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.

Julie Garisto, as Arts Editor for Creative Loafing in Tampa Bay, FL, has done an incredible job at turning the rambling musings of my artist statements and press releases into event listings and articles that generate both excitement for and insight into my work. Further, her guidance at Creative Loafing leaves a reader with the impression that Tampa Bay is a vital cultural hub. Julie Garisto, both as a person and because of her writing and editing skills, is an indispensible member of the Tampa Bay community.

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.

Working with Mr. Reynolds was so easy. He has an eye of an eagle when it comes to proofreading. He helped me editing my PhD dissertation and I truly appreciate his help. The revision process was done in a timely manner and I will certainly refer my colleagues to Mr. Reynolds. Thank you!

Angus is a highly proficient and responsive editor. I had a great time working with him. My novel was based in South Asia and surprisingly Angus was very comfortable handling a subject like that. I highly recommend him as an editor.

I spent hours with my grandmother compiling her heritage recipes from the 1960's and what she remembered of her mother's recipes from the 1940's. I wanted to preserve my family's food traditions for my own children. The recipes we were selecting reminded Nonna of stories from her teenage years which she told me in detail as we poured through ingredients. When our project was complete I realized that I had more than recipes, I had an oral history of our family and the makings of a book. I hired Merry to give my book a professional look. I was amazed at the layout she produced for me. The book looks as beautiful as anything you'd find in the cooking section at Barnes and Noble. Merry trimmed my "wordy" manuscript into a work that was wonderfully concise and descriptive. She combined the stories and recipes in a flow that was beyond anything I would have thought of. When it was done my family and the community loved it. Nonna was even asked to do a segment on our local morning TV. I was hoping the experience of working with an editor wouldn't make me feel like I was in sixth grade again getting graded on my mistakes. It wasn't like that at all. Merry made me feel proud of my effort to accomplish a manuscript. She said everyone says they have a book to write but few sit down to do it. Merry definitely knows how to dot her i's and cross her t's among her many other editorial tricks. Thanks to Merry I did it! I published my book!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Visionary wordsmith that will transform your amazing story into a best seller. Mr. Tamsen will present ideas to you, discuss options and question the direction of the book. He stays constantly in touch and informs you of the progress. Work is usually sent back to you for review after one half has been edited for your thoughts. Mr. Tamsen will empower your story with emotional voice and his mastery with tone allows characters to come to life.

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.

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.

Mandy's turnaround time is phenomenal! She is accurate and so pleasant to work with - I highly recommend her as an editor.

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

I am an experienced editor with a proven record of excellence. I am happy to work with serious writers to bring their projects to a successful conclusion. As a free-lance contractor I am able to devote time to any given project without outside constraints. I love people and words and do my best to marry the two in a rewarding union.
