“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. You have been amazing to work with. Encouraging, supportive, accessible, pushy, critical and supremely helpful. Perfect combo of all of these things. I couldn’t imagine what a clusterf*ck of a book proposal I would have had on my hands without you. I really wanted to make sure I had the best shot at a publishing deal, and you’ve gotten me there.” —Patsy Mennuti, author of Hella Cougar
“I couldn’t have found a better editor to help me with preparing my book proposal in order to query literary agents. I remember our first zoom meeting to see if we were a good match. I thought she was fantastic from the very beginning. It’s as though she really understood my story and the message I was trying to put out into the world. As a brand-new writer, I froze in the middle of working on my book and felt as though maybe I really couldn’t do this. Emily talked me down off that ledge in a way that gave me great confidence to keep going and complete my work. The proposal was finally ready for submission to literary agents in September of 2021 and by November 2021 I received an offer of representation from an agent out of one of the largest literary agencies in the world! You will not regret for second having her help with your literary dreams. Emily K., you’re one of a kind, I’m so thankful our paths crossed! You are the REAL DEAL young lady! I will shout you out every chance I get!” —Monica Hall, author of School of Hard Knocks: Overcoming the disappointment of attending a for-profit college (on submission, rep: Kat Kerr at Donald Maass Literary Agency)
“Emily is an absolute GEM. It was a pleasure to work with her. Not only was she straightforward and knowledgeable, but she was also encouraging throughout the entire process. The transformation from the initial proposal I sent Emily, to the final draft is truly remarkable. This service is worth every penny, and I am SO glad I took the leap!” —Antasha Durbin Solomon, author of Are You on the Right Track? 101 Letters from the Universe and runner-up in the 2021 Hay House Writer’s Workshop contest
“Emily was the right hire from the start and she never disappointed. Her commitment throughout this process never let up. She always brought good ideas, fixes, etc to the project. She has so much wisdom into the craft that it elevated my work to a height I didn’t expect. Because of our working relationship on this contract, I’ve hired her for other work as well.” —Phil Svitek, author of Elan, Elan (2022)
“Emily was phenomenal! An expert at her craft! She was great at helping me formulate and organize my thoughts and align them with a core message. I very much enjoyed my sessions and appreciate how Emily maximized the use of our time.” —Valerie Hall
“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.” —Jordan Power, author of Famous Anus (2021)
“I want to thank you for the job you have done to make my work look great! Really, I am so impressed with how everything fits together and has a nice flow.

I love your approach and you always seem to offer just the right amount of encouragement.” —Cate Gongos, author of The Soul Seeker’s Journey card deck
“[Emily and I] hit it off from day one. She seemed to read my mind and know exactly what I needed and wanted. She helped me drastically improve my rough outline and book proposal.

“I loved working with [Emily]. I valued her feedback plus her humor while line editing my manuscript. She did an amazing job polishing up my manuscript. I felt as if Emily dove into my story as if it were her own. There were many times it seemed as if she was in my mind, to know how I felt in that particular moment in my story. I see Emily as very skilled in her writing and very sharp with her mind to be able to jump into a person’s experience as if she was there. She did a great job educating me about writing and she was always there to answer any questions I had. Emily truly is the best and she was the perfect editor for me. I honestly knew I was in good hands.” —Dawn W.

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.” – Francesco Samarelli, author of KIS & Love Yourself: 10 Skills to Self-Love
“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.” —Peter Saucier, author of Premonitions of a Lucid Dreamer (2020)
“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.” —Brad Ginesin, author of The Trading Desk (2020, Outskirts Press)

Her kindness, support, and exceptional matching skills kicked off my experience … in such a powerfully positive a way! …Because of her, I got the opportunity to work with a book coach who helped me achieve seemingly impossible goals.” —Gloria H.
