"Her professionalism, support, attention to detail, hard work, prompt replies, answering all our questions, suggestions - you name it, that's Kristen! After she completed our project, Kristen stayed close by helping us through the next steps of publishing. Kristen is not just our professional editor, but our friend - who played a huge role in making a dream come true."
- Jason Fitzgerald & Vijay Natarajan, authors of Crunching Numbers
“I was absolutely blown away by the high quality of Kristen's work and ethic. She went above and beyond what I expected from an editor, and clearly had my best interests in mind."
She was professional in her dealings, tactful in the handling of manuscript improvement issues, genuine and encouraging with her feedback, and punctual with meeting her promised deadlines. It's clear she loves her job and helping writers achieve success.
"Most importantly, she cares about her client’s work and career. If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about your work, wants to see you succeed and will set you up for success, Kristen is the one you want to work with. Her attitude, personality, professionalism and knowledge are the reasons why I chose her over all the other editors out there. I will continue to work with Kristen as I am now and I can tell you with full confidence that you won’t regret your decision when you work with her!"
- Gurpreet K. Sidhu, author
"Kristen is a joy to work with. I mostly appreciate how she instinctively knows what my [writing] voice is and the way I use it. I don’t think she ever had to ask for that. It’s uncanny how she just knows."
- Kat Hibbard, author of the Chubby Chasers trilogy
"To say that Kristen is really good at what she does would be a huge understatement. Kristen was honest, professional and extremely knowledgeable. She gave me the hard truth about my work, which is exactly what I needed. I had to make some significant changes to my first manuscript, but Kristen 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 as if I were her only client, even though I wasn’t. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to get quality work and the total package as it relates to editing services."
- Maurice Belfonté, author of The Foreigner
"Kristen has the ability to pay attention both to the small flaws in a manuscript as well as to capture the big picture. She provides clear and specific instructions on how to place back story, lengthy descriptions, etc. in their proper place. Kristen is professional, has an excellent work ethic and delivers when she promises. I will definitely hire Kristen again.”
- Alicia Anderson, author of On Daring and Life
I could not have asked for a better experience working with Kristen...this would never have been possible without her and I can never thank her enough for her work on the project. I am eternally grateful for everything and can’t wait to send her my next book.
"Her patience and thorough attention to my books, along with her 'delicate' education via websites and helpful articles, helped shape me as a writer as well as helped to bring my books to their fullest potential. She's a great asset to any author and I highly recommend her completely!"
- Susan B. Roara, author of The Right Family series
"Her skillful weeding of excess transformed my book into a fast paced novel. She was positive, friendly and easy to work with. The whole experience has been enjoyable and educational.”
"She thoroughly and effectively gave useful guidance ranging from word choice, to plot-threading. And at all times she did so with a level of care that demonstrates that she does indeed understand just how personal any manuscript is to the one who writes it.
I could go on at length about Kristen's superb mastery of the language, and her understanding of the brick and mortar that forms the written word. But the truth is, that is not why I recommend her. You can get that from many editors. A wise man once said that people will not remember exactly what you say to them, but they will remember forever how you make them feel. 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.”
- Bryan Shewmaker, author of Providence Ends
Kristen is one of the most talented, lovely, grounded and 'nice' literary people I have ever met. We work as a team. She tolerates my occasional flurry of insecurity emails very well. Her advice is easily given and always pertinent. Work with her! Your book will improve greatly. A million thank yous, Kristen!
- Sharon Romm, MD, author
"Kristen is flexible, does her best to accommodate all your needs, and she is always quick to reply to any questions with plenty of educational information. I am most grateful for the constructive feedback she provided on the first draft of my manuscript. If it wasn't for her, I would have never pushed myself and fully developed the plot.
Kristen has given me hope, clever tips and shared some invaluable contacts to begin my journey to get published. She is a pro with a friendly approach who goes above and beyond her job description. Thank you so much!"
- Flaminia Ciocca, author
“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 based on her years of experience."
Grisham, author of The King’s Sun
