I was a joy to work with Katie on my first full book experience. I feel she really cared and connected with the goal of making my story cohesive and compelling as well as grammatically correct. Her suggestions were good and needed edits. She had a natural ability to create better flow over the whole book in the spots where I had mixed up ideas or gotten out of order. I highly recommend her for substantive and copy editing. She met every deadline and turnaround on my project of 50K words was quick. Communication via email was quick and painless. I would use her services again.
Beacon Point Services created our book description after editing our book. We were given three lengths for our book description to use as necessary which was extremely beneficial to us. The cost was reasonable and the turn around time to receive our book description was exceptional. Beacon Point Services definitely comes highly recommended by us!
I highly recommend Katie Chambers with her editing skills. I sent my book off to Katie and she returned it using my words in a improved way. I will continue to use Katie because she is thorough, and to the point. She worked on my manuscript in a very timely manner and our communication with each other was answered promptly.
Katie Chambers is a delight to work with. She is prompt, efficient, incredibly knowledgeable and very good at what she does, editing. She has edited my three children’s picture books and lifted them each to a higher level of writing. One of the picture books is a rhyming poem that was actually quite difficult to punctuate and phrase. Katie made sense of it all so I am now confident the poem reads as it was intended to read, and correctly relays when the narrator is thinking or speaking out loud.
A real plus about my experience working with Katie, is that she gives corrections and feedback professionally and matter of factly. I never once felt judged or diminished in the slightest way. She continually made me feel we were a team and from this positive experience, I have had every opportunity to grow as a writer.
Another real plus about working with Katie, is the confidence and peace of mind I now have about my books when they publish. I know I have a quality product that is professionally edited that will stand the test of time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katie as a professional editor to anyone. I will always send my work to her for her critical expertise. My book venture absolutely depends on it. Thanks Katie!
Working with Katie was definitely worth it. She helped me clean up my manuscript and gave great tips to improve the content, which resulted in a book I feel way more confident about. She was also very understanding of my author newbie position and respected my emotions. Thank you for everything.
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 Chambers has been amazing as an editor! This is my first book and I really appreciated her patience with all of my questions and just helping me through the process. She was very proficient in her skills, very organized and followed up with me when I needed, which I appreciated. She clearly knows her job and is really good at it. If I ever decide to write another book, Katie will be my go to editing and advice. I highly recommend her!!
I think this course has a lot of great content.
Katie’s help was a huge blessing. She took her time and made sure to retain my voice with every suggestion and idea! I’ll be back for help in the future!
Very good course. The material is covered well with clear explanations. Lecturer is very helpful and checks on how you are going, which is a great bonus. I highly recommend this course.
So professional and FAST! I appreciate timeliness and she is SO responsive. She had helpful suggestions and was very thorough. Highly recommend!
Katie was great to work with. I learned a lot thought this process and she was very helpful as I was unfamiliar with this industry. Edits were extremely helpful in getting my thoughts out on the page in a concise manner.
I was excited about the critiques. Katie made insightful recommendations/clarifications. I hope she is available for editing in the future. The deadlines were all met.
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 captured and communicated a summary of our book with its description that I couldn’t find words for. She brought everything together! Highly recommend working with her.
Great course for an old-schooler like me. It’s been awhile since I had to put a resume together, but she broke it down into easy-to-understand lessons that gave me the confidence to make real changes. She’s a very talented young lady.
Katie is very good at keeping in touch about the assignment regarding questions she has, and she also gets the work done ahead of time.
I appreciate that she broke it down to three sections: newly in the job market, professional, and changing to a new industry.
My experience with Katie – from start to finish – was awesome. She answered all my questions, promptly addressed my concerns and met agreed upon deadlines. Without a doubt, my manuscript is better because of her expertise as an editor. I highly recommend Katie and if I could give her ten stars, I would!
Katie just finished helping me put together my resume and cover letter and I must say I’m impressed! After just a brief conversation about my skills and examples of me using them, she was able to orchestrate a very impressive sounding profile! I mean after reading it, I wanted to hire myself just because of how awesome I sounded! She did a great job at highlighting my abilities and helped me to see strengths that I was simply taking for granted. Great experience and great results! Would highly recommend 🙂
Katie is a genius. She brought my book to life. She was wonderful about helping keep my thoughts organized and improved the flow of the content. Her comments were both thoughtful and insightful. She had an amazing sense of what I wanted my message in the book to be and helped me bring it to life. I couldn’t recommend her more highly. She was a pleasure to work with and always followed through on schedule.
Very informative and thorough. I gained alot of knowledge through this course.
Extremely quick turnaround, great communication, and a solid job proofreading my resume!
It was an honor and a pleasure to work with Katie. She was highly professional, straightforward, and prompt. I will be working with her on future projects for sure. Thanks Katie for a job well done!
Katie’s editing skills were top-notch! I am grateful she made my book much easier to read through.
She has options for quick turnaround times or more in depth editing and substantive editing.
I was happy I chose her 🙂
Great contents, Katie has explained resume “Tips” with great examples. Also you have all the required resources for download. I landed to this course to check if I can start working as a professional resume writer and this course helped me a lot. She has also keen to answer the questions I had. Thanks Katie.
Katie wrote a great Author bio for me, which concisely conveyed the highlights of my career. I love how she boiled them down to the best parts.
She also wrote an amazing book description for my first book. After I read it, I had two thoughts. First, I was dying to read the book. She brought out the best ideas in the book and organized them into a nice flow for the reader. She made the book sound like a masterpiece. My second thought was, that I couldn’t believe that I had written it. I am so proud of the quality of the book that Katie helped me to craft with her incredible editing skills.
Thank you. I am sincerely grateful.
Katie was so easy to work with! She completed the work exactly as she described and made some excellent suggestions and observations. I would highly recommend her.
I had the pleasure of working with Katie during the editing process for my new book, “Surviving Creative Evolution: Future-Proof Your Creative Career, Overcome Automation Anxiety, and Thrive in the Era of Artificial Intelligence.” I cannot recommend her skills highly enough to other authors looking for an exceptional editor for your nonfiction manuscript.
Katie has a remarkable ability to instantly grasp the essence of what I aimed to communicate in my writing. She provided thoughtful feedback and guidance that enabled me to organize and refine my manuscript tremendously. I was blown away by the depth of her insights on strengthening the narrative flow while organizing and highlighting my key themes.
On top of her editorial prowess, she was an absolute joy to collaborate with. Katie responded to all my questions promptly and worked diligently to meet every deadline for publication. She made the editing experience smooth and relatively painless!
I cannot recommend Katie highly enough for any author seeking to take their manuscript to the next level before publishing. Her skill, dedication, and responsive communication will help your book realize its maximum potential. I am so grateful for[her efforts and give her my highest endorsement.
A great book is two hands clapping. One is the writer; the other the editor. I have worked with a lot of top editors over the years and while they all have talent, the majority live in a world of their own timing – they are not reliable. So while there may well be two hands clapping they don’t clap at the same time which leads the writer into realms of frustration. Waiting, wondering and worrying.
Not so with Katie Chambers. She is an excellent substantive editor and is prompt and reliable. A pleasure and a relief to work with.
That being said the bottom line with any review is would you work with this person again? And the answer is a definite yes. And I will recommend her to my fellow authors and speakers. Thanks Katie.
I previously purchased another Udemy resume writing course a couple of years ago, but Katie’s course is so much better. It’s like night and day. Katie is VERY thorough, by explaining her topics, then showing examples of exactly what she means. She also shows several before and after examples, which I loved. It’s nice to have an instructor that knows how to teach a subject in detail. In addition, she actually answers your questions on the Q and A board. Thank you Katie, great course.
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.
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.
Katie was amazing to work with from that start. She was communicative, encouraging and professional when working with her. Her edits on my book made it amazing and I am so excited to see it in printed! I highly recommend anyone writing a book to work with Katie. You will not be disappointed!
Katie did an excellent job with my book. Several times I was in a rush to accomplish a task and was having difficulty with an aspect of my book and Katie graciously walked me through it. Overall, she was a pleasure to interact with and I’m very satisfied with my results and my decision to go with her services.
Katie is amazing. She wrote my long book description and summarized the purpose of my book perfectly.
From the very beginning, Katie provided clear and concise guidance on the editing process, which made it easy for me to understand what was expected of me as a first-time author. Her defined procedures were instrumental in helping me stay organized and on track, and I appreciated the structure that she brought to the project.
Katie’s communication skills are excellent. She was always available to answer my questions and she respected the deadlines established at the beginning of the process. Her responsiveness was timely, and it made the entire editing process smooth and less stressful than expected.
Thanks to Katie’s editing expertise, I was able to move from a state of uncertainty about my manuscript to feeling confident that I had written a book that was worthy of publishing. Her keen eye for detail and her ability to see the big picture were invaluable, and I cannot thank her enough for her hard work and dedication.
In summary, Katie has it all together as an editor, and she is generous in sharing her talents with others. She is a consummate professional who handles her work with grace and skill. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a knowledgeable and supportive editor for their next project.
Katie’s review of my manuscript was prompt and she significantly improved the quality and readability of my story for which I am sincerely appreciative. She made many insightful suggestions along with wonderful edits. I highly recommend her editing services.
Katie is so professional and has impeccable attention to detail. Working with her has really taught me a lot, had it not be for her my book would be just average, she really elevated my work. Thank you Katie!
Katie is amazing. I’ve worked with other editors, and she is the clear front runner! Her timeliness in communication responses as well as her intuition made the process easier for me as a first time author. Katie is very talented at organizing your thoughts into your first masterpiece!
Engaging instructor and valuable content, thanks!! There was a lesson or two where sound was a bit wonky, just FYI.
I must admit that English is not my first language, I am a bad writer, and I want a dream career. I appreciate the effort of what Chambers did for this course. She shared several helpful instructions from the websites, pdf files, and power points. She is very detailed and demonstrated us on how to type better sentences (which consists of powerful keywords, strong action verbs, characteristics of personality, a good result or achievements.) Please check the video if you are a typewriter or a person who most likely to say on the resumes, “I am a good person or I am a hard worker”. Believe me, nobody would take you seriously without giving good evidence. I also recommend people who want to pursue programming related jobs such as software engineers or data scientist. Especially good for people who struggled in writing. —I have a feeling that she used to be a programmer and knows the techy jargons. After finishing watching the courses and took little note…. How do I feel now? I feel little confident and I cannot wait to experiment or apply what learned from her. I have blue print in my head and I cannot wait to type my resumes.
I was struggling with writing a bio and book description. Beacon Point stepped in to save the day. After a brief Q & A and 2 drafts, I had 3 final versions of each (short, medium and long). Beacon Point was skilled, efficient and professional. I know I can count on them to deliver an outstanding product.
Working with Katie was a fantastic experience for me, as I was writing my first book and had a non-literary background. Katie really improved my writing where it was a bit wordy and gave several useful suggestions of placement of material. Furthermore, her questions about the text brought up places where it could be improved. This made her a really great content and copy editor. On deadlines and communication, I felt all of it was smooth and reliable. I recommend Katie very highly and would not hesitate to use her services again!
Katie was a professional. It was an honor to work with Katie. We work hand in hand and she offer great advice and suggestions without taking away from my style and or vision. She was on point and true to her delivery time. I definitely recommend Katie’s services.
I was extremely impressed with Beacon’s work on my manuscript. I thought I was pretty good with grammar, but they really cleaned things up. Aside from that, it was clear they took the time to familiarize themselves with the flow and content of my work. This was evidenced in their comments and suggestions regarding said content. I would confidently consider them for any future projects.
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 is organized, reliable, efficient, straight forward, and great at what she does. I highly recommend her! I truly enjoyed working with her and would happily work with her again. Thanks Katie! You are a gift to many who are getting their stories out to the world!
Katie greatly exceeded my expectations as an editor. Her sharp eye for small errors and her ability to give the book a 10,000-foot view with regard to the general organization of the material were critical for me in putting out the best book possible on my topic. I always felt like she was in my corner and was invested in our ability together to produce a quality book. I’ll certainly be reaching out to her again.
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.
I am very happy with Katie Chambers’ editing services for several reasons. 1) I learned during the progress from her clear notes, 2) she was timely, 3) and professional. I am already referring her to other authors.
Katie was straightforward to work with. She did everything she said she would within the timeframe defined and at an excellent level of quality. She raised my writing to the next level and taught me new storytelling tips through her comments and suggestions. I am very satisfied with her skills and services, and I will definitely use Beacon Point for future editing projects. I highly recommend her.
Katie was awesome to work with. She is a highly skilled and talented editor. She helped me know how I could change and reorganize my manuscript to improve it greatly. I know I had a lot of repetition and possible inconsistencies after going through so many drafts. I feel confident now that it’s been through editing with Katie. I would recommend getting both a developmental edit and copy edit from her. She is also very professional and communicative before, after, and throughout the editing process.
This course was very informative & detailed. She provided outstanding examples of every lesson she taught. I’ve learned so much valuable information. Amazing instructor!
Katie is a highly organized professional who provided insight and suggestions to improve my writing. She guided me through the editing process and thoughtfully considered not only grammar and organization but also the flow and intent of the book itself. She took my project as seriously as I did and paid attention to every detail. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and won’t hesitate to recommend her.
Katie was amazing to work with. She did an excellent job with my non-fiction book on sales, providing copyediting as well as some developmental editing. The recommendations she made (such as moving certain paragraphs, or adding a few points, or adding sub-sections to chapters) were all spot-on and helped to improve my book tremendously. Her suggestions also showed me that she was truly “getting” my book and paying close attention to the message and how to best deliver it. As a first-time author, it meant so much to me to have her careful attention and expertise. I highly recommend her services, and can’t wait to recommend her to the next person I know who is looking for an editor.
Best tutor at great price
Katie worked with me for a while, and I always enjoyed her visits. She had a fun style and was a good conversationalist. But more importantly, she really knew how to teach writing well. She was the best at that as she really broke it down and challenged me, and my mom thought she was worth more than she charged.
Katie is top-notch! She has an eye for detail, but also has the ability to zoom out and see edits on a big picture / content level. Efficient, professional, and full of insight! I’ll definitely be collaborating with Katie in the future.
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.
It is really interested to work with Katie, she is qualified , takes care of her work, does an effort more than the expected. That is why we paid an additional 50% of our agreed amount as bonus
Amazing! We get so lost in our projects, sometimes its hard to see where inconsistencies exist. Katie took my book and suggested changes where things needed to be moved, expanded on, or eliminated. She took my project and could see my vision – truly amazing outcome of my book in her hands!
Katie Chambers did an excellent job editing my book, the Parris Island Planner.I would recommend her to anyone who wants a polished book ready for publication. She quoted a price with delivery date and stuck to our schedule. My book is so much better because of her talents.
Thank you for helping Tyler. He really did improve with your help. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication.
Katie did a brilliant job of taking a rookie writer through the editing process. I’ll be collaborating with her on any books, etc that I write. She is a valuable partner in the process.
An editor from my previous book recommended Katie due to my change in the genre of this project to a children’s book series. I was very impressed with the initial sample I sent her, but it did prepare me for the end product. Katie is AMAZING! She is professional, punctual, and very skilled at her profession. She gave me so many writing pointers and changed the entire structure at times and it made my book so much better. This is my first fiction book and she has helped me to grow and become a better author through this process. I cannot thank her enough for sharing her skills. She is also super affordable and approachable. I just can say enough about her.
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.
Katie was amazing and very professional. She exceeded my expectations and made me feel very comfortable throughout the process especially with this being my first project. I will definitely be using her services again!
This course was extremely helpful. Resumes are tough and trying to stand out on paper seemed almost impossible before this course. This course is loaded with great tips and step by step instructions on how to get the best out of your resume.
Katie was easy to work with and made excellent recommendations for improving my manuscript. She clearly explained any changes she made and responded to my questions promptly.
I was referred to Katie Chambers by a trusted mentor and was thrilled when she agreed to edit my children’s book manuscript. I thought it was pretty good when I submitted it, but it was so much better when she returned it. I am thrilled with her work. She set forth clear parameters, worked quickly, and gave me excellent return for my money. I would encourage any author to work with Katie to greatly improve any manuscript.
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! 🙂
Katie Chambers is the type of editor I have been looking for. Instead of writing a report or summary response in an email – Katie provided a line by line edit of my work. She asked me questions and when I gave her a bit more detail on the scope and background of my book – she gave alternate advice and suggestions. Katie was super helpful in a supportive way. I am so appreciative of her time and talent. Thank you Katie. I plan to use Katie for future projects.
Nice eye openener for when you want to improve your resume. Very well laid out, she is funny, but gets to the point. She helps you adjust your resume while you watch the videos. Super helpful, so that by the end of the course you have a super improved resume that will be noticed! Katie hits the spot. Thank you!
Katie was great to work with! She was fast, efficient and easy to communicate with. Her editing was very professional and her comments were very specific so that I never had to wonder why she made a change or what she felt was missing. I would definitely recommend her editing and will be contacting her for editing again with any and all editing work I need done in the future.
I think it was an excellent idea to take this course because now I am in the process of redoing all of my resumes so that they reflect what I did instead of telling what I did. This course has already saved me hundreds of dollars. Worth Every Penny!
Though Katie has been a bit busy while also working on my novel, she communicated all delays clearly. Since I was not on a deadline, it was not problem for me. As a copy editor, she is very good. Grammatically, things are in their place, and she explains with plenty of useful comments in the side, allowing for difference of writing style. If you are seeking a thorough copy editor, you’ll find one here.
I could not be happier with the ease, professionalism, communication, and quality of feedback. We will without a doubt reach out to Katie again for future projects!
great class… excellent instructor!
Launching my first book was so nerve racking! Katie had helpful advice and was very encouraging; this made me feel I was on the right path. She was very patient and helpful with me, even through the multiple edits, which is part of her process anyways. She was a pleasure to work with!
I love working with Katie. She is a great editor and critic. She took the time to really improve my book and make it the best it could be. Will definitely use Katie on my future projects!!!
Katie has been a remarkable resource during my initial foray into writing. She has been patient, insightful, and skilled at developing the correct words and messages for my book chapters. She has always been responsive, and she provided me with a deep appreciation for the editing process. She has inspired me to continue writing, and I will not hesitate to engage her in my future editing needs. I can recommend her highly and without reservation.
I decided to self-publish a book after co-authoring two editions of a popular medical textbook through a large publishing company. I was looking for an editor and heard about Katie through a fellow author. I interviewed several but Katie stood out with her professionalism, responsiveness, and clear communication. I made the leap and hired her for substantive editing and copyediting. I’m a perfectionist and who went through several rounds of my manuscript before sending it off to Katie. You know you have a fantastic editor when they can take your best work and make it exponentially better. That’s exactly what Katie did as she sculpted my manuscript and refined it into a masterpiece.
Of course, I might be biased, so here’s a message from my proofreader shortly after getting started on the manuscript:
“Just wanted to let you know that I’ve started proofreading your manuscript, and I think it will be a fairly quick project for me. It’s very well-written, and I’m finding hardly any errors, so that makes my job a lot easier.”
I highly recommend Katie and I’ll be asking her to be my editor for my next book.
Katie is an excellent editor. She did a fantastic job with my first ever Picture Book. She was thorough and walked me through the process. She listens to what the writer has to say and uses that input as well as her own interpretation. I recommend her for whatever style book you write. You will not be disappointed.
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.
Katie Chambers has a wealth of knowledge and experience in editing. She took my rough labor of love and pulled apart all the plot holes, missing content, data dumps, and confusing dialog. She took the time to learn about the characters, and her understanding of each and the feedback she provided helped me improve my overall character development. She also pointed out areas of the story that were lacking, allowing me to bring more action and better flow to the overall story. Her efforts assisted me in polishing, re-write, expanding, and clarifying all elements of the book. The Traveler, Viator Awakens is my first novel, and having an editor who could take the story from big picture concepts, dive into the fine details, then step back to make sure the big picture concepts still work was essential. She gave tons of feedback and explanations as to why something needed more detail or how the data dump slowed the story. She edited in a way that offered me, a first-time author, an opportunity to learn and become a better writer. Working with Katie has been a pleasure, and I look forward to our next project together.
This was our first time writing a book and we really had no idea what to expect. Katie was very patient helping us through this process. She has great skill, objective edits, and we highly recommend her. Our book is infinitely better after retaining her services and we will definitely be in touch for any future projects.
Thank you for everything Katie.
Job well done. Not as good with seo keyword integration but good writing ability.
This was my first book project and I really had no idea what to expect as far as the editing process. Beacon Point was extremely professional and clearly communicated the process and expectations. Everything went exactly how it was described to me. I really appreciate the responsiveness to my questions and expert guidance. Not only do I highly recommend Beacon Point to others, I intend to continue to use them for my future projects.
Outstanding work, high quality very professional.
I enjoyed my experience working with Katie. As a first time author, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the editing process. I heard horror stories about editors completely changing your words, and writers losing confidence and giving up. I never experienced any of these working with Katie. In reality, she motivated me to think deeper and create a product that my readers will find valuable. I’m passionate about helping social service professionals and the notes Katie provided pushed me to create a product that will make a difference. If you’re looking for an editor that will challenge you to become a better writer while giving your manuscript the transformation it needs, I HIGHLY recommend you work with Katie.
Katie worked with me to write my bio and book description. I especially wanted her help since this was my first book. It was super simple working with Katie — she asked a lot of questions about me (she was familiar with the book since she had edited it), and then we iterated a few times on the wording. The end result is wonderful! I’m very glad to have more text to use when describing my book on Amazon, the website, etc… Katie has my highest recommendation and I would definitely work with her again!
The course is awesome,, but could have provided more details about the summary and objective session. By explaining how to write a summary from scratch since for me the main selling point of the resume is the summary. Thanks for Updating the course. What an awesome teacher!!!!!!!!!
(Changed 4 star rating to 5 after teacher added a lecture based on my feedback)
Katie easily absorbed My book’s main ides and then added ideas that I didn’t think about. That says a lot about how she works.
She didn’t just give me grammar and spelling advice. She did much more by suggesting paragraph movements and sentence structure as well as suggesting erudite ideas to enhance and add clarity to the book.
This was more of a consulting relationship than pure editing.
I will use her again!
Ms. Chambers did an amazing job helping with my manuscript. Her feedback enabled me to make important changes I never would have noticed on my own. I feel now that my characters are more relatable and my plot hole has been filled in. I would use her services again and recommend them to anyone.
I was so impressed with Katie’s edits! She did a great job maintaining my stylistic preferences while thoroughly catching grammatical and flow errors. She offered well-thought-out and meaningful stylistic line edits, and worked with me on revisions until I was satisfied with the end product. I would definitely use her again and would highly recommend her!
Katie services are comprehensive and thorough. She helped me navigate through my first project and adhered to the proposed timeline. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Katie was easy to work with. She honored our agreed upon deadlines and made adjustments as needed. Her comments and edits helped me clarify the content of the manuscript and ultimately made it a better book. Katie revised my biographical information and provided three different versions of various lengths. She wrote the book description which went through several review cycles before providing three different version of various lengths. l’ll gladly work with her again and am happy to recommend her services to others.
Katie edited my first YA novel and my end product is much better than what I first sent her. She not only edited my work, but also sent me resources and examples to better my writing. I felt she was fully invested in my work and showed a genuine interest. I will be using her for the sequel of my book!
This is the second time I have used Katie for my editing work. Just like with my first novel, she provided the best possible work I could get. She was thorough and it was obvious she truly cared about my book. I look forward to using her again on future projects.
I like the energy and the delivery.
Katie Chambers is a delight to work with. She is prompt, efficient, incredibly knowledgeable and very good at what she does, editing. She has edited my three children’s chapter books and lifted them each to a higher level of writing. Even though she was contracted to specifically deal with grammar, and punctuation, and stylistic word choice and flow, she also gave insights into potential plot problems or suggestions for better character development. She took an interest in my work. I had written these books as a series with the first book initially quite a bit shorter than the other two. Katie helped me realize that as a children’s series, the books needed to be near the same word count to meet the requirements suitable for the intended audience. Thus, she has helped me in all aspects of children’s book writing, handing me a golden opportunity to have these stories reach their highest potential: as a series and a stand alone. The best part about about my experience with Katie is that she gives corrections and feedback professionally and matter of factly. I never once felt judged or diminished in the slightest way. She continually made me feel we were a team and from this positive experience, I have had every opportunity to grow as a writer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katie as a professional editor to anyone. I will always send my work to her for her critical expertise. My book venture absolutely depends on it. Thanks Katie!
Katie is an AMAZING editor and creator! She did outstanding work on handouts for my book, author bio, and book description. Katie gave my work life and she did so with true professionalism and incredible speed. Someone I would hire again and again!
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.
I was impressed with her appearance, energetic enthusiasm, and passion for the topic. She came across as ready to help me in any way she could.
It’s been a great pleasure to work with Katie. She is very professional, knowledgeable, confident, straightforward, and reliable. I would work with her again next time.
I took lots of resume and cover letter classes on Udemy. This is by far the best of the bests. Nearly every other courses parrot the same cliché advices over and over again, not this one.
I greatly enjoyed working with Katie. Not only did she make the necessary technical editing, but she did a fantastic job of rearranging blocks where needed and providing feedback from the reader’s perspective.
Katie is organized, reliable, straight forward, and great at what she does. She removed so much of the stress that can be associated with the editing process. I highly recommend her! I truly enjoyed working with her and would happily work with her again. Thanks Katie! You brought my book to life! You are a gift to many who are getting their stories out to the world!
Katie is awesome! She helped me re-write my resume and cover letter. She talked me through it the entire time. I can see how this new resume and cover letter will get me noticed with potential employers.
Katie worked with both my kids and really helped improve their writing skills.
The Secrets of Stonecavern is my first novel written for children ages 10 – 13. As an editor, Katie, helped me tremendously. Her insight, ingenuity, and communication through the editing process took my book to a level that exceeded my expectations. She was there every step of the way and her encouragement helped me finish on time and confident others will enjoy reading my story. I was extremely pleased with her detailed recommendations on how to make the story stronger, and I highly recommend Katie to any writer, seasoned or novice, as a editor. I will definitely hire Katie for Book 2.
Katie, there is nothing I could tell you to improve on. You were SO easy to work with I can’t imagine working with anyone else on my future projects. Your comments and editing were absolutely on point. You were even able add content when needed with my style of writing. All in all, 5 stars!
My mom and I worked together to write her Amish memoir and we really needed an editor who would both have cultural sensitivity and help us provide clarity for the reader. Katie excelled, helping us tie up loose ends and providing suggestions that made this book so much better. Thank God for Katie! We’re so grateful that we chose to work with her.
I was unsure how to write me book description (I mean, how does one describe thousands of words into two paragraphs? I was seriously stuck). But Katie, who also edited my book, knew exactly how to write the perfect description to summarise my book and also capture the reader from the moment they look at the cover. She really is brilliant at what she does!
Katie also helped make adjustments to my author bio. I definitely recommend her to anyone who’s stuck, just like I was
Katie was great to work with for this project. She is knowledgeable and gave great feedback. We communicated clearly and easily with one another. I would definitely work with Katie again.
My book category is more of a Chronicle of Show Business stories, but fit best in the “Memoir” category. Katie was very efficient and made many very good suggestions throughout the editing process. She was far more prepared than was I. I took most of her suggestions as they helped the flow of the book. I appreciate her insight and her efficient work very much and highly recommend her.
Katie did fantastic editorial work on my post-apocalyptic fiction novel The Last Hacker. She delivered on-time and communicated frequently. Not only did I hire her for copy editing, but also for developmental and story editing. With her help I was able to fix plot-holes as well as mistakes made with story narrative. If you want professional editing, this is the place to get it. It truly is the best of the best in terms of quality. You can trust that your work can stand against top titles published in book stores if you work with Katie.
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.
When I was referred to Katie I was confident that she would do a great job, simply because of the person who referred me. What I didn’t realize is how helpful, professional and knowledgeable she would be. She ensured that my book would leave my readers feeling confident by having me elaborate on important points. She also provided me with helpful resources that went past the scope of her job. I also appreciated how she helped me stay true to myself while remaining entertaining, honest and professional. I sometimes jump from one point to another but she made sure things aligned.I could go on and on about Katie but you really need to just check her out for yourself!
If you’re a new or aspiring editor and don’t know how to start getting your administrative ducks in a row, this is exactly the overview you need. This course touches on everything you didn’t know you needed to know to run your editorial business in an efficient and professional way.
Katie managed to complete her job way before the deadline. She’s a very talented writer. I will definitely hire her again!
Katie created a user-friendly web-site by organizing my current content and writing a good bit of additional content. She clarified my brand message and added the touch of professionalism it needed. I appreciate her handiwork and continual communication through the process. She was quick and efficient, yet thorough and effective.
I was struggling writing a bio for my website. Katie was able to capture my thoughts and did an amazing job writing a bio that highlighted my personalty and strengths.
I have worked in newspapers and as a writer in various capacities, I can say Katie is exceptional on every level. Easily a 5 in every category. I look forward to working with Katie again with my solo spiritual devotional books. She made the process less intimidating and put my mind at ease with her punctuality, professionalism, positive demeanor and poise.
I pulled Katie in for a job that was more tedious than expected, but she was very receptive to everything she needed! You can depend on her for sure!
My experience was amazing although it was my first experience with my first book editing and with my busy schedule. But Katie did an amazing work. Headache free, smooth collaboration and meeting the deadline with exceptional quality.
– Great course. Highly Recommended. – Katie Chamber is the best instructor that I have had on Udemy; and I have experienced some good ones. – Mrs. Chambers instructions are clear and detailed. – Love the structure of this course. I watched the course two
I was originally referred to Katie by my SPS personal coach. and could not have been happier with the decision to go with her. She is very affordable, professional, and qualified. Some of her changes were beyond my expectations and improved the overall quality of my manuscript without compromising its integrity. I highly recommend her!
Katie helped me edit articles on my online portfolio. Her work added strength and clarity to my content and message. Putting together a compelling website is a lot of work; I am really glad for her expertise, which freed up my mind to focus on the visuals, layout, programming, and other things. It was greatly appreciated, and I would definitely work with her again.
This was a thorough lecture. The information on “showing versus telling” was especially helpful. With Katie’s tips, examples and instructions, I was able to revise my resume and give it new life!
It was a pleasure to work with Katie – she is detailed, efficient and professional. I liked her so much that I hired her to do additional work for me, I highly recommend her.
I really enjoyed working with Katie. She understood what I was trying to accomplish and provided the guidance I needed. If I have another book in me, maybe, someday, I hope to work with Katie again. Katie – Thank you for your support, advice, and feedback to make me look like a rockstar.
Katie did a great job helping me turn my fiction dystopian novel from a rough draft into a compelling read. Not only did she point out where the manuscript could be improved, she provided me with invaluable resources that helped improve my skills. With her help, I made great strides in showing rather than telling, building tension, avoiding head-hoping, improving dialogue and internal thoughts, and removing all of the plot holes and inconsistencies. Her approach is thorough. The manuscript was throughly reviewed and edited and she also provided a lengthly editorial letter describing some of the big-picture items I needed to consider and change. Ultimately, I accepted all of her suggestions.
I can’t believe how much better my manuscript is after working with Katie. She is a great asset and worth every penny. I highly recommend her services.
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!
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.
She worked with my son and he got a higher score on the AP exam with her help. He also improved his grades that first year Katie worked with him. The second year she worked with him he still struggled with his reading comprehension and writing and his grades did not improve the second year.
Katie was a thorough and EASY editor to work with! Her edits made a huge difference for my book (which is now ranking #1 in Modern Philosophy and College Student Life!) and she was able to work under my tight deadline. I especially love her method of editing where she sends the book in chunks. It’s EXTREMELY effective and really speeds up the process and makes it feel more collaborative. Thanks, Katie!
I enjoyed Katie’s resume writing class very much. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that I only needed to change a few minor things on my personal resume. I thought the course was very thorough as Katie not only covered the best ways in which to highlight skills, work experience, etc., but she also covered graphics and layout. She covered everything! I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it to others. As a person who is trying to get into writing for the Internet, I think I can add resume writing to my skill list after taking the course. Thanks, Katie!
Knowledgeable, Patient, Upbeat…..Perfect
Katie is a very astute English tutor. Due to her knowledge and patience we were able to accomplish all that I had hoped for in a tutoring session. English is not my favorite subject, but Katie’s upbeat personality made it much more palatable.
I received excellent support throughout this editing process. I was very pleased with how professional and precise my book was edited . The communication was great and ensured we were both on the same page from the beginning. Highly recommended!!
Katie was amazing! She thought of everything. Her professionalism, and communication were off the charts. Katie was so patient with me and all of my questions as well. I highly recommend her for your editing, book description and Bio. She made this process smoother for me. I’m looking forward to working with Katie again.
Excellent work. Katie is great giving you options and trying to respect your writing style. Totally recommend Katie for your content writing.
Great content with specific examples on how to write from scratch or revamp a resume. The most difficult part for me was trying to edit and rewrite my resume objectively, without over indulging on job details or listing multiple jobs that have similar qualities. Katie describes how to discern which things should stay and go in the course and also offers an edit review when you are done to help keep you on track and your resume looking tip-top. Katie spoke knowledgably about the subject and clearly has a passion for teaching. Only real critique I have is the recorded volume was a bit low on most of the videos, however there are a few where the volume is normal and much louder than the others. Be aware of that if you are wearing ear buds or trying to work in a quiet place.
Katie did an amazing job of editing my book. It was my first one and she made it feel like a breeze with her helpful tips and the way she carefully went through my manuscript. She put her heart and soul into my book and I highly recommend her if you’re looking for an editor not only with skill but heart!!
I really enjoyed this course. It’s been over 10 years since I needed to update my resume and I needed to start from scratch. Katie’s online course kept me from using the old, stale methodology that I used previously in my resumes and provided plenty of examples. She was very easy to listen to and I enjoyed her natural, casual personality and humor. I recommend this course to anyone who is interested in creating or updating their resume.
Katie is an excellent editor. I was impressed that she took the time to really understand the topic of my book and my targeted audience. Her suggestions were great, and her attention to detail was impressive. I highly recommend her services!
As this was my very first experience as a picture book author and it was also a self publishing project, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I was so nervous about finding the right person to edit my book. Fortunately, I was referred to Katie and she was highly recommended. She did not disappoint! The turn around time exceeded my expectations and she also found a proofreader for me. I would definitely recommend Katie and if I have another idea for a book she will be the editor I will be contacting!
I used Katie for content editing/writing on my upcoming book. This is the first time I’ve used a content editor/writer. I was apprehensive at first, but now I can’t imagine every writing without Katie’s input ever again. Her recommended edits were spot-on, adding to the cohesiveness and strength of my book and pulling me out of the myopic trench that I tend get myself into when I write. Wow! I can’t say enough positive about this experience. I can’t wait to work with her again on my next book. Thanks Katie.
Katie is a fantastic editor! She was easy to communicate with and always met the deadlines set in the contract. As a first time author, I was so nervous to hand my work over for someone else to critique, but Katie was kind in her critiques, but also honest. Her edits definitely unleveled my book and her comments and notes helped me to become a better writer. I highly recommend her and will be using her for my editing needs in the future.
If one could give higher than a 5-star rating, then I would for Katie Chambers. Katie was excellent to work with throughout the entire editing process. All of her edits, revisions, and suggestions made so much sense, especially with me being a first-time writer. She was always timely and delivered well ahead of the deadlines. I would highly recommend her for any editing and writing project.
I really enjoyed working with Katie. This was my second book project and my first time using a professional editing service. Katie is very clear in all of her communications and always meets to agreed deadlines. I accepted almost every change she suggested as she made my writing come across more clearly. What a difference a second set of eyes can make. I strongly recommend Katie Chambers’ professional services. You will not be disappointed.
The instructor does well with this video series. She is concise and to the point. I knew most of the general ideas she talked about–you can find them around–but this helped me get into the small details that could be make-or-break things for my own work (I would list them but there are too many points in the overall series to do that). The only feedback I think I have is that the videos could benefit from a bit more in depth examples for summaries and objectives, ones that could show a bit more variety to encompass more fields of work and personal backgrounds. Other than that, everything was exceptionally good and helpful.
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!
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.
This course is FULL of content. I’d suggest that if you’ve never written a resume then this will take you right to the head of the queue. And if you are experienced this will still give you plenty of tips and guidance to produce something stunning. I run live courses for local people seeking employment, concentrating on the complete process. I will recommend this course to them (especially graduates) because it is so comprehensive in the specific area of writing a resume or, as we say in the UK, a CV. It is very clear from her style that Katie is a good professional teacher so that she puts her points across clearly and with such enthusiasm that she carries you. We’ve all had bad teachers that we want to forget and others that so inspire and motivate us that we remember what they taught us years after. Katie is certainly in the latter group. I would highly recommend this course if you are seeking a job or promotion, or just keeping your resume up to date for future use. It might be one of your best investments.
Katie was super-professional to work with. She established expectations upfront and always met them. This was my first experience in writing a book and I, therefore, learned a lot from her. She is patient but also very disciplined. When we were finished with the editing process I was absolutely tickled it read so well. I kept asking myself if this was really my book?!
It was a wonderful experience working with Katie. She was proficient, professional, punctual, easy to work with, etc… She accompanied her edits with comments when appropriate; she clearly knows what she’s doing and is very good at it. She has my highest recommendation and she’ll be my first choice to edit my next book!
Katie was direct and to the point from the get-go. I wrote a book on meditation and my aim was to keep my content simple and digestible without going into too many esoteric directions, and Katie hit the nail on the head with her suggestions. When I got my first pass back I was amazed at what I saw, my words sounded professional and like a book that I would read. She was also not afraid to offer her insight into the subject which helped me move the reader along, and she did extremely well navigating through my Sanskrit references. She also happily edited in British English which was useful. I would recommend Katie in a heartbeat and look forward to working with her on my next project!
When I first read about Katie, I felt an instant connection with her. Somehow I just knew I was suppose to contact her, and right away she made me to feel important, safe and at peace. (I was very anxious about turning my book/manuscript over to a stranger.) There are no adequate words to express how very pleased I am with what she has done with my revised book. Her organizational skills are phenomenal. She was able to take my very detailed, sometimes confusing personal story, and make it much easier to follow. She encouraged me, embraced my story, and validated me as a writer. Above all she was patient with this 78 year-old-woman who has limited computer skills, which caused me to be overly stressed at times, and is somewhat forgetful. I would highly recommend this kind, thoughtful, talented woman I call My Editor. I thank God continually for putting her in my path. Thank you, Katie; God willing, there will be more books coming your way from me. nk
