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!

I was very stressed over my manuscript, but Mary talked me off the ledge! I loved the fact that I could pick up the phone and talk with her. Very personalized experience.

I admit JG work as she is very fast and accurate in her edition. Only, she had some tiny mistakes that I think they were more related to some confusing words in my manuscript. Best

I had a great experience with Laura. I worked with her in 2017 when she line-edited my book. In addition to cleaning up my prose, she had a lot of great suggestions about how to make the work better. When it comes to feedback, she's both skillful and kind -- something I value highly. Also, she's got a great sense of humor, keen insight, a sensibility for nuance, and is very easy to be around.

Tami is great! She was very thorough and quick to return my edited manuscript back to me within ten days. She helped me with word choices and content, as well as the basic typos and some suggestions on how to make my work the best it can possibly be.. Tami is also quick to answer all the questions I had regarding my manuscript. I felt there was a good line of communication between the two of us and I feel that is very important to have between a writer and the editor. She is very open-minded and has a great sense of humor. I will be using Tami's services to edit other works of mine in the book series. Thank you Tami for bringing me one step closer to my dream! You're the best!

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+++

Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.
