5 Steps from Blank Page to Polished Draft
Because of Kelly’s sharp, insightful editing, my first book has won two awards, was featured in 0, The Oprah Magazine, and has generated more than 50 speaking engagements.Friedemann Schaub, M.D., Ph.D.
I want to build a shrine for Kelly. She magically transformed my confusing storylines and sometimes pure nonsensical utterances into something intelligible that everyone can enjoy and understand.Gopi Kallayil Chief Brand Evangelist, Google
Kelly is no doubt a major reason why my book has been so well received in my profession. As a result, Love Under Repair has opened doors for my local business, and has already provided a major influx of business within months of launch.Keith Miller, LICSW Director, Keith Miller & Associates Counseling
Kelly’s editing skills made my words spring to life. Publishing my book has made a huge difference in my life. It’s increased my confidence about my course material tenfold. And my Guidance to Go retreat is booked solid. Thank you!Bridget Engels
