Permissions Consulting Testimonials
They accomplished in a couple of months what I tried to accomplish for two years. I was kept informed of every step in the process.
June hired GSF to secure permission for her to use song lyrics in an essay she was submitting for publication.
Kelly was instrumental in helping me research public domain photos and even creating images for my book, Truth. As a first time author, it was a very big deal to have someone on board that knew all the ins and outs of the industry and I cannot thank her enough for her professionalism and timeliness of her work.
I felt comfortable with Kelly as soon as I heard her voice in our phone consultation. She was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I appreciated the clarification and specific suggestions in her follow up email.
Praise for our work...
Christopher was exactly what I was looking for. He is a great biblical scholar of historical criticism who held my writing feet to the fire. The biggest surprise is how good he is as a straight-up editor. It's ironic that I like his red pen more than a few "professional" editors I've worked with. Perhaps all editors should be put through the mandatory rigor of grading students' papers for a few years, as well as writing their own papers for tough professors.
