Extremely well done!” - Peter Wurdock, author of Love Will Steer the Stars: The History of the Dondero Pop Concert (Elance)


"Nathan helped me navigate the often confusing maze that is publishing a book. He kept me from making novice level mistakes for my first published work, and was exceedingly patient and professional through the many copy edits that were made before my book went to print. He kept the lines of communication open throughout the process and was quick to return correspondence. I will be using him again for my coming follow-up book. There is no doubt in my mind that much of the success I've had with publishing is a direct result of Nathan's guidance through the process." - Dr. Greg Green, author of Reunion Ready.

"Nathan's signature editing service is a fantastic value.  I received sample edits along with rates from six different editors and Nathan proved knowledgeable in content and copy editing of my manuscript and at the most competitive rate.  He didn’t just edit my manuscript and say thanks either, he helped me through the entire process as I made changes and he would review and make suggestions.  I look forward to working with Nathan when I have need of and kind of writing, proof reading, or editing." - John Pribble, author of Private Money Secrets for Real Estate Investors, (Independent)

I cannot praise Nathan's work enough. He is an astute critic and helped me see a number of problems I knew where in the draft of a book I had him look over. I couldn't articulate the writing issues until Nathan outlined them for me. His work was timely, reasonable, and exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely use Nathan again and urge anyone else to do the same.” Mike Mears, Former CIA Executive and author of Leadership Secrets of the CIA and The Hatchery (Guru)

"Thank you Dr. Barnes for you feedback. I appreciate your comments and I am sure that your intervention may enhance the result of the book in the market."  Antonio Grimaldi, author of The Candidate 

“Nathan had valuable copy editing suggestions for my short Christian ebook on evolution and Christianity.” Travis Dougherty, author of Evolution Evolves: A Presuppositional Approach Against Naturalism.

“This contractor is superb! Of course he understands the English language extremely well. Yes he knows the rules of grammar and syntax really well. But, what was also impressive to me was that he checked my writing for logic and sentence completion. He made many valuable edits to my work. He has a lot of writing experience and I'm glad that it showed on my project. I would definitely recommend Dr. Barnes, even to close friends, and would rehire him again. I've worked with many writers on Elance on previous projects, some who have written entire books, and I had to edit their work. Seeing how Dr. Barnes edits really helped me to see that I have a lot more learning to do in the editing department - he did a very professional, phenomenal job that I'm happy with. He's also very, very fast! He had great sensitivity to recognize the specificity of this particular project and took a longer-than-normal 10 hours on my edit and still delivered the final results within 24 hours! He also communicates well and was very professional. Know that when you select Dr. Barnes for your project you get a high-quality contractor! ” - Isaac Dodd, author of MCAT Planner: For the Serious Pre-Med Student (Elance)
