Todd Larson did an excellent job editing my book Rising Stars in Emerging Markets, published in 2013. He not only helped to cut the size of the text without changing the underlying message, but also did this under a very tight deadline. I wrote this book with the layperson reader in mind, which is always difficult to do, especially when writing about little-known names in emerging markets. But Todd helped to simplify the jargon to make the book easier to read, especially on my country-specific comments. I definitely recommend Todd for editing projects in business as well as non-business areas.
I was badly in need of an editor for my novel and found Mr. Larson on Thumbtack. He was extremely reasonable, professional, and completed my editing in less time than I expected. I explained my issues and he addressed all of them. I plan to take advantage of his talent again when my next novel is completed. I would like to highly recommend him, especially to new writers. Thank you thumbtack and Mr. Larson
I had two objectives - to improve my SAT reading score & develop better experience with the essay section.. In just two hours consulting over the phone, Kathy was extremely helpful in achieving both of my goals. She taught me alternative methodical strategies for different types of critical reading passages & questions. She also eliminated my anxiety of getting caught off guard by a strangeEssay prompt by explaining how & why I could prepare my examples ahead of test day, write to the specific structure and still stand out from other good persuasive writers. She even made it fun to recognize the most common grammar mistakes on the test. The resulting positive attitude, clear-mind, and confidence I had on test day definitely improved my score. Thank you Kathy!!
I knew after first phone call that I was going to feel comfortable and confident working with Ken as my consultant. He took an old resume, reformatted it, and revised it. We were able to work together on new document thru shared google docs. He listened and was very responsive as he strove to guide me in the writing process. I now have a cover letter and resume to share with potential employers.
My experience with Ian was SO delightful... I am a bit older and recently decided to go back to college. I hired Ian to help me with college essays.. He has a great background and such a creative writer. In addition to the essays he offered to help me with my resume knowing that colleges will also request that. I couldn't be happier with his service!!
Thank you, Melinda! I truly appreciate the time you took to spruce up my resume, provide guidance and for reviewing everything you did in detail with me. You are a professional, courteous and skilled writer. I cannot wait to hire you again!
David was a fantastic support with the opening chapter of my first novel. He provided excellent insights into my writing habits, great suggestions and ultimately focussed on where I could strengthen my story to keep the reader engaged. His editing was very valuable, and he responded almost immediately. I would work with him again and happily recommend others consider him also.
MIchael's editing for my book was excellent. He was through and went beyond expectations in his comments, suggestions and remarks. We had several phone conversations during the process and he exhibited a level of involvement and interest in my book showed that he really understood what I was trying to say and edited accordingly. Michael is fun to work with and I will ask him to edit the next book.
He is a good writer and editor
Lauren is an outstanding writer and editor. My company has had the pleasure of collaborating with Lauren on many different projects (including our promotional material, customer outreach, and online blog), and her contributions are consistently well received by our staff members and customers. She has never failed to meet a deadline, and continues to impress with her attention to detail. Lauren always goes the extra mile—I would recommend her services without hesitation!

The experience was very positive as YourBrandExposed was able to provide excellent insight into the basics of eCommerce. The training was extremely clear and easy to follow and meant to expand our thoughts on how to better present our product in a more effective way and more importantly, how to communicate it to our customers. We are extremely pleased with the training, services provided; skills learned that easily translated into profit increase and continuous support. It’s like having your own in-house eCommerce team.

I customize each clients resume to serve their specific need.
You tell me what you want or need, I'll do my best to accommodate you. We'll work close together, no gray areas.
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.
While I'm obsessive and thorough when it comes to removing errors, I'm also in love with the flexibility of language and feel that every project has its own distinct personality. I am aware and adaptable, always conscious of the overall tone and focus of a piece to ensure it represents you and your needs.
