After talking to Bespoke Editorial I decided that my book was not ready for copy editing. Sabrina suggested that I take my book to a develop editor,or try to get feed back from writing community groups. I went to a writing meet up, and I was not satisfied. All the feedback I got was that the book is too dense. Sabrina explained what this meant and then pitched the idea of a manuscriptevaluator being the strategic decision to do to see if the book was ready for copy editing. From there she recemmended three developmental editors who do manuscript evaluating. She even gave me the rate they would charge.

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

So far, Sharon has been great. She is quite responsive, easy to work with, and her skills are exactly what I'm looking for in editing my manuscript. The fact that she is familiar with my genre and is flexible to work with as well, has put me at ease. I look forward to seeing her complete work and as of now, I can say that I hope to work with her on other work as well. Will update upon completion!

I feel my self lucky that I found her to edit my novel and let me tell you that she went way beyond the boundaries that we drew in our contract to fix my novel. She listened to me carefully, made notes and came back to me with the manuscript which was beyond my expectations. I will recommend everybody to consult before you make your mind to go anywhere else. God bless you Nandhini.

Laura Boyle is an attuned consultant with expertise as a wordsmith and graphic artist. Her writing and editing support and technical skill and familiarity with IT was very helpful in tightening up my website and strengthening my online presence. We are currently working on developing presentations and workshops and I find her solution focused approach and ability to define a task and develop implementation strategies that break large projects into smaller and doable parts very helpful. Laura is a very good listener which when blended with her responsive professional service style results in the production of quality work. As you can gather I am very pleased with the services I have and continue to receive from Laura Boyle and Imagine Communications and highly recommend them.

    About

    Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.
