I'll be the first to admit that I'm not alone in my field. It seems that everywhere I look, there are private editors or companies who are competing against me for your business. In a market this competitive, there must be something to set me apart from the others.
Below, a list of things that gives me a cutting edge against the rest. Why should you hire me?
1. I have over a decade of experience helping others in their publishing quests.
Since my experience in the writing/editing field began in 2003, I have helped others publish an ever-growing list of books, both self-published and traditionally published. I have astounding qualifications, an impressive portfolio, and a flawless mastery of the complexities of the English language—and from that, I have become a reputable manuscript editor for first-time and veteran authors. To date, I have edited over 300 books for traditionally and self-publishing authors, several of which have won awards and become Amazon bestsellers.
2. I teach authors how to become better writers.
Each of my editing services comes with a free Editor's Report, a 1-page letter highlighting the most common issues I found during editing, geared toward showing you how to avoid your most common writing mistakes to become a better writer.
Having come from a family full of teachers, I am ingrained with the desire to help authors improve their writing skill: I post blogs and Facebook Live videos every Friday on various topics in the writing/publishing industry. I am always available (via e-mail, phone, or in person if applicable) to help my clients with providing advice, offering suggestions, and answering questions about the publishing industry.
With every manuscript editing service I provide, I provide my clients with my time, my dedicated attention, and my meticulous editing skills. I spend countless hours working alongside authors to help improve their writing style, and I am available to my clients for questions, feedback, or advice about the publishing industry—and that's a valuable tool.
In short, I'm the editor to select if you are serious about your writing career, and want to publish a quality book.
3. I respond fast!
I make it a goal to respond as quickly as possible to your queries or e-mails. With other editors, you may find yourself waiting hours or even days for a response. I pride myself on my communication and friendliness, and I believe that prompt responses are key to success.
4. When you choose Kristen Corrects, you work with me (Kristen)...and JUST me.
I am the sole owner/employee of Kristen Corrects, Inc., so the only person you’ll be working with during this entire process is me (e-mails, phone calls, all editing—everything). I get entirely involved and dedicated to an author’s manuscript, and love offering that level of personalized service.
I know firsthand that working with just one person gives you more personalized service and a sense of partnership. My goal is to build a working collaboration with you and help you succeed in publishing your best book. Because of this partnership, my clients come back to me again and again. I have a substantial amount of testimonials that mention my impressive willingness to help.
5. I am always friendly, helpful, and grateful for your work.
You will never see an e-mail from me that doesn't end with the words "thank you." Regardless of whether your project costs $50 or $5000, you will always receive my genuine gratitude.
I hope to hear from you! Send me an e-mail and tell me about your project, and I can tell you how I can help.
