Our team hired mike after an impressive interview, and after thorough review of his outstanding work portfolio. During his time with us, his dependability, consistency and impeccable attention to detail in conjunction with the ability to manage a team of other freelance writers allowed him to progress from a freelance writer to Editor In Chief. He also held the title of Team Manager, and his team consistently achieved and exceeded weekly and monthly goals. As Mike's project was concluded, our administrative staff have saved his contact information because he will surely be contacted when his expertise is required in the future. It is without any hesitation that I recommend this outstanding individual.
My sincerest gratitude to Tammy for enriching me by guiding me to find my deepest talents; for inspiring me by quoting insights on how to be a great writer from a variety of astute sources; for encouraging me with her kindness and understanding of the big picture and my personal ones. If there was a letter grade better than an A++, I would give her that esteem.
Mike is an excellent editor. He is incredibly thorough and attentive, and is very skilled at explaining why something isn't working. I would highly recommend his editing services.
I actually used the editorial & proofing service for a huge business launching and the services were excellent and staff very polite considering the errors and last minute request... I will definitely use the services again recommend all procrastinators...
Deb is quick, accurate and lovely to work with. Plus! She's a good editor. I highly recommend her.
Heidi is amazing she is professional, easy to talk to and most of all, she transformed my book into a more interesting and readable format. Her input gave me the confidence to put my story out into the world. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs an editor. She understands what the writers challenges are she gets it. Shes great!
Jessica is an incredibly skilled editor. In about 2 hours she was able to make more sense of my son's 3-page autobiography for his medical school application. Throughout the process she communicated frequently before making changes. Because of the quality of her work, I am using her to edit his personal statement and entries also. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone who needs editing services.
Diane Spivak was paid to editor a book she expressed the length of time it would take and she worked within that time span. Although this is my first book I feel that she did a great job and I am well please with her and her work. Her communication skills really got my attention and I would recommend her to anyone.
Suzanne was the editor of my book, The Gyne's Guide for College Women (TheGynesGuide.com) and she did a fantastic job! I recommend her highly!
Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!
Josh is a wonderful videographer. He has a creative way of telling your story that is warm and thoughtful. His keen and perceptive attention to capture your essence will leave your audience with a great first impression of you.
Working with Kay was fantastic! Her feedback was thoughtful and thorough! She is a fantastic writer which was definitely reflected in her proposed edits. Would definitely recommend!
