Testimonials

Dan’s got a knack for knowing what to throw out, what to revise, and what to amp up in order to make a good story great. After working with him for over two years on short stories and a novel, I accumulated a veritable catalog of practical knowledge that will supplement my writing for years to come. -Matt Andrew, Author of “7 Ways to Avoid Psychopaths, Murderers, and other Deviants,” published in Dark Moon Digest

Getting a story done is hard. Getting solid feedback from someone you can trust is even harder. Kristy’s knowledge of story dynamics is something that has elevated my writing by showing me everything from the sentence level grit and grime to plot construction. I’d be less of a writer without her, don’t pass up the opportunity for her feedback. – Chris Phillips, Flash Fiction Online

Mike is an exceptional editor and an absolute pleasure to work with. His suggestions are not only effective but also thought provoking. What truly astounds me, though, is the quickness of his responses for how considerate his comments are. He regularly demonstrates an intense curiosity and depth of knowledge for the piece for which he is working. He is more like a co-writer versus just an editor, and that relationship is well worth the money!  Bill Huff

Working with Dan Fiore proved invaluable to my career as a writer. Dan helped me focus on creating potent, effective scenes that brought emotion to the page. I can honestly say I am a better writer today for having worked with him. – Victor, 2017 Second Place Winner, Parsec Ink Short Story Contest

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sara on several occasions. Her feedback is always thoughtful and constructive. She’s a nurturing editor who’s always encouraged me to find my voice and run with it. – Kristin Molnar

Kristy provided a critique that was not only thorough but gave clear, concise feedback on how to strengthen my writing. – Vanessa Essler Carlson

Dan Fiore has been helping me to develop my stories for years. No matter what stage of the revision process one of my pieces is in when I send it to him, he never fails to open my eyes with pointed questions, astute considerations and spot-on edits that really get to the heart of exactly what that particular story needs at that particular juncture in the story’s growth. Whether I’m working toward a second draft or the final, I really couldn’t imagine my creative process without his involvement. -Dan Reidmiller, Professional Writer and Author of “Fed By The Spoonful,” published in Calliope (Winter, 2016), the official publication for the Writers’ Special Interest Group of American Mensa.

Mike gave me an excellent, multi-layered edit that analyzed everything from my concept and story beats down to turns of phrase and even misplaced spaces. He helped take my piece from finished draft to ready-to-submit! – Luke Elliott

Kristy brought a level of thoughtfulness and perception to the critique workshop I had with her that is remarkable. Any writer who works with her can’t help but improve. – Chelsea Lytal
