The excellent editing work of StyleMatters was a critical piece to completing my manuscript on the Middle East. The editor I worked with provided clear, timely, and professional feedback on both micro and macro edits. I appreciate most that my editor provided suggestions that helped me to understand the way in which I needed to clarify detailed points or broader arguments, but at the same time, she always sought to maintain my personal tone and intended meaning. The end result was a manuscript picked up by AMACOM and published in 2007.

StyleMatters created a brilliant, sophisticated proposal and did a masterful job of representing my work to publishers. Their creative capacity and tenacity for perfection enabled me to sign with the publisher that best fit my vision as an author, Sierra Club Books. I consider StyleMatters to be my long term creative partners well into the future.

The StyleMatters writing team was pivotal in creating a top-notch manuscript. Their dedication, manner in which they worked with me, expertise they brought to the process, and ability to boil down complex constructs into easily understood and actionable prose created a product that exceeded my expectations. I would gladly use them again and encourage every author to do so.

My StyleMatters developmental editing team brought not only world-class writing and publishing expertise to developing my manuscript but also an extraordinary sense of integrity to and ownership of their work. Ultimately, I chose to work with them because rather than simply acquiescing to my direction, they challenged me to shape the manuscript in a way that would ultimately optimize its impact to my target audience and make it the successful publication that it is today.
—Gary Latham, PhD, Board Director, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
Whether it was strategic level consulting on my manuscript's evolution in engaging the target market, or ground level advice on keeping my tone and voice consistent, the StyleMatters team made sure the final text was the best it could possibly be. I can't imagine having written this without them and wholeheartedly endorse their services.

I hired Suzanne Murray, Managing Editor at StyleMatters, to help me turn my experiences as a CEO into words of wisdom that a widespread audience could benefit from. StyleMatters did a fabulous job in transferring my stories to the written page: Not only did the writer convey my experiences in a compelling and original way, but she did an excellent job of retaining the integrity of the stories and maintaining my voice. The finished book was not only informative and professional, but it was inspiring and exceeded my highest expectations.

Beyond offering talented creative expertise, StyleMatters brings seasoned project management to the table.
