Margaret did what she said she was going to do. She asked for ten days or more: she delivered the manuscript back to me in ten days. This is my first experience with fiction. From her ‘tracking corrections’ and commentaries I could see that she read every word—93,000! Yet, she treated the book as a whole: she understood the book and its intent. It set an important bound of trust between writer and editor: her commentaries were objective, yet, her suggestions were caring and doable. She spotted the things I had most difficult with and fixed it. For instance, verb tenses can throw off the reader. She suggested to keep it in the past—it works! She then explained the ‘market’ and the reason why I will probably have difficulties finding an agent. Nevertheless, she offered plausible suggestions on how I can get the book out there… Thank you Margaret! Gilberto Girardi

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.

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!!

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!

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+++

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.

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 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.
