Steve Ullestad did a excellent job reformatting by book and he even pointed out & corrected editing errors that I missed. He was fast & accurate. I look forward to working with him on my next book as well as him editing my wife's novel. I highly recommend him‼️
I highly recommend him. He was very professional and went out of his way to help with me with editing my book. What impressed me the most was how quickly he was able to accomplish what I needed and how he continued to help me after his job was finished. He really cares about each project which is great!
My experience working with Scott has been nothing short of exceptional! I needed some editing work to be performed at the last minute (within 2 days) on my thesis that I was working on. Scott was extremely responsive and was able to review and edit the sections that I needed within the specified timeline. He even went the extra mile to review my entire document! He had additional recommendations for me after his final review, which I really appreciated. I was then able to turn in a pristine document, which I am truly proud of. Scott's editing work is excellent! Thanks, Scott!

The best experience I've ever had working with a proof/copy reader. Superb in quality and professionalism, highly dependable. I only have good things to say about them!
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.
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.

Hello! I am a graduate of Haverford College and an aspiring travel writer! I was recently accepted into a NASA program in Houston to fly an experiment in a zero-gravity aircraft. I also lived in a remote area of the Altai Republic, Siberia for a month and a half on a self-designed volunteer project for a wildlife conservation organization. I am a lover of how words are used as tools to craft emotion and personality and have been writing as a hobby since elementary school. I was placed into the highest reading classes all through grade school and have more notebooks than I care to count at this point. In second grade, I had my school bind little "books" for me that I'd written and later on in school, I helped run the school literary publication. These days, I'm doing some tutoring, helping my dad run the family business, and going on the occasional reckless travel adventure. As an aspiring writer, I'm always looking for more work in writing! And that's where YOU come in! Whether you need a writing tutor, an enthusiastic editor of lengthy papers or someone to write some copy for your business, I am more than happy to provide my services and my love of words. Besides my love of writing and travel, I am a scientist and have been fencing at the national level since I was seven. I've run headlong into freezing glacial lakes, stood on the rim of a volcanic crater in Costa Rica above the clouds, hiked remote islands in Maine, camped next to moose in the wilderness and waded through muck in the Florida Everglades with large gators nearby. Someday, I want to live in a tree-house of my own construction. I love visiting new places, trying weird new foods and camping in the woods where I'm not supposed to. Let me know how I can be of service to your writing project, business or anything else that might require writing expertise. I can provide my resume upon request. Looking forward to hearing from you! Best, Alice
