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!

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!

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.

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!!

I highly recommend as an editor or writer. I can’t think of anyone better – he’s exacting and efficient. He lends his subject expertise to products, while ensuring that they are clear to a common audience. Also very personable, a professional with whon it is always easy to work.

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.

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!

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+++

Verified review

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.

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.
