Upon finding out that I needed to submit a "design completed" page for my daughters cotillion book and that I had missed the deadline...SHEER PANIC settled in for me. I pleaded for an extension as I was traveling. They gave me 24 hours! After calling around while in St.Louis, I remembered THUMBTACK! Shannon responded and requested more information about what I needed. I contacted her rambling and frantic, desperately seeking understanding of my issue. Shannon comforted me with her confidence to complete the job in just a few hours. I was able to send her a few photos, describe what I wanted and she created a masterpiece! Shannon is clearly a professional who not only handles escalated requests, she manages with precision, confidence and comfort to the customer. This is the type of service that deserves constant public recognition and the highest accolades possible. I am elated with her work, and regard her highly as others should too. Shannon SAVES LIVES!!!:)

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.

I hired Mike to do some copy editing for an eBook I had written. Not only did he do an exceptional job with copy editing basics, he was able to recommend someways to restructure the content that would make the overall product better. On top of that, I asked if he could expedite the work and he was more than responsive. Overall, exceptional work. Very happy.

"I had the pleasure of working closely with Gretchen Kalwinski for nearly three years at TransUnion--and I can't say enough good things about her. Gret is a writer/editor super-pro who also happens to be really good people. At TU, she was an ace at creating all kinds of digital and print marketing content; she was our department's resident AP style guru and stingiest proofreader; she's a creative thinker with great business instincts; and she's the kind of generous colleague who might pop into your cube offering things like a) salted dark chocolate squares b) black-currant flavored stress-relief lozenges and c) cutting-edge SEO and email best practice insights. And that's just what she did in that one job. Having seen up close a lot of the other work she's done, I can also tell you she's unbelievably versatile. B2B corporate copywriter, editor in many places, arts/culture journalist, creative writing instructor....no matter the communication challenge, Gret nails it. P.S. I'm happy to talk on the phone or email, if you'd like to hear me rave more.

When I need solutions, I call Faith. I can not begin to express how great it has been to work with her. I met Faith while serving as Marketing Director of a University. She was contracted for numerous editing projects. Later, Faith assisted me in transitioning to my present entrepreneurial role. We collaborated in web content creation/editing. Faith has a strong background in business services, accounting, and compliance. Yet, she enjoys writing and editing - what a combination. Her business recommendations have been invaluable and her excitement is phenomenal. You should see for yourself. Faith has my recommendation!

Lucille helped me with editing papers for my Master's degree. I was so pleased with the results, and hired her to help my daughter with her High School creative writing assignments! When I learned that she also did tutoring for reading, I asked her to help my elementary school Granddaughter, with reading comprehension. She has a special way of teaching which made the work fun while achieving success. Her writing abilities are evident in her published books for children and adults. I have read and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend her services.

I've worked with Heidi over several months on jobs that required her writing, editing and videography skills. The writing and videos were for website pages, the editing was for books and also a website. Heidi's performance was terrific in all respects. Her technical skills are highly proficient, her work ethic is outstanding, and her cooperative talents make her the kind of person you want to work with. She can be counted on to take effective initiative and also to work very smoothly on a team. Some of my most productive project meetings were with Heidi! I also want to mention something important but more elusive. The text Heidi created and the text she edited were not cut-and-dried, counting-widgets sort of copy. They didn't need only the right punctuation and grammar, they needed to be done by someone who had the skill to understand what would communicate best with the audience, someone who would ask the right questions and incorporate the answers effectively into the project. Heidi is doing a great job, and I look forward to our continuing work together!

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.

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!!!!
