See an editor's bio for feedback provided by the editor's clients.
“I searched the internet for novel help and no other site was as well thought-out and rich with information on their editors as yours. When I did get to speak with a coordinator, she was extremely helpful. I've received several samples from editors that I chose and they all handled themselves professionally. Because of the depth of their talent, choosing one was no simple task.” - L. Stein
"The network returned my E-mail request immediately and informed me that I could expect to hear from several editors within 24 hours. I did! Very professional response. Three editors contacted me within 24 hours.They were each straightforward about the types of service they could provide. It was easy to find their profiles to sort through their professional writing and editing experience. I was impressed with each of their profiles in terms of breath of experience, writing skills, and professional involvement in the publishing world. Outstanding sample edits. It took me two long days of intense deliberation to choose one over the other. What a blessing to be offered multiple exceptional choices!" - Ralph Vardis
"I am a novice in the writing/editing/publishing market and this maiden voyage with your network overall was seamless, so much so that I have already recommended you to a colleague who has had nightmare experiences with so-called editors."
"I wanted to thank you for providing an awesome pool of editors for me to choose from." - Ryan D. Eldridge
"Great service, quick turnaround, tremendously helpful. Thanks to whomever runs the business, and thanks for hiring Val. Hope you'll do whatever you need to to keep her happy!" (On file with network coordinator)
"As a first time author I was quite aware of the possibility of being taken advantage of, but it was quickly clear that the services provided were not only legitimate, but highly professional. The frightening process of handing my first book over to someone to edit was made much less daunting by finding your network to use, and then by being lucky enough to work with Marlo."

"I offer a heartfelt thank you to Book Editing Associates for providing a mix of highly qualified editors. I was thoroughly pleased with Beth’s services." - Michelle Richardson
"We will use Madge for all our indexing whenever she is available. It seems strange to be writing this, since I am a member of the network, too (currently on hiatus to do this work). But I know from experience on both sides of the fence that network members are always the best. We also hired a copyeditor for these books through the network, and she is outstanding, too." - Faith Brynie, editorial director, The Healthy Travel Company
"Network coordinator, I wanted to thank you for providing an awesome pool of editors for me to choose from." - Ryan D. Eldridge, VP Business Development, Financial Freedom Controls

"[H]e actually read what I was saying. In doing so, he was able to edit (by rephrasing, adding/deleting) my paper to make it more concise and professional. He returned my work quickly, and provided as much feedback and interaction as I needed. I would also add that I could have found a cheaper price elsewhere, but experience with on-line editing has taught me that getting the cheapest editing isn't worth the money." - G. Mahoney (contact info on request)

They both represented your service well! Thanks." - Bart Borsky

"I am most impressed with the network—and my consultant. The process is handled in a most professional manner, and the editing and suggestions were right on target." - Eve Carr, freelance writer
"First I must mention that had it not been for the service I would not have found Michael Carr and would still be trying to get my ms into a viable form. Your editor profiles were informative and the response times were very prompt. What he has done with my ms is amazing. At the outset of my project I had thought that my ideas and imagination were enough. Boy was I wrong! What Michael started with was a rough stone that he threw into a tumbler. What emerged was something more shiny and polished. I got so much more than a fine tuned ms; I got knowledge, and expertise that was willingly given. Michael took the time to teach me, to lead me in the direction necessary to become a more effective and efficient writer. I got more than I ever imagined in terms of the finished product. But even more than that, what Michael took the time to impart to me, to coin a cliché, is priceless. Working with Michael has been an experience that rivals the experience of writing the book. His eyes, his perspective and experience not only made my words better, it has made me better. I will now be able to embark on the next phase, getting my work published, with the confidence and knowledge that my ms is not only ready, but that time effort (and of course money) was invested to make it is as good as it can be." - Thank you Michael, Mark Shaff
"I am impressed with this network. I wasn't expecting such quick response. This system makes it possible for the client to pick the consultant who actually understands the meaning of the client's write up. This enhances quality of the editing work." — J. Cedric Woods, University of Connecticut
"I highly recommend this service." Charles F. Williams, Supervisory Special Agent (Ret), U.S. Dept Homeland Security
