manuscript for the printer, would make Gloria an outstanding asset to you. Sincerely, Kathleen McCullough.

Donald MacLaren has been very helpful to me as I set out to write a couple of novels about Africa and America. He helped me as a ghostwriter a few years ago with my first novel which about my home country of Sierra Leone entitled "The Diamonds." I used Mr. MacLaren again as a ghostwriter and editor to revise and edit another novel entitled "Journey to Dreamland." Also, he helped me to revise and edit another novel entitled "Kigba’s Fate." Over the years, I found Mr. MacLaren very helpful and his work has always been very professional. He has always been very fair to me with his prices and his suggestions. Mr. MacLaren’s Ph.D. book editor has also provided very expertise suggestions on these three novels. I would recommend Mr. MacLaren as a ghostwriter and editor. In fact, I did acknowledge Mr. MacLaren in the Acknowledgments of the three novels that I have listed

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. As a part-time writer myself I know it can be hard to take edits. When someone captures a new voice so quickly and provides meaningful suggestions addressing both language choice and content, it makes it easy. Chapters are edited and turned around quickly so you feel you have an ally working alongside you and no time is wasted. A pleasure to work with, a true professional with so much valuable experience you feel confident about getting the results you want.

About

I am an experienced proofreader and editor! Beginning my career, I was a copywriter, copychief and later an editor for two major catalogs, Lane Bryant and Spiegel. I have written press releases, and product presentations for fashion, food and toys. Proofreading was always an important aspect of all these jobs and proofreading is what I have concentrated on in the last few years. I have completed many freelance assignments at First Investor's Life Insurance in New York City, proofreading their insurance prospectuses, brochures and various offerings before moving to Fort Lauderdale. I have also done some legal proofreading. Attention to detail, organizing and checking facts are two of my greatest strengths.
