Karen Smith, Hen House Publishing, edited and proofed my manuscript of 89,000 words. I was very satisfied with her editing and proofing. She worked quickly and returned the edited and proofed manuscripts in a short time. It is apparent that she has a firm grasp of grammar and punctuation, as well as the elements of fiction such as character development, plot development, and pace, to mention only a few, that assures the client that she will do a professional job. Karen is reliable and very easy to work with. She is a true professional, and in my opinion, she went the extra mile to return to me a manuscript that completely satisfied me and will be readily accepted by agents and publishers as a well-crafted, error-free manuscript. I can without reservation recommend Karen Smith, Hen House Publishing, for your copy editing and proofing.
