Justin and I worked together on the book proposal for my latest book in the self-help and motivational category. His insight and ability to put the book together was very helpful. We worked closely together and met several times to get the content on paper. I enjoyed working with him and found him to be easy to talk to, and dedicated to writing a great book. Since I am a boxer first and not a professional writer, it was great having a true professional come in and work to help me tell my story. I would recommend Justin to anyone who has a great story to tell and needs help bringing it to life. He is a real knock out of a writer.

To put in the simplest terms possible: Justin Spizman delivers. For almost a year, I sent countless book proposals to different agents to no avail. Not only was there no interest, I rarely received a reply. After hiring Justin, I had obtained representation within three weeks. A few months later, with the agent’s help, and Justin’s help on my proposal, I landed a book deal with a highly respected publisher. I couldn’t have asked for a better result.

I would highly recommend working with Justin. When I first met Justin at an Author seminar, I only had the vague idea that I wanted to write a book and no real direction on how to do so. Justin gave me the direction and the tools to help turn my thoughts and writings into an actual book. Writing a book is an art and Justin is a very talented artist. Everyone has great ideas in my experience, but sometimes we need a professional like Justin to actually execute them. I’m certain my book would have remained unfinished today if not for Justin’s coaching and his commitment to making me stay accountable for my writing deadlines.

I believe an author needs to tell their story. Many authors struggle to come up with content. I had exactly the opposite problem. I had tons of content but it was disorganized and felt overwhelming. I was afraid I could not portray my message clearly. Justin helped me conceptualize my latest book to put my thoughts into a logical system to make the book flow. After I wrote Bridging Medicine and Miracles, he did the complete edit. I could not be happier with the outcome. Justin is easy to work with, professional, and always honored his deadlines and commitments. I highly recommend him.Justin helped me take what was in my heart and soul and put it into book form.

Justin is a dream mentor and editor for both the seasoned writer and the novice! My co-author and I started this journey as two TV news anchors who wanted to write a book but knew very little about the process. Justin patiently guided us through the process and was spot-on about what publishers wanted in a proposal. We tackled a subject matter that would send most men running but Justin didn’t skip a beat. I think his involvement in Where the Bleep Is the Stork? shows his incredible diversity as an editor and professional. He’s been called the guy’s guy author, but it turns out he is also the girl’s guy editor! Any writer would be in great hands working alongside this best-selling author.

Every week I could count on you to do what you said you would do.

His style is straightforward, reflective, decisive and precise – exactly the traits a writer seeks in an editor and consultant when reaching for the highest levels of clarity and expression. Although he is superb at sifting through options to determine the best strategy, Justin digs in and maintains a disciplined schedule – he knows and demonstrates that it’s the only way to sustain focus. He has an exceptional ability to explore different modes of working together, and can deftly shift from one to another to maintain momentum. Whether brainstorming together, or editing independently, he keeps the ball moving forward, but knows whent to stop and make sure it’s moving in the right direction.

Author of Million Dollar Soup
How many of us have a dream to write a book but never actually believe we can write it? How many of us started writing that first book only to hide it from others and not believe in it ourselves because we know it just wasn’t good enough? That was most definitely the situation I found myself in when I had the good fortune to meet Justin. I knew I had a good idea and a healthy dose of passion about the subject. What I didn’t have was confidence in myself to write the book. The most important thing Justin did was to give me the confidence to find my voice and the author within. He quickly figured out exactly what I needed in terms of structure and support which made the book project less daunting and more doable for me. We kicked off the project the day before Thanksgiving and a little over three months later, with his guidance, I had completed a book that I am so proud of. I am truly thankful for Justin’s efforts on my behalf. He’s incredible at what he does.

There are many attorneys in this world but Justin is one of the few.

The Art of Human Resources: An Insider's Guide to Influencing Your Culture
Working with Justin was easy and enjoyable. Being a first time author, I was anxious about working with an experienced author and editor. Justin was very clear on what could be expected and what the time line was. He pushed me to think outside of my comfort zone and add the ‘why’ to my content (which was much needed). When I received the edits, I thought to myself, I couldn’t have said it better myself. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone who wants to make their book better and ready for publishing. I appreciate the encouraging words he had about my writing style and I hope that I get the chance to work with him again.

Originally, decades ago, I asked a best selling well known author to write my story. She never received my letter and I let the project go. I didn’t know how my story would be told, but I knew that it would be a wonderful closure for me if my successes were shared in a book. I would love to feel that I was helping others with sharing the pain that I had survived. I was excited when Justin Spizman said yes” to ghostwriting/editing my story. He enhanced what I wrote and when I read Exit Stage Left, the story was still very much in my own words. The topics that I wrote about would not be easy to shine a beautiful light on, but Justin did it. Thank you, Justin. I highly recommend the wonderful way you brought my story into a publishable form.

I hear other authors grip about the process of writing a book and don’t get it. I worked with Justin on Never Kick a Cow Chip on a Hot Day—Real Lessons for Real CEOs and Those Who Want to Be” and had a blast! I ended up with a great product, and had a fun and professional relationship with Justin. He is collaborative, instructional and insightful. He allowed my message to get across while making sure that I didn’t run off the rails. I’d would recommend him to first—time as well as seasoned authors who want someone to act as a supportive partner.

When I decided to write my first book, I knew I was going to need an expert to help me get it done. As I began to ask people throughout the industry who had the expertise and patience to coach a new author such as myself, one name kept coming up–Justin Spizman. From our very first conversation, I knew Justin was a great fit. Not only did he help me take my idea and form it into the outline for a book, but he also coached me through every chapter while offering feedback on every word. From that point on, I knew I was in good hands. Justin was as determined as I was to create a book we both would be proud of. If you are looking to turn your book idea into a reality, then Justin Spizman is the expert you need to talk to.

We are first time authors and had no idea where to turn for help with our manuscript. Our publisher suggested three editors to us and that’s how we found Justin. We were very fortunate in that. The editing process was not easy for us. Our medium was satire and our subject matter was challenging. We had a unique style and it took some time for us to get on the same page with Justin. But he pulled his weight and more during the process. So here’s what we can say about our experience. First, Justin was relentlessly engaged in making our manuscript excellent. He brought great expertise to the process and listened and responded to every issue we raised. He was excellent and timely in all his communication and work. He helped us see what an author is too close to their words to see. The bottom line is that our manuscript went through a very valuable transformation and we are very pleased with the final product. Thank you Justin for helping two neophytes through the critical process of editing. We are so grateful for your work.

Justin was more than a book architect for me. He was my advocate, mentor, coach, and friend. It was one of those situations where I was skeptical to start, and then had one of those ah ha moments in the midst of it thinking – what would I be doing without him! Justin was always patient and understanding, mixed with just the right amount of tough love and reality checks. I watched my manuscript become completely transformed throughout this process, and I believe the final product is beyond anything I could have done on my own. He combines a stellar work ethic with personal attention, and I recommend him to anyone who wants above average, exceptional results.

I am so thankful that I hired Justin as the Content Editor for my book The Power of Things Unseen. He was amazing and this is why. One day I just sat down and started writing. I had no real plan for my book. In fact I did not even realize I was writing a book in the beginning. It sort of happened. It just poured out of me, raw, unbridled and unedited. When I was done, I presented Justin with a story that required corralling into order. He helped me do that beautifully. By asking all the right questions and with great insight, he gently directed me until I found what the true message of my book was. He helped me take it apart, remove the unnecessary chatter, and put it back together again. He taught me that my story was not really about me at all. In fact it was about my reader. That made all the difference. It turned my story into a book. I will forever be thankful to Justin for that direction and insight. I highly recommend working with Justin as he will enable the writer to make their work a true best-seller.

The insights, creativity, and professionalism Justin Spizman brought to my book Split Harmony, truly made it a more impacting read than it ever would have been without his input. Justin was easy to work with and I felt like we made a great team throughout the process.
