In all my years working in publishing and marketing, I'd say Joan Gale Frank is one of the most creative and intuitive people I've ever worked with. She was an integral part of our team at Sanctuary Publications, consistently contributing her vast marketing experience, pitch-perfect editing and writing with a style and depth that often surprises. One of the values I most admire is her ability to listen carefully to what you need and respond with perfect advice. I have referred her to many clients over the years and continue to work with her on my own writing projects because of her ability to take any topic she's asked to write about, and heighten it to a new, exciting level.
971 Media has been instrumental in launching my website. I was so pleased with the work done that I have continued to use 971 Media as my web master and for various projects including marketing for my site. What truly makes 971 Media stand out more than any company I've worked with is that David Lemke, 971 Media Owner, not only does the project at hand, but truly cares about your company and is invested in it's success. I appreciate all of the hard work that 971 Media has done to help make www.FlairWalk.com the site that it is!
Erick did a fantastic job editing a manuscript for one of the writers I publish. The manuscript, a large historical fiction novel, was a difficult piece of material to work through yet, Erick still finished on time. He stayed in touch during the project so I knew how things were going. Erick also offered other services which I may use in the future. He has a great understanding of the writing and publishing mechanics which helps a lot in projects like the one I gave him to proof read. I really am pleased with the work he did. I will use him again I am sure of this!
Jim is a detailed-oriented editor and provides great guidance for your writing. His years of experience helps you to find better ways to communicate and his thoughtful comments give you the reasons behind his suggestions. I highly recommend working with Jim.
My family wanted my 89 year old Dad to write a biography of his life. We initially tried to accomplish this via a College Student but that ended up failing miserably because of poor commitment and writing skills. I leveraged Thumbtack to reach Ideascape (MacKenzie and Doug Freeman) for professional help writing this book. Currently, we are about 75% complete and they have done an outstanding job. They are extremely thorough (plenty of research) and have a great voice for my father (written in 1st person). Each family member (especially my Dad) has enjoyed working with them and their demeanor is professional but also approachable. The overall project is expensive (to me) but in fairness you get what you pay for. This is my first experience with writing a book and it has been eye opening regarding how much work is required. Overall, we are very happy with Ideascape and unless something goes drastically wrong (wrapping this project up) we would hire them again. We also would recommend them for a biography project as outlined above.
Super fast super friendly!
When I first started with Joshua, he sounded like he really knew his stuff. After 2 months, I didn't see much growth, but he assured me it would be coming. Soon enough around mid month three, I started to get quote requests. I definitely plan to continue working with Josh for a long time!
John has written content for our clients (RightNow Inc) for over 5 years and is an excellent wordsmith. His cost is fair and his work delivery always on time. I would highly recommend John for your copywriting, editing or ghostwriting project. David

New To Thumbtack
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.
