Pat was awesome awesome awesome. In a very short amount of time, practically over a weekend, the woman did wonders for me! I was a frantic mess in trying to find an editor for my dissertation equivalent project for my doctorate degree. God knew what I needed. We communicated through text, emails, phone, etc. and she was available to talk corrections and edits from start to finish. Well worth the 575.00! I plan to use her for my non profit and when I start writing my book as well. Thanks so much Pat and God bless you!!!

Dorothy Potter Snyder was the editor of my book "Significant! From Frustrated to Franne-tastic. Inspirational Stories for the entrepreneurial woman." Dorothy worked with me over a period of four months. a) Reviewed and edited my book b) Challenged me to consider the reader's perspective. c) Introduced effective ways of communicating my message. d) Shared resources to facilitate the final book production. Dorothy was personable, encouraging and professional, and with her impeccable standards, held me accountable for producing a book that was clearly written. i enjoyed working with Dorothy and would highly recommend her to writers who are looking for an editor with integrity.

    I've had Gila edit my writing for almost two years. Her copy editing is exceptional, however it's her creative help with plot development, character emphasis and story organization that make stories come alive. She's so encouraging as well!

    A thorough, smart, detail-oriented and conscientious writer with an approachable, yet informative style. Excellent with deadlines and budgets. Very receptive to input and revision. Communicates needs, progress and updates effectively and efficiently. As writers go, Jessica is one of the most disciplined with her work and one of the most astute at understanding the needs of business owners. She is a professional through and through... and truly a value in the market of reliable writers.

    Bill did a great job proofreading my manuscript. He gave suggestions on how to improve some areas and pointed out the strong points in the story. He also proof read my Query for no charge.

      As a freelance writer, researcher and editor, Kat consistently and reliably turns in polished, professional grade work, on time, without fail. I recently hired her to do some research and copy writing for Carolina Partners in Mental Health Care; she finished every assignment well within the deadlines, taking painstaking care to craft well-written, exhaustively-researched pieces without typos or grammatical errors. I now consider her a go-to resource for our company. Kat is highly communicative - if she has questions, she will get in touch with you right away, to ensure that she goes into any assignment with all the requisite information. In short, Kat is a good writer, a hard worker, and a delightful person to work with. I cannot recommend her skills enough.

She is an outstanding writer and editor and has very good attention to detail. Virtually every important piece of communication I have shared in the past 15 years- be it a letter, PowerPoint presentation, documentation, etc. - has been reviewed and vetted by Sherri. I enthusiastically recommend her to any person, from entry level to executive, who needs help with communication and administrative tasks.
