John Acker is an excellent editor. His incisive editing helped me with one of the most difficult business writing tasks: writing a cover letter. His timely and generous comments improved my cover letter significantly. Thanks in no small part to his editing work, my newly professional, audience-oriented cover letter allowed me to better demonstrate my skills to the hiring committee. I got the job!
Josh's level of commitment and dedication to my fiction manuscript has 'literally' been impressive. He has detected every punctuation fault, repeated word, and developmental area of opportunity while consistently communicating throughout the process. My editor search was extensive, and I'm certain this extremely lengthy project could not have been better polished by anyone else!
Ron Mead is organized and very prepared to meet any challenge that comes his way. His experience with grammar, which resulted in a published book, helps him to be a great editor.
Don has helped me launch my personal brand, provide the motivation to write a book, the idea to host a book launch party, has helped my clients with numerous ways in which to improve their marketing, and has provided true mentor and leadership qualities that I have been able to learn from and evolve as a person. The man has better and more ideas than anyone I know and his creativity is second to none. What would improve my experience with Don? If he bought my lunch while giving me all this awesome help perhaps?! I don't know...it's hard to say b/c he does everything so well. Spread Good Vibes, Mike Rudd

I started writing short stories and poems in 6th grade. I have improved my vocabulary over the years, and now, being nineteen, I have finally published a poem for the first time. I love writing. It's how I express my feelings or someone else's feelings. I can write poems for anyone and short stories as well. Just tell me what you want! I would love to make one personally for you or for someone you love.
