– John


August 6, 2022. I just finished editing Lost Words . . . Found!, an anthology of fiction writing by David A. Page. Dave is an indie author who has written stories about werewolves and vampires, weaved tales of love lost and love found, chronicled the legends of barbarian warriors and sorceress brides, recounted the histories of future worlds, and predicted the futures of societies long forgotten. . . . As it turns out, each of Dave’s stories work together to tell his story, the story of a technicolor creative soul in a monochromatic world. Click here to check out Lost Words . . . Found! on Amazon.com.

What My Clients Say

John was timely, knowledgeable, and responsive. He gave great editing feedback for grammar, punctuation, and positioning, even offering great suggestions that enhanced the verbiage to make a more compelling statement. I would certainly suggest that everyone take a strong look at John when you are looking to hire a great editor for your project.

John provided me with top-notch edits on an article manuscript for an academic journal. Not only did he offer excellent feedback, but he also explained the logic and grammar underlying his suggested edits. I found that really helpful! He was careful to look up industry convention, and his responses were incredibly prompt. You should not hesitate to work with John!

John was extremely crucial to the successful revision of my personal statement, and I am very glad that I chose him for this service. He clearly valued my perspective and protected my message throughout the revision process. I highly recommend his expertise if you are looking for similar guidance from a writing tutor and editor!
