Margaret was very professional in all aspects. She was an excellent listener and if I did not understand something, she would explain it as best as she knew, until I understood. She was true to her word and always punctual when she said she would contact me. She was clear in her communication with me. She was timely and edited 28 stories efficiently and with incredible detail. There is one more story for her to edit. She is ready but I am waiting for the 'participant' to get back to me with her memoir. I would refer Margaret to anyone who wanted an excellent editor. Thank you, Margaret.
David is an awesome editor to work with. You can tell he has a lot of experience. He knows other professionals in the publishing industry so he is an amazing resource. I definetley recommend him.
I was initially skeptical of hiring an editor online. However while researching different editors I came across Tami Williscroft on Thumtack. I took the risk and reached out to her. Tami proved me wrong she responded to every email,question, etc almost immediately. She also was not pushy for me to make a decision. That was my first impression which prompted me to hire her. Not only was she amazing at communication she was even better in the editing she did for me. She made several suggestions, allowed me to look them over and went back and forth like this several times. She truly put all of her effort in assisting me in having a final product that could be submitted at the doctoral level. I am grateful to have found her, will use her again in the future, and if anyone is looking I would highly recommend her to others.
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!
I had the best experience using Sima to edit various papers. She was a pleasure to work with. Her editing was spot on. She responded to my request quickly and did the work in a timely fashion. I look forward to hiring her again for future projects.
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!!
Sandra made sure she had a clear grasp of my needs and the purpose and audience of the writing project, which is a series of blog-style book reviews/summaries that provide college and career advice. She wrote in a style that fit seamlessly with my website and provided exactly what I had asked. She met her deadline and maintained clear, professional communication and follow-through for a fee that was much more reasonable than other quotes I had received (some of which had typos and others which were instant responses without details that never delivered on promise to provide more info) I am very happy and will be using her services on an ongoing basis.
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+++
Majorie assisted a colleague of mine who needed assistance with finishing the book manuscript of his experiences in the Catskills, NY. She provided excellent service and he was very satisfied with her work. Harris Layne
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.
