What can I say? Not enough. Lauren was absolutely, mind blowing perfect. A graceful combination of “let’s get moving” (motivation), and “don’t touch a thing after I’m done” (trust). I am a writer who has published several books. I know how difficult it is to “trust” someone else with your work, or as we say, “our babies”. However, on any given day I would put my work in Lauren’s hands. A great listener, her expertise, knowledge, and professionalism is validated by her many well-earned 5 star ratings. Lauren made my book worthy of being a top seller. If it falls short of that mark it is through no fault of hers. Thank you, Lauren. I am glad to have chosen you as my editor, and honored that you accepted me as your client. pure ability to polish the dullest lines into shining verse

Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!

I chose Sabrina to copyedit my manuscript partly because her projected cost was near the low end of the four bids I considered, but mainly because her sample edit of several pages left the others in the dust. Her subsequent work on the full manuscript far exceeded my prior experiences with copy editors in both depth of attention and conformity to my own style. In addition, the basic jobs of grammar, spelling, usage and formatting according to the Chicago Manual were perfect, and in a manuscript featuring various levels of bulleted lists and quotations. At the end, Sabrina charged me less than her bid, explaining that computer problems had accounted for some of the time she spent. This would have been a ridiculously low charge for the work she did, so I paid her more. Now that the book is going to print, I appreciate even more the exceptional quality of Sabrina's work.
