I hired her & had a miscommunication about the price. Her emails said one thing, then she kept sending me paypal money requests for more money - but it was NOT what she had told me initially - it was more. I had the emails to prove it! I kept rereading my emails & couldn't figure out how she thought she was correct. She quoted me one thing & then later quoted a higher rate. Then, I was not impressed with her work. I thought she would provide substantive commentary on content, flow, style, etc. However, all she did was make simple grammar corrections using track changes. For example, she would adjust the tense or something like that. She didn't comment on whether the examples I used were good. She just did very basic sentence correction. Again, our email communication had led me to expect something different. I ended up finding another editor on craigslist - that editor was AWESOME. I ended up paying the second editor more but it was worth it. I now continue to use the second editor I found on craigslist. That editor commented on grammar, style, content, & more. I also thought it was odd that Molly didn't seem to want to rectify the situation with me. The funny thing is, the editor I ended up finding later was super - I have since referred several people to her. I will continue to recommend my Craigslist editor (I already know that those I've recommended to her are pleased with her & they plan on recommending her), but I cannot recommend the Word Mason.

Although I do not know who this person is I am concerned about any miscommunication or misperception. This review has not been characteristic of my other clients' reactions and I would welcome the chance to discuss this person's dissatisfaction directly. My clients seem pleased that I discuss and explain expectations in great detail, and we agree together on terms and service before we all sign an agreement describing all expectations before I begin the projects. Part of our pre-project discussions involves information regarding substantive editing as it pertains to my work. I provide a fact sheet describing substantive editing, and its scope. I now invite a review of my website, to see what other clients are saying about my services.
