"Editor Mike tightened up my memoir quite a bit. After the first sentence he edited -- he helped my voice flow without rambling or repeating myself--which I tend to do a lot. Without changing my thoughts, he helped me tell my coming of age story and added the finishing touches for publishers to read."
- Jonathan Cain Songwriter / Keyboardist for the world-famous rock band Journey
"An excellent analysis and constructive critique. Probably the best I've had from editors - even the ones in the Apple."
"Mike is my hero - he took my 'pretty good' writing and artfully elevated it to an easily publishable quality. He quickly developed what I can only describe as a kind of rapport with my writing style that allowed his edits to seamlessly fold into my work."
- Dow Winscott

"Aside from being one of the most talented, knowledgeable and thorough editors I have worked with, Mike excels at partnering with and listening to the client and going the extra mile to ensure the success of the project.

"I really enjoyed working with editor Mike Valentino on my book, “Emotional Core Therapy.” I would not have been able to write the book at all if it were not for the expertise and integrity of Mr. Valentino. In my opinion, Mike is a master at making characters come alive. He breathed life into my book. Moreover, Mike has a good deal of persistence. Our book took nearly six months to finish and Mike never wavered in his commitment to help me. It is without hesitation, that I highly recommend Mike Valentino to other aspiring writers."

"Mike Valentino's editing work was superb. I sent him a very rough book manuscript. He delivered a fully edited manuscript on time and on budget--not only correcting errors but suggesting copy changes that made a huge difference. He was easy to work with and I would hasten to recommend his excellent services to anyone in need of speed, accuracy and a fair price."
