Here's what some of Kristen's clients have said about her:
“Kristen is a keen, savvy editor with an eye for accuracy, grammar and style. Not only does she remain consistent throughout the entire editing process, but she’s helpful and friendly. She worked with me to ensure that my book retained my editorial voice and stayed professional. Her comments were extremely useful and proved that you always need an extra editorial eye for any written material -- she brought up ideas I hadn’t even thought of and I loved them all. I plan on writing more books, and I’ll be using Kristen to edit every single one! Thank you, Kristen! you made my book a masterpiece!"
- Kristen Fischer, freelance writer and author of Creatively Self-Employed: How Writers and Artists Deal with Career Ups and Downs
“I am so lucky to have found Kristen, whom I consider a cool and clear coach for my not-always-so work. She is my strongest writing source, as well as the kindest.”
- Laura Souza Pillarella, personal trainer and author of Worked Over: My Cosmetic Surgery Takeover (Alban Editions, Paris, France, 2007)
“My working relationship with Kristen was pure joy. Not only did she blow me away with her exceptional editing skills and expert constructive feedback, but she made this first-time author feel at home with the sometimes daunting writing process. Kristen took me step-by-step through the editing process and helped me understand the many MS Word functions needed to make the job go smoothly and efficiently. She kept her word with every deadline. I also appreciated her warm, professional, enthusiastic style. She even took the time to answer questions not necessarily related to the project. I'd highly recommend Kristen to anyone in the writing business. I look forward to working with her again!”
- Gary A. Grahl, counselor and author of Skinny Boy (Fall 2007)
What we’re offering in this auction: Editing for up to 200 manuscript pages- No erotica or horror, no GLBT, no spiritistic (eg, vampires, demons, witchcraft, etc) – no judgments implied or intended; Kristen’s just not the right person for these genres.
The bidding starts at $20.00 and I’m giving us a good, long time to work on this one, based on the response to our last editorial offering, so the auction starts NOW and runs until next Sunday, March 25, 2007, at 8PM, CDT. Please keep all bids in increments of $1.00.
Kristen was available immediately a couple weeks ago, but that’s subject to change depending on now long the auction goes on and whether anything has come up for her in the interim – IOW: start date for edit is negotiable.
