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.

I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

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.

I worked with Kevin on two different projects. A complete confusing book manuscript and a synopsis of a potential tv idea. I write in stream of consciousness and Kevin professionally and meticulously unraveled it all into a very readable format. He is a nice guy to work with and very fair and generous with his time. He has incredible dairoken(Japanese intuition) for an American and quickly puts himself in the author's shoes to make a clear and concise product. I highly recommend him for any writing project you have in mind and worth twice the money! Ray Hodge

She is great!!! I was searching for a person that could edit my Dissertation. She is able to edit complex academic topics. The feedback I got from my professor is great. Also she works fast and is very professional. If your looking for someone that can: read a complex material and understand it, being able to make edit related to grammar and being able to change the stile of the document to a more academic and professional one, this is the Person. I know is hard to find some one this good, I had tried other Editors and it was a nightmare, but I am happy and now more confident than ever that I will graduate for sure, and when I do, part of the reason will be her. If you are searching for some one Outstanding, you don't need to keep looking, she is for sure what you are looking for.

Laurie has edited many of my documents over the past 20 + years. She is professional, talented, creative, and has an excellent eye for detail. She has provided substantive copyediting and proof-reading for many of my published articles and professional papers. She also developed and regularly updates my PowerPoint presentations and hand-outs, that I use at conferences throughout the US and Europe, often adding Excel charts, or suggesting diagrams and exhibits, to more clearly describe a concept. Her work has also included reorganizing and editing my professional resume and detailed application, which helped me receive a Fulbright Scholarship. She is responsive, and diligent to make sure it meets all the requirements. I highly recommend Laurie Cohen for editorial services.

Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!

Angie's enthusiasm for the first book in my Welltower series inspired me to push forward and publish it. Her enthusiasm, attention to detail and positive guidance gave me the spark to finish three more volumes in the series and to develop more. As with any good editor, their positive reception is due in large part to her work.

    About

    Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.
