Kristie has been very professional with her work! She has great ideas, insights and always responsive to emails and questions. She is very communicative and great to work with!!
I decided to have him do some editing. He, accurately, recognized that my book proposal was too long. I'd been misled by one that said a proposal might be 100 pages. He reduced my overly long chapter descriptions to about a single sentence each. After that, I had to focus on writing so I haven't employed him for a while, but I may do so in the future. When I saw the firve stars I was influenced by the Amazon practice making five stars very rare. I was surprised to see "good" opposite five stars. Was it there before? I'd imagine most editors might not accomplish what he did and have tried to describe that. I think your rating scale needs work since it seems to me to limit the top rating to just "good." and Mr. Munkvold was better than that.
In my entire experience of living in 8 countries, studying several languages, and attending as many universities, Tristan struck me as one of the most learned and sublime teachers ever. His ways of approaching the most intricate subjects is simply amazing. A truly eye-opening experience! I am really grateful.

At Worth Reading, we have a passion for the written word and an eye for detail. For our clients, that translates to differing things, depending upon the type of work submitted. Manuscripts: We offer our clients a sentence-by-sentence read-through to check for readability, flow, and proper writing mechanics. If the work is fiction, we offer opinion on character believability also. Moreover, for those whose work is edited by our firm, we offer a venue for promotion (if self-publishing) through our sister site, Literary Adventures. For those searching for resume writing, we can work with what you've already written, checking for grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors; or, we can help you build your resume from the ground up. In need of academic assistance? We can assist with formatting in APA or MLA, research to provide usable facts from reliable sources, checking for potential plagiarism, and, of course, work on writing mechanics.

With over six years of service in the journalism industry, I have a very diverse writing background and top-notch editing skills. I really enjoy what I do. Although I offer a wide variety of services, I specialize in editorial, business & web content.
Attention to detail, classic knowledge of grammar, and a comprehensive grasp of the big picture are the three strong points that I bring to the table with my writing. The ultimate goal of my writing is to always create a clear and understandable communication, something that succeeds in expressing any fact, argument, theme, or feeling that needs to be shared.
From a young age, I fell in love with the power of words to shape and inform meaning. I studied primarily literature, writing, and cultural studies in both my undergraduate and graduate programs. In my freelance work, I edit primarily academic and business documents, as well as web and advertising copy, for a variety of high-profile editing and proofreading companies. In addition, I also edit for independent clients seeking my services to ensure that their writing is clear, concise, powerful, and communicative of their intended style and message. As a professional editor, my particular area of preference is book-length manuscripts that require editing prior to being submitted to a literary agent and/or (self-)publishing. I will work with you to determine your specific needs, providing extensive editing using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word. Additionally, I utilize the Comments feature to provide detailed comments that are meant to strengthen your writing, point out discrepancies or areas in need of clarification, and offer suggestions. What distinguishes my services from other editorsÃ¢ÂÂ services is that I am available for Skype consultations to discuss any questions that you may have. In my editing work, I consider myself to be a true partner in helping to ensure that your writing is the most powerful, clear, and expressive that it can be, all while editing for grammar, spelling, syntax, and organization.
