  • Exceeded Every Expectation

    “As a first time author, I had no idea what to expect. But Marla came MORE than highly recommended, and she exceeded every expectation I had, and stepped up to every task you could throw at her. There is nobody else I would recommend for ANY of your developmental book needs from start to finish.”

  • Does Not Miss Even the Smallest Detail

    “Marla is one of those rare professionals in which ALL details are handled, always. You can provide her with direction, and she does NOT miss even the smallest detail. If you ask her to do it, it WILL be done—and very likely it will exceed your highest expectations. This is never an insignificant skill, but when you’re calling on an editor or project manager for your written project, it’s imperative that you find someone with THIS elevated standard in exhaustive, consistent quality and care.”

    Jennifer Tyson
    Owner of design firm Left-Right Collaborative
  • Amazing Results

    “I hired Marla to edit my fifth book. The results were amazing! The best part about Marla is that she is an editor who can not only correct the words on the page but understands how it all fits into the chapter and the book. Her ideas were fantastic. I will hire Marla every chance I get.”

  • Provided Advice Beyond Editing

    “I had the pleasure of working with Marla on my book The Joy of Financial Security. I had worked with another editor who wanted to change my ‘voice,’ and I learned that selecting the right editor is essential for creating the best book possible. Marla and I worked together as a team. She shaped and sculpted the book as though it was her own, always asking me for approval along the way. She bounced ideas off me, allowing me to ponder them before responding. She gave me advice that extended beyond editing, such as how to set up the distribution channels for the book and how to select a publicist. She is extremely talented as an editor, and her advice on many other topics was an added bonus.”

  • Highly Recommend

    I have worked with Marla in four capacities. First, as editor of my book: She transformed my manuscript into an informative, easy-to-read, high-quality book, studying the market and knowing when to suggest rewrites. Second, as project manager, Marla assembled a quality design and editorial team. Post publication, Marla has edited blogs, website content, and other marketing collateral. There is an important fourth role—mentor. This is my first book, and through her vast experience and industry contacts, Marla provided knowledge, support, and guidance. Throughout she set high standards, adhered to all commitments and budgets, and kept me informed. I highly recommend Marla.

She has the unique ability to edit content yet protect the voice of the author. Marla is an extraordinary editor.”
