Mikki did a great job, was very responsive and economical with the entire project. She is far above the average content editor. Would absolutely recommend her.
Lisa wrote several profiles for me; elevator speech, social media profiles, presentation intros etc. I was amazed how she took the information I gave her (via a very thought-out survey she created) and turned it into a fun, informational, interesting and professional bio. I loved the person she wrote about! She is a genius at making YOU look good; whether it's a profile, a magazine article or collobrating on a project - Lisa is your secret weapon.
The main thing we looked for in someone to help us with our Social Media was Trust. We know nothing about what Laura does for us, so we had to trust her on so many different levels. She shows us the report and always has great cool ideas for our face book and other accounts. She has helped our business so very much. This is our second year together, I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much.
I worked with Orrin Grey and Castle Danger Press numerous times during my tenure as the managing editor for Skull Island eXpeditions, a fiction imprint of Privateer Press. I commissioned Orrin to write short stories, novellas, and tabletop gaming material. Orrin was exceedingly professional and never failed to deliver high-quality work by the deadline.
Intelligence, inspiration, motivation, creative these are just some of the adjectives that pop out when asked to describe Eric Kendall Banks. He is awesome at pulling these same attributes out of others. We all have a book inside of us to share, letters to write, stories to tell; but, cant imagine where to start. My suggestion is to utilize the services Eric provides. He has really helped me along the way and has motivated me to do so much more than I would have on my own. His fees are more than reasonable and you really feel you have a partner as oppose to an advisor for fee. Thanks, Eric for all youve done! Others will follow, because your work speaks for itself!
Jeffrey was very helpful to me as I pursued my Master's Degree over the past few years. Because over ten years had passed before returning to school, I realized the need for an editor who could help me clarify my thinking and simplify my writing. On more than one occasion, this resulted in finished papers that professors recommended be submitted for publishing.
As a copyeditor, Erin Griggs is thorough and possessed of a discerning eye, catching those things that its all too easy for a writer to miss once theyve lived with a manuscript for a considerable amount of time. As a content reader, she excels, bringing a broad base of academic knowledge, an understanding of genre conventions, and ability to frame story questions with sensitivity, never imposing personal preference on an authors intent or vision.

Nicole Jordan is a natural when it comes to writing. I clearly remember the first blog of her's I read, and that was over two years ago! The blog was actually a recounting of a church event Nicole experienced. I was at this event, as was a friend of mine who forwarded the blog on to me. I remember the evening to be a good evening, but not an amazing one. Nicole's experience was very different, and her blog expressed it powerfully. I noticed two things about Nicole as I read that blog. First, I noticed how effortlessly her words flowed. The words were linked together with simplicity, but included just enough artful touches of words dashed in to remind you that Nicole is a deep thinker. That balance was impressive. The second thing I noticed was even more moving. Nicole, as bright as she must be to be able to write so well, is teachable. That church experience created an "aha" moment for Nicole, and she acted on it. Many capable people are satisfied with their level of accomplishment. I believe Nicole, even with the talent she already demonstrates, is only beginning to scratch the surface of her potential. It was because of her raw talent and innate ability that I asked Nicole to help me write a book I have been working on. Already, her ability to discern the direction of the book and her ability to better articulate what I am trying to say have made this a better book. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
Rachel Beck Photography There are people in life who have a talent with writing and grammar; I am not one of those people. My career in photography requires a lot of writing for PR and marketing. I may have the ideas, but when it comes to putting them together and making sure the piece is written professionally, there is only one person that I count on. Her name is Dee Dee Squires. I have known her for ten years. There is no reason for you to look any further for an editor or writer. She is a perfectionist and I deeply appreciate that about her. She is a master of the English language. In life we have to realize our flaws and search for the talented people who can help us. I deeply admire and respect her for her talents and will not work with anyone else when it comes to writing and editing. Rachel
I’ve worked with Rich on a considerable number of writing projects for proposals and general marketing solutions. I can say without a doubt that he is the most talented and dependable writer/editor with whom I’ve worked. Rich provided editorial leadership to our entire team. He has the self-confidence, skill, and fearlessness that our team not only depended upon, but that we learned from in delivering winning messages.
The service was great. I'd asked him to write me an action scene for my book. I know what I'm not good at. I asked him for 3000 words and he delivered exactly when he said he would. He also kept me aware of his daily schedule and when he was working on the project. The finished product was polished nicely and fit great. Would definitely hire him again if needed.
Anne Tezon was professional, knowledgeable and articulate. She worked quickly and with quality and attention to detail. I will work with her again, with full confidence. Great work ethic!

I've penned published articles for fashion and trade magazines, composed websites, company profiles, brochure copy and social media. I love putting ideas into a piece of work and seeing a completed project. I'm very detail oriented and love to deliver a great product!
When I'm writing I have a fluid, humorous, conversational style. When I am editing I know how to make you sound like you. The creativity involved. There's nothing better than a blank page. When it is filled with ideas, that's when the hard work begins.
