Richard is the most professional, responsive, and caring editor you'll find: I highly recommend him! His editorial wisdom and precision are unmatched (as a non English native speaker working in US and UK academic contexts, I have tried several editors during the past 5 years so my evaluation of Richard's performance builds on a rich sample). Richard masterfully edited my work (from cover letters to research articles) taking care of grammar, style, and impact. He also paid attention to my comunicative goals and to the "tone of voice" I wanted my texts to have. The high quality of Richard's editorial work is matched by a calm attitude and good energies in his relationship with his clients. I met Richard at a very stressful time in my life, when I was applying for academic jobs and building up my CV with submissions to peer-reviewed journals. I know from experience that Richard is the professional and reliable editor you want to have for your important challenges. One of the last projects Richard worked on for me was the application for a permanent lecturer position at a prestigious university. My application materials were praised by the committee. I got the job and I am very grateful to Richard for his help with this great result!

Elicia Stoll is an amazing proof reader an editor. With an outstanding professionalism she has been able to exquisitely edit all three of my award-winning novels in The Demon Side Series. I truly believe without Elicia's stellar editing abilities, quick turn-around, and educate insightfulness, I never would have become a published author. I highly recommend Elicia Stoll for all of your proofreading and editing needs!

Cindy was my editor for my first self-published book, "Ride On!" and she has helped me tremendously on making my story come alive. Since I am not a writer by trade, she worked with me on skills I needed to improve, offered many suggestions, and mostly spent time with me. I highly recommend her for your writing and editing purposes.

Rick Bolner Austin, TX 78749 May 21, 2010 To Whom It May Concern: I have had the pleasure of knowing Dawn Lenz for the past five years. On many occasions she reviewed my fictional work and always offered keen insights and an attention to detail that I seldom received from others, including published novelists. Perhaps most helpful to me was her understanding of my work and what I wanted to achieve. With specific examples and suggestions, she told me how my work would—or wouldn’t—succeed. Dawn never hijacked my work or its intended outcome. In addition to her comprehension of fiction, her application of formatting, grammar, and punctuation was exceptional. I recently read her novel Winged Victory. In it, she demonstrates her understanding of the far-reaching requirements of fiction. The plot had great narrative energy; her plot-point spins were perfectly timed, and she did a superb job of getting her protagonist into tough situations throughout the story. I found the predicaments believable, and the specifics with which she rendered them, convincing. Also, the story is replete with entertaining incidents. Her use of sensual details, which are essential to good fiction writing, added to the dramatic effect. I never gave pause to her dialogue. It was artfully set up through supporting narrative to give its delivery a pop and rhythm. Also, she skillfully used dialogue tags—character’s actions used in lieu of "he said, she said" locutions—which is an earmark of a serious pro. Her setting of ancient Greece was compelling and accessible for me as a reader who knows little of that milieu. The physical descriptions, with other details, ratcheted up her verisimilitude and the overall power of the story. The narrative energy, along with its tightness, and professional presentation made me feel very comfortable and confident that the author would deliver. I wasn’t disappointed. Obviously, if she knows how to achieve this in her own work, certainly it’s fair to expect her to share these insights and talents with you. Whether you’re writing a literary novel, genre fiction, or if you just need a critical review of grammar and construction, I know Dawn will offer very valuable advice to you. Sincerely, Rick Bolner

About

I'm available to edit novels, short stories, fiction/non-fiction, etc. This can be a basic edit or something more involved, depending on what you need. These services start at $1 per page. I also do ghostwriting and have no problem doing this as a 'job for hire' so that you can put your name on the project. I write articles for websites on many subjects, but my specialty is health-related articles about how to stay healthy naturally with good nutrition and vitamins. I've been writing/editing for 20+ years and have had five historical romances published as well as a non-fiction book about health matters.

I have a B.A. in Journalism and a strong background in English usage and grammar. I was a reporter and photographer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Belleville (Ill.) News-Democrat. I copy edited my stories and the stories of others. I'm reading some newspaper stories by Hemingway and I edit his usage. I mentally copy edit everything for usage and punctuation--newspapers, magazines, signs and billboards. "Maybe" and the apostrophe are misused more than they are used correctly I'm based in Collinsville, Ill., near St. Louis.

About

I'm a location-independent editor and ghostwriter with a passion for helping writers create masterpieces. I've been a writer and editor in some form for over seventeen years. I know words, and I know the people who write them. There are tons of editors out there who will take your text, run a red pen through it, send it back and go on their merry way. If that's the kind of editor you want, we won't work well together. On the other hand, if you want an editor who will ask questions, make suggestions, call you out when you sabotage your own authority or let your emotions take over your writing, nitpick over using the exact right word, and give you a loving kick in the ass from time to time, all in the interest of making your work the masterpiece we both want it to be…nice to meet you. :)
