With apologies to Pliny the Younger, "It is remarkable how one's words are sharpened by judicious use of a red pen."
Remember the speech at the end of the plane ride? No, not the one about staying seated until we reach the terminal. The other one. The one that says, “Thank you for choosing My Airline. We know you have choices when you fly.” You have choices here, too. It’s important for you to know what we think sets us apart from others offering help to writers.
- We know that writing is a very personal endeavor. We aren’t here to judge your premise. Whatever your ideas, we are here to help you get moving and keep moving in the right direction—hence our clever tag line: Functional Fitness for the Written Word.
- We know that writing is hard, and really good writing is really hard. We know that because we have made our living writing, researching and editing in new media and old for over 30 years.
- Our service is personalized. You are always dealing with a principal in the company, not a recent Craigslist hire. If you call us, one of us answers the phone. If you email us, one of us emails you back—and always within 24 hours. Guaranteed.
- Some writer’s services are much more expensive. Others are much cheaper. You need to work with someone with whom you feel comfortable. Someone who understands what you want to do and is working with you to help make sure you accomplish your goals.
- We know you have a choice. Thanks for considering us.
Your first step with us is a free one-hour consultation. Just call or email us, and we'll arrange a time to talk with you.

- Manuscript Review and Recommendations: An expert, honest evaluation of your manuscript.
