Testimonials

“Jeff has fundamentally improved how I approach storytelling. His guidance and advice has been invaluable, helping to cure me of mono-mouth – all of my characters sounded the same. After working with Jeff, I can now confidently create dynamic, interesting, and unique characters that are so real I find myself talking to them. Jeff is a total pro with a warm disposition and the heart of a teacher. His services are unparalleled.”

“Jeff Elkins is an amazing editor. He is very thoughtful and helpful…he also is candid and clear. I’ve worked with a lot of editors over the years and it can be difficult for people of color to find a developmental editor who is open enough to allow their voices to resonate. Jeff is someone who knows how to allow the space for diversity to shine. I look forward to working with him in the near future.”

“Working with Jeff gave me the tools I needed to be able to give my novel’s characters the voices they deserved. Not only was he able to explain ‘how’, but he also patiently explained ‘why’ my dialogue wasn’t working.” 

Sharilyn Decter, Author of 8 novels including the Bootleggers’ Chronicles and the Rum Runners’ Trilogy

I struggle with bringing vivid detail and good dialogue into some of my scenes.  In my session with Jeff, he provided all kinds of practical ideas and suggestions for one of my scenes that I will apply not only there, but in other scenes in my book. If I get stuck again, unable to make other scenes in my book pop, I won’t hesitate to book more sessions with Jeff to help me polish them to a shine.  I recommend the Dialogue Doctor to anyone who feels stuck or is struggling to improve the dialogue, emotion, and granular detail of their stories and scenes. It was just the motivation I needed to keep going on my book.  Seriously helpful!”
