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!
Shalon recently edited a magazine article for me and did a wonderful job. She gave me excellent advice and turned around the edit very quickly. I am currently in the process of writing a book, and I have already discussed hiring her to do the edit. I would highly recommend Shalon for any writing, proofing or editing work.
It was my pleasure to work with Lorrie from approximately 2010 to 2013. Lorrie was working as a Technical Editor on protocols and clinical study reports and I was a study manager. Lorrie was always professional and kind in her interactions. Her writing recommendations were very helpful and appropriate. I would recommend Lorrie without hesitation.
I have an Bachelor's degree in English with a concentration in writing. My passion in life is everything to do with English; reading, writing, proofreading, editing, etc. I can write anything from technical pieces (manuals, pamphlets, etc) to fiction to persuasive pieces. Further skills include proficiency in blogging, Facebook, and various word processors. I have writing samples available, and these are pieces that I have also edited myself. I also have a resume available.

Over the last 2.5 years, David Gertler has helped me edit a book I am writing about chess. As a philosophy professor, I have had 12 books published in the last decade (mostly new editions of textbooks), and so I have extensive experience with editors, proofreaders, compositors, and so on. Mr. Gertler's work has been exemplary -- helpful, insightful, and prompt. He has done research for me, improved my prose, and noticed apostrophes that were backwards. He has marked up around 35 different chapters (sometimes multiple drafts), totaling several hundred single-spaced pages. I have agreed with upwards of 90% of his suggestions, which might be a record in my experience. He is one of the very best.

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!
