Being an author myself, I am often approached by professional or new authors with requests to help edit and revise their works. Below are my editorial services available to any author. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions 🙂
“Ammar is a delightfully kind and mature person to work with. He truly enjoys and excels at helping writers with their writing difficulties and celebrating their strengths. A careful reader with a keen eye for voice and clarity, Ammar is the sort of kind and thorough editor I would like for my own work.” – Dr. April Julier, PhD
“I have worked with Ammar in a professional setting multiple times. We have worked together on writing and imagery based projects. Each time we have mutually come away with a successful product we can both be proud of. I would highly recommend Ammar Habib to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful, creative, intelligent, and timely editor.” – Jackson Zorn, artist/comic book writer
“Ammar has been a wonderful help with my writing and work in publishing. He has given great time and thought into helping me achieve what I am looking for in my piece. Ammar’s assistance has greatly assisted me in cleaning and plotting my work.” -Maddie Marie, author
