Testimonials

“I just received a letter from the Los Angeles Black Book Expo! Dear Diary...Letters from Lana won an award for Best Fiction! I owe you, Kathy! I really can’t thank you enough! The following is the verbiage they provided on how winners were selected: ‘A jury of educators and book industry professionals were used to objectively select winners and finalists for the award based on editorial excellence, professional production, originality of the narrative, and the value of the book to its genre!’ As you can see from the verbiage provided by the expo, you are a winner as well! Thanks again, Kathy, for helping to make this all possible!”

—James Carter, Repario Ltd., BuildingTeams.com


“Finally, one of the most prestigious Philadelphia newspapers, Chestnut Hill Local, has published the PR about my program you wrote.”

“As I expected I got ‘many redlines’ but the clean version is superb! Thank you for your professional edits of the MBA candidate's essays. You responded with patience although the schedule was pretty tight and some of the essays were longer than the contracted words. I am again impressed by your professional work and my client thanked your work and is very satisfied.”

—Rumi Takizawa, editing Japanese translations

“I am writing this message to tell you how important your work is to my career. I am lucky that I found a good editor like you. Do you remember Leverhulme Fellowship that I applied for? It is the one that I managed to meet the deadline thanks to your last minute help. Today, I received a letter of acceptance. It is partially due to your careful editing.”
—Jung Won Sonn, editing of Korean translations


“I really, really appreciate all your help. I think you’re the ‘missing piece’ that I needed to make the puzzle of my book complete. I'll keep you posted on my progress and will gladly send you a copy once the book is published…. I just heard back from iUniverse on Sunspot Baby. The review allows for a maximum of 545 points, with 485 minimum required for Editor's Choice designation. I'm happy to tell you that, thanks in no small part to your help, I scored 530—including 75 out of 75 on the grammar and punctuation section.”

—John San Filippo, copyediting Sunspot Baby


“We will do more work together, absolutely.  I just got the cards in today and they look great. Your writing style is very different from mine, and that is a good thing. I am not quite a salesperson and you bring that influence into our little projects. Thank you!”

—Friday Shamblen, Alluminaire Lighting, postcard  copywriting
