Completed Project: “Rockstar’s Temptation” (Decoy #4) by K. T. Fisher

Hello, everyone!

I received a lovely testimonial from Author K. T. Fisher on how she feels about me and editing her book, “Rockstar’s Temptation”, and I wanted to share it with you.

❤ Thank you so much, Kellie! You humble me with your kind words, and I cannot wait to work for you again in the future. ❤

“I haven’t used an editor before but I thought I needed to start, and I was pointed in Karen’s direction – I am so glad I made this decision! Right from the start, I knew I had picked the right person to trust with my work. Karen has different packages for your budget or choice of editing, and all are at great prices. She was amazing when I was being a pain with my deadline, and she catered for me perfectly. When I received the edits, they were clear and pretty easy to see what needed changing, and I loved her own personal notes on how she was enjoying the book. Those personal touches meant a lot to me and put a smile on my face, even with a stressful deadline creeping up on me.
Thank you so much, Karen, I am definitely coming back to you, so be prepared! xx”

Oh, I am SO ready! 😉

Completed Project: “Withering Hope” by Layla Hagen

Hi, everyone!

I finished a job for the lovely author, Layla Hagen, last week, and she has truly humbled me with her words. This is her testimonial:

“I highly recommend working with Karen. She is a fantastic beta reader. Her attention to detail is invaluable. At the same time, she can see the bigger picture, and how each little piece of a story contributes toward it.
She connects with the writing at a deep level, and so is able to suggest changes that resonate with the characters and the story.”

Her book, “Withering Hope”, which is set to release 19th January, 2015, is a standalone contemporary romance.
This is a truly wonderful story! Deeply emotional, and it made me cry…just beautiful.

Layla is the author of The Lost Series, and if you are a lover of romance novels, like me, I definitely recommend that you read it.

❤ Thank you again, Layla! ❤

SYNOPSIS

Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.

But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.

Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.

Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.

The Word Wench

Hello & Welcome!

My name is Karen and I am a bookaholic 😉

Besides finally having decided to take the plunge and start my own editing business, I have been a book blogger for the past year. I enjoy reading New Adult, Adult Contemporary/Erotic Romance and Romantic Suspense – I would most definitely say that my knowledge base lies with these genres.

I come from a home filled with books, and ever since I was a girl, I was encouraged to read as often as possible – “You’re never bored when you’re getting lost within the pages of a wonderful book,” my grandmother used to say, and how wise she was. Naturally, I call books my first and everlasting love – a bit nerdy, perhaps, but that is how I feel.

I have studied English at the University Of Copenhagen, and I have always wanted to be a professional editor. Sadly, it is a very limited field in my country, without many available jobs, so I decided to let go of my dream 10 years ago. Lately, though, I have felt that it was time for me to start moving forward and try being brave for once – so that is what I am doing now!

What I can guarantee should you choose me to be your editor:

  • Professionalism
  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity

These are words I live by every day.

Furthermore, I am well versed in both American English and British English – meaning, that I use two kinds of Encylopedias for references: The Merriam-Webster Dictionary & Thesaurus; and The Oxford English Dictionary.

I would like to add that I have been a beta reader for different authors, each with their own unique voice, and besides loving their work, it has been wonderful to know that my comments and suggestions have been taken seriously – and the fact that they have allowed me to correct their grammatical errors as well has been a very enjoyable and fulfilling experience every time.

I realise that I am the new kid on the block, so to speak, in the editing business, but I am hoping that you are willing to take a chance on me anyway.

You are more than welcome to contact me if you have any concerns or/and questions, of course – you can email me at: wordwenchediting@gmail.com. And if you just want to say “Hello”, I would love that as well.

I look forward to hearing from you!

/Karen
