As a first-time author for young adult fiction, I feel blessed knowing that my first book was edited by Kristen. She dove into my story as if it were her own—caring about the characters and scene development while putting everything in its proper place like a symphonic movement. We worked together beautifully, ebbing and flowing throughout the process of book development. She was unwaveringly professional with extraordinary attention to detail, and I would highly recommend her. Thank you!
The novels in my series wouldn't have been the same without the services of Kristen Chavez. Her attention to detail and knowledge of proper elements of style were far above what I had experienced with previous editors. But what really struck me was her commitment to the story, my story, and to making sure my voice remained preserved in the improvements that she suggested to the manuscript. Kristen wasn't just interested in making the words grammatically correct, she was interested in the story itself and the development of the characters. She worked at an impressive pace and delivered a final product that was more polished and, in the end, still felt like MY book. I can't recommend her services more!

Wow, Kristen, what a beautiful, thorough job you've done [on the editorial report]. I love your layout and content, very much an educator's intent for a writer. This report alone is quite valuable, with the particular skill set and sensitivity that the best line editing requires. I chose the right editor ---- you have an eagle eye for things I cannot see because of long acquaintance with what I have meant to say. It has been a pleasure working with your edits today.

Kristen did an outstanding job editing my novel. She embraced the job with enthusiasm and worked collaboratively to help me improve my manuscript. She listened carefully to the story I wanted to tell and offered concise suggestions that didn't alter my voice. Kristen’s hard work and attention to detail were significant assets in helping me to prepare my novel for publication. I would highly recommend her.
