What sold me was Kathrese’s approach. Instead of editing my novel in its entirety, she edited it in sections so I could apply what I learned to the next section before sending it to her. And learn a lot I did, from strengthening characters to the finer points of style and wording. No question that I will go to her in the future.
"Kathrese blew me away with an almost superhuman attention to detail for everything from grammar to quietly lurking formatting issues. I never want to release a title she hasn't had her eyes on."
—Nancy Kimball, author of Chasing the Lion
As a debut author, I knew how crucial it was to have a polished manuscript to pitch to agents and publishers. I also knew that editing was not my strong suit. Kathrese not only made that process bearable, but enjoyable. She was wonderful to work with, taking the time to explain her suggestions and offering invaluable advice. Without her assistance I wouldn't have landed my first publishing contract. She's definitely a go-to editor for any author.
"I have given over my manuscripts and my self esteem to Kathrese, my writing and critique partner, and she miraculously improves both! Not only does she ferret out my inconsistencies and plot convolutions, but she also handles my sensitive writer’s ego with care and gentleness. She’s a detail-oriented editor for writers who need a logical, linear thought process applied to their fiction.”
—Laura Anderson Kurk, author of Glass Girl and Perfect Glass, and managing editor of Birch House Press
Kathrese and I have worked together for over a year, and Kathrese’s critiques of my books-in-progress have been insightful. She is great at catching my slip-through mistakes and helping me shape my stories’ logical progression toward great creative works. Even though I am an editor myself it is paramount to have eyes on my books that are not blinded by familiarity. Kathrese has generously given me this and more. I definitely recommend her services.
Thank you, Kathrese! Lance and Quill and Falcon Heart would not be what they are without you.
