For my debut novel I made the perfect decision to choose Kristen Corrects as my editor."

"To say that Kristen is good at what she does would be an understatement. Kristen was honest, professional, gave me the hard truth about my work, and was right there with me throughout the entire process. She was excellent at capturing my overall vision, patient, efficient, superb with her turnaround times, and dedicated to my project. Absolutely recommend her."
– Maurice Belfonté, author of

“Stephen King often speaks of the writer's toolbox, a metaphorical container in which a writer keeps and improves upon their skills and resources. Kristen is a resource that every writer should have in his or her toolbox. Not only is Kristen a fantastic editor, but she strives to help authors develop their craft by offering suggestions and advice."

"Her work on my books gives them a professional polish they would never get with self editing. She’s not afraid to lay out what she thinks will improve your work and is always available with encouragement when you feel overwhelmed. Her knowledge and support is vast and enthusiastically given. I can’t imagine going to anyone else."

If you want to look professional & grab more readers then get your story edited by Kristen! She is my forever editor!"
"Kristen is one of the most talented literary people I have ever met. We work as a team. Her advice is easily given and always pertinent. She is quick to find the heart of the novel, the voice of the main character and the ebb and flow of the plot. She's insightful, always encouraging and literarily very smart."
"I could go on at length about Kristen's superb mastery of the language. But the truth is…you can get that from many editors. Kristen made me feel that I was working with someone who actually cared about the success of my project, rather than someone to whom it was simply a job. If your manuscript is your child, Kristen is the perfect nanny.”

"My major concern during editing was to preserve Baghdaddy’s voice, while improving readability and story focus over several cycles of editing. What made Kristen MY editor was her talent and trust. She’s a top-tier editor with impressive skills, and she respected my ability to tell a story. We trusted each other to do our jobs, and that synergy is apparent on the page."
