David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and bestselling author of Perfectly Legal, 2004 Investigative Reporters and Editors Book of the Year

Each time I’d read my manuscript I would think about how lucky I was to work with Stephanie. Her writing and eye for detail are just phenomenal. Beyond the quality of her writing, I found her to be an empathetic, highly organized project manager who pushed the book forward despite my hectic international travel schedule. She was a wonderful partner in helping me tell my story, and I would enthusiastically recommend her.

Stephanie Land is a gifted editor and writer with an impeccable sense of pace, storytelling, and a pitch perfect ability to capture an author’s voice. And she does it all with perfect aplomb, under the most crushing of deadlines.

Roger Scholl, VP and Executive Editor, The Crown Publishing Group

I wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie Land and would work with her again in a heartbeat. Her talents for storytelling, for teasing out an author’s argument, and for showcasing his or her voice are unparalleled. What’s more, she’s fast, she’s professional, and she’s consistently upbeat—a real treasure and an asset to any writing project.

Hollis Heimbouch, VP/Publisher, Harper Business (an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers)

Stephanie is a fantastic editor with a laser sharp eye and she really goes the extra mile. I appreciated her tremendous dedication. My book was lucky to have her. She also happens to be a fun and fabulous person to work with!

Aimee Agresti, author of The Gilded
Wings trilogy

I knew from our first conversation that I’d love working with Stephanie, and she did not disappoint. She is a joy to work with, delivered a great book on time, and from that first moment saw the editorial vision of both the author and the editor. I’d highly recommend working with her whenever possible.

Ryan Doherty, Senior Editor, Ballantine Bantam Dell

Stephanie embraced my work and knew how to use my clients’ experiences to craft compelling stories that illustrated the concepts and solutions I wanted to share with my readers. She is a magician, a speed maven, and a great, great writer.

Dr. Bonnie Jacobson, author of Renegotiate Your Marriage

Stephanie Land has been a pleasure to work with at every turn – efficient, organized, and empathetic.  She has a true gift for capturing voice and for navigating the many competing priorities of a project, from the author’s vision to the editor’s feedback to the time sensitivity of deadlines.  We’ve been lucky to have her on the team.

Amelia Atlas, literary agent, ICM Partners

Stephanie’s incredible ability to take my ideas and thoughts and translate them for the page was phenomenal. I couldn’t have written my book without her. She took my vision to a higher level.

Greg Powell, author of
Better, Richer, Fuller!

 

Stephanie is a great writer, and working with her on my first book was truly a pleasure. Writing a book is not easy–there is so much to get in!–but Stephanie was great at organizing everything I had to say and making sure that my voice came through.  She was also incredibly patient with my constant changes and editing. I can’t say more about how great she was to work with!

Lori Greiner, star of Shark Tank and bestselling author of Invent It, Sell It, Bank It!

I would recommend Stephanie and her work to anyone. She is a caring writer, tireless with research, and skilled in organizing all the details. She also demonstrated an outstanding ability to write in my voice. Thank you, Stephanie!

Dr. Jane Scott, author of The Confident Parent

Stephanie has an amazing ability to capture your voice and make sure your personality makes it onto the page. I’m not the most conventional author, and every time I propose some crazy idea, she just rolls with it and makes it work. The end result is always a book that is informative but lots of fun to read, too. Best of all, my target audience loves it. Without Steph, I wouldn’t be able to make these ideas come to life. She is more than just a writer, she’s a true collaborator and partner in crime.

Gary Vaynerchuk, bestselling author of Crush It!, The Thank You Economy, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, and #AskGaryVee

Stephanie Land works like the best improviser: she helps find “the” voice rather than “her” voice; she listens; she’s fast and agile and she builds a true ensemble with her clients. We loved working with her and hope to do it again.

Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton, authors of Yes, And: Lessons From The Second City
