“Alan Brown brought my book back to life when I thought it was dead. After working side by side with Alan for five months, I can say without a doubt he gave me the faith and confidence I needed as a first time writer. He believed in me and encouraged me to forge ahead, helping me grow into a better writer.
Now, I’m ready to publish the book I’ve been working on for over ten years. Instead of feeling dread over the writing or my ability as a writer, I’m excited. Alan’s insights into the process are shared from an expert level and command of the English language. I trust him implicitly. Having worked in the upper echelon of the entertainment industry he has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share and a lot of funny stories! He will never disappoint a budding writer or a long time writing veteran needing a fresh perspective. He has a wicked sense of humor to buoy the spirits, even in the darkest times.
I highly recommend Alan. I now have a tight manuscript worthy of any publishers attention.”

Alan is highly experienced in all of these editorials area and he also brings with him the added experience of working on film scripts, developing story ideas for writers and excellent editorial work with writers.”

Frank S Petrilli, Director/Screenwriter/Story Development, Hurricane Development, LLC.

“I’ve often heard the saying: “Novelists make Literature, Playwrights make Art, Screenwriters make Entertainment and TV Writers make Furniture.” Though I am third on this list, I can honestly say that Alan Brown’s keen eye and gentle touch guided my through the perilous world of screenwriting and on to a higher level of writing. Alan has an innate gift that he earnestly shares with detail, insight and patience; I am a better story-teller for it. He has changed my life as a filmmaker, and I am grateful for the time well spent with him through two complex screenplays. My only regret is that I did not audio-record our many, many, many script-conferences — for there are tidbits of precepts, theory and tenets of his own that I use and repeat to myself each day; then there are those that I cannot recall at all. They don’t make “them” like this anymore!” August 31, 2011.

Jamie Ripp, Writer

“I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work with Alan. He brings out the best in me and allows me to keep my own unique voice. He does not settle for second best. He pushes me until he knows he has the best I can give. Alan works with my individual uniqueness and style.” August 30, 2011.

Rob Reuter, Novelist

“Alan, took a raw manuscript and turned it into a well written story. His attention to detail while providing solutions is a cut above. He sets his clients at ease and his integrity is without question. Without any doubt Alan will be a part of my next project!”

Jackie Lewis/Publisherat The Minute Magazine hired Alan as a Writer/Editor in 2009.
“Alan Brown was an absolute Godsend for me the during edits and rewrites of my first work of literary fiction. With his encouragement, I gained both the confidence to write without holding back, and many of the literary tools I needed to develop my characters. His excitement for literature both inspired and encouraged me, and I would recommend him to any fledgling writer that is beginning a literary journey of their own.” August 2, 2011.
