Your Success is My Success

I'll work for you, no charge, to demonstrate my skills. Editing/proofreading/ghostwriting novels, dissertations, university applications, nonfiction books, eulogies, letters of recommendation, charitable fund requests are all in my domain. I let my clients do the talking. "David far exceeded my expectations. His acute attention to detail is uncanny. He worked on my 210,000 word historical fiction manuscript and delivered to me on time, with great skill and professionalism, and offered insights that will help me make this book ready for market. He was in constant communication, keeping me updated on his progress, and to top it off, he was kind and pleasant. I can't recommend him highly enough. I wish I could give him 10 stars." Gary T. @gtoyn “We had the best experience with David, and we will hire him for future projects. He exceeded our expectations. He’s an amazing editor and writer." Jeridoo Universe ([login to view URL]) I promise you my best effort. Thank you.

David finished on time and in many instances, went beyond the proofing that was required. He did not rush my review either. Great job!
