Marti has been great. I have a complex manuscript. My writing style can be too bureaucratic, a result perhaps of too many years in the Australian Public Service. Marti understood clearly what type of revisions I needed. She did the work effectively and expeditiously. Marti has been the best I have used so far. Others I have used have done little more than run a spell checker through my manuscript. Marti was able to advise ways to improve the flow and logic of my arguments. Of course Marti also picked up on the smaller points too. Highly recommended. James Lindsay
I am a published author, but this project was my first dive into self publishing. Sally was instrumental from the quality of editing the manuscript, to the guidance and nudging in self-publishing. I just completed my first self-publishing manuscript. Sally is definitely going to be on my team for my next publishing projects.
Petrena and I just started working together in 2016. So far so good. Her organization and approach will be a key asset to this adventure of writing a book. Her experience with previous publishing was a key facet in my decision. I am looking forward to the ride.
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
Carole Gold showed great interest in my subject and entered into it with zest. She is smart and caring, and as an editor, gave attention to detail like syntax and grammar but also aided me in getting the flow of the work to develop a natural movement. She is responsive, sticking with the task until it has a polished quality. She is truly professional and a real gem.
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.
An amazing editor. Not only shfixed all the Grammer issues I had in my cover letter, but she took a look at my resume and helped me write about skills I had on the resume but did not show in my cover letter. I will definitely be coming back to her again for any editing I will need in the future.
When I first started looking for an editor I was worried about hiring someone who would take my work serious and handle short deadlines. I am so thankful to have found Adolfo. All the work he has done for me has been excellent and exactly what I wanted. He never once complained about the short deadlines and I can count on his editing work improving my writing. Very impressed with him!
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.
