"Clarisa is one of my go-to proofreaders. Always efficient, always effective, always the first one to get her edits back to me. Always finds things that everyone else missed. In terms of value for money, she can't be beat. "
     ~ David Kassin Fried, DKF Writing

“Clarisa caught errors that only an expert could find and those that MS Word's spell and grammar check simply miss. Having read over my manuscript so many times, I was surprised at how many errors that remained. Her service is definitely worthwhile to ensure a well-finished work. Not to mention, her quick turnaround times are nice. However, the thing that really stood out to me and demonstrated the type of professional and person that Clarisa must be (haven't met her yet!) is the fact that she didn't bill me what she quoted me for the work. She only billed me for what it actually took her to complete her work. I was expecting a larger bill, but it didn't take her as long to complete my manuscript. Obviously, she is trustworthy and that is not always easy to come by these days.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Clarisa Marcee for the past two years. In that time she has been working as a proofreader/copyeditor for at least twelve of our published books related to yoga and spirituality. The manuscripts she worked on have ranged from 30 to 400 pages, and she completed the editing in a timely manner. Clarisa has always been very enthusiastic and ready to help at any time, even when there were very tight deadlines.

Clarisa’s attention to detail in proofreading and her talent in editing has improved the formatting, style, and accuracy of our publications. After giving minimal direction on our style of writing and formatting, Clarisa was able to adapt easily and work independently, which made it easy to work with her and know that she would complete the work well. She has proved to be very dedicated and reliable with all the work she has done for our organization.

Clarisa has my highest recommendation for her talent and skill in proofreading and copyediting, and I trust that she will be successful in whatever work she undertakes.”

“Ms. Marcee performed editing services for me in late 2004, and she did an extraordinary job of cleaning up a messy draft manuscript. I wrote a technical book on school finance from an historical perspective, and she spent several weeks cleaning it up from a technical, grammatical and factual standpoint. The end product was a dramatic improvement in every way. When I was ready to have an editor look over my original draft, I called a few friends in Austin to see who they might refer me to for editing. I was fortunate to find Ms. Marcee, and she came highly recommended. Her work was thorough, accurate and timely. I would certainly engage her again if I were to attempt to write another such publication.”

“I am proud to wholeheartedly recommend Clarisa Marcee for work as an editor, proofreader, and writer. She’s very good at all three, meets deadlines, and presents a pleasant attitude. Working with her was a joy.

I used to be the Special Projects Manager for New Texas Magazine. Ms. Marcee worked for us for eight years. She was an active part of the editorial team, and even supervised some of the freelance writers. She can edit very well. She proofreads quite accurately and takes assignments and writes with great skill. We all enjoyed working with her.”

“I realize I am probably the latest in a long line of grateful publicists to say this, but you are really a delight to work with. Thanks for all your great work! I couldn’t have asked for a better person for the job. You are talented, dependable, friendly, professional, and very effective at getting the press material package I needed written with lightening-quick speed.”
     ~ Tammy Richards LeSure, Richards Public Relations

“For the last two years, Clarisa Marcee has been involved as a proofreader / copyeditor for the Program Book for the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival. This book typically runs about 90 pages and contains descriptions of panels, parties and other events that occur at SXSW Interactive. The book also contains bios of all speakers who participate at the event. The Program Book has improved dramatically over the last two years and I know that Clarisa’s proofing talents have been a big part of this improvement. Moreover, Clarisa has required little guidance on my part — we met a few times to discuss what I needed her to do for SXSW and beyond these initial meetings she did not need any more directions from me. The kind of energy and self-motivation that she displayed in her role as a proofreader / copyeditor was a perfect match for our busy schedule at SXSW. Given my experiences with Clarisa Marcee, I would wholeheartedly recommend her.”
