This started out very business like but ended feeling very personal. I appreciated her gentle, yet very honest, critique. My main request of wanting to know exactly what I needed to improve on when I begin writing my other book, and she wonderfully complied.

I met Maura a while ago when I was looking for a teacher to help me improve my conversation skills in English. During our meetings she stimulated the conversation by asking lots of questions about myself, about my country, making me not only to use English but gaining the necessary confidence needed to speak in another language that is not my native one. Another valuable thing that I learned from Maura was a good insight about American culture, people and places in NJ/NY. She also recommended me great books for improving my conversation skills, with useful expressions and topics for practice. Last but not the least, Maura shared from her experience in Toefl preparation exam which is one of my future objectives. I recommend Maura for anyone who is interested in improving English language skills.

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!

Rosemary Donahue is a visionary editor, articulate, dedicated, honest, and detail-oriented, striking the balance between amiable and diligence. She recently co-founded Lumen, the innovative journal of literature and ideas by and for women, which promises to be an important American magazine. She also served as fiction editor of Pacific Review, doing most of the design and layout, demonstrating style, toughness and pizazz under time-pressure at every juncture. She's one of the best editors I've ever worked with in the past twenty years!

Adrienne shows punctuality and adaptiveness when writing the newsletter for my company, Anyone Comics. We only had a few back and forths, on the onset, where I shared with her some resources for information related to comic books. Her instincts of what products to highlight and the language she uses helped create a personable experience for the clients that subscribed. Highly recommended.

The editing Jennifer does for me is for fiction. She is the fourth professional editor I have paid to do editorial work, and she is definitely one of the two best. Her organizational suggestions are right on the money; her line edits are always choices better than the ones I made. She is good-natured to a fault, always sees the encouraging side of things, and always has a very secure grasp on the totality of the project. She is also very well read, which helps in any discussion. I recommend her very highly. –Donald W.

Sophia is awesome! She helped me with my book, a memoir that I wrote. She read different drafts and made very useful editing suggestions and helped me cut some parts out. Definitely recommend her for any writing/editing needs!

I usually don't write reviews but I feel that my consulting experience with Chris Traynor last year was important for me - and therefore might be important to you as well. I'm a successful independent author with two novels and one children's book. Additionally, I have experience in course design and executive teaching in the corporate world. In the Spring of 2013, I was contracted to create a special learning experience for our State and City Police Forces in the area of community interaction. I hit a roadblock when it came to creatively integrating the separate lesson modules and, after asking around, I received Mr. Traynor's name from a friend. I spent the next 3 months working closely w/Chris - mostly by phone and email. I instantly felt at ease with his communication style (friendly, supportive) and his questioning ability got us quickly to the heart of the matter each time we talked. The investment I made with him made a significant difference in my course and in the positive response I received, thanks to the good fortune that was offered me through the ability to "rent" a piece of Chris Traynor's whip-smart mind.

Kat is a truly gifted editor. I’ve hired her on numerous occasions to help me communicate exactly what it is I’ve wanted to say. I’ve received nothing but positive responses on each occasion. Her communication is unparallel and she has a delightfully calming disposition and attitude. Will hire again and again A+++

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.

I hired Mr. Black to provide editing services for my book. Although I am not one of his best selling authors, I was very pleased with the insightful help he gave me. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about producing a first rate product in a timely manner. His experience shows in the help he gives and the impact he makes.

I specialize in developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading--I take manuscripts and improve their story arcs and characterizations and fix all grammatical and stylistic errors. But most of all, I punch up the prose--I make it more vivid and more concise, and I make dialog sound more interesting and natural.
