She edited my very first childens book and was very knowledgable and patient with me!
During the writing of my book, The Apple Doesn’t Fall Too Far in Maple Brook, I was incredibly fortunate to find Richard Lowenstein as my editor. Richard blessed my book with the professionalism and organization that it had lacked. Richard was a great editor to work with, as he brought out my creative writing skills. And he always made himself available for any questions I might have. An extremely easy and enjoyable person to communicate with, he made sure that my book was sound and was edited to my complete satisfaction. His professional prowess awakened my book and pulled the reader into the world of Kawan and his many different experiences. Five stars richly deserved!
We hired this amazing tutor to help teach our son some basic science facts and answer various science and math questions. He not only met, but far, far exceeded our expectations and we will be using him again and again. He is simply a brilliant and engaging tutor who can explain even very difficult concepts to make them understandable to children of all ages. He is a published physics PhD who, as a father of five sons, knows how to relate to children and get them interested in science and math. He is also very well-traveled and teaches in a relaxed, conversational manner that makes learning enjoyable.
Elicia Stoll is an amazing proof reader an editor. With an outstanding professionalism she has been able to exquisitely edit all three of my award-winning novels in The Demon Side Series. I truly believe without Elicia's stellar editing abilities, quick turn-around, and educate insightfulness, I never would have become a published author. I highly recommend Elicia Stoll for all of your proofreading and editing needs!

Karen was the editor of my instructional book. All went very well.
Steve converted my family 8 mm home movies to DVD. A daunting task since there was a lot of footage. Not only was he very professional, but sincerely cared about preserving these priceless moments. I highly recommend that you use Steve, you'll be very happy with the results.
Cindy was my editor for my first self-published book, "Ride On!" and she has helped me tremendously on making my story come alive. Since I am not a writer by trade, she worked with me on skills I needed to improve, offered many suggestions, and mostly spent time with me. I highly recommend her for your writing and editing purposes.

Rick Bolner Austin, TX 78749 May 21, 2010 To Whom It May Concern: I have had the pleasure of knowing Dawn Lenz for the past five years. On many occasions she reviewed my fictional work and always offered keen insights and an attention to detail that I seldom received from others, including published novelists. Perhaps most helpful to me was her understanding of my work and what I wanted to achieve. With specific examples and suggestions, she told me how my work wouldor wouldntsucceed. Dawn never hijacked my work or its intended outcome. In addition to her comprehension of fiction, her application of formatting, grammar, and punctuation was exceptional. I recently read her novel Winged Victory. In it, she demonstrates her understanding of the far-reaching requirements of fiction. The plot had great narrative energy; her plot-point spins were perfectly timed, and she did a superb job of getting her protagonist into tough situations throughout the story. I found the predicaments believable, and the specifics with which she rendered them, convincing. Also, the story is replete with entertaining incidents. Her use of sensual details, which are essential to good fiction writing, added to the dramatic effect. I never gave pause to her dialogue. It was artfully set up through supporting narrative to give its delivery a pop and rhythm. Also, she skillfully used dialogue tagscharacters actions used in lieu of "he said, she said" locutionswhich is an earmark of a serious pro. Her setting of ancient Greece was compelling and accessible for me as a reader who knows little of that milieu. The physical descriptions, with other details, ratcheted up her verisimilitude and the overall power of the story. The narrative energy, along with its tightness, and professional presentation made me feel very comfortable and confident that the author would deliver. I wasnt disappointed. Obviously, if she knows how to achieve this in her own work, certainly its fair to expect her to share these insights and talents with you. Whether youre writing a literary novel, genre fiction, or if you just need a critical review of grammar and construction, I know Dawn will offer very valuable advice to you. Sincerely, Rick Bolner
I used Treasure's editing services in drafting poems for a picture book manuscript. She saw areas of strength that I did not see and she gave pointers for improving the weak areas of my manuscript.
After great frustration with trying to self-design a book cover for a soon to be published political, action thriller novel, I asked Megan to lend some expertise to the project. To put it mildly, I was blown away by the graphics and overall design of the cover. Her work was first class. She offered me three different design choices to choose from with a very cogent explanation for each. All three were more than I could have expected. I have a degree in photography and art fron the University of Missouri, Columbia. I can recognize quality work when I see it. Her work was impressive enough that I will be contracting her for cover designs on three other novels that I have completed. I would recommend Megan's work with no reservations.

Because I'm not just about the rules of editing, I'm about the craft of fiction. As published author and somebody with more than 25 years publishing experience under my belt, I'm not new to the game. I really love to work with writers who really want to be better writers, not just have me dot their i's and cross their t's. Writing is an art, after all.
