Dr. Dryk was instrumental in helping me complete my master's capstone to complete the degree. She was very thorough in identifying areas where the writing could be improved as well as correcting grammatical errors in a very long document. Thank you very much!
As someone who has never tried to have anything I've written professionally edited, with the hopes of publishing, the steps after writing were confusing, intimidating, and somewhat daunting. After speaking with Melanie at great length about what I was looking for, I knew I had found the person I wanted to work with. She's made the entire process more pleasant than I had imagined, works hard, offers great advice, and genuinely seems to have the best interest of the project at heart. Couldn't have made a better choice.
Ive worked with Cyndee on several projects and shes a delight to work with, is very professional, and an excellent writer. I feel her rates are reasonable and she meets deadlines. What more can you ask for? Its always a pleasure doing business with her.
As a first time novelist Dr. Bob is the editor for me. He is professional, precise, educated and a great teacher. He is performing 3 progressive edits on my very rough manuscript. I feel very blessed.

She is awesome!!!! Probably one of the easiest people I've ever worked with and by far exceeded my expectations.
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.
Tony is a great consultant, he really took the time to understand our business and has an impressive background that he demonstrated for our case.

In the past, I have worked privately as a Court Reporting Transcription Proofreader on both criminal and civil transcripts for Brazos County court reporters for about four years. I have also written about seven or eight plays a couple of which have won local awards, so I am used to editing dialogue material. I obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas (Class of '74), with a minor in English and worked as a temporary Proofreader of Flight Manuals for Continental Airlines in Houston before returning to Bryan (where I grew up) in 1991. I am now married and live with my wife in Mumford, about ten miles southwest of Hearne, Texas. I am always happy to meet with an author or scriptwriter to look over their manuscript or dialogue transcript and give them my professional opinion of their work. I have to consider the project and the reasons for it, working one-on-one to determine if I can and should prepare an original document for the client, ghostwrite or if he or she really just needs help in finding the right direction to continue writing on their own. Clients are requested to provide a proof copy of either notes for the project or a copy of the original document, itself, so that it can be marked for editing. Rates vary, but I can only accept and examine hard copies of documents from the author and from no one else, except an authorized representative or agent on his or her behalf. Sorry, I cannot accept scripts or documents on computer disks or emailed to me. However I can be contacted, either at my email address or by phone, to arrange a meeting. Once that is done, I will do whatever I can to bring the work to fruition and to transfer the imagination and skill of the author to the page.
