Projects & References

Before trusting me with your service needs, I urge you to review my references and recent project highlights. I have decades of hard-earned experience with corporate editing, proofreading, and writing projects in the aerospace and telecommunications industries. That has been augmented over the last ten years or so with creative and freelance successes. When you are ready to discuss your project, please contact me and let's get started!

You may wonder why I put references at the top of the page. I believe, more than anything I can tell you about my abilities and experience, what my clients have to say speaks volumes:

Angela Ackerman, co-author (along with Becca Puglisi) and co-founder of
Writers Helping Writers™ and One Stop for Writers
"What an absolute pleasure to work with Michael. Over the course of five (5) books, my co-author and I have outsourced editing work to many individuals, and we know just how difficult it is to find the right fit. Michael was nothing short of amazing – professional, prompt, and he understood the scope of the work. His proofing edits were easy to read and therefore easy to implement, which I sincerely appreciated being under a tight deadline. If you need a second pair of eyes on your manuscript, make sure they are Michael's."
David Wood -
Gryphonwood Press
"I highly recommend Michael Dunne's proofreading and editing services. Prompt, thorough, and professional. A pleasure to work with!"


J. Gregory Smith - Author
"I used Michael Dunne’s proofreading service for my novel, Quick Fix.  He was fast, accurate and a pleasure to work with.  He also caught some small errors I missed; the kind that seem to turn invisible to the writer’s own eyes.  His rates were very reasonable and I look forward to working with him on the next book in my series."

Blake Brown - Shibuminet
"Mike is a fantastic technical writer. As a small business owner who won a large telecommunications proof of concept project, I needed a writing specialist who could present the entire project - from the technology abstract to a detailed network configuration procedure - in a professional, accurate and attractive format for my customer. Mike worked closely with me during the entire project to design, author and deliver an excellent 300+ page project document. Thanks to Mike's efforts, we successfully completed the project documentation deliverables on time and under budget."
