For a month and a half Stephanie reviewed my manuscript for story and content. The review was meticulously done. So well in fact, it was an eye opener, which helped me decide whether to send the work to the publisher. I am looking forward to having her review for me again. (I wish I had known about her years ago.)

We met, and I was very impressed. We came to an agreement on price and scope, and I am eagerly looking forward to hearing back from Vincent once he has read my manuscript. My initial response is overwhelmingly positive.

Carol was incredible. She not only copyedited my book manuscript quickly, but her execution was flawless. She took the time to understand and adapt to my writing style, demonstrated a superior command of all the rules of language usage, and maintained a professional yet friendly/down-to-earth demeanor throughout the project. Carol is a true pro. I would absolutely recommend her for any project, and I will definitely request to work with her again when the time comes. Thank you, Carol!

David had responded to a Craigslist post I had made requesting the services of a writer to formulate my artist biography for publicity purposes. Amidst a slew of amateur responses, the professional demeanor in which David initiated our correspondence made me realize he might be the one, but that he would probably be far beyond my budget. I had never had a proper artist biography before and was overwhelmed by the process, but David guided me through with a fool proof, open-ended survey that would help me describe my life experiences as well as my history as an artist in a succinct manner. He assured me that he would know how to edit my lengthy responses since the survey was the same one he'd become accustomed to using for his company as editor-in-chief of MUTE Magazine, and he was right! When I received the final product, I was astonished! David's turnaround time was so prompt, and he was welcoming of any additional edits I had in mind. When I braced myself for the cost of the bio, David surprised me once again by not bursting my budget, and even asking if he could feature me in his magazine! As I've gotten to know David since our chance meeting, I've learned that he is genuinely the professional that he exudes on a daily basis. By hiring him, you will get the quality you desire with no corners cut!

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.

Copy-editing poems is not the easiest job in the world. Ms. Stone, however, has been able to suggest numerous helpful ways to go about it, and, in the end, to spot, note, or correct many parts of my wayward manuscript. I'm most happy with the work, and give a thumbs-up to her savvy and her literary service.
