I have worked with many editors and proofreaders and Dr. Marti clearly stands out as the best. If I could give more stars, I would have. She is thoroughly professional and competent. She made significant improvements in a manuscript that I just submitted to a journal. I have also examined her editing work on one of my student’s 140-page dissertation. The members of the dissertation committee observed and commented on the significant increase in the readability and grammatical correctness of the manuscript after she had edited the document. The quality of her work is outstanding.
Dr. April Michaud is a very thorough and gifted editor and writer. After reviewing her profile on Thumbtack and working with her from start to finish on my resume, she is what she states. She honest, friendly, and gives helpful suggestions. I highly recommend her work and eye for details.
I brought Sally in a bit late in the process of publishing my first novel. While I had a good editor already, I'm a firm believer in having multiple sets of eyeballs involved. Sally caught a number of things we had missed. She also hooked me up with an amazing designer (interior and cover) she works closely with. My first novel is far better for Sally's involvement. Her rates are reasonable and she's worth every bit of what she charges, and then some.
Highly recommend Petrena Wilbur as an editor. She makes clear comments and suggestions on my writing and then she gives the reasons that justify her comments and suggestions. It is obvious to me that her suggestions will improve my work and make me a better writer. I look forward to working with her again. Jesse Carrillo
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
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.
Carole is a talented lawyer and writer and is a source of great knowledge and insights regarding life and business.
Vincent is the most professional writing editor I have ever seen. I went through quite a few writing editors before I met Vincent, and I have to say that the detailed service Vincent provides obviously tops. Vincent is also very fast, and always keep the work down before deadline. I highly recommend.
I've been using Erin to edit my novels since early 2013. I've had two previous editors who were very capable, but Erin's skills are off the chart. She is easy to work with and handles each new job quickly. She has edited four of my novels and will edit many more...as long as I write them.
Morgan is excellent! She's helped me edit a number of essays, and has a great eye for organization and coherence. She also returned notes to me in a very timely manner. She's a pleasure to work with, and far more concise in her feedback than other editors I've encountered. Additionally, Morgan's social media abilities are exemplary, and something I plan to take advantage of in the nearby future.

In my editing I am very adept at scanning a page of text and finding the things that don't fit (mistakes, typos, flow issues). I am also very passionate about working with writers to use the text they have created in order to achieve the best possible end result. As a writer, I use my love of language, my keen observational skills as an artist and art historian, and my wry sense of humor to convey my personality and get a message across.
