“You’ve found the best editor in the world to take your nonfiction book from good to great.”

Janna Wright, Grace Changes Everything

“Weak grammar and poor syntax were no match for his pen, and Blake was always careful to honor my voice. Blake cheerfully brought empathy, pep talks, and humor to the table too, which made the process a delight! If editors collected star ratings, I’d give Blake five gold ones.”

Jim Denison, Denison Forum

“He has a passion for excellence and gift for precision. I could not do my work without him.”

Jae Amare, Amor Sui

“I found Blake Atwood by chance and it was the best thing that ever happened to my writing! He was not only an invaluable resource to me, but he assisted me every step of my writing process, which for a brand new author was a dream come true. If you want an honest, professional, and proficient individual assisting you in your project then Blake is that guy.”

“He has an uncanny ability to get in your head and write with your voice. Atwood has my highest recommendation.”

— Pastor Kurt W. Bubna, Mr. & Mrs.: How to Thrive in a Perfectly Imperfect Marriage

“I cannot thank my editor enough for his work and contribution on this book. While I enjoy writing, I wouldn’t call myself an excellent writer and certainly not an experienced one. Blake helped walk me through the process from start to finish. At one point, this book was only ten chapters with twenty pages in each chapter!”

— Michael Jones, Reset

“Hiring Blake as an editor was exactly what my manuscript needed. We did an initial phone call to understand expectations and how we would work together, and he delivered on those commitments – even exceeding the timeline we originally discussed. I appreciate all of his input and plan to work with him again on future books.”

— Brooke Ignet Hocker, Do What I Say: Life as My Mother Predicted

“Blake is a joy to work with. As a first-time author he guided me through the process with a gentle and knowledgeable hand. I couldn’t be more pleased with his professionalism and personal commitment to make my book the best it could be.”

— Lynn Fredrick, Stand Firm: From the Darkness of Pornography and Sexual Sin into the Light of God’s Grace

“From my first meeting with Blake, it was clear that he was an excellent listener, and that it was important to him to make sure that whatever he did to enhance the manuscript was aligned with my overall goal for the book. Once we were into the editing process, Blake carefully and tastefully brought new ideas to the table, never attempting to put his stamp on the book but to ensure that it captured my thoughts in the most powerful and meaningful way. Goal accomplished! Blake is a real pro, and I heartily recommend him to anyone who wants to transform a manuscript into a book.”

— Dwight Fletcher, Time on the Cross: A Father’s Tribute

“I am a good content generator. After that, I am lost. Blake has successfully, seamlessly cleaned up manuscripts I have given him and taken them through to Amazon and Kindle. So much of the publishing process is a foreign language to me. Thankfully, Blake speaks the language fluently. His edits, layouts, and style choices are all spot on. Furthermore, Blake is very accessible and patient. I am very pleased and blessed to work with him and trust him with my projects. ”

— Jim Stern, Be: The Way of Rest, Fortified, and Oneness

“Blake’s editing, writing, organization, and efficiency are outstanding. He made my manuscript much better and I highly recommend his services.”
