Scroll down for testimonials and links by genre. I’m happy to do a free sample edit of up to 1,000 words.

Fiction Manuscripts:

YA Novel:

“The suggestions you made were great!  They allowed me to rethink what I really wanted to convey and write it better so that the reader gets the point.  Giving the other characters names not only makes them seem more real but it also helped me to better define their personality and behavioral traits.  Touching on the 5 senses also helped me to describe the situation or environment better so that the reader could visualize the place or empathize with the character, if they wanted. I dearly love my story now ever more than before.  Your critique was dead on and kindly presented. I will use your help on future manuscripts.”

And for the sequel: “It looks like, once again, with your help, I have produced a book that the audience is extremely happy to read.  The reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles as well as Goodreads websites, so far, are beyond what I could have imagined, especially since I struggled with trying to make this book equal to or better than the first book. Thanks so much for all of your help.  I really can’t do this without you.”


“Kate is very professional and promptly responds to questions and comments. She finished the work ahead of schedule and offered valuable insight in addition to the proofreading she was hired to do. Will definitely hire her again.”

Non-Fiction Manuscripts:

Non-fiction Book (Numerology), 71,000 words

“I highly recommend her, not only is she very intelligent, but she’s also a perfectionist when it comes to her work. She has a great passion for it and it shows.”

Into the Fringe, non-fiction by Karla Turner, second printing

“Would definitely recommend. Fast and professional work manner, delivered long before the deadline with a precise and accurate understanding of what was required for the project. Very satisfied with my choice here.”

Memoir, 53,000 words

“She did a wonderful job. I am very pleased with her work and will rehire right away for next job.”

Poetry Manuscripts:

“Kate is a skilled editor and I have no reservations in recommending her.  She made solid insightful suggestions, gave constructive commentary and provided me with a non-biased perspective.  As a poet herself, she was sensitive to my voice and really took my rhythms into account.  I was very pleased with her work on my poetry collection and will be using her again for future projects.”

“I am thrilled to have stumbled upon Kate Kearns when looking for an editor. I was a bit leery of the price and process involved with having an editor look at my work, but I’ve been pleased on both accounts. Kate’s rates are very reasonable and I could not be more pleased with her professionalism and work. Having a good editor is making me a better writer. I look forward to working with Kate again in the future.” 

“I can’t say enough great things about Kate. She has gone above and beyond in supporting me with my picture book. She is extremely patient, thorough, intelligent, and fun to work with! She’s got a great eye and caught some important mistakes with her attention to detail. She is creative and has an artistic openness with poetry and writing. She has been a blast to brainstorm with and has offered some excellent words and suggestions. She is very talented and I’m so thankful someone recommended her to me. You can tell how much she enjoys writing and she takes her projects and commitments seriously. She is an editor with warmth and heart and that’s not always easy to find. Highly recommend working with her!”

E-Book Editing

Julie Schooler: “They say when you are searching for an editor that it will be a bit like dating and you won’t find the best one first time. They were wrong! I am so glad Kate agreed to edit my first book. She is a fabulous proof-reader and grammar expert. But more than that, she adds a few suggestions here and there and tweaks the language of my non-fiction books so that they still have my voice and sound like me, but have a professional edge added to them. She has now worked her editing magic on four of my books and I couldn’t be happier with her editing skills, quick turn around times and clear communication. My books get great reviews and sell well because Kate has proven her worth time and again as my editor.”

Clydebank Media: “Kate is extremely professional and provides high quality editing services in an amazingly quick turn around.”

    I needed Kate to edit my son’s book in one week which was over 71,000 words. She was able to do what she promised. I highly recommend her, not only is she very intelligent, but she’s also a perfectionist when it comes to her work. She has a great passion for it and it shows. Thank you Kate !
