Donovan’s extraordinary talent as both a writer and editor has completely won my confidence. Initially, I believed that what I wanted was a competent line-editor. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I needed an editor who not only had the capacity to make suggestions, but to dig deeply into my work. After a complete and thorough edit of the first few chapters, Donovan ‘found my voice’. His recommendations have proved to be spot-on, and I heed his advice with the utmost confidence. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that with Donovan’s editing, my book has evolved from a good work to a publishable one.
Donovan is sharp. He gets the job done, all the while consulting and checking-in. His earnest and committed approach is a bonus to his strong skill set. I couldn’t be more pleased, or recommend Donovan Reves with more enthusiasm.”

Donovan’s editing experience and critical insight have been instrumental to my writing. As an editor myself, I understand the need for a second opinion that asks the important questions. His own pieces have a polished, consistent quality, from prose to grammar to voice. Donovan is simultaneously thorough and timely with feedback, a rarity amongst editors.”
