What clients are saying

"If I could give 10 stars I would. Working with Karolyn was the absolute best. I am a first time author and had no clue where to start. She helped me tremendously through the process. She is very thorough with her work and her feedback is phenomenal. She welcomes and answers all questions and will even provide resources when needed. I will definitely be working with Karolyn again in the near future on new work. Thank you for all your help."

"Karolyn is amazing. I hired her to work on a non-fiction manuscript and her work far exceeded my expectations. She is a skillful editor and great to work with. In hardly anytime at all, she flawlessly edited my manuscript and did a tremendous job with interior formatting. Karolyn has amazing technical ability but what impressed me the most was her encouragement, thorough feedback, and kindness. I would highly recommend! I highly recommend."
