    Katie recently edited one of my manuscripts, and I strongly recommend her services. I've worked with several great editors, and Katie is among the best.

    I found her rates very affordable. She books in advance and sticks to the schedule--my book was edited in a week. First half of payment is due up front to book the slot, with the second half after the edit is complete.

    Katie has a strong eye for details and consistency and saved me from making several embarrassing mistakes left over from my personal edit. There was one instance where I used the wrong character's name and another where I referenced a one-eyed character using his eyes (plural). She was very good about consistency throughout the manuscript and also typed up a series style guide for me!

    Katie did a great job! If you're looking for a copyeditor, I strongly recommend her, and I hope to use her services again.

    I am usually pretty reserved/shy when it comes to partaking in conversations or threads, hence why most will likely not recognize my name. I did want to stop in here, though, and offer my recommendation to use Katie as an editor. Not only is she efficient with her time slots, she provides wonderful notes and has a great attention for detail.

    I published my first novel this year in August and had hired a previous editor for the book However, after I received the copy back, I changed many aspects of the novel itself, and practically undid a lot of the prior editors work. A complete newbie move, but there you have it. I dont recommend doing that. ;) The book itself far exceeded my expectations, but there were a LOT of comments about the poor editing (again, nothing to do with the previous editor, it was all me and my last minute changes), so I knew I would need to have it fixed.

    Katie was looking to take on a few more clients and I was eager to have my novel edited again, so it was the perfect timing. Katie gave me some amazing feedback and had my book edited within a timely manner. She caught quite a few mistakes I had missed, especially when considering audience (American spelling vs Canadian), and noted a few places in the book that were confusing or didnt make sense (ex: character was sitting, but then suddenly standing in the next paragraph without transition, etc.)

    Needless to say, I used her again for book 2, and hope to continue using her services. Katies rates are fair, you will receive a quality edit, and she will respect your time. So, thank you, Katie!

    Good morning, kboards!

    I've spent the morning adding new sticky notes to my beloved Chicago Manual of Style. Toward/towards? Subject-verb agreement? How to punctuate scare quotes at the end of dialogue? No worries--I got you!

    February is filling up quick. Reach out here, through my website, or at kingofkaties AT gmail DOT com royaleditorialinbox[at]gmail[dot]com to discuss your next project!

    Hey kboards! How's your 2019 going so far? My big change this year is taking advantage of Wattpad for feedback on my first drafts. It's going well so far and motivating me to get those words at a steady clip.

    Editing-wise, I'm booking for March. I'm an industry professional with three years of in-house experience under my belt, but I much prefer working with you guys.

    Send me an email at kingofkaties AT gmail DOT com royaleditorialinbox[at]gmail[dot]com to chat about your next project!

    Katie did a fantastic job editing another book for me. She even remembered a few details from the first book I had forgotten and once again saved me from making some humorous mistakes. She also uses a style guide for the series and updated it for this book. Very useful. I highly recommend Katie and plan to use her again for my next book.
