Testimonials

"Working with KC on my contemporary YA novel has been life-altering. With her guidance, my manuscript is reaching levels that I only dreamed of achieving, and it’s so much closer to the story I set out to tell. KC’s feedback is impeccable and professional, and she has a phenomenal instinct for storytelling. She digs into your writing to the deepest level, yet somehow her turnaround time is lightning fast.

If you are querying a manuscript that isn’t getting the attention you’d hoped, or if you’re in the middle of a draft and something’s not quite what you envisioned but you’re not sure how to implement meaningful changes, you need to get KC on your team. This is more than an editorial service—it’s a career boost that will shave months or even years off your path to publication." -Brianna Bourne, YA Author

“KC’s advice brought my manuscript back to life. I was at the point of giving up, but she helped me figure out what was wrong and how to fix it. And although this meant major revisions needed to be done, she helped me take things step-by-step, so I never felt overwhelmed. She taught me the importance of asking “why?,” and I’m amazed by the impact this has had on my writing. She was always available when I had questions or needed encouragement, and I’m so fortunate to have been able to work with her.” -Katie Bono, YA Author

“Working with KC was a true delight. Her professionalism, suggestions and attention to detail made the process of editing my book a breeze. Did I mention her turnaround was better than promised?  I’m already outlining other projects for her to tackle. Thank you KC!” -Heather Piper, Non-fiction Client

“When I worked with KC Karr through the Write Mentor program, she not only helped me polish my work, but she coached me through the process of fleshing out my characters' motivations and backstories, caring for them as if they were real people in her head, not only in mine. She's an enthusiastic and tireless editor, who doesn't quit until the story is at its very best. I never expected such dedication and introspection. After working with KC, I'm confident when handing over my work to agents and editors, because I know it's the very best that it can be.” -Dana Faletti, YA Author
