While laboring through the final draft of our first co-written book, my wife and I decided to hire an editor to help us polish the work and make it more presentable to the public. We’re both experienced journalists and are therefore well aware that everyone needs an editor, and that no work is exempt from the need for a sharp editor’s eye and pen.
Dave asked the tough questions; suggested twists, additions and approaches we’d not thought of, and made us better writers in the process. Thanks to Dave, I’ve remembered writing tips long forgotten and have a bunch of new arrows to deploy from my writer’s quiver on future projects.
Dave made our book better, our writing clearer, more precise and accurate, and he even deftly navigated the linguistic landmines coaching my British wife and me on which spellings to use. It was clearly a labo(u)r of perspicacity, if not genuine concern.
He’s also a genuinely good guy, fun and smart. Hire him. We’re certainly glad we did.
