This was my first time working with an editor at any capacity. I interviewed a handful of other editors, but found after a few replies and an edit sample from Todd, that he was the guy for the job...and HE WAS! Todd is everything I needed in an editor, which are as followed: 1) Professional 2) Knowledgeable in his trade. 3) Helps advance the writer's work (as long as the writer is WILLING to cut all the unnecessary fat from their work, to make the pace of their work move more smoothly, as well as willing to expand their vocabulary) 4) Was NOT hard to deal with. Very personable, and did not show ANY form of negative judgement towards my piece. He had his own opinions on how to better my story, but did NOT push that his ideas MUST be used If I felt they weren't the best fit. (As it should be!) 5)Was prompt and feasible. 6) Lastly, never once made me feel that I was anything but a priority. This is my first horror short novel that I am releasing that has been edited. I don't know about any of you considering an editor to help them better their piece, but aren't all of these things EXACTLY what you want in an Editor? Thanks again Todd!

Dave is an excellent editor to work with. He is a great listener, collaborator and is responsive. He understood my vision and helped me get my book ready for publishing. It was important for me to feel comfortable with my editor and Dave did just that. He is open, honest and supportive. I highly recommend Dave and will continue to use him for my future projects.

    Sarah is my go-to editor/proofreader for every project; from resume design and professional writing, to academic assignments and even creative pieces. I have absolute trust in her knowledge of grammar and punctuation, as well as her eye for layout and her ear for perfect word choice. She is direct and tactful in communicating her recommendations. Our interactions have been fun, smart and time efficient. I always come away feeling uplifted.

    Tom was very thoughtful in his feedback on my document (85,000 words) and often offered alternative phrasings in the comments section. He queried things he did not understand clearly and I never felt like he skirted over any sections without checking things properly. His rates were also extremely reasonable for the work done. I was thankful to have another set of eyes to check through my work.

    About

Whatever you've written, I can fix it or we can create something entirely new, crafted to meet your goals and reflecting your distinctive voice.

    About

    As a Harvard-educated English major with an interest in psychology and, quite frankly, a boatload of neuroses (if you think one informs the other, you're probably right!), the intricacies of wordplay and effective messaging have always fascinated me. After graduation, I chose to go into the field of communications, which provided me with a solid foundation in PR and marketing writing styles. Despite trying to leave this field in my next role, the passion to write -- and, even more pressingly, to edit -- kept coming back to me and guiding the projects I sought out. In my full-time positions, I have ghostwritten legal blogs for the senior counsel of a major tech corporation; edited numerous academic manuscripts for successful submission and publication, as well as a doctoral dissertation; authored Commencement speeches for a university dean; and much more. My diverse background means I'm able to tackle pretty much any project and any content that is fired my way.

    About

    I have succeeded across a wide variety of assignments, long and short term. I have written editorial op/eds, letters from the CEO, corporate and non-profit communications, analysis, screenplays, ads, marketing collateral and have loved it all. It's always about telling a story in a beautiful or compelling way to connect with your readers. I am not patient, focused, skilled and intuitive.
