I've written a few books and have worked with many editors over the years. I needed assistance on two novels that were edited but needed proofreading. Brittany went above and beyond on the proofreading, with a quick turnaround time. Her comments and corrections went deeper than simple proofreading and helped me understand the corrections and become a better writer. My manuscript was completely polished and publication-ready when she was finished. I'm looking forward to working with Brittany on my next book for both editing and proofreading. I HIGHLY recommend her for all of your editing needs, as she is exceptionally skilled and has a firm understand of grammar and the written word! You won't be disappointed with her work!

This is my first venture into self publishing, a romantic novel to be exact. From the onset Brittany made the editing process easy. From explaining her methods to helping plot a course on how to make this the best possible story, she was very thoughtful in her help and thorough in her work. So this is my wordy way of saying that I fully recommend Brittany should you need an intelligent and efficient editor.

Mrs. Donna did a wonderful job of updating an existing resume I had. She was very quick to answer her email after my initial inquiry. From there our interactions only got easier. She listened to what job I was expecting to land and tailored my resume to reflect that. After two years without any hits I landed an interview a few weeks later using my new resume. I'm now working for that company.  Highly recommend.

I recently worked with Ingrid. She helped edit a novel I plan on publishing. When I first reached out to her, I got a quick response. That did not stop throughout the process. If I had questions, she responded quickly. Also, she kept me updated on where she was in the story. The editing was done way ahead of schedule, which leaves me plenty of time to review the notes. I have tried several editors and Ingrid has given me the best experience by far. I highly recommend her for your editing needs.

She became and Editor. She edited my book. This was the very first writing that I had ever done for publishing. Without her critique and her sitting with me and explaining the importance of my being myself and making sure that I wrote from the point of what I declared my book would be. She shared with me how important of writing down that people would know you from your writing. She met with me in my office. Never was Mrs. Mansfield in a hurry How Long Did It Take: It took 2 weeks and 3 days. What impressed me most of all was Mrs. Mansfield’s’ ability to pull out of me that what would had been necessary to enhance my book. Secondly a willing to listen to me read my book. My book and me as a new writer was very important to her. It was not just a job but care and concern. Some of the time spent in my office, especially the length of time just speaking to me about becoming a writer. Many times was over and beyond what I believe many other persons would have done. Her critiques and the work that she performed was over and beyond helping a new writer. The question is what could have been better: Exactly mothing!! What went wrong? If anything? Nothing. What could Pauline Mansfield do better in the future? Continue to share her love and concern for the people in which she helps. Please note: My use of the name YaQar YaQar is because I have 1 name which is legally "YaQar"

I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Pauline over the last few months and she has been a pure inspiration. From the beginning she has exuded positivity and has been extremely easy to work and communicate with. I started a project several years ago and up until meeting Pauline, the progress had stopped. I had gathered a lot of information and done a rough draft but there was no direction. Pauline came along and gave me direction and also reignited my passion for what I set out to do. I am striving to tell the story of my ancestor and now that Pauline has come into my life, she has helped to cohesively piece the puzzle together. She helped to edit my existing story and then she also added additional content. Pauline was timely in providing these edits and she has done an excellent job. I love the way the story has turned out thus far. She is truly a gifted writer and makes it easy to understand the process of drafting, editing and completion. And she pours her heart into the job as if it were her own. I highly recommend Pauline’s creative services.

Pauline was highly recommended to edit my book of poetry that I had just finished. My experience with Pauline was excellent from start to finish. What impressed me the most, was the honest feedback, support, tips, encouragement, and constant communication. Pauline kept me informed every step of the way and finished just as she promised, right on time. I highly recommend Pauline because I got so much more than I can put into words.

Salina has helped me out with a couple of things. When I was looking for a job and trying to create a professional resume, Mrs. Jackson guided me in a direction of success. She sent me pointers on what to do and what not to do when building a resume and it took her less than 2 hours to send me the information I needed. I also have a small photography business and I needed her assistance with creating a pricing sheet for my customers and I. As a freelance photographer, it is hard to get the word out about what you do so I sent her an email of what I charge by the hour and for special events. Three hours later she came up with a full pricing sheet including photo packages and a stylized design for the company! She is very professional, swift, and detail oriented and I appreciate her services!

Salina is a great writer and editor. I own a web development company and we have used Salina's services several times to write and edit content for our clients. She has also helped with our blog and press releases for various products and promotions. Salina has been very efficient for our business. Her fast turnaround time and ability to return excellent content with limited direction from us makes her our go to person every time.

I wrote my very first book and was looking for an editor and was recommended to Jasmine. She really took the time to get to know me, my background, and ask questions about the book. This allowed her to understand my word style and what message I wanted to convey. She was very prompt and thorough. If you are looking for a great editor I would recommend Jasmine to trust with your project.

From the initial connection Jasmine was engaged and helpful. As a new author, I didn't know much about the editing process. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and turn around time are what made my experience using her expertise a pleasurable one. I would use her for future projects!

Anyone can print a document. Heck, you can print most materials at home. But Budget Printing takes the time to ensure what you want printed is editorially correct. I have an editor in my office, but they didn't catch some of the small errors that Gail spotted in my massive 100 page directory. Her ability to review and seek clarification back from her customers can be the difference in a product you are proud of, or one that could embarrass you. She doesn't have to take the extra time to review your work; it's just what she does. Gail and John aren't running a print shop; they are editors and publishers of quality printed media.

Gail is excellent. My workbook had hidden pages and odd sequencing from a previous vendor -- Gail took that disaster and created a masterpiece. Despite the unexpected additional work, she held her price to the provided quote. I highly recommend her to others seeking top-notch performance.

Charles Justus Garard, Jr. PhD I have known Dr. Garard for approximately 28 years and worked with him as a colleague, teaching at the college level from 1989 until 2003. During my association with Dr. Garard, I have observed his expertise not only in teaching and mentoring but also in his writing skills. He was exceptional at proofreading several of my documents and manuscripts, as well as offering other colleagues writing and literary assistance. In addition to his regular college teaching duties, he taught English as a second language on weekends to students in several minority communities in Atlanta. He traveled to China as a professor in English language, literature, and writing, where he served for seven (7) years. Dr. Garard has demonstrated an outstanding talent with the English language and is an invaluable asset to both writers and editors. Please feel free to contact me if I can offer further insight into Dr. Garard’s gifted abilities. Donald W. Blair 404-375-1435

Steve Ward is a wonderful editor. He reviews each page of work with a keen eye and tells you what works and what doesn't work. He tells you when to heighten the conflict if there's been an over-flux of backstory or narrative. He's very easy to work with and I couldn't be happier with how my debut novel 'Alecner' turned out!

Steve did an excellent job with my novella. He kept my voice and did what an edit/proofreader is suppose to do, edit and proof to where now those who read my story tell me rave reviews. I just wish more would write review. :-)

Clear Communication is important in relaying information to others. The best ideas are meaningless if your audience cannot understand them, or worse, give up before you can fully explain it to them. This is where I come in! -webpage proofreading: including spelling, grammar, and punctuation. -editing foreign web copy in English to remove awkward phrasing. -limited HTML editing. Ask yourself this. Why should your audience listen to your smart idea if the message comes across as uneducated? Many websites contain copy errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation because they are quickly created and posted without being proofread first. Foreign websites are often mistranslated, making for awkward reading. I help to rephrase awkward sentences, making them easy to understand. Because most people are not web developers, syntax errors often pop up on your web pages, distracting your audience from your true message. I can help to resolve these issues, insuring your web pages display only what you want it to.
