Louisa edited my non-fiction book, LEAVING THE WILD. She excelled in every sense, performing the edits with precision and staying true to the writing style. And she did it quickly, finishing ahead of deadline.
I have been a freelance writer for a number a years. My writing has mostly been focused within the fly fishing industry. I have written for several newspapers, magazines and on a continual basis for a blog for a large national fly fishing company. Recently, I wrote my first book. I used Carly to edit and proof my book. I found her extremely helpful in all facets of editing from proofing to grammar usage as well as providing suggestions and guidance for sentence and paragraph structure. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend her services. Reggie H
I was referred to Deborah Drake through a publishing company called Central Recovery Press. After spending 5 minutes on the phone with her, I was hooked. Her positive energy radiated through the phone. I flew to Seattle from Chicago to meet her and we spent 3 intensive days working through my manuscript. We spent hours talking through some of my life experiences in the memoir and she gave the writing wings. We have teamed up together to do a weekly blog and co-author my book. She is beyond talented and inspirational to work with.
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
As an editor, I found Casey to be a highly capable writer who meets deadlines, responds to communication quickly, and delivers every time.
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.

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 looked for an editor who had a knowledge of the law to do a tech edit of my novel because Iâm not a lawyer. Brian Roberts did a terrific job. He more than met my expectations. He unearthed those paragraphs that needed a re-write to become understandable. He gave characters voice in their own dialect. He could be counted on to finish chapters in a timely fashion. I would seek his services for future projects.
Excellent writer, command of English grammar, takes direction well. Imaginative, creative, and on-time with deadlines.
Judith was both editor and publisher of my book in 2012. Her technical skills for the page were exceptional. She has a fine eye for detail and for artistic look. Her keen sense of story made the book better on every level. The prospect of getting a book to print and to e-reader readiness was daunting for this author. Judith handled it all professionally and with good humor. Tasks were accomplished on time. The finished product has garnered many compliments. I'm very happy to be working with her on a second book.

My job is to make you and your writing look good. I have spent more than thirty years honing my eye for detail and my ear for the right words and rhythm. I believe in treating you and your text with respect. I work with companies, organizations, and individuals to carefully edit and rewrite content tailored to their needs. I perform meticulous and mindful editing of academic articles and books, self-help books and memoirs, history books and historical novels, business documents, and technical documentation. In addition to correcting spelling and grammatical errors, I help make your text easier to understand so that readers do not stumble over words, phrases, or ideas. Text that is clear inspires confidence and trust and helps you better connect with your audience. I pride myself on being professional and respectful.
While copy-writes are respected, our need to understand technical books can exceed our ability to remain conscious, listening to them makes them instantly more accessible, and much easier to understand. With the right "Text-to-speech" utilities, the clarity of almost any subject matter can be made open to you.
