I've worked with Kelly on multiple novels across many genres of romance. Her attention to detail is unparalleled, and her feedback has been invaluable for each book. 10/10 would recommend having her give any project a lookover before publication.

When I began to search for an editor, some key factors I looked for were having a good relationship between the two of us to produce a successful publication, and I needed prompt and professional communication. She guided me through the editing process while never changing the style or voice of my work. Yet, she showed me areas where I could express myself better, more succinctly, and helped to look at my work from a distance. But the most important factors to me were truthful communication of timelines, affordable cost to edit, and genuinely having my interests at heart.
