I will be honest – I went looking for an editor full of trepidation, having heard of the many horror stories of pages scrawled with red ink and writers’ tears. I tried out around five editors with a sample chapter edit, and Kisa absolutely stood out (in the best way).

Kisa is a thorough professional who is fantastic at her craft. On top of that, her vast experience has given her a careful business acumen in terms of genre, in particular YA and dystopia, which is invaluable when it comes to making small tweaks for the reader to bring a book up to the next level. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I found Kisa absolutely lovely to work with.

Kisa is an editor in the best sense of the word – one who understands the heart of your story and helps you to make it shine. Thanks to working with her, I have definitely grown as a writer, and I look forward to working with her again.

Kisa edited my debut novel, Sachael Dreams. Her involvement with my writing started with structural edit suggestions. I knew as soon as I saw what she suggested that I HAD to work with her. She understood my story, she saw every sub-plot, every character flaw and weakness. She just ‘got it.’

Kisa never tried to alter my voice, she encouraged me to write more. Her editing of my work was undertaken while we were on different sides of the Atlantic, but even with the time difference, she was regularly available for me to talk to if I had any concerns. Kisa always conducted herself with a high level of professionalism, taking time to understand me, as a person and a writer, as well as my myriad of characters as they came to life on paper.

I am extremely excited about working with her on my future books. I cannot recommend her highly enough, but selfishly want to keep her all to myself.
