Client Reviews

“I was hoping to obtain an excellent editor and got that and so much more with Kris Spisak. Not only was Kris’s meticulous attention to detail exemplary, her insight was invaluable to the overall success of my manuscript. As well as a thorough grammatical review of my work, I received a comprehensive overview that greatly enhanced the structure of my novel. Kris was open and available to me throughout the process, provided well-considered advice, and went above and beyond to ensure all my expectations were met by our prearranged deadline. I cannot recommend Kris’s services more highly, and look forward to working with her again in the future. “

-T. Marie Vandelly, debut psychological thriller author (Theme Music, forthcoming from Penguin-Random House)

“Kris Spisak’s editing far exceeded my expectations. She slew excessive commas, brought order to misplaced modifiers, made straight any flub-ups in POV, and delivered an edit on time and with insightful comments about both story and craft. Highly recommended.”

Julie Valerie, debut women’s fiction author (Holly Banks Full of Angst, forthcoming from Grand Central Publishing)

“[The manuscript copyedit] I got back from Kris was gloriously beyond simple punctuation and grammar remarks. It was nothing short of a mini masters class in creative writing.”

Karen A. Chase, debut historical fiction author (Carrying Independence)

“The detailed critique I received from Kris Spisak was well-written and easy to decipher. She found holes in the story I didn’t realize were there. Her valuable input took the novel from okay to can’t-put-down, and I can’t wait to work with her on the next one!”

Bess George, romantic suspense author (Family Illusions)

“Kris Spisak treated my first novel as though it was her own. Her manuscript critique was thorough and thoughtful. I couldn’t have asked for a better coach. Stonewall Revival is a significantly better, tighter, stronger debut thanks to her guidance. I’ll be seeking her expertise again for my next book.”

-Thomas Michael Garguilo, author of fiction (Stonewall Revival)

“As a new author I had many doubts about getting my first book completed and published. Becoming involved with Kris Spisak was the turning point for me. I was given not only a great editor but a true partner in the writing and rewriting process.”

-Bob Fiacco, nonfiction author (Showing Up To Play)

“Every author needs an editor. Why? Because we writers are so involved in our projects we can’t see the novel for the words. Through the editing process, Kris thoughtfully and thoroughly helped me hone and strengthen my novel.”

-Leila Gaskin, fantasy author (Hot Flashes)

“Kris did a fabulous job editing my book. She hit every weak note and made insightful suggestions. I plan to ask her to edit another.”

George Klein, thriller author
