“Nervous” was the only word to describe my feelings when I forwarded my eight-year-old, 400-plus-page manuscript to my new editor. “Delighted” was the first word that raced through my mind each and every time I finished reviewing Tim’s handiwork. His turnaround time was impressive, his edits clear and concise, deletion recommendations on target, and suggestions to improve background settings impressive. We developed such a close relationship that he had the courage to recommend that I change the title of my book from “Gentlemen Do Not Read Each Others’ Mail” to its present title. Tim’s reasoning and insight were spot on. For my next book, which is in the works, Tim will be on my team.

Operations Compromised continues to be an “Amazon Bestseller.” Much of the success is directly attributable to Dr. Tim Boswell, who helped make a good story better. I would highly recommend Dr. Boswell’s services. He makes the process enjoyable and I like working with him.

All I can say is wow… I am truly proud and humbled. Tim, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. This process and your guidance has meant so much to me I cannot express it in words. For probably the first time in my life I am speechless. You have made this better than I could have imagined and I want you to know I am beyond honored no matter what happens. I worked with a couple editors before you briefly and I was really lucky to find you. I felt ‘finally, someone on the same page.’ Amazingly enough we have film interest in Los Angeles by a really cool writer/director. Excited for the galleys and the future no matter what!

Dr. Timothy Boswell was my editor on two book projects. As I plan a third book, I cannot imagine the project without Dr. Boswell. He is an outstanding writer and listens well, assuring the vision of the author is accomplished. Dr. Boswell has a servant’s heart and is a team player. I call him a friend as well as a co-worker. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Timothy Boswell as a writer and editor.

I’ve worked with other editors and professionals and have published many books. You were the best. Accurate, responsive, insightful, and encouraging.

When my publisher told me I’d be working with a “developmental editor” I had no idea what that was. I was admittedly wary because I had written three previous books without one and wondered why I needed one. Then the publisher introduced me to Tim and, after working with him on this project, I bemoaned the fact he hadn’t been around to help me craft the previous books! They would have been far improved.
Tim opened my eyes to what genuine, collaborative book editing is all about. He pored through my draft and carefully, strategically suggested numerous edits, ideas, and changes. He caught grammar errors, but more importantly, he caught errors in my THINKING. He challenged me to think as the reader, not just the writer. The book improved immediately and dramatically.
Tim was forthright but never demanding, articulate but not condescending. And I couldn’t be more thrilled with the end result. This book is the most cogent, most readable, most accessible of my books and it is solely because of Tim’s irreplaceable contributions.

Tim Boswell helped take my book, The Kilgore Curse, from a disorganized manuscript to a thrilling completed novel with over fifty 5-star Amazon reviews. Besides that, he is a humble person and a pleasure to work with. Tim, you are indeed ‘the man.’ I wouldn’t want anyone else editing my novel. Hope we get to work together again soon.

When embarking on something new it can often seem like a daunting endeavor. The climb can seem insurmountable and the steps to complete your journey can be fuzzy and unclear. This is where having support and guidance can be a major asset. When I decided to write a book, I felt all the previous emotions. I had no idea of how I would even start and if I could even successfully put pen to paper and get it done. In came Tim Boswell and instantly I felt that his care and attention to his clients was number one. He not only guided me through the entire writing process, but he also held my feet to the fire and provided me with accountability in order for me to get it done according to a predetermined timetable. As of today, I am proud to say that I am now a published author. I would definitely and whole-heartedly recommend Tim for your writing and coaching needs.

My book would never have been a polished, finished product if not for Tim. He told me in our first conversation after he was assigned to my manuscript that he would not change the style in which I wrote. Tim did nudge me in the right direction to expand on description and emotion, which I did to his approval. After Tim rearranged and combined some sentences and compressed 29 chapters to 24, my book was ready to go. If anyone would review Black Cat 2-1 you know having Tim Boswell on your team, and in this case “in the cockpit” with me, produces a solid book.

Tim was a great professional and really captured the spirit of my voice and my writing. This enabled him to seamlessly edit and improve my text with his comments and ideas. I look forward to working with Tim again on a future project.
