  1. #1 Stephanie J. Beavers Communications

    (41 reviews)

    Kimberly W.

    Stephanie has helped me revise and finalize several cover letters so far. I am very pleased with her work and it is great working with her. Her turn around is quick, the quality of her work is excellent and she is very knowledgeable in both the technical aspects of writing/grammar and how to craft a professional cover letter. I feel very lucky to have found her and will continue using her for my job hunt and other writing needs.

  3. #3 KEMPS Consulting

    (14 reviews)

    Erica G.

    Kate is easy and fun to work with. She has an intuitive approach. She is a good listener. I interviewed 6 writers (1 in Canada, 5 in US) before talking with Kate and I decided to go with Kate for 3 reasons: 1- her high-quality is worth more than its cost. 2 - she leaves nothing on the table, she is going to write it out and in a timely manner; without delay. 3 - her interview for my bio write-up was so thoughtful. Meaning, at one point I said to Kate, "I was hoping you were going to ask me about that." I've included a picture of my bio. The best part about working with Kate on my bio is that she aspires to capture your story and her writing technique is so good that whatever your story her writing adapts. Just know, if you work with Kate she is going to nail it! #thumbtack

  6. #6 Mark Vanderpool, Prose Surgeon

    (7 reviews)

    LA C.

    Mark Vanderpool was professional and understanding about my book. He accepted my request to have an introduction call prior to the possible hire; which I truly appreciated it. This was my first time hiring an editor. This is my first book so I was not at all comfortable with trusting someone with my newborn (manuscript), but it needed to be done. Mark understood and was so kind and patient with all my MANY questions and CONCERNS. He willingly opened up to me about his professional background and vast experiences in this profession which put me in a much needed comfort zone. He finds pleasure in assisting people like us (writers). He embraces new projects/stories. He really does!!! He polished and refined my book. I could tell that he focused on my story and respected my way of writing. He offered advice and shared his opinion about what I may want to think about revising...than he provided an example. He acknowledged major points of my story and provided comments on areas to draw attention to and places where my audience should focus. I recommend Mark Vanderpool for your next project. Awesome Experience! I would definitely hire him again.

    Tammy has been a Godsend. This project came with some urgency in terms of time and quite a bit of unexpected work needed. She has performed with excellence, going above and beyond. She is highly professional, very knowledgeable and gracious in all she does. I recommend her without reservation.

    (3 reviews)

    Dyan K.

    I meet with Judith about three times. I felt this was necessary for me because I am a poor writer, and wanted to see if she understood all the details that I wanted on my sister web site. I felt that she was a excellent listener, produced top quality work, and she worked fast. Her pricing was great, and will hire her for future work!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Smart Solutions

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I've been called “The Fixer” by a client, and it's a moniker I completely embrace. I love getting up each morning and solving problems on behalf of clients. From marketing to branding and content writing, if a client wants to reinvent, improve, or expand her business, I can't wait to create and execute a plan for success. While freelancing and consulting isn't for everyone and some months are tougher than others, I relish the independence and flexibility this work affords. I've been fortunate to meet and work with smart and generous people. This work has made me a better professional, mentor, and entrepreneur. I can't imagine doing anything else.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Necessity is the mother of invention, or that's what I've heard. In this case, it's true. I've had the entrepreneurial bug before and each time been head-hunted back into the corporate world. Following an emotionally devastating layoff from a nonprofit I'd given my heart and soul to, I decided to launch Smart Solutions to solve creative, marketing, and branding challenges for clients on my own terms. I haven't looked back. I'm lucky to have a strong network of brilliant entrepreneurs, and on those dark days that are tough, they keep me anchored. I've also been fortunate to mentor others and will continue to do so. I believe in the entrepreneurial circle of life; if I can give back half of what my mentors have given me, that's more than I can hope.

    If you needs words - to be written, edited or both, I can do that for you or with you. I have worked with beginning writers, experts who don't write, great storytellers who need strong editing and all by myself, dedicated to make your project sing. With more than 15 published books (from Chicken Soup for the Soul's The Cancer Book to The Intelligent Divorce to The Boy Behind the Door: How Solomon Kool Escaped the Nazis), I have a unique skill set to work with a variety of subjects and personalities.

    Blue Square Writers' Studio

    (18 reviews)

    Hi hired Derrick and Blue Square Writer's studio for the final edit of my vampire novel. The decision to hire was based on both his professional response to my initial post, as well as the reasonable price he offered for the service. And I don't mind saying that I definitely got my money's worth from his edit. He covered the basics, correcting my grammar and spelling, but also provided positive critical feedback regarding character and story development, helping me to shape my manuscript into a strong and marketable book. I look forward to working with him on future projects, and I can absolutely recommend his service for writers of fiction, like myself.

    Writer/Editor/Speaker David Nazario

    (4 reviews)

    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!
