“Katie was the first to read the first draft of my first science fiction novel and I very nervously awaited her feedback. Thanks to her warm, positive initial evaluation, I decided the project was worthwhile and forged ahead. She provided a manuscript evaluation and editing services that were both meticulous and thoughtful, and that greatly enhanced my drafts. I will not hesitate to hire her again.”

— Brenda Piquette, author of BUHR


“Katie Heffring is a very patient and thorough editor, with a keen understanding of how to edit and publish poetry books. I have been fortunate to have Katie assist me with publishing two poetry anthologies on Amazon as a self-published poet, and I plan to continue employing her expertise in the future. One thing I love about Katie’s work is her ability to offer up her creative perspective and bring the overall feeling of my books to fruition through my book covers. Katie makes publishing a stress-free and valuable learning experience.”

— Sarah Angell, The Rainy Day Poet, author of Notes in C# and Lessons of Love

“I had the pleasure of getting help from Katie on my academic article, and she provided excellent, timely service that was just what I needed. I highly recommend her to any author needing editorial support.”

— James Sacamano, retired physician and psychiatrist

“I ‘found’ Katie through the PEAVI website while looking for a professional editor for my third book. After her sample edit (she wanted to make sure we were on the same page), we discussed the editing services she could best provide to finalize my manuscript for submission to the publisher. The process was simple (through our shared use of Word’s ‘track changes’), with Katie providing detailed grammatical and content critique throughout. Turnaround was on schedule, and her comments were always constructive. Katie is knowledgeable, efficient and friendly — and someone I’d definitely work with again.”

—  B.R. Bentley, author of The Cross, The Bermuda Key, and The Banker’s Box

“We’ve been using Katie’s services for a few years now, and we are very pleased with her professionalism and quick turnaround — something very important when dealing with deadlines in the publishing world.”

— Marina Sacht, publisher / editor, TAKE 5 Print & Digital Media

“I first worked with Katie in my role as managing editor of Editors British Columbia’s blog, westcoasteditor.com. She is a volunteer copy editor for the blog and impressed me with her attention to detail and follow-up. When I needed assistance with two website projects, Katie was the first person I thought of. She helped me ensure that the web copy was correct and consistent, and that the messaging for each website was appropriate and on brand. I have no hesitation in recommending her work and would happily enlist her services again.”

— Amy Haagsma, editor / writer / graphic designer


“Katie has all the skills that an author looks for in a professional editor, but what makes her stand apart is her personable, attentive approach. The work is just as important to her as it is to the author, and I always felt I was in good hands when I worked with her. I have recommended Katie to other writers in the past, and I will continue to do so.”

— Chad Ganske, author of Idyllic Avenue and Salus
