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.

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've worked with Wildwood Editing for over a year now. She edits all of my online content, weekly newsletters, website, and books. She finds things I didn't even know were things to look for and I am grateful for her keen eye. It's so nice knowing when I send words out into the world they have been combined through and my voice maintained.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

About

I listen to my clients and try to find out what separates their product or service from others, and what benefits that will have to their potential customers. Then I write something clear, compelling and unique--to make sure your customers know why you're special, too.

About

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.

Proven results.
