“Thank you, Karen, for being so creative with the story and so professional in editing. Love your work and working with you.”—Picture Book Author
“… to have you pick out the exact thing that makes the sentence sing, or anchors the thought is beyond just helpful. I think it is inspirational … But most importantly, I think, is that I am once again excited about the story! Thank you so much for that.”—Young Adult Novel Author
“I want to tell you how grateful I am for your focus on this writing. You did do your homework with each page, and sometimes I know that was not easy. I used an editor on another work about fifteen years ago and I could tell he was not ‘listening’ to the story at all and would never have helped as much as you have.”—Adult Nonfiction Author
