“Ben has been a critical part of our team at Puzzle Box Horror since he started writing and working with us in early 2021. His writing is top notch and his collaboration is fantastic. He is a rare breed of high output and great communication, which is hard to find with contractors. Ben also assists with promotion and editing, and goes above and beyond in everything he does. I can’t recommend Ben enough as a partner on any project.”
“While preparing my manuscript for submission to agents, I knew I needed someone with a sharp eye and keen insight to help clean things up and smooth over the rough edges. Ben Long stepped into that role beautifully, going above and beyond my expectations, offering expert advice and detailing blind spots in my own narrative voice—tips and tricks that have improved my overall writing toolbox ever since. Professional, intelligent, and efficient, I highly recommend him to any author hoping to take their work to the next level.”
