Stephanie was very good at identifying specific opportunities for condensing/editing my material, as well as overall proofreading. She has an opportunity to extend her value once she gets more into the production side of things, particularly eBook formatting.

When I approached Elicia Stoll to edit my series Love Out Of Lust, I was amazed how she was able to relate with what I wrote. Her editing skills, kept me on my toes, as well as her suggestions to the manuscripts. She has edited all four of my books, and I can’t wait to finish more of my stories to send over to her. She is an awesome editor worth appreciating. - Ray Sostre Author

Megan stuck with me to the end on this resume writing project. She made every change that I asked for and her communication was timely. I would hire her again!
