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 “Tuesday’s 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.

With wholehearted confidence, I offer my recommendation for Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, project manager, and essential member of any team. I am the editor-in-chief of ALL IN magazine and its website, allinmag.com, and I had the pleasure of working directly with Lynn on numerous projects during her time at ALL IN. She is an enthusiastic and energetic worker, always bursting with new ideas and skilled at communicating them to the rest of the team. What stands out most about Lynn is the way she becomes the “glue” person in any group; she develops strong relationships with everyone else on the team, unites everyone, and is the key to keeping lines of communication flowing in all directions.

“I love being a creative, but I’m 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 don’t know what I’d 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 couldn’t be happier. She asks me often, “How are you doing? Can you handle more?” To which I say, “Yes, bring it on!” Here’s 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! I’m 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.”

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.

I looked for an editor who had a knowledge of the law to do a tech edit of my novel because I’m 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.

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.
