<h1 style="color:white">Hi there, I’m Emily!</h1>

Hi there, I’m Emily!

First impressions are everything, and in today’s world of publishing, that’s true now more than ever. Self-publishing has opened up an entire universe of access for readers and writers alike, which means it’s even more imperative for your work to stand out from the flood of other work published every day, especially if you’re planning on going the traditional route. That’s where I come in.

I am a storyteller at heart, with years of experience in writing, editing, journalism, and both self and traditional publishing. I see a story everywhere I look, and I’ve felt the urge to tell those stories from a young age. I have a keen eye for grammar, errors, continuity, characterization, and narrative flow. I read extensively both for work and on my own time, and I know exactly what separates a good book from an exceptional one.

I am here to help you take your writing—whether it’s a short story, literary nonfiction piece, self-help guide, or full-length novel—to that next level. I work closely with my clients to ensure the final result is exactly what you have envisioned, if not more. 

Writing a book is an intimately personal process, and no two people go about it in exactly the same way. As a writer myself, I know just how much trust is required to hand over the creative reins to someone else. I strive to build that trust with each of my clients by tailoring each coaching or editing experience to fit your needs as an individual. I’m here to be a part of your team, so together, we can sculpt and polish your work until it gleams.

We hired Emily to proofread about fifteen 7,500-word documents. Despite the volume of the task, she always delivered her work on time and with great attention to detail. Communicating with her was simple and productive, and she easily adapted to the idiosyncrasies of our product. We would definitely work with her again!

Emily is fantastic. A true aficionado. She left me with lessons that will last me a lifetime. Her greatest strength is in looking at 30,000 feet and noting flaws in the arc/development. She is also great at finding themes, some of which I didn't even know existed. She will make you grow and push you to a new level if you're willing to work hard.

I’ve worked with Emily Krempholtz on several book editing projects now, and I’ve come to appreciate her dedication, attention to detail, and ability to thoroughly dive and understand the needs of each project. Emily is a valuable asset to my writing projects! Best of all, her honest and clear coaching is making me a better writer as she helps me understand both my strengths and weaknesses. Looking forward to the next project!

“Something in the way Emily described herself as a storyteller caught my interest for assistance with my novel — and this was incredibly fortunate for me. Throughout our time working together, her ideas to improve my story just blew me away, and helped take my book to the next level. She also has an incredible ability for editing with a remarkable literary instinct. Also remarkable was the amount of work she accomplished in the hours worked. Emily’s professionalism, wit, and humor made working with her a pleasure. I wouldn’t be able to recommend Emily more enthusiastically.”

Emily Krempholtz literally walked me by my hand from my extremely rough manuscript to a polished, edited, professional version of my self-help memoir and even uploaded it for me on Amazon after countless passes. What did Emily do exactly? She made my words come to life. She, with my permission, took my manuscript and created a piece worth reading. She corrected every single detail and touched every sentence with power and grace. She isn’t your average Editor, Writer or Coach. She is extraordinary. Why is she so extraordinary? Because she genuinely cares. She jumped into this project with all she has and made it her mission to help deliver a book that can help others. On top of that. She formatted my book exactly the way I wanted and added her professional touch to it. Emily. Words will never express how grateful, thankful and honored I am to have found you and worked with you. This is just the beginning of our writing/working relationship.”

Emily wore steel toed boots to kick me and cracked a whip when I made too many mistakes... Seriously, her sensible suggestions and added phrases and lines in narrative and dialogue are a simple and clear learning tool for writers. You know your story by heart, but sometimes forget that the reader does not, until you cover the basics of who, what and most importantly, why the characters act the way they do and what it means to them—and the reader.
