I was in need of major help with editing of my book. Monica stepped in and made sure everything was correct. From our first conversation to the end of the editing process she listened and made sure everything was to my specifications. She was even gracious enough to edit the back cover for me when I needed it. I will be using Monica for all my future projects.
Delores did the copy-editing for my book. She did a thorough job, making me aware of errors and giving me suggestions on how to make my book better. She is extremely professional and helpful. I learned so much from her as she is filled with amazing ideas for promoting and publishing. I would recommend Delores to anyone, she is a great editor!
Laura helped me with an essay I was writing for admission into the nursing program at UW Parkside. She was very quick with her responses back to me and had a lot of wonderful feedback to help me better my essay. I really appreciate the time she took to help me.
DML Editing and Writing was the perfect partner for me. I'm in the process of editing my first book and from the onset, they were personable, professional, transparent and most importantly, you can feel they cared. They were willing from the get-go to work with my personal situation. Especially being someone new to this writing world, you want to have confidence in the team your aligning yourself with to help in completing your work. DML Editing has done just that. I will be requesting their assistance for future editing projects!
Chaudhry did the excellent work of review writing on my kindle books and also helped me a lot in getting excellent quality of reviews through review swapping. I will highly recommend him to all new clients for getting chance of availing his great reviews' writing services.
I have worked with Steve on a variety of projects, as a contributor to his anthologies (he's a fine editor) and as a collaborator on stories. He has always displayed a great attention to detail and produces excellent work (check out his "Blue Kingdoms" series where he has designed covers, edited others and contributed fiction. First rate work and a perfect trifecta of skills). When I developed the idea for a serial fiction series, Steve was one of two writers I asked first to contribute.
I have hired Molly as both a copywriter/editor and as a researcher/indexer. In all of these roles, she brings stunning attention to detail and refreshing creativity. Highly recommended!
I’m writing this letter to recommend Sarah Dorfman for your current employment opportunities. When I was the Marketing Manager at The Wharf Marketplace in Monterey, California, I hired Sarah to write for the website, menus, and marketing materials. She is an excellent writer and detailed editor; a combination I was having trouble finding. After working with Sarah on those projects I realized her skills in other areas that I was becoming too busy to handle. She set our social media in motion and was not only successful at growing our likes and followers, but she was great at starting conversations and getting people to interact with our brand. At the time The Wharf Marketplace was a new business and Sarah had a major role in helping us stay on brand, gain loyal customers, earn the respect of fellow business partners. Sarah was very valuable to me, and I’m confident you would have the same results. Sincerely, Carrie Crook Former Marketing Manager for The Wharf Marketplace, Monterey, California. 2013-2015
Joe was co-author and editor on MY LIFE IN FOCUS. He helped me get my true voice on the page, was receptive to comments, helped design page layouts, and didn't stop working until the job was done right. He also handled all social media marketing for the book, including creating and managing multimedia Facebook posts. Joe's work was professional, punctual, and invaluable. - Gianni Bozzacchi, author, MY LIFE IN FOCUS: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNEY WITH ELIZABETH TAYLOR AND THE HOLLYWOOD JET SET
Retired English instructor of high school and post secondary levels, and published author is willing to accept proofreading and editing jobs from other writers.
I've been in the book publishing business since 1987 and continue to flourish in this industry despite its current state of flux! I've been an in-house acquisitions editor at a major trade publishing house in NYC; in fact, I worked in the editorial departments of Putnam/Perigee, Basic Books, and HarperCollins. I have a Certificate in Book and Magazine Publishing from the NYU Summer Publishing Institute. I've been a bestselling author and done extensive publicity and platform building for my books. I have a degree in Latin, minor in English Linguistics and Grammar, and studied line editing and structural editing from working with top NYC editors. I've ghostwritten and done developmental editing on many bestsellers including New York Times bestsellers. I have testimonials from many name-brand clients. I do not take on clients unless I feel I am the right person for them. I am motivated by the desire to help other people create books that will change the world for the better. I never give 100 percent; I always give more. Going above and beyond is just the way I'm wired. Hence, I'm selective about the projects I'll take on. I work within people's budgets and with where they are, right now, in the process. If I can't help you, I'll do the best I can to hook you up with a highly qualified professional I trust. I don't make recommendations lightly. I get to be creative all day long, work with a variety of people who are passionate about helping others, and I'm never, ever bored. What's more, I get to know that every day, whatever I'm doing, I've spent my time doing work that benefits other people and helps me do my very small part in making the world a better place. Job satisfaction? As Nigel of Spinal Tap might say, "It's an 11."
I am an experienced writer and editor. If you can't figure out exactly what to say, I can say it for you! If you've written something, but want to make it better or more effective, I can change it from wimpy to powerhouse! If you are not a native English speaker/writer, I can review your document and make sure it is in correct English. Whether it's an email, a letter, a script, a manuscript, or policies and procedures manuals, I can help you say what you mean. I specialize in clear and understandable plain English.
I have experience writing about and proofreading/editing a wide range of topics in a variety of styles, including blog posts, SEO, newsletters, print promotions and more. My skills include adhering to deadline schedules, organization and attention to detail. I have a B.A. in Communications from Marquette University.
