I hired Michelle to edit a romance manuscript. I love to write, but hate editing. I’m new in the business and had some real hangups about paying someone to read my work. I’m also pretty thin-skinned even with constructive criticism. Michelle Horn made the process so much easier than I expected. I can’t say enough about the experience I had with her. She was professional and friendly. She was considerate of my handicap (hearing impaired), fears, idiosyncrasies, and lack of knowledge and made the task as painless as possible. She worked with me to meet my goals and delivered on time. The editing program she used was uncomplicated which made it easy for me to make corrections or keep what I thought should remain. As an added bonus, she made a character chart that helped a great deal since I’m writing a series of novels with the same characters. She also made a style sheet that I can refer to in the future. Through it all, she was in constant contact with me so I didn’t have to guess or worry about anything. Michelle was also very encouraging. I don't know if that's something editors do, but I thought it was a nice touch to have someone make positive comments. Even her negative stuff didn’t hurt very much. That is very important to someone just starting out. I’ve leaned that you don’t know how good a writer you are until a good editor attacks your work. My manuscript is a hundred percent better because of her eye for detail. Thank you Michelle.

I worked with Elaine regularly over the course of a few years. She was quick to pick up on new technologies, and was very diligent in her work. I was also very impressed with her troubleshooting skills and her ability to work through problems.

Peter helped me to edit my Masters Thesis in time for submission. He was very knowledgeable of apa formatting and offered insights and advice that was helpful in the editing process. His pricing is fair and he was quick with feedback and honored deadlines. He was very professional and great to work with.I appreciate his help and would highly recommend him. IfI go foe my PHD I will be contacting him.

Kristin has helped me edit proposals for jobs, write website copy, as well as revise scripts for video shoots on several occasions. She is very skilled at helping people craft and communicate their message in a clear, concise and engaging way. Highly recommended for any organization looking to polish or craft their words.
