Kerri is amazing. I have used her for multiple projects and she always goes above and beyond. I highly recommend her and will use her again.
PRAISE FOR UTOPIAN EDITING
Kerri edited my first novel. I was highly impressed by her skill and knowledge. All of her edits were on point, but it was her questions, ideas, and suggestions that pushed me to make more significant changes that resulted in a much stronger story. Her attention to detail was astounding! Although a fantasy novel, Kerri asked questions about the physics and logistics that I doubt many others would have caught. Her keen mind caught holes in the plot, and she suggested logical fixes. I enjoyed working with Kerri, and I am looking forward to presenting her with my next project!

I can’t wait to work with Kerri again. She knew exactly what I wanted and never steered me wrong. Her research was impeccable and feedback always spot-on and well thought out. There were even things she uncovered that I had no idea existed and steered me clear of quite a few innocent but potentially controversial foibles. I have and will continue to recommend her to all of my author friends.
Kerri was a pleasure to work with. She has the right balance of technical knowledge (i.e., how to edit, grammar rules, etc.) mixed with creative / story insight. One thing I really like about her is that she does an excellent job of maintaining the author’s voice. Some editors will edit the uniqueness out of your work. Not Kerri. She polishes the unique gem you’ve created while making astute comments and asking questions that improve its quality. She definitely made my book better in more ways than one. I will be hiring her for future projects.
It was an absolute pleasure partnering with Kerri, gaining her expertise in editing and developmental assistance with my novel. Her attention and approach to detail, plot and character consistency, and theme exceeded my expectations. She was honest and gracious when approaching my manuscript, eager to highlight strengths in my writing, but also constructive when addressing areas and content to improve. I was also impressed by her quick responsiveness and accessibility for any questions and concerns I had throughout. As I continue revising my current project and take on future projects, I look forward to working with Kerri!
Very professional, timely, and gives honest, quality feedback. I would recommend! Thanks, Kerri.
Kerri was a joy to work with on my book project. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a compassionate and excellent editor.
Kerri did everything with professionalism and aplomb, and I greatly enjoyed working with her. She did everything I needed: No detail or grammatical error was too small to correct in her copy edit; her ideas to develop the characters and story were right on target; and her edits helped the narrative flow far more smoothly. Most of all, she cared and wanted to help me produce the best work possible.
Kerri and I worked together for several years putting out The Mars Quarterly (TMQ) on behalf of the Mars Society, a major national space advocacy group. Her involvement – primarily in the area of editing – was invaluable to our efforts to make TMQ a quality online publication. She was a tremendous help, and I highly recommend her for any editing work in the future.
Kerri provided excellent, spot-on editing for my poetry book. Her edits made the poems and other writing clearer and more powerful. She was professional and timely in her work and was flexible when I needed it. I appreciated Kerri’s positive approach. I felt like I had a real partner in this project. Thank you, Kerri!
