I feel Katie did an excellent job overall! This was my first book, so I had a lot of editing that needed to be done. I wrote the book several times over an extended time, so there was a lot of repetition and too much detail that I feel she did a great job sorting through. In the beginning we didn’t communicate clearly about time expectations. However, once we cleared that issue up she was awesome at doing all she could to ensure meeting deadlines, which I really appreciated. On the first edit, she missed a couple things like switching tenses, and proper capitalization/editing of headlines, however she brought the tense issue to my attention and went back to fix it for me. She did several edits, correcting tenses and headlines on her second edit. I am satisfied with her work and would hire her again and recommend her to others. Thank you Katie for all your hard work! 🙂

The difference between the manuscript I handed to Katie and the one she handed back after she was done was night and day. I’d be ashamed to give away the raw manuscript for free. Now I’ve got a book worth reading and something I’m proud to put my name on.
Katie is a professional and you can see it in her work. She’s incredible at not only finding errors in grammar and punctuation but her ability to find holes in the plot, character development, and the overall flow of a fictional work (all while maintaining the voice of the author) is where she really shines.
She is a find a problem – provide a solution type of person that makes the editing process painless and stress-free.
With Katie to pick up where I fall short, I can fully focus on what I do best: writing.

Working with Katie was a totally positive experience. She met all deadlines and was readily available anytime I had a question. Her editing helped polish my writing, making passages more clear and concise when necessary. Most importantly, her editing helped make my book flow more consistently and be more fun to read. I definitely recommend Beacon Point! E. Oetinger author of Signs of Hope—Recognizing Messages From the Afterlife

Katie did an amazing job editing my book! Her communication was great and she worked with me throughout the whole process. This was my first time writing a book. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor to work with during the process. She is really good! Don’t wait to reach out to her.

I was very nervous about sharing my first attempt at professional writing with anyone, let alone an editor. Like most authors, I had self-edited and utilized an editing-application to help minimize errors. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Katie, but I envisioned shamefully receiving my edited draft back from her, covered with red-pen “corrections,” just like in middle school. When my first edited draft was returned, however, I was amazed. Katie caught errors that the editing application hadn’t, offered suggestions for re-wording sentences (I tend to write in the passive voice) to enhance the clarity of the message, and suggested moving chapters, and relocating paragraphs, (or to delete them entirely because of redundancy.) She took what I wrote and simply made it better, without detracting from my personal voice or writing style.
We had a slight misunderstanding in the beginning, regarding the number of rounds of edits. Once it was discovered we laughed it off, and got on a solid track, communicating easily and frequently.
I found her directness to be refreshing. She doesn’t waste time coddling your ego or telling you what you’d like to hear. She tells it “like it is,” yet she does this in a respectful, affirming, and kind manner. Katie understands that writing a book is hard work. She meets the writer right where they are, then gently challenges them while concurrently strengthening their writing skills. I highly recommend Katie Chambers.

Katie was excellent to work with in quality, speed and “personal touch”. Great experience and she brought my book up several notches in quality and organization.

Beacon Point’s editing service is amazing!!! Our workbook went from good to great after being in the hands of Katie. We contracted Beacon Point for their combine editing package: substantive and copyediting. Not only are they quick to respond to your inquiries, they are also quick with completing their contracted work and doing it all with a level of excellence that is unmatched. We are totally impressed and well pleased with the services we received on our book Embracing Genesis: A Guide to Move You from Vision to Reality. We highly recommend you utilize them for your editing needs!
Davina Coleman & Koren Pope Self-help book
Katie is great! The fact that this is my first book and I am doing all of this for the first time ever, Katie really helped make the process feel easy and smooth. She was thorough, offered wonderful insights, and gave kind affirmations along the way. Writing a book is not easy, and we all know that our first few drafts are not the most enjoyable thing to read through. She could see through any messy section and pull the heart of the message out. This is absolute talent.

Katie helped me with a rhetorical analysis and eventual argumentative essay for college level English 102. I was having a lot of trouble with it and she was able to teach it to me in a way that I could get a handle on what I needed to do. She was very insightful and had tons of ideas for me. She had even put some time in on her own doing some research on my topic to help guide me with my outline.

Katie Chambers is an excellent editor! She did such a though job and made great suggestions to me to make my manuscript flow. I highly recommend her for any of your editing needs!
Carla McGowan Self-help book
I appreciated how Katie provided very thorough and detailed information every step of the way. I cannot commend enough how comforting it was to always have prompt communication and replies to my questions. The edits themselves were very insightful. They helped me better organize, transition, and articulate my thoughts and improved my writing skills for the future.
The only thing I could say (and this is really not a negative critique because I had full power to make the final decision) is some of the edits did not feel like a fit to my voice.
Stephanie Hodges Religious Book
I was so fortunate to have Katie Chambers edit my memoir. She helped polish my story from editing the conventions of writing to addressing the content, style, and structure. I was impressed by how Katie gave brilliant suggested options to improve and strengthen the manuscript. She is very professional and gets the job done. As an editor, Katie is a true gatekeeper between the author and the reader.

I was very nervous about handing over my personal story to an editor, but very soon in the editing process, Katie surprised me with her first message to me. It was respectful, kind, generous, and I felt confident my book was in the right hands. I have nothing to compare her skillset to as I’m a first-time author. Expectations weren’t really clear and the timeline was not as expected, but I learned to let the process happen the way it needed to and forego expectations/irritations. I could have become angry with the delays, but what good would that do? In the end, I love my book and am honored to have worked with Katie to produce it.
Kellee Pope Memoir
I am very satisfied with Katie’s work editing my book. She was very helpful with rewording sentence structure, grammar, and typos. She offered suggestions in moving paragraphs around so the reader would have a clearer time with the book. By the end of working with her I felt I had a friend that was really for me and my endeavors than just someone I hired to edit my book. I would certainly use her again for my next book.
Katherine Self-help book
Katie brings vision to your writing, and that’s the difference between an order taker and a professional of her caliber. She is by far the best editor I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She is blunt, yet caring, and fully transparent. Furthermore, she is also master of keeping things simple but impactful for your audience. If you want someone who will bring about clarity to your writing, talk to Katie today.

Katie helped me in a very crucial moment of my book production. I was in the middle of editing with another editor when they stated book was ready. I felt it needed more. When I first communicated how I felt with Katie she was very understanding. She patiently explained her process and asked questions that I was not asked before. Being a first time author there are lots of things one can miss. I felt that she picked up the pieces of where I was at and she patiently helped in molding my manuscript. Also I was at times stuck in knowing what I wanted to say but having a hard time using the right words. She also patiently helped me overcome these obstacles without taking away my voice but rather helping me clarify. I am so happy with her service on so many levels! Highly, highly recommend her.
