What people are saying about us
“Working with Katrina was a wonderful experience. She took the time to read my novel and asked me questions to help deepen it. She provided a keen editorial set of eyes. Katrina was able to use the same voice as my characters when she suggested additions and rewrites; I was amazed at her editorial skills. Her suggestions blended seamlessly into my novel. She polished my novel in a way that I didn't think was possible, but still kept the voices and story intact. She also improved the readability and the flow of action just by rearranging sections and rewording clunky parts. I'm grateful for the chance I had to work with her on my novel. I now feel confident that it's the best it can be. Katrina is a gem, and she's the editor you need if you want your novel to sparkle and shine.”
— Rachel Hunsaker, author of Night Bloom
“This being my first manuscript and first time working with an editor, I really didn't know what to expect from the process. Having now been through it I am glad I chose to go with Katrina. From the beginning the process was outlined thoroughly, extra care was given to bettering the manuscript to its best possible form, and Katrina's overall engagement was the story was great. As a first time author especially her guidance was very educational. Highly recommended!”
— N.B. Austin, author of Crimson River
“Katrina Diaz was an invaluable partner when polishing my first manuscript. I wasn't sure what to look for in an editor, and I had a hard time finding the right person to really sink their teeth into my dark fantasy story, but her samples really put me at ease and let me know I was in good hands. When I received her editorial assessment and developmental edits, I knew I'd picked the perfect editor.
She gave me productive criticism and reactions while staying respectful to the prose, and she never compromised my style or flavor with her edits. Most importantly, she pointed out a book-breaking character issue that I never noticed in my own reviews! It's safe to say that Katrina saved my manuscript, and I'm really proud of the state it's in going forward.
Katrina truly goes above and beyond what I would expect from an editor, and I know my work wouldn't be in nearly this good of shape without her insight and expertise.”
— Dave Oliver, author of Ez Ozel: Prologue to Perdition
"I'd heard good things about Katrina's editorial prowess, and the reports were true. We agreed upon a custom editorial assessment for my thriller manuscript, and Katrina provided not just a high-level report—an overview assessing the manuscript's plot clarity, character arcs, pacing, and structure—but also a detailed critique that identified not just shortcomings but opportunities to make it a much stronger work. I would wholeheartedly recommend Katrina for any author, whether you're new at this game or a grizzled veteran looking for smart, knowledgeable input."
—J.D. Lasica, author of Biohack
"I would just like to take a minute and thank my editor, Katrina Diaz, for all the time and attention she has given to my work. Her attention to detail is brilliant, and she has a keen intuition into what an author is going for, in regards to narrative style. She gives her whole heart to what she does and I know there is no way I would be releasing this book without her insight to help navigate me in the right direction."
—Tia Day, author of Lucy's Legacy
"Katrina was absolutely wonderful. She took the time to truly understand the plot, the motives of my characters, as well as the overall story I was trying to tell. My novel is infinitely better because of her thoroughness. She collaborates very closely with the authors to try to completely understand the voice they are trying to give their characters, and works hard to help them jump off the page!"
—Ray Robbio, author of The Alters
