Female director of a department of a major hospital:

Thank you again! Your work is amazing!

The next day:

Is it Ok if I share your information with all of my classmates? I would like to give them your website and e-mail address.

Several days later:

 One of my Committee members gave me the reference to the editor that she had used for her project. He used to be a volunteer at the Graduate Resource Center and has a lot of experience.​ I have been EXTREMELY pleased with his work and wanted to share his information. His prices are very reasonable and he did a great job of making my "words" flow and make sense. His turn around time was great too! 

He has a website that you can look at and see some other people's comments and his general information


Female executive I know through a contact at an entrepreneurial group:

Thanks for all the edits. Will adjust accordingly.


Female university-level human resources executive whose doctoral dissertation I worked on:

Just want to extend my gratitude to you for helping me polish my dissertation by sharing your expertise in editing. I will always be grateful to you for prioritizing my work. It made a world of difference! Much appreciated.


Male author whose book I worked on:

Thanks for all of your hard work and effort, Jim. I am looking forward to receiving the completed project.


Female Native American doctoral student at the University of New Mexico:

I brag about you all the time.


Male doctoral student at the

University of New Mexico: 

I was enormously pleased with Jim Wagner's editing knowledge and skills. His attention to editorial detail was superb and showed real mastery at finding grammatical errors. He was well organized and had excellent turn around time. I appreciated his knowledge of the American Psychological Association style. His rates were reasonable and all questions readily answered. I highly recommend Jim as an editor who will work with you to obtain a final professional copy that is ready to be published.



Newspaper reporter/editor/publisher I worked with for years:

Jim Wagner is like the sands of time. Relentless. Accurate. On time. Anyone looking for a professional, detail-oriented copy editor should either retain Jim Wagner to make the product as good as it can be, or hope he doesn't come across it later and mail you a marked-up copy.


Female doctoral student at the University of New Mexico:

I just wrapped up a dissertation and passed without corrections, which IS a big deal. And I have to say that I owe much of that to the work Jim, with Daddy Wags Editing, did with me cleaning up my writing.  He was willing to take time to explain his corrections or suggestions to improve the writing. He was fast. And he really took an interest in the work I was doing. I can highly recommend Daddy Wags Editing. 


Female doctoral student at the University of New Mexico:

Many thanks! It has been great working with you. Your services were fantastic. My committee was really happy with the strong, clear, and concise writing. I would highly encourage others to utilize your services. I learned a lot as well and I am becoming a better writer. Thank you for your time. I appreciate that your editing is done with careful attention and each change was clearly indicated. I also appreciated that your services were done in a timely manner -- turn round times were always perfect. Thank you once again for all your help and flexibility. I look forward to future dialogue on other projects. As you promised when we first spoke on the phone, the product will be better, and it was.


Male doctoral student from Turkey who was studying in England:
