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!

Sara Crawford was very professional and she completed the editing of my manuscript in the time she contracted with me. There were no surprises, she even kept me updated throughout the process. I highly recommend her services, very affordable and worth the price.

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.

    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.

    Write One helped me with an editing/ghostwriting project as well as the publishing of my book. I found the experience to be invaluable and well worth the money. The owner said her aim was to educate new authors on the publishing process and that's exactly what she did. Now I'm preparing to release my book in the coming weeks and I'm so excited.

    Until Jesse Adams created a resume for me, I did not have a resume on hand to market myself again in the job market. I asked him to put together a resume for me within a time manner and he did just that! Even though it took me several days to gather info for him, my final draft was still completed within the time specified. He stayed in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, and always remained open to any feedback or changes from me. I will definitely refer him to friends and family! Again thanks Jesse! Eileen Shoemake

          Prose and poetry for any occasion. Editing of essays, papers, creative writing of various genres and styles. I have a good eye for detail and building stories using the right elements and techniques to enhance the content.

          About

          I prepare copy by editing and transcribing books, literature, etc. to be sent to publishers. I re-write resumes and write official letters to resolve issues between customers and service providers where there might be some type of dispute that can be resolved without litigation. I love writing and can handle most any project as long as it does not require legal documentation. I consider that I am very good at managing projects from inception to completion as I have 30 plus years experience in the communications industry managing projects and outside engineering. I believe that my pricing would be more than comparable to anyone in today's market. My goal is to always have a satisfied customer and make a little extra money for fun things during my retirement.

          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!

          About

          I fell in love with reading at a very young age which, naturally, led to a fondness for writing. It occurred to me in high school that a person may have great ideas yet not be the best at getting it all down correctly. Luckily, there are people such as myself who are more than happy to step in and help iron out any wrinkles grammar and punctuation may create.

          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.
