I found Stephanie to be a reliable, invaluable help all along the LONG road to my children's story. She was so patient and kind to me, a novice writer! Her professionalism was outstanding. My story was greatly enhanced by her tactful suggestions. When she made a change I immediately saw how excellent it was! She also has a firm grasp of the structure of our difficult language. The cost of her services was VERY reasonable and I never hesitated to ask her questions, which were promptly answered. I would use her again without hesitation and will gladly answer any questions regarding her expertise. The only drawback was the distance between us in miles. It would have been delightful to have had a nice visit with her over a cup of hot chocolate. (With marsh mellows, of course!) Sincerely, Ruth Foster--(budding author!)
I am an aspiring children's book author and illustrator. Leslie was very generous in offering her time to coach me in her knowledge of the publishing industry. She provided a wealth of information drawn from many years of "hands on" on experience in the industry. I consider Leslie an expert coach in regards to writing, working with publishers and the editing process, networking, sales, strategic planning, event and resume building, and marketing. Other items Leslie helped me with involved building a clear mission statement and philosophy for my book series, the importance of conducting market research for advantage, web site building, social media and the use of youtube, and establishing connections through active marketing. Leslie also critiqued my books and provided valuable feedback. Her feedback involved ways to improve my illustrations, and introducing more character dialogue into my stories. Her tips have been instrumental in the improvement of my books, marketing, and writing style. The coaching offered by Leslie laid out the fundamental building blocks to design and implement a strategic plan for my business. I use her tips and core principles as a continuing guide and source of encouragement. I would highly recommend Leslie as a consultant or coach, and greatly appreciate her efforts to follow up with my on my progress.

Ever since I can remember, Jason has been studying music. A writer, producer, manager, studio extraordinaire, he is everything music. Since we were kids all I can remember is just experimenting, that was the most fun of all because when you are young and you have the same passion as your cousin sitting right next to you, as you experiment with different sounds and styles, you create magic. I will always remember all the times we would stop jamming (him on guitar and myself on drums) and just look at each other like, wow, that was freaking awesome. We always had a chemistry and really I think it's because we just come from the same blood line as our highly talented grandfather who was a very respected drummer in the Delaware County area in Pa. As time went on and we became older, Jason really took off. His dream to open his own studio always stayed in the back of his mind through college and it motivated him and gave him the drive of the musican he is today. The thing about Jason is that he is humble. Sure, everyone wants to get paid but with Jason it's all about the music. He generally just wants to learn off of new artists and their sounds/styles and also give his feedback to them. It's all about bouncing ideas off one another in the studio, that's how the magic happens. Couldn't begin to explain the countless hours staying up listening to tracks over and over but that makes a great producer. I remember the Hobokan, NJ studio session and how accomplished we felt after just a weekend there. We really put in some work but most of all had fun whenever we made music together. Today, Jason would say he still has a lot to learn just because that's how humble he is but I would say he is at his strongest point in his career right now. With his own studio business growing and his ear for catchy music better than ever, I would encourage anyone who was looking for a producer/engineer to take the time and use this guys knowledge. He knows a lot at such a young age and I only wish I could be around more to experience the magic with him.
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. Im new in the business and had some real hangups about paying someone to read my work. Im also pretty thin-skinned even with constructive criticism. Michelle Horn made the process so much easier than I expected. I cant 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 Im 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 didnt 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 didnt hurt very much. That is very important to someone just starting out. Ive leaned that you dont 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've hired Candice 4 or 5 times to help our company write. She's very quick, and accommodating.
Sarah has a very authentic style of writing that projects subject knowledge while simply and successfully engaging readers in whatever it is that she's writing about. She's a "quick study" and is very efficient with her time. Net, net ~ a real pleasure to work with and to have as a member of any internal or external creative production team.
