BOOKS & PRAISE
"Stephanie has an amazing ability to capture your voice and make sure your personality makes it onto the page. I’m not the most conventional author, and every time I propose some crazy idea, she just rolls with it and makes it work. She also knows how to get to the heart of what you’re trying to say. By the time Stephanie is done with you, you’ll have thought harder about what you do and why you do it than you have in a long time. She is more than just a writer, she’s a true collaborator and partner in crime."
- Gary Vaynerchuk, FIVE-time New York Times bestselling author
"Stephanie is a great writer, and working with her on my first book was truly a pleasure. Writing a book is not easy–there is so much to get in!–but Stephanie was great at organizing everything I had to say and making sure that my voice came through. She was also incredibly patient with my constant changes and editing. I can’t say more about how great she was to work with!"
Lori Greiner, star of Shark Tank and bestselling author of Invent It, Sell It, Bank It! Make Your Million Dollar Idea Into a Reality
"Stephanie is a superb editor, one who makes writers look better than they deserve."
David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and bestselling author of Perfectly Legal
"I would recommend Stephanie and her work to anyone. She is a caring writer, tireless with research, and skilled in organizing all the details. She also demonstrated an outstanding ability to write in my voice. Thank you, Stephanie!"
Dr. Jane Scott, author of The Confident Parent: A Pediatrician's Guide to Caring for Your Little One--Without Losing Your Joy, Your Mind, or Yourself
"Each time I’d read my manuscript I would think about how lucky I was to work with Stephanie. Her writing and eye for detail are just phenomenal. Beyond the quality of her writing, I found her to be an empathetic, highly organized project manager who pushed the book forward despite my hectic international travel schedule. She was a wonderful partner in helping me tell my story, and I would enthusiastically recommend her."
Leila Janah, CEO and founder, Samasource and LXMI, author of Give Work: Reversing Poverty One Job at a Time
"Stephanie embraced my work and knew how to use my clients’ experiences to craft compelling stories that illustrated the concepts and solutions I wanted to share with my readers. She is a magician, a speed maven, and a great, great writer."
Dr. Bonnie Jacobson, author of Renegotiate Your Marriage: Balance the Terms of Your Relationship as It Changes
"Stephanie was a delight to work with and is an extraordinary talent."
Pamela Meyer, bestselling author of Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception
"Stephanie Land works like the best improviser: she helps find “the” voice rather than “her” voice; she listens; she’s fast and agile and she builds a true ensemble with her clients. We loved working with her and hope to do it again."
Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton, authors of Yes, And: Lessons From The Second City
"Stephanie is simply an outstanding writer whom I would recommend to anyone, any time, without hesitation. Her ability to grasp, shape and even enhance a book concept is a clear strength of hers, and her ability to understand an author’s voice is invaluable. I look forward to working with her again on my next book!"
Lisa Bodell, author of Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovative Revolution
"Sidell's account of life as a restaurateur isn't the first or likely the last, but it ranks among the best."

AGENTS & PUBLISHERS
"One thing that is evident from the moment you meet Stephanie is how deeply she cares about her authors and their books. Her professionalism, conscientiousness, and enthusiasm for the job make her a pleasure to work with."
-Lisa DiMona, literary agent, Writers House
"Stephanie Land has been a pleasure to work with at every turn – efficient, organized, and empathetic. She has a true gift for capturing voice and for navigating the many competing priorities of a project, from the author’s vision to the editor’s feedback to the time sensitivity of deadlines. We’ve been lucky to have her on the team."
- Amelia Atlas, literary agent, ICM Partners
"One of my clients hired Stephanie for a big job that required her to not only help shape the concept, but organize a ton of information and advice, and write a book nuts to bolts based on interviews. She did exactly what you want a co-writer to do, from taking over the entire process, listening carefully to the author to understand her wants and desires, and clarifying a lot of complicated information. Plus she writes beautifully! Stephanie invested in the book 100%, and delivered far beyond our expectations. My only complaint about Stephanie Land is that there is only one of her."
- Brandi Bowles, literary agent, United Talent Agency
"I wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie Land and would work with her again in a heartbeat. Her talents for storytelling, for teasing out an author’s argument, and for showcasing his or her voice are unparalleled. What’s more, she’s fast, she’s professional, and she’s consistently upbeat—a real treasure and an asset to any writing project."
- Hollis Heimbouch, VP/Publisher, Harper Business
"Stephanie Land is a gifted editor and writer with an impeccable sense of pace, storytelling, and a pitch perfect ability to capture an author’s voice. And she does it all with perfect aplomb, under the most crushing of deadlines."
- Roger Scholl, VP and Executive Editor, The Crown Publishing Group
"I knew from our first conversation that I’d love working with Stephanie, and she did not disappoint. She is a joy to work with, delivered a great book on time, and from that first moment saw the editorial vision of both the author and the editor. I’d highly recommend working with her whenever possible."
