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.
