Could not have found a better writer! Mike is so talented, I explained what I needed and he delivered.Nov 13, 2013Verified
Mike edited my 200000 word autobiography. Upon our first consultation, he displayed an immediate understanding of what I was trying to accomplish. As the process began, I found his critique and insight of my work to be spot on as I began to realize my strengths and weakness. I have found that incorporating his suggestions into book have not only made me a better writer, but now I have a better book! BTW, all at a very fair price! BrianNov 24, 2015
Michael Lepenna is a wonderful writer to have on your team. He is reliable and responsible with achieving the tasks given and is great at coming up with creative solutions. I highly recommend hiring him for your projects.Oct 13, 2013
Not what I expected at all. It seems like he googled a a cover letter and sent it to me .Mar 29, 2017VerifiedOnline Copy Editing & Writing Services | Michael LaPenna's reply
I'm sorry you feel that way. I do think there was some miscommunication. Talk to me if you'd like to resolve any issues. Best wishes.
Michael is efficient, professional and genuine. He takes the time to ask questions specific to your career goals. From there, he produces a resumé guaranteed to get results. After working with Michael, the rate in which I was contacted by potential employers doubled. After a month, I was hired by a local hospital. Highly recommend Michael!Aug 15, 2017VerifiedOnline Copy Editing & Writing Services | Michael LaPenna's reply
