Client Kudos for RobertEditFast Preferred ChoiceRobert has acquired Preferred Editor status and is EditFast's recommended choice.

Project 3896: Hi Robert
Great service, happy with the editing.

Project 4365: Hi Robert,
I feel fortunate that I had the chance to have you edit my statement of intent. I appreciate your attention and efforts. I feel more confident with my application now. It has been a great learning experience for me. I look forward to learning more from you in the future.

I loved the way you re-phased the sentences. What a great touch that says 'hello'! -:)

You read my mind and transformed the meaning of the sentence.

Thank you again,


Project 4700: I am very pleased with the editing that has been done for me on two different manuscripts (done by Editfast). I will be taking my next project to Editfast right away. I refuse to utilize any other company for they (other companies) have not been able to show neither the professionalism nor range of ability that editors at Editfast have.
I look forward to our next project.
All The Best,
Paul T. Burke, M. Ed.
CEO: Paul Burke Enterprises, LLC

Project 5207: I was in a hurry to get my visitor's guide edited and found Robert Kidd at EditFatFast by chance. Robert has been wonderful to work with; he answered all of my questions promptly and returned my edited documents just a day after I sent them. I am very pleased with the results and Robert has proved to be an invaluable editor. I am confident that my brochure is ready to print and I will definitely use Robert to edit the next issue. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Project 6465: I found that although I should have done more work before submitting my document to EditFast and not add as many new sections as I did along with new material later during the editing phase, EditFast was very well worth the money. My initial submission was hard to work with as I am new to the book writing process, however, Robert Kidd my editor, did an excellent job at critically reviewing my book for logical and clarity issues and also did a good job with the proof read and sentence structure and grammatical issues. Bob did a great job with timely responses to my emails, and was highly accessible by email and by phone during the editing process.

I am very pleased with the amount of high quality work I received for the money. Before I had chosen EditFast, I looked at some other companies that would have cost twice as much or more to edit my book. I will definitely choose EditFast for my next book.

Many Thanks;

Profile My education in the B.A. Honors English program at The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada, and the MA program at The University of Victoria, Victoria, B.C., Canada, has given me a great appreciation for the English language and enhanced my natural abilities in this area.
