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
Alyssa is great to work with! She has developed a good working relationship with my daughter and my daughter has fun learning with her.
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
Michelle was perfect! Great job of preparing my design logo for printing, and the finished product was even better than I could have hoped for. She went way above and beyond to pick up and deliver my project, even making an extra trip so I could see a sample print before committing to finishing the job. Also she is lots of fun to work with and she has great design suggestions. Mine was a very small job for Michelle, but she spent a lot of time with me and was very good about communicating and keeping me aware of what was happening. I will definitely go back to Michelle with other design projects, and I would recommend Michelle to everyone!! Very happy I found her on Thumbtack!
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.
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.
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.
Marlie has written a variety of items for my design business including newsletters, detailed and unique blogs, co-authoring a book with me, posting to a variety of social medial outlets, and writing press releases. She is articulate, detailed, thorough as well as creative and timely. Marlie is a pleasure to work with.

I am a much published author of professional journal articles, two books, newspaper and magazine pieces and daily newspaper columnist. I also have experience as a magazine and newspaper editor. Higher education degrees include an M.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in English and B.A. in Psychology.
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.
I am willing to take the time to ensure each student succeeds. I check up regularly even after the tutoring sessions are over to confirm a solid understanding of the topic was developed. I do not do work for individuals but instead guide through them the questions and tasks at hand to ensure they are properly approaching the assignment.
