I’ve been privileged to work with Kisa on my short story, Cry of the Windwalker, and my debut novel, Gambit. She is truly an amazing editor. Her insights are brilliant, and she has a keen eye for voice and pacing. She makes suggestions that help improve the quality of my work without compromising the heart of the story. Best of all, she uses a witty, encouraging approach that makes editing seem less like work and more like an adventure.

Kisa is outstanding, both as an editor and as a person, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to improve a manuscript. Just be prepared to get hooked on her editing style. Trust me, it will happen. She’s that good.

Kisa is an awesome editor, and I highly recommend her! We went through a few rounds of edits with my novel Patterns, first focusing on plot and structure, and then in-line edits. She helped me correctly place the genre of the book as YA, which was extremely important for its development.

Kisa thinks deeply about your book and provides expert advice and encouragement. I’m thrilled to say I found my literary agent while working with Kisa, and I owe her much gratitude for her edits, advice on publishing, and support through the querying process.
