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.

    As a new writer, I was looking for a friendly editor that could walk me through the process, and Jason delivered. He is easy to communicate with via email, and has provided helpful edits and comments on my writing that I believe have improved my writing in general. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.
