About this pro
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.Jun 15, 2017Verified
It's not easy to find a good editor. It's even harder to find an editor who is easy to work with and who shares your interest in, and enthusiasm for, the written work you're creating. John Herring helped me with my new novel, "Hitler's Time Machine," which is now available on Kindle and in print. Because of a change in my plans unrelated to John's work, I did not use his services as extensively as I'd originally planned to do. None of this detracted from the fact that John Herring is a likable, easygoing, knowledgable editor with professional skills that meet the highest standard. I plan to recommend John to others.Dec 21, 2014Verified
I was fortunate to find John. His editing techniques are great; he also provided suggestions and gave alternate paragraphs to choose from. He was very quick to respond and always worked around my schedule. I am looking forward to work with him again.Nov 15, 2014Verified
I needed someone to edit my dissertation, and John Herring was the right person for the job. His work was professional, and he delivered a very high-quality product on schedule. I highly recommend him if you want a good final product, especially if, like me, English is not your native language. Hiring an editor like John is a very worthwhile investment, if you care about the quality of the finished work.Jul 12, 2014Verified
