Top Rated Book Editors Around Ashburn, VA
Jeff was very helpful and professional in editing my book.
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.
Ashshanae did an awesome job editing my manuscript. Her work is of great quality and she had a super fast turn around time. Very professional. I will use her for future editing projects.
Sharon is phenomenal ! Very professional, organized and honest in pricing. I have never written a book before and her expertise and advice have really helped me get my project started. Very happy that I have retained her as the Ghostwriter for my content. I’m very excited to work with her!
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.
