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 stopped writing creatively during law school until I took a workshop Ms. Stewart taught. She helped me rediscover my style and voice--and my love for writing. Since that workshop I have continued to seek Ms. Stewart's editorial services for various projects, including my first book. She has an editorial eye for sharpening the story's bigger picture and underlying themes. Some editors impose their will, but Ms. Stewart has a way of advising changes necessary for publication that reflect an understanding of the writer's intentions and goals. I have her to thank for a new start to my writing life.

Amenah provided me with impeccable service. She is very good at what she does. To start off she responded very quickly and communicated with me the entire process. Best part was when I saw my new resume. Better then I imagined and exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend her. Thank you so much Amenah, I am very happy with my new resume!

UNBELIEVABLE! This is the only way to describe the professionalism, passion, detail orientation, skill and pride that Dr. Casandra Levine shows in everything she does. As a small business owner it is difficult to find dedicated professionals who would invest the quality of time, focus and attention to detail to your work the way you would, despite the cost. As a doctoral student, she has worked with reviewing and Editing papers for both me and my cohort, helping our papers shine with the polished look of an accomplished academic scholar. She has not only edited for content, but has been instrumental in keeping my work in line with the latest editions of APA style which is required by my professors. If you are like me, while in the process of studying and working, there is little time to totally commit to the details of style manuals and sometimes inadvertently miss a few grammatical nuances. Having Dr. Levine as my go to editor and second pair of eyes, have given me the peace of mind necessary to focus on the content of my research, my papers and official correspondences. Her technical writing skills, multilevel ability to move between academic, federal, and business writing and editing is hard to beat. My humble thanks Dr. Levine, and I look forward to having you continue to allow me to shine. Regards, Denise Rosier

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.

As a new writer, I was looking for a friendly editor that could walk me through the process, and Jason delivered. He is easy to communicate with via email, and has provided helpful edits and comments on my writing that I believe have improved my writing in general. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.
