What Clients Are Saying


   “I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with
   Kathy. From our first exchange to our last, Kathy was professional, 
   her responses were prompt, and she was such a pleasure to work
   with. Her insight as a developmental editor is priceless. The 
   suggestions she provided were thoughtful and are sure to make my
   book significantly better.”
Dayna Reed, author   

   “We were first-time authors and were worried about where to go for
   editing. We found Kathy Carter and are so glad we did. She was
   meticulous, understanding, and patient with us. She made so many
   great suggestions on how we could make our book better. The
   finished product was excellent. We will use her again!"
John and Laura Roach, authors   

   “I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to refer Kathy's editing services.
   She was professional, thorough, and completed her edits in the time
   frame promised. She took my rough manuscript and made numerous
   brilliant suggestions to increase its clarity and organization. Her
   detailed advice was invaluable to me. I have no hesitation saying
   that Kathy made my book, Time Well Spent, the best it could be. I
   couldn't have done it without her expertise. I will be using her in
   future projects!”
Jodie Norton, author   
   
   “Kathy Carter is a pro! I'm so thrilled I worked with her. She helped
   me better position my book for marketability and then cleaned up my      words and thoughts in a way that kept my reputation in check as I
   presented my book to the world. I self-published, but many people
   have asked me how much of a book advance I received because they
   couldn’t tell the book wasn’t put out by a major publisher. I highly
   recommend Kathy.”
Jason Blake, author

   a gem. 
Debbie Koch Kirsch, author   

   “I've been looking at your comments and am quite impressed. You
   have been able to provide valuable perspective on how this might 
   flow better, not to mention many 'spot on' comments in the text to
   tighten things up. Thank you.”
John Llewellyn, author   

   “I want to thank you again for all your comments and suggestions. 
   You have given me a lot to think about. You clarified a lot of issues 
   that were nagging at the back of my mind, pointed out others I 
   hadn’t focused on, and gave valuable guidelines for addressing them 
   all... I really appreciate your hard work on this.” 
Karen McCann, author   

   “I just wanted to write and reiterate how much I enjoyed working
   with you... The manuscripts benefitted tremendously from your
   meticulous and caring edits. I appreciated your responsiveness and

   “Working with you has been a very positive experience and made 
   me look at the book with fresh eyes, which is hard to do when 
   you’re the author and absorbed in the content every day.” 
Monica Vest Wheeler, author   

   “I just want to thank you again for your fine work. I'm amazed how
   often I write something illogical, out of order, or nonsensical. You 
   find it where I wouldn't if I read it a hundred times.” 
Alan Barber, author   

   “You are a wonder woman!”
Amy Fritson-Coffman, author   

   “I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kathy. Her experience and
   expertise helped to shape my book and polish it to a high standard.
   She also gave excellent advice regarding the structure of my book
   and was on hand with suggestions of how to improve it. I thoroughly
   recommend Kathy as an editor — you won’t regret it!”
Stephanie Caswell, author   

   “Kathy Carter has been a wonderful developmental editor. She has
   helped me to organize the flow of my narrative, improve the sensory 
   details, and keep the story focused with just the right amount of
   necessary background information in the opening pages. Without
   Kathy's help, my memoir would have fallen short in all these realms.
   I'm truly grateful for her attention to detail—both the big and small
   ones.” 
Susan Blumberg-Kason, author   

   “Working with Kathy has been a pleasure! She has a great eye for
   detail, provides constructive feedback, and asks important questions
   to gain clarity... In fact, she corrected errors that another editor had
   missed. Her efforts are truly appreciated!”
Norma Nerstrom, author   

   “Kathy edited two nonfiction e-books for me and made valuable
   suggestions about book structure... I highly recommend her for your
   book editing.”
Michael Gulett, author   

   “Kathy did a very professional and thorough job editing my book...
   We had two authors’ writing styles that had to be meshed into one
   voice, as well as numerous technical details about using quotes, 
   how to format the manuscript for publication, and much more. 
   Kathy guided us through the whole process and made it easy to
   follow. I had a wonderful experience working with her!”
Lisa Shasky, author

   looking for as an editor.”
Cyndi Streid, author   

   “Kathy Carter can take a piece of writing and make it stronger, 
   clearer, and more appealing.”
Michael W. Brown, author   

   “Working with Kathy was a pleasure. Her work was excellent, on
   time, and affordable. She understood what my book was trying to
   achieve and made fantastic edits and provided valuable ideas. I 
   look forward to working with her again soon.” 
Joel Kelly, author   

   “I've worked with Kathy on several occasions, and she always does
   a fantastic job. She is very easy to work with. Kathy is an editor that
   I know I can trust because she knows her stuff. I will definitely be 
   using her services again.” 
Florin Guerrier, President, Benevolent Butterfly Press   
 
   “Kathy has done editing for me twice, and I will return to her with 
   my third book as well. I found her a pleasure to work with and
   extremely professional. She did what she said, in the time frame
   discussed, and gave me even more than she promised. I would be
   pleased to recommend Kathy to anyone needing professional editing
   work done. An extraordinary service at a spectacular value.”
Lisa Schilling, RN, CPT, author
