Testimonials

I really appreciate Sam and appreciate his quality of work. I have been working with Sam for a long time now and it is always great to work with him and receive his feedback. His knowledge is appreciated and his expertise is recognized. In my personal experience, I have high anxiety about APA and Sam does a great job providing feedback about what needs to be done. In addition, his works are very efficient. Thank Sam for what you do.

Brany Camacho, Doctor of Nursing Practice graduate student

As an editor, Sam understands my writing style well. He can provide suggestions that significantly strengthen my arguments, whether I’m writing in a standard academic style or my more typical snarky writing backed by references. In addition to making sure my writing is the best it can be, Sam always checks over my references, in a variety of formats.

Case Study 1

I worked with a client submitting a chapter to an academic anthology in Narrative Studies. I had worked with this client several times before, so I knew how to elevate their writing from good to amazing.

Their editor had provided a maximum word length, which my client was very close to and in danger of going over. Going in, I knew that I needed to cut words. I read for grammatical errors, places that might not make sense, and places where a sentence got a bit wordy. Wordiness isn’t grammatically or stylistically incorrect, but I knew that we needed to cut some words. Working with them, we got the word count to the goal the editor had given them while making their arguments stronger at the same time.


Case Study 2

I worked with a non-native English speaker who was working on their final project for a graduate course in nursing. The project also functioned as the paperwork for their school’s institutional review board. There were a few grammatical errors here and there, but nothing that really impeded the meaning that they were trying to express.


Case Study 3

I worked with a self-help publishing company proofreading their 50-day email marketing campaign. They sent me 10 emails at a time, about 11,000 words. The emails were already live, so I knew they needed to be proofed perfectly so the company could maintain their credibility. I returned each batch of emails in within 24 hours.
