References and affiliations

Over the past few decades, I’ve earned praise in the form of customer comments and in the support of repeat clients—those who keep coming back for more are the most appreciated to me, of course; but, as a potential client, you are likely more interested in comments and references. Below are a few that I cherish because I feel they sum up what is important to me . . .

“Thank you so much for your advice and guidance. . . . You
helped me . . . through it all, by answering dozens (if not hundreds) of questions.
You really helped make this . . . a reality.”

“Congratulations . . . Teachers and students both will have
plenty of material to engage their curiosity and provoke further questioning
and thought. I am pleased [you were] associated with this issue.”

“Stephen’s strengths included his willingness to . . . pitch
in on short deadlines at short notice. He was an effective copyeditor and proofreader;
without his assistance in these areas, we would not have made our deadlines.”

“Thank you, again, for your help. . . . The printed materials,
the tangible items that will [remain] in the future, are testimony to a creative,
accurate, and professional print committee. Thank you for being a part of
that committee.”

“Well, I could not resist reading through the paper. Not touching it for
a week [like you advised] would be like asking a mother not to touch her newborn
baby for a week (I suppose). . . . It reads very well and I can
tell . . . you’re enjoying the project. That’s encouraging, since
the whole purpose of the thing is to provide folks with something to enjoy!”

“I am . . . indebted and deeply grateful to my diligent and
gifted editor. . . . I know he had a difficult challenge in working
with a novice. I also asked Stephen not to alter the language in the text
as the diction is peculiar to my culture and my time. With his sharp eye and
his love of editing, he helped me organize my thoughts and say what I meant
to say. His skill and quiet wisdom are all that any writer could ever want
in an editor.”

I thank these clients for their appreciation and support, and I look forward to posting comments from you!  You can find additional recommendations on my LinkedIn profile page.

Professional Affiliations

One result of working in an industry for a number of years is the network of advisers and specialists I’ve managed to put together.  And, one benefit of that network, to you, is the ability to refer you to someone I can recommend when necessary for advice and information, often at discounted rates or no cost at all. 

In addition to these direct connections, many of the professional organizations I support (which I’ve broken down into two categories, below) have resources on their websites that might also help you.

I try to keep these links and descriptions up to date, but if you catch errors introduced by change before I do, please let me know.  Likewise, if you discover a helpful organization I have not listed, let me know that, as well—if they’ve helped you, they’ll likely help someone else.
