When I first saw the extremely reasonable rates for Josiah’s editing services, my first thoughts were likely the same of many people: that it was simply too good to be true. However, I was astounded by his professionalism from the very first correspondence. He got to my book ahead of schedule, and he returned the book to me only a few days afterward! On top of his meticulous corrections in terms of grammar and superfluous phrasing, he also offered constructive criticism and appropriate compliments that gave me the needed direction to make my writing have more of an impact. I would definitely recommend Josiah, and I plan to use his services again in the near future.

I came to publishing forums with a unique problem and a stressful timeline, asking for advice from anyone willing to instruct me on getting my book published. Two days later, Josiah emailed me and offered his services, and I am so blessed to have worked with him. He should’ve pulled out his hair due to all of the mistakes of this first-time author, but he didn’t. Instead he pointed out all of the flaws that were holding me back in my manuscript and helped show me ways to improve upon them. Thank you Josiah, for teaching this aging man how to tell a story, once again
