Testimonials

“With each successive piece Tom has written for me, his ideas and approach to the subjects has moved more in line with what I am looking for. He has the ability to find subjects to write about, the willingness to accept directions and to try them out—or think of ways to improve upon my suggestions—and he accepts editing with good cheer.”
Allen Freeman — (The American Scholar magazine)
 

“Whether you write white papers, web content, case studies or commercials, The Write Word Editing and Style Guide gives you the copyediting chops to make your words work. Really like this guide from Tom Bentley: highly useful, well written, lighthearted, with tons of real-world examples, suggestions, advice, AND answers to all those “what-was-that-rule-again?” linguistic challenges we all face. Your copy can’t help but improve by using it.”
Peter Bowerman — (The Well-Fed Writer)
 

“Tom is a brilliant writer. He did an amazing editing job on my book The Mad Duck. His choice of words and style are distinct. Tom made The Mad Duck a thousand times better. I will certainly use him for future editing and would recommend him any day. Tom is also very kind.”
Princess Umul Hatiyya — (The Globetrotting Princess)  

“Tom has been a freelance writer for Airstream Life magazine for about seven years, contributing dozens of articles on a wide range of subjects. His professionalism makes my job as Editor much easier, because he delivers quality work, on time.”
Rich Luhr — Airstream Life Magazine
 

“I have written a novel, and Tom served (and is still serving) as my editor. This is a rather large work, at 240,000 words. He corrected details of grammar and sentence structure with high levels of accuracy; my impression is that nothing escaped his attention. Much more than that, however, he gave guidance on content and structure that made my book many, many times better than it was.
I would have to say that Tom helped me transform it.”
Dr. Richard Wilson — Bite Point
 

“Tom Bentley did a masterful job at editing my novel, Treasure of the Mayan King. I guess you could say he ironed out the ‘wrinkles’ in my manuscript to create a smooth readable product. I already have future manuscripts slated for him to edit. I trust completely in his talents to make a winning product.”
Kudos to Tom!   
Alex Zabala – Arcani Arts

 

“Tom’s work with Edgy Conversations was transformational. He brought the words together into a series of chapters that made the story powerful. His suggestions were insightful and helpful. Simply invaluable.”
Dan Waldschmidt — Edgy Conversations
 

“I hired Tom for some freelance editing work on highly technical documentation under an extremely tight timeframe and was amazed at how quickly and well he could produce the work. I was very fortunate to have him on my team and would hire him again in a minute (or less)!”
Megan Davis Seagren — Megan Seagren and Associates
 

“Tom is a gifted writer. His style and grammar are impeccable. Tom is funny in the smartest way, and smart in the funniest way, which is to say he is a genius. I would trust him with any kind of copy, from small projects (articles, essays) to full manuscripts (business, nonfiction, fiction, and creative writing style books). And if you need help with your overall writing career direction (creating a blog, marketing, branding) he’s brilliant, and if he cannot help you, he can steer you in the right direction.”
Mary Louise Penaz
 

“Tom did some writing for me a couple of years ago, and I would hire him again in a second. He has a rare talent with words, and the dexterity to shape them appropriately for the individual needs and voice of every client. His good humor and easy-goingness make him a real pleasure to work with.”
Rachel Radway
 

“Tom is an exceptional talent. His abilities as a writer extend beyond the norm and into the realm of the truly brilliant and insanely amusing. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an equally gifted wordsmith.”
Robert Trama
 

“Tom is an amazing talent – very funny and creative. I highly recommend Tom!”
Jenny Martin
 

“I highly recommend Tom for any writing or editing your company needs. I’ve used his services for years on a wide assortment of projects and have never been disappointed. His expertise is daunting, his knowledge almost scary and his work is always on the mark: humorous when needed, deeply serious when not. Hire him … but don’t keep him so busy that he won’t have time for my projects. My only regret is that I can only check three attributes to extol.”
