Alice is an exceptional editor and guide. I chose her on Thumbtack because her description of being a conductor was so appealing to me as a first time writer. In our conversations she has provided me with alot of great advice from the small details of editing to big picture issues. She has been generous with her time, punctual, has a great sense of humor (so needed in 2020) and is thoroughly knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Alice to anyone who wants to work with a professional committed to their project and to have an outstanding result like mine.

It was my first romance novel. I majored in science and English is not my first language. The work I bestowed on Alice was daunting considering all those factors. To add to that, it integrated deep Kalenjin cultural content. Alice was very tactical, respectful and exceptionally motivating. She encouraged me to dig deep and took me to places I would have never gone. Alice networked with colleagues to provide a comprehensive unfiltered, unbiased constructive feedback. She never complained how many times I contacted Alice or revisions made to the work. She was more interested on quality. I appreciated your unfailing attention to details particularly. Alice unwavering patience and attention to details removed all my worries of something falling through the cracks. Alice anticipated every contingency and still working with her on it to make the project successful. Her services are worth every cent spend. Believe me! Thanks to Alice’s selflessness and expertise, I will publish my first romance novel.

Alice is an excellent and great editor with Phenomenal understanding of English literature and talent to see the story from the start to the end. Her work on my book included Developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading. She worked on my book with a passion to develop an ordinary story to an extraordinary story. I am a first-time author, she turned my book to a page-turner. My children didn't get much interest in my book before her editing. This is what my son said after her editing. "Dad, I loved your story. I couldn't put it down. It is almost 2 am." This is the power od a good editor. She is professional, punctual and changes your book from okay, a book to a page-turner. I recommend anyone thinking about editing a job to hire her without any hesitation or doubt. I am very picky and detail-oriented. I searched for a good editor for months and finally settled for her after a few telephone conversations. I know now that I made the right decision to hire Alice for my book editing.

Alice did a wonderful job editing various personal stories I have written over the years. I wanted to put them all together in one book. All this was done with great dispatch. She even had some excellent suggestions to improve the writing. No question I would highly recommend her.

Write Books Right (WBR) was a great fit for me. The WBR quickly provided comprehensive editing for sentence structure, word choice, grammar, and style - just what I needed.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    When we work together, there will be no surprises about the cost. Before we begin a project, we will discuss the way you will be billed, either by the hour or for the total project. We will have a contract that describes what we expect from each other. Repeat customers get a discount.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each client is different and unique. For some individuals, we can begin working after an initial phone call and an exchange of e-mails, including signing a contract. For others, we might meet in person and discuss the project with a follow-up with e-mails that also includes a contract that explains what the timeline will be for the project and the costs involved.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have written seven of my own books, which have been commercially published. I have edited more than 200 other books. I have a master's degree in English and English education.
