Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from people who have hired me to edit or proofread.

I worked with Adam on a manuscript for an upcoming book about Ernest Hemingway. I found him to be a competent and thorough editor who has a good sense of what clear and clean writing should be.

—Helena Bachmann, Executive Editor, Simply Charly Books

Adam’s proofreading work was sharp and observant and he helped add a fine polish to my novel, Butchertown! Good job!

—Thomas Burchfield, author of Butchertown (Ambler House, 2017)

Adam took a manuscript that was written in academic terms and simplified it for the lay reader, without oversimplifying it. He even researched the topic and added information to better explain the subject. I was very impressed with his editing skills.

—Amber Henderson, Managing Editor, Menasha Ridge Press/Wilderness Press/The Unofficial Guides

Adam served as editor for my first book, Southbound Traveler, and I couldn’t be happier with the work he did. From the outset, he understood the tone and narrative voice I was aiming for, and his changes found ways to enhance that voice. His notes also challenged me in all the right ways; where he saw opportunities for the book to be better, more balanced, and more nuanced in its treatment of various subjects, Adam identified them, offered links to useful starting points for relevant research, and pointed out what points of view my blind spots weren’t seeing. Adam’s editing polished the rough edges of Southbound Traveler and really tied the book together.

I am very appreciative to Adam Rosen for all his hard work on my project. His evaluation of my work, willingness to make changes to our schedule, and attention to detail set him apart from other editors. Adam is very knowledgable about the book-writing process and answered many questions, whether about actual content or things such as copyright and ISBN. Another thing that set Adam apart was his encouragement and positivity throughout our time working together. Writing a book can be very stressful, but Adam takes the time to point out all the good things about your work.
