what clients say

"After an exhaustive search for a content editor for my first book, I was lucky enough to find Kristen. Kristen is a true professional! She was transparent, punctual, knowledgeable, and informative. Kristen took the time to explain her craft in a way that a newbie like me could understand and use for the future. My experience with Kristen has been so educational for me, and I would recommend her to anybody!"

— Michael Pearsall, Author, Purposeful Leadership for a Total Engagement Culture

"Your edit is a gift! You're doing exactly what I hoped you would be doing: copy editing, mixed with excellent content editing. I also love your suggestions and questions—makes me think deeper about the messages I'm trying to convey and how to better communicate them."

— J., Business Book Author and Tech Director at a Fortune 500 Company

"Kristen worked with me on editing my manuscript (which was originally a collection of blogs) into a solid book. She was efficient, resourceful, and collaborative, and really served as a consultant in addition to editor. Kristen hooked into my message and target audience and worked with me on tightening up a manuscript I felt proud to deliver to the marketplace."

— Stacey Rosenfeld, PhD, Author, Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder? Challenging Our Nation’s Fixation with Food and Weight 

"I came to Kristen for advice on writing and marketing my first non-fiction book. After reading my notes, she critiqued my concepts, helped me identify my hook, and encouraged me to focus by thinking about my target audience while writing. She was very helpful to me in clarifying what I wanted to say. Now, less than a year later, I’ve finished my first self-help book. I highly recommend her services as a coach to new and developing writers."

— Jeffrey Bergman, Author, Perfect At Our Core: 4 Steps to Overcome Self-Judgment and Feel More Comfortable with Yourself

"Thank you so much for your time and comments. I found them to be very helpful and positive, much more so than any of the other feedback I’ve received."

— L., Aspiring memoirist
