I loved You More“His overall customer service was excellent, from our first conversation to his quick replies to my emails. He said he usually beats his deadlines and he lived up to that, returning it 2 weeks early which was a lifesaver for me! Most important, he brought my book to the next level and I had the ability to accept his editing changes or decline them. I think I only declined two as all others were spot on! I would definitely recommend him and use him, again, if I ever go down the path of writing another book. Bravo & Thank You!”

—Regina Rossi Valentine

—Jacob Merwin

“Kevin was an amazing asset for me. He took the rough areas of my manuscript and made them flow much better in terms of sentence structure, word choice, and useful suggestions. His proofreading made a remarkable difference
