Reviews

 

“Kendra polished my manuscript and made it sparkle! I really enjoyed working with Kendra. She provided suggestions and edits that went well beyond spelling and grammar. She really took the time to understand my book and its message. I would highly recommend her services to all aspiring authors.”—Joseph Sanders, Author of Invitation to the Dance of Life

“When you find the right editor, your gut knows it. That was my experience with Kendra. Her editing of my first novel was exactly what was needed, from punctuation to discerning what glitches were in the storyline. Her suggestions made my lump of coal into a diamond. Her sharp eye and attention to detail was exactly what I needed. Now I have a contract with an agent who is sure that a publisher will be forthcoming. Thank you, Kendra!” —Robin Lysne, PhD, Author of five books, including Randine, Letters to a Midwife
