I have been working with Sutton Mason on my book with much pleasure. When I tell people I have an Editor I am very happy to give out her name. Sutton has been very knowledgable and patient with me as I am new writing and publishing my first book.I am very excited to continue working with Sutton to have this project completed. Thank you Sutton for everything. Lynne Robitaille

I've worked with Marg on 5 projects (maybe more). Marg is not only detail-oriented with a fluid understanding of format and grammar, but she also understands when not to let that get in the way of telling a great story. Her insiteful, penetrating, direct and thorough feedback has been a real godsend for me in my writing process. Whereas some editors might be a little caught up in their want of validation and "my way or the highway," Marg leaves her ego at the door, her focus being the work, the story and helping the writer. I've learned far more about good solid writing from Marg than I ever did in college. I'm so glad to have found her. She has been the perfect complement to my growth as a writer.

Maureen demonstrated excellent editorial skills applied to the analysis and editing of my initial eBook. Maureen delivered thorough results including suggested changes in punctuation, grammar, words and phrasing. As a result of her effort, I am confident that my book's final version will be perceived as very professional and plausible.

Melissa is an amazing editor. She's very professional, asks just enough questions to make sure you're both on the same page for the project, and is straightforward with her feedback.

Tony generated a very professional resume. He formatted it so that it looked great both on the printed page and on screen. Tony spent time on the phone with me gathering the salient points--education, experience, skill sets, honors and awards, publications, etc., then drafted a resume which I was able to review and edit as needed. Happily, Tony did such a great job displaying and emphasizing my credentials that I did not have to change anything! I was invited to participate in both phone screenings and in-person interviews. Tony acted as job coach to prepare me for those events through role playing exercises where he was the interviewer and I was the interviewee. During these sessions, Tony helped me become aware of my phone presence, made suggestions regarding my delivery, and recommended that I stay on topic when answering questions, yet expand to emphasize my expertise in the field, when necessary. I am extremely pleased with Tony's abilities as a resume writer and interview coach. I know that you will find this to be the case as well. Tony's methods resulted in my landing a new job. I have been working there for six months. I know that Tony's efforts and instruction helped me get my position.

Tamara is an excellent choice for your graphic design needs. She is easy to communicate with and understands the needs of her customers. She did a great piece for my wedding and I couldn't be happier.

My 5 and 7 year old sons have taken art classes with Cheryl (Mrs. B) for two years. They have learned so many concepts that I could never teach them. They bring home projects that include drawing, watercolors, sculpting, 3D crafts, and many more. She has so many creative ideas I always wonder what they'll be doing next. She also teaches them about famous artists, cultures, and art history. Her work is outstanding.

Carolyn has been a book coach, editor and midwife for me. She first helped me to find the book inside me, gently encouraged that process of discovery, guided me to put words to paper in the form of a book proposal, and finally, offered guidance to secure an agent and publishing contract. She is a unique combination of nurturing direction, organization and planning and creative inspiration, all packaged in her sweet and gentle ways. Carolyn has given me wings amd inspiration when I couldn't find my own. My ucoming first book would not have happened without her.

He took on my first book, A Junkies Nightmare, Coming Clean and did an incredible job. Not only is he professional and personable he's incredibly talented and affordable. If you need an editor, look no further, you've found the perfect guy for your job. I will be returning to him again and again, I feel like I found a partner more then just an editor.

I never would have had my book published without Lisa’s help. She immediately saw problems (and solutions!) that had not occurred to me. She worked closely with me, reading and editing my work, and showing me how to develop my original idea into a much fuller, more interesting project…one that publishers would respond to. And, happily, they did. I recommend Lisa without reservation; my experience with her was both really valuable and enjoyable.
