"Being a first time author, Christopher Cervelloni had a work load ahead editing my manuscript. He scheduled me within a few weeks after my request for editing and finished it quickly. Christopher's constructive three page commentary explaining his editing process, suggesting better ways to assemble sentence structure and develop content demonstrated his skill in helping me achieve a remarkably improved manuscript. When doubting my novice writing abilities, Christopher's positive encouragement improved my mindset toward one of I can do it. He listens well, is to the point and professional.
I will definitely use Christopher for future projects and highly recommend him to others."

He respects deadlines and answers all emails quickly. I was surprised by the detailed comments and surgical edits I received in a very short space of time. He edited my 470 page manuscript in approximately a week and half! The price was perfect for my budget. Thanks!"

"I hired Christopher to edit my manuscript. He found all the standard gramactical errors that are expeceted from any compentent editor. The part that sets him apart from other editors is that he takes the time to explain my errors to me and truly seems to make an effort to make me a better writer. Many editors get so wrapped up in what is wrong with a manuscript, they often lose focus on the story. Christopher does not. He shows actual interest in the words and offers his thoughts and suggestions on the plot and storyline. I feel he is an asset to any writer, and you can feel confident that he will make your words better. He is a tough taskmaster, but I know he's on my team. I consider myself fortunate to have found him and you will too."
- JD L.
"I was skeptical about using this service after having a horrible editing experience in with others the past; however, that all changed after my contact with a few editors. Christopher Cervelloni (Blue Square Writers' Studio) answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with the services he provided. He made the payment options simple; his editing was excellent and his insight with regards to my story context was more than I expected. He also completed everything within a week of submission. He went far and beyond what I expected and I will definitely use him to edit my next book."

Like many writers, I'm quite sensitive about sharing my work with others, but Christopher was thorough, offering lots of insight and suggestions for improvement mixed with keen observations and delicate compliments. He clearly knows what he's doing. I hope to collaborate with him again."

"Christopher edited my very first novel recently. The service he provided far exceeded my expectations. He provided editing for grammatical errors and sentence structure, but also for flow and consistency throughout my novel. He returned to me my fully edited manuscript with his notes, corrections and recommendations, as well as a 2-page overview summary of my work. In addition to recommendations, he also offered positive feedback, which complemented the critique and recommendations well. His critique was honest, professional, and critical in pushing me to be the best author I can be. In reading his comments, I felt like Christopher knew me and my book. The fee he charges was significantly lower than most of the other quotes I received, making this an outstanding value overall."
- Lora N.

"I hired Derrick and Blue Square Writer's studio for the final edit of my vampire novel. The decision to hire was based on both his professional response to my initial post, as well as the reasonable price he offered for the service. And I don't mind saying that I definitely got my money's worth from his edit. He covered the basics, correcting my grammar and spelling, but also provided positive critical feedback regarding character and story development, helping me to shape my manuscript into a strong and marketable book. I look forward to working with him on future projects, and I can absolutely recommend his service for writers of fiction, like myself."

- Nathan D.
"It was everything I expected! I sent the manuscript. He reviewed it, provided feedback and made sure everything was correct. He also made sure my story flowed.. I was impress at moments where I'd forgot to take something out, and he caught it. Impressed. The write up provided was very detailed and really showed how he connected with me as a writer, without even knowing me personally.. He could tell when I cut corners (haha) and when I took the time to write.. I really appreciate the services and I MUST submit my other manuscripts. Very professional and gave me so much to think about! Thank you!"
- Jennifer M.
"I am sending my manuscript to Derrick on Thursday - he's been kind enough to accommodate my pay schedule at work. Thank you, Derrick."

"Excellent, professional work with a quick turnaround and very reasonable pricing. Not only did he do the editing I asked, he also took a previously edited document and "married" it to the new one, and smoothed out any wrinkles with formatting, etc. Highly recommended."
- Dean B.
"Great professional work. He even sent me a separate document with his feedback and comments."
- Jason T.
"I submitted two short stories projected as part of a larger collection. They were returned on time with good editing, insightful comments, no sugar-coating, fair price."
- Michael K.
"Derrick provided a thorough review of my book. His service will make it a better product. I am happy that he was available here on thumbtack. This was my first book so I was not sure what to expect and I probably don't know the proper jargon yet to provide a better response here but suffice it to say I felt Derrick provided me prompt, sincere, detailed, and professional service to me. Thank you, Derrick!"
- Matt M.
"He read in between the lines and told me what I needed to hear. I totally recommend him."
