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.
Frank has done an excellent job of copy editing my 250 manuscript. He was timely, high quality, and courteous. His comments were well thought out. I would highly recommend his work. He went beyond the editing by discussing with me different publishing possibilities.
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!
Wendy Notarnicola did a great job proofreading and line editing my book manuscript. I have used her services for general business documents too and she is always accurate professsional and fast.
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.
Awesome work! My wife and I were delighted with your edits and quick turnaround of our 200 page manuscript! We never expected so many corrections but they were all spot on! We look forward to working with you on this project.
I had a project which consisted in editing nine badly written articles for a Newsletter , Michael did it with such a perfection and very well written English and always met the deadlines . As first time Thumbtack user it was for me a very good experience . I recommend Micheal to all those who like perfection .
Sima is an excellent editor. Should is always diligent, efficient and professional. She edits my firms documents and helps us always have a professional appearance. I highly recommend her.
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.
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+++
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!!
Over a three month period, Mr. Black assisted in winnowing a 600 page commercial novel to a lean 380 pages. He focused the main story, built the pace, and highlighted the main themes and characters. What was most impressive was his ability to shape and pace the story. In short, he took a turkey and deftly carved it which enabled the writer to present a beautiful platter. He is absolutely brilliant. Full value received. It is so easy to get lost in your own MS to have someone like Mr. Black is priceless. He is frank in both praise and criticism and won't waste your time. Living in Los Angeles I was nervous to work with someone from the East Coast but it worked out fine. He is accessible, responsive and worth diamonds.
Andy is an exceptionally talented writer and editor. Thoughtful, insightful and responsive, it's the best collaborative experience I've had!
Taylor is a phenomenal tutor and editor. She helped me craft my application for grad school, and I think that played big factor in me getting accepted!
