Verified review

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.

Angus is a great writer. I have known him for several years. We wrote a book together, and I learned from him not only how to put ideas together, organize thoughts, translate complex ideas into understandable ones, put on the shoes of potential readers, but also to integrate all of theses critical issues in order to produce effective texts that will attract large communities of readers. His books are classics, and with Angus´ help your books can be classics as well.

Merry was incredible! She was fast, comprehensive and extremely helpful in editing my book. She is very fair with her prices, which was great because I don't have much to shell out. Merry also was more than happy to give me a few helpful tips as I am a new writer. I obviously wholeheartedly recommend her.

I self published a scifi novel and wanted a polished book that I could be proud of. Russil worked with me closely to ensure that my vision for final version would be realized. I really enjoyed working with Russil from beginning to end. He is very insightful and had excellent ideas. He also found lots of higher level improvements and some inconsistencies which we were able to work out. He is a true partner in the creation process and he CARES!! I've hired him to work on several other books since and always enjoyed our partnership.

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

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.

Verified review

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.

Samantha E. wrote an article about me and my debut novel for the Osprey Observer, a local newspaper. We met at Starbucks and her poise and personable demeanor quickly set a comfortable tone. The interview turned into a conversation that lasted nearly two hours. From that good-natured discussion she gleaned enough info about me and the book to write a wonderful article.

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.
