Marti is exceptional. She proofread a family history book I am writing and was timely, accurate and very detail orientated. She is also delightful to work with.
I was searching for a makeup artist to do face painting for a fundraising event where there were going to be lots of children. Thank you Thumbtack for putting me in touch with Alicia. She was amazing. She arrived early and was prepared to go before the event started. She brought a book of tatoos for the kids to choose from, which had a wide variety of options. The kids loved her and she was so patient, even with the kids that changed their minds again and again. She made a lot of kids and parents happy... The work she does is amazing... Lots of Ninja Turtles running around town... I highly recommend Alicia for her professionalism, personality and outstanding artwork. Thanks again Alicia
Durann was incredible! I hired her for hair and makeup for my wedding. When she arrived I quickly noticed how friendly she was and she fit right in with the group of girls. It was like having another bridesmaid there. She laughed along with all our jokes, but was also professional. I told her what I was looking for in a makeup style and it blew my mind to see how well she did. Each girl's makeup was unique to her skin tone, eye color, etc. The eye shadow, blush, and lipstick colors all complimented their natural features, and enhanced it all! She brought another friendly woman named Alyssa to do hair. Alyssa fit right in, too. She was open to trying anything and flexible to make changes along the way. She's awesome at braiding and created gorgeous looks. I will definitely book Durann again!! You should too!
Gail was Senior Designer when I was publisher of Sonoma Style Magazine in Sonoma County, California. She had great talent, imagination and judgment, but perhaps what I appreciated most was her work ethic, sense of responsibility, ability to get along and work well with clients and staff, and her always-positive attitude. I have continued to use and recommend Gail for freelance projects since that time. In 2007 she designed a logo and business cards for my company Bridge Medicine & Health, that I still get compliments on.
I loved his feed back, and he stuck to the timeline. He was professional, and helpful. He is currently working on Editing my second book. Thanks you Chuck.
Sally of Inksnatcher was able to get to work editing my book quickly. Going through the self-publishing process is very intimidating the first time around, and I was overwhelmed. She did a nice job editing, but I needed a lot more than that. She was able to provide whatever I needed with her knowledge and experience about all aspects of writing and publishing a book. She also has people available to help with cover design, and anything you need really. She always provided a quick turnaround on the many questions I asked. She guided me through all aspects of publishing my first book, which was a big help, and she is easy to work with.
Sean did a remarkable job on my logo! Very patient and prompt with me. Finished my logo a week ahead of schedule. Will be using him again for my book cover and new logo.
Nick Courtright is a name you should know as a tutor, consultant, editor and supporter. I have a "long poem" that needed someone to help me get my arms around it, and Nick did, by understanding and taking the big picture view. Upon completing it I have returned to Nick for guidance as to self-publishing or submitting to publishers. He is knowledgeable, to say nothing of the important attributes of being an excellent poet, articulate, scholarly. I plan to have Nick's help in assembling poems to submit for publication, for editing, selecting and market analysis. He knows more than I do, and I benefit from that. Bill
Patty has created books, card games, and marketing material for our company for about 8 years. Her work is excellent, she is efficient, fair, and really easy to work with. She is both professional and friendly.
Lisa's work is outstanding. She is a careful editor, an excellent writer, and thoughtful in her revisions. I have not only read her independent work, but currently have her assisting me on a book and several articles.
This is Mostafa Shahat, Account Manager at Homads.com We are very grateful to have Maude on board as our blog writer. Our blog stood out since she joined us. Maude is creative writer with huge experience. Her writing technique is unique. She is always proactive, and suggesting ideas to improve the blog content.
This year I booked Jacqueline to take a few headshot photos for my staff and for use in our media kit. Before showing up, she researched our team and company and came with her own props. Needless to say, everyone was thrilled. After shooting, she provided proofs for us to sort through and, honestly, there were so many GOOD ones that it was difficult to pick. We have never had company headshots taken before, so we didn’t know what to expect, but her professionalism and work far exceeded our expectations.
Very professional! Enjoyed working with Justin on my logo and website, he created fantastic promotional material for my business.
Meaghan edited three books for me. She not only did a great job with the grammar and syntax, but gave some wonderful suggestions. I will definitely hire her for my next project. Brian Newton Fuller Author of The Art of Idiocy, The Art if Idiocier and Life Can't Be Explained With a Spreadsheet
This guy has amazing editing skills. All of his work is top-notch quality. He helped me edit the first edition of a self-published book I wrote. If there is a second edition, I will definitely look him up.
Erin did a very good job of reviewing the synopsis for my latest book. I will consider her for future projects!
For my wedding we initially booked an event coordinator that was supplied with the venue. After a year of a lack of correspondence and care as well as an outright failure to execute on what my wife and I envisioned for our wedding we decided to have Megan take over and coordinate our wedding. Not only did she manage to schedule and facilitate in the days leading up to the wedding, including working with all our vendors and seeking new vendors which offered superior services at a better cost, but also on the day of the event she was constantly ensuring that everything was going accordingly all while making sure the guests, families and wedding party were enjoying themselves. At the end of it all we had an incredibly beautiful wedding and reception which everyone thoroughly enjoyed! Id recommend her services to anyone planning any event.
I hired David to be the editor of my first book, Babies Can Smell Fear. I wanted someone to take my work and make it better without changing my vision. I wanted someone to tell me what did not work in a way to keep confidence high while making the project the best it could be. David accomplished all of that and more. Since I was working on my first book I will admit I did not know fully what to expect or what to do. David walked me through the process and went above and beyond what I asked him to do. He set me up with a design team, helped develop the title and sub title for the book, and answered all of my questions even if they did not fully correspond with his job description. I was very pleased with the final product and so were the Mom's Choice Award judges who awarded my book a Gold level award for Parenting Humor. I know that would not have been possible without David. I highly recommend working with David. He even came to the launch party to celebrate the release of the book.
I've worked with Jonathan Peters since 2008. He has helped me to publish three books and served as my "book shepherd," teaching me about self-publishing and how to achieve #1 Amazon Best Seller status. He also served as the editor and layout director. His ability to write in my "voice" is extraordinary and he makes me sound witty and brilliant.
