Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called Tuesdays with Deborah or better known to us as A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers. She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, The Art of Working for Yourself which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.
It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments. Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film. She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly. I
I love being a creative, but Im horrible at self-promotion. Michelle is a natural at bringing out the best in others and helping them stand out from the crowd. She has been my chief editor and general promotions manager for almost 5 years now and I dont know what Id do without her. She initially presented me with a promotional plan, calendar, and a strict to-do list and because I listened to her advice, I can say that the sales for my music and book have increased by at least 30%! I only know this because she presents me with stat reports on a regular basis all I know is that I have been busier than ever with one speaking or singing engagement after another. My motivational speaking career is also finally taking off and I have been invited to speak at charity events all over California. My story is getting out there and I couldnt be happier. She asks me often, How are you doing? Can you handle more? To which I say, Yes, bring it on! Heres one example, while planning a personal vacation in Italy this last summer, I knew about a music festival and told Michelle about it. One call from her and I was booked to perform live on the stage in Italy! Im sure there were more negotiations behind it than that, but all I had to do was show up. My advice? Be good at what you do and let Michelle be good at what she does, helping you shine.
As an editor, I found Casey to be a highly capable writer who meets deadlines, responds to communication quickly, and delivers every time.
Katrina is a consummate professional. When I wrote my book she brought to the project the eye of a professional editor as well as the heart of an enthusiastic writer. Katrina was exceptionally easy to work with and I heartily recommend her.
Have worked with Barbara on many writing projects over the past 20 years. She's an excellent writer, editor, and teacher! Very detailed, observant, and nuanced.
I retained Ms. Daniel to edit my manuscript for publishing. This was a manuscript of poetry and abstracts that would require an editor a great deal of patience. While I didn't have a deadline to complete this editing task, it would require her professionalism and constructive thinking. She tackled the issues with a very positive and forward thinking approach. She expanded the readership for the manuscript dramatically and addressed each poem and abstract in such a way that I was awed by her creativeness. We maintained excellent communication throughout the entire process, even though we were 1500 miles apart. My manuscript is now ready for publication and the publisher is very impressed with the high quality of the manuscript which I credit Ms. Daniel.
Fran did an outstanding job in creating my resume and cover letter. She is very professional to work with and is highly detail oriented. Fran took my so so resume and turned it into outstanding. I'm confident that my resume will produce interviews. I highly recommend Fran to anyone looking for a professional resume writer/editor.
This very special writer,teacher, instructor, and editor is my guru who never misleads, always exercises thoughtful response, with an incredible editor's eye to showing...not telling!...me how exactly to improve my voice, my pov, my tendency to overwrite, leading me patiently along until I can do it naturally by myself. When she pointed out to me that my childhood with my brother seemed like it was twenty years long, I knew she was telling me I could eliminate some of those tales and choose the best of those vignettes to polish. Learning under her guidance is a pleasure I look forward to, having experienced numerous on-line essay classes with her direction over small groups that bond well together. My memoir is now, in second draft, much improved but more, Sheila has led me to better understand my own story, thus helping me better understand myself and my true place in the story. I recognize this gifted teacher as a master of her craft, and above all else, is a confidence builder unmatched in my experience. I readily see that I am a better writer because she has shown me how. Mine is a great story to tell and Sheila is helping me to do it. Publishing no longer seems a pipe dream. Together we'll get this done. You have no idea how far I've come, thanks to Sheila Bender. I can trust her with my memoir.
