Welcome to the Purple Spekter™ Word Forge

You’ve written words…lots of words…and your manuscript is nearly perfect. Now, it’s time to hammer out the tricky typos, grammatical gremlins, and pesky punctuation problems. That’s where I can help! I’ll take your beautiful words and polish them into glorious perfection.

Damien is honest, talented, and wonderful to work with! I’ve worked with other editors in the past and no one can compare! It feels amazing to have finally found someone I can trust… someone I know is going to do an amazing job. I will never work with anyone but Damien on future projects.

Damien is capable of proving feedback not only on grammar and formatting, but also understanding the concepts that I was trying to convey in my articles. In addition to attention to detail, he truly put himself in my shoes to make sure he did not change my voice or writing style yet still was able to add and reword certain pieces of content to add clarity and even additional value to my readers. Will certainly be using Damien continuously my high value pieces of content.
