Todd edited my picture children's book manuscript. As soon as he received my manuscript he finished editing it the following day. He gave the opportunity to address any questions or concerns. He gave me suggestions for my book and helpful tools I can use on my self-publishing journey. He didn't have to do that, but he did. After working with Todd, I was even more excited about publishing my story. Thanks Todd for helping me. I really appreciate you and your customer service!

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.

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.

Diane was amazing! My book went through several filters, including my professional editor. She found several errors that needed to be addressed before it went to press. I was very impressed with her ability to see how some suggested changes were connected to other pages in the book. For instance, changing a term in a given chapter meant it needed to be changed in the study guide at the end of the book. Diane showed her ability to be flexible as her work included editing two PDF documents. One PDF was from the book printer and the other version included several new pages that needed adjustments from a graphic designer. Although, this is not the recommended way to proof read a 360 page book, she accepted the challenge with enthusiasm. Diane was able to return the project to me in a surprisingly short time, given the length of the book. She is not only a highly skilled editor and proofreader, she is also very personable. I highly recommend Diane Brown!

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.

Of the five choices that I had, Susan was such a godsend in my time of need. She helped me iron out my ideas and offered word suggestions that made the story of my life leap out from the page. She refined my thoughts and helped with the technical editing that I struggled with. This essay was one of the most important pieces that I had to write and after hearing Susan’s initial thoughts and ideas, I trusted it into the care of her hands. Susan was also great because she offered different price plans to work within my budget. Finally, she also worked within my tight deadline. But if you give her more time she can help with research and possibly run your work by specific industry professions for feedback. I strongly recommend Susan when you need someone to help bring out the best of you through your writing.

A much needed kick in the butt on my manuscript, but hardly discouraging. She knew what I was trying to achieve and returned a thoughtfully edited manuscript with what worked and what needed revision. Could not be more grateful.

We had a good experience with David. He was on time and set up quickly. Prior to the wedding we had a lengthy meeting to discuss the kind of pictures we would like. The pictures were on line in three days. The pictures were good and David did a good job capturing our special moment.

I had Bianca go through and edit my very important essay; There are no words for how well of a job she did. You can truly see she cares for not only getting the job done but puts genuine effort into any project. There's nothing she can work on to be better.. She's perfect.

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.

About

It is our mission to provide professional, publishing-quality editing at rates that regular folks can afford. You are the expert -- and you can see us as your executive assistant: asking thoughtful questions, pointing out potential problems, and fixing all the little things you don't need to be bothered with. How it works: We provide expert editing using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word (we thank you in advance for sending your document in MS Word format). When the editing is complete, we provide you with 2 documents: the edited draft showing all editing markings (so you can see what was changed), and, for your convenience, a "clean" draft in which all edits have been incorporated, with no markings except for direct questions to you in the margin. If we find something in your document that we're not sure about, we will leave it as-is, and post a question in the margin, or give you suggestions of ways to re-write that section, and let you choose which one is the best. We look forward to assisting you! Sincerely, The Editing Group team
