Lauren has edited for me before and I'll keep her forever. No one I've ever worked has been as intelligent, or as professional and caring. I have no complaints at all. She is direct in her communication and doesn't sugar coat a thing, but is thoughtful and kind when editing, opting for constructive criticism rather than berating. She is a good as she looks. She's read everything I've written, both published and not, and has incredible insight into where I want to go and how to help me get there. I just can't say enough. She handles my uploads to Amazon and offers invaluable advice on things like cover design and interior concept. Be smart, pick this young woman to help you on your publishing/editing journey. She is that good.

    Judy edited my lengthy and complicated dissertation with no problems. I can sum up her excellent work as being "on task, on time, and on budget." I have no reservations recommending her to others.

    I was lucky enough to meet Eric through a colleague and boy, am I glad I did! Not only has he helped me write copy for my work publications, but has edited my personal manuscripts, and acted as tutored for my children from high school into college. His insights have certainly made me a better writer. Also, Eric has stepped in more than once to carry on writing projects when I was unable to; while maintaining the voice and tone of the piece seamlessly. Plus, his sense of humor and unique ability to succinctly capture the essence of an idea or fleeting moment in time is truly an amazing talent to behold. 5 stars plus five more stars, I say!
