After talking to Bespoke Editorial I decided that my book was not ready for copy editing. Sabrina suggested that I take my book to a develop editor,or try to get feed back from writing community groups. I went to a writing meet up, and I was not satisfied. All the feedback I got was that the book is too dense. Sabrina explained what this meant and then pitched the idea of a manuscriptevaluator being the strategic decision to do to see if the book was ready for copy editing. From there she recemmended three developmental editors who do manuscript evaluating. She even gave me the rate they would charge.

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.

A true proffesional. Always making great suggestions. Working on the weekends to complete my project. Always answered my emails right away. Answered all my calls when I had questions and made some changes that made my transcript much more cohesive. His expertise added the edge that I needed to make my book stand out. Tom is the best at what he does. I give him 6 stars, 5 being the highest. I am more than ecstatic with his work.

My experience working with Mrs. Linhorst can not be expressed in this review. The way she brings my words and thoughts, to a completed body of work is magical. Not just with basic writings such as my book, but my verbiage on websites; also for my handouts, to speaking engagements wording. Needless to say there isn’t any writing task she has not over delivered for me. I definitely recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the near future.

My mission is to improve your copy -- or write it for you -- while being true to your voice. Whether you want a casual or a formal tone, I'll work with you to make it right. Writing well isn't easy. You have to ensure your reader gets the right message, without using tone of voice, body language or gestures. I enjoy polishing others' copy to make it readable and effective, whether that means a few tweaks or a complete rewrite.

Angie's enthusiasm for the first book in my Welltower series inspired me to push forward and publish it. Her enthusiasm, attention to detail and positive guidance gave me the spark to finish three more volumes in the series and to develop more. As with any good editor, their positive reception is due in large part to her work.

    Book doctoring including Proofreading/Copy Editing/Developmental Editing/Fiction Editing/Non-fiction Editing, Customers appreciate my thoroughness and eye for detail. Over the 123 books I've edited, there isn't a single writing problem that I haven't had to solve.

    About

    Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.
