Testimonial: Greg Murphy, Editor

Greg Murphy, Editor at Hero Editorial Services

Bob MacKenzie is truly a gifted writer and editor. I hired Bob to copy-edit the text for the website of my new business, Hero Editorial Services. He not only copy-edited the text but also showed me infelicities in my writing that I was blind to. He assessed the effectiveness of my document as a sales tool, continually offering tips to help me find my market and focus my message. Iím glad I chose Bob as my editor.
