I was very happy with Margaret's work editing my manuscript. I could tell that she was thorough and took great care while also completing my manuscript in a timely manner. I would gladly hire her again.

David was a great help in editing my book! He was able to organize the ideas and get all of the touches done that I, as the author, was in far too deeply to see! He did fantastic job and Crystal Child is now a reality we can both be proud of!

This was not my first effort trying to use a content writer and I had a negative opinion of all content writers after my first experience. Malory from “The Missing Ink” quickly changed my opinion about the value and opportunity a skilled writer can offer to a company. Malory is an excellent content writer and capable of writing about almost anything. She is punctual and created a beautiful 2,700 words of awesome content and she made it in a day. Based upon her first sample writing effort, I was so impressed that i have already given her new projects to tackle and plan to utilize her unique skills into the foreseeable future.

Best money I ever spent. I sent my screenplay to Desi and she turned it into something that I could actually sell: it's currently under an option agreement with a production company. As a writer/editor, Desi Domo is a miracle worker!!

I have worked with JJ of AuthorMax for many years on various projects. From my experience, JJ always works closely with clients until the project is how they want it. If he is ghostwriting, he makes sure the client's voice (not his) is clear and distinct. JJ is also meticulous when it comes to editing. He isn't done with a manuscript until the client is happy with it. Equally important, he is easy to work with and personable.

So grateful to Alicia Byers! An immediate response back to my request for an Editor ASAP. Not only did she go to work on the one article I needed to be perfected right away but she patiently got me set up on my Google account and walked me though so together we could collaborate on the document together. I will be able to now send other writings for her edits and begin to put together my next project with her help. Working with her was magical and my writing transformed into a flow of precise understanding, clear and exactly the articulation needed to project to the reader the understanding. This writing was asked to be sent immediately as my Quote was chosen to be shared with thousands and an expanded version of the story of the quote was required. Thank you so mugh Alicia with your help many souls are going to receive a message of profound inspiration to know like you, they have a Shine On Hero inside!!!! Love Always, Juliette Miles, Becoming Beautifully Scarred to Shine On". I would be honored for you to join the world ambassadors at www.facebook.com/stopbullyingambassador. Looking forward to working with you on other projects soon!! Thank You so much for your immediate help needed for this work requested ASAP. Sometimes the time is now and you get it done with the help of a caring soul. Shine On Angel!!

    Virginia helped me write content for my website. When I first met with Virginia I was all over the place and didn’t know what I wanted to say or had too much to say. She guided me through the process of coming up with content and asked key questions to help narrow down what my content would be. In the end she took my jumble thoughts and created concise clear wording about my company. I learned more from working with Virgina than I imagined and don’t have anything to change. She is extremely professional, engaging and thorough.

      With 80 books under my belt, both in fiction and non-fiction, and in the juvenile and adult markets, I can help with a story if a writer is stuck with writer's block, or with a plot. I have done work for Disney, Star Trek, Marvel comics, and many other licensed properties.

DH consists of a full creative team available for hire during production. All of us work in the field and join together creatively in our off time. ABOUT ME I am a writer who loves to help projects stay efficient and on brand while keeping crew on a reasonable work day schedule. Working as a freelance producer / editor allows me the freedom to write and create my own projects. It is a very rewarding career to help creatives! - MY PROCESS FOR SCRIPT LINING I dissect your script, split every department into its own sheet, and research the best solution for obtaining every requirement to tell your story. YOU PROVIDE: The completed script, as many details and preferences currently on brain for the project. I PROVIDE Patience, nimble fingers, a spreadsheet, and Celtx. Rates starting at $75/hr, sliding scale. Drop me a line if you'd like to work together! - MY PROCESS FOR VIDEO EDITING We discuss the type of project first. If this is a one day music video shoot, I'd like to be there to take notes. This is not required for all shoot types. Upon wrapping production, we'll meet, exchange footage, and review your preferred takes / desired story edit. I use Final Cut X and am certified in Final Cut Pro 7. I am familiar with Avid and Adobe Premiere, but do not own these programs. YOU PROVIDE: The footage, an external hard drive for the project. I PROVIDE Macbook Air with Final Cut X, mobility up to 5 miles, and a pleasant calm attitude. Rates starting at $50/hr, sliding scale. Drop me a line if you'd like to work together!
