Working with Vald was a pleasure; immediately he was honest and said that he hasn't had much experience with hair salons but confident he could do it. Throughout my experience with Sterling Rose Consulting, I found Vald to be easy to contact, very punctual on replying to via text, email, and or phone. On the other hand patience when I was delayed on time. Upon receiving my final draft I was able to go over and make any changes to "my business plan"that had Vald's own unique twist. Thanks you again, Sterling Rose Consulting Corp!

I had the best experience using Holland Reid for my retouching. I was looking for someone with a detailed eye and an understanding for what casting directors, producers and directors were looking for. I got my photos back quickly and communication was a breeze. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for great photos-- she is extremely affordable, especially for the quality of work she delivers.

        About

        I am a writer, copy editor, proofreader, and manuscript evaluator with experience working with independent writers. I have written book reviews, policy manuals, job and business descriptions, web content, articles, employee manuals, query letters, and book synopses. I have edited and proofread novels, web content, essays, and religious sermons. As a manuscript consultant, copy editor, and proofreader, I bring a fresh eye to a writer's work. In evaluating a piece, I search for strengths in character development, plot, and storytelling, and uncover errors in grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. I use what I learn about a writer's manuscript to assist the author in transforming his or her book into a tightly written piece.

        About

        In both writing and editing, I have a knack for crafting language that quickly reaches, touches and engages the target audience in ways designed to meet the client's goals. Through clear, dynamic writing and laser-sharp editing, I focus on helping clients get their message across with an impact. I am also an expert at assisting clients in finding and developing the brand and "voice" that makes them stand out. Writing and editing are about problem-solving. Each assignment is a puzzle, and I delight in finding the perfect combination and rhythm of language to get my clients where they want to be.

I genuinely and sincerely love writing and editing. I find myself rewriting even when not working on a project. I like to find, and mentally correct, errors in newspapers, magazines, menus, signs, etc., and all written materials.

        My work is a brand all its own. Nobody does what I do. I don't care if it's just an email-- if it's important enough to you to word it right and you just aren't sure what to say, you can come to me. If you need to finish a brochure and you're feeling stuck or uninspired, I have words for you. If you need to come up with a clever title, a convincing paragraph, or a precise summary of a status quo, you have a one-size-fits-all to go to. If words are what you need or you think you have too many, ask me what I think. I have a heart for detail, an eye for marketing, and a feel for art. Precision and beauty are great partners-- and they play well with others, too. Writing is what I love. Years of homework and laundry have been delayed or forgotten in the wake of my tendency to suddenly need to write things down. I can't remember a time when it wasn't as natural as breathing for me. You know those people that can't stop singing? Like, they are ALWAYS singing something, whether or not it may be obnoxious to everyone around them? I'm like that, except I'm less annoying because writing doesn't make any noise until someone reads it out loud. When I'm driving, when I'm at the gym, when I'm in the store... I'm composing and pondering and shelling out words for myself, often too quickly to document. Ideas for ads, theses for blog posts, song lyrics, and poetry occur to me in such a way that I must keep pen and paper handy wherever I am. But really, the best part of all of that comes when I have a finished product. A polished, precise work that I can both be proud of and present confidently to anybody without filtering out people that I think may not like it. What I love about writing is that I get to play many roles. When writing a school essay, I must adhere to the commandments of the grammar gods. When writing a blog entry, I get to take artistic liberties with my grammar for the sake of tone and presentation while maintaining a coherent respectability. When writing poetry, all rules can be forsaken should they be unwanted. When writing dialogue, I get to get inside someone else's head and write from the perspective of someone other than myself. Writing is simply my nature, so if I get to work in a way that is purely derived from my soul, that means the world. I believe that large-scale success depends on small-scale integrity. Creative liberty, however, is an essential tool for unforeseen and inevitable bumps in the road, so a balance between regimen and flexibility is important to keep in mind at all times. Happy plays well; this is why I write.

        I've been writing, editing, and proofreading professionally for more than 25 years. During that time, I've worked on just about every kind of project imaginable: print and online; short copy and long; consumer and business-to-business; lead-generation and direct response; fiction and non-fiction...well, the list goes on. I've even written a business book that Dearborn Trade published, and I'm currently in the process of writing several children's books. For me, words are more than just "business." They are part of who I am. And I'd be happy to bring that same level of passion and enthusiasm to your project.

        About

        I’ve been a freelance editor for almost five years. I’ve edited dozens of full manuscripts, combed the slush pile at literary agencies, and I’m a published author myself (Girl out of Water). I hold a BA in English and a BA in Advertising from the University of Georgia and an MFA in Creative Writing from the New School. My many roles in publishing have given me a unique eye to help shape and polish books so they stand out to both industry professionals and readers. I specialize in query letters and the YA genre, but I have experience with all age categories and genres from picture books to non-fiction to thrillers, and I edit works aimed for both traditional publishing and self-publishing. Whether you’re looking for thoughts on the overall plot of your novel or fine-tuned line editing, I’m confident I can help bring your work closer to its full potential! I love finding the heart of a manuscript and bringing its full potential to light!

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        How do you hire a good grant writer?

        Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

        • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
        • Strong writing skills.
        • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
        • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
        • Expertise in your target area.
        • Punctuality and good communication skills.

        How much does a grant writer cost?

        Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

        • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
        • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
        • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
        • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

        Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

        Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
