She is amazingly knowledgeable about all things grammar and has worked tirelessly by my side during the entire writing process. Max has made my books a thousand times better than they ever could have been, and I would never hesitate to work with her in the future and recommend her to everyone I know.
Tara Sivec Max helped me see my manuscript with fresh eyes. Her professionalism and her willingness to be there through every stage of the editing process had me motivated and excited for the finished product.
I am looking forward to working with her again. Kate McCarthy Professional, approachable, and down to earth—Max was incredible to work with! I put my complete trust in her and was not disappointed in the slightest.
She went above and beyond my expectations by giving me fresh ideas, leaving encouraging notes throughout, and then formatting it so it looked like the real deal.
By the end of the process she had instilled in me the confidence to publish my debut novel. I really look forward to working with her again in the future!
I absolutely love working with Max. As a first time self-publishing author, I was terrified of what the editing process would entail and how long it would take with a deadline quickly approaching. But I quickly figured out that I had absolutely nothing to be scared of with Max.
She reassured me that getting my book out by the deadline was not a concern. And when the first round of editing came back, I actually enjoyed doing it. It was so easy to follow and correct.
The notes of encouragement helped my confidence in writing. It never felt like "work" like I thought it would. Instead it felt like best friends shooting ideas back and forth. I will never have another editor and will recommend Max to anyone.
RD Cole I found out that writing the book was the easiest part. Was it any good? Did I miss anything? Were there plot holes?
Was the dialogue believable? Were my ideas original? How do I go from a completed manuscript to a published author? These and a million more questions ran through my head.
I was completely lost. Then I found Max. She has an amazing education and the professional experience to help even the most clueless writer get their work into the hands of eager readers.
Max helped me flesh out my characters by asking insightful and imagination provoking questions. She kept a sharp eye on the pacing and development of my plot and talked me off of multiple ledges when I lost my confidence.
Grammar, punctuation, proper use of slang, and popular sayings—need to know the origins of a word? How about the proper pluralization of elf? Is it dwarf or dwarves? Shoo in or shoe in? Her contacts and referrals for both the cover art and formatting, and then suggestions for promotions and marketing, were professional and helpful.
Max helped me form a team to take my manuscript from a draft to a book—from a dream to a realization.
I could not have done it without her.
