Professional Editing and Book Doctoring Services
Greetings, Writer friends!
You need an editor to help you and your book look fabulous!
Without professional editing, your book can become an embarrassment instead of your dream. Think about it.
Imagine a world of books so full of error-stricken content that you are haunted by them.
Okay, wake up; that’s just a nightmare.
But maybe you have witnessed some of these atrocities. (Insert audible gasp here.) Admittedly, I have painted a dramatic picture. But honestly, when you spot one of these books, your heart sinks for that author. What if that author is you? Horrors!
I promise that the pages of your book will not somehow jump out and slap you in the face. But you may wish they had for that wake-up call. Mistakes in a book can be embarrassing and costly.
You can avoid that pain!
Use an editor to keep a nightmare from disrupting your author dreams. A good editor can do more than correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Yes, we do that. But we can also spot things like wordiness, unintentional shifts in tone and voice, word choice issues, overuse of particular words, transitions, clarity, and accuracy. We can even help you finish your book when you get stuck or are simply tired of looking at it. We can take that burden from you.
Now you need to determine what kind of editor you need. For an explanation of the different types of editors, what they do, and the starting fee for each, go to my services page.
It is my job to help you, the author, shine.

Finally, perform a fresh edit.
As a published author myself, I love non-fiction books and the authors that create them.
My passion is to help those authors shine by offering superb editing and book doctoring services.
I am skilled and experienced in developmental editing, line editing, and copy editing. I am also an expert book doctor and have helped countless authors finish their books after they were stuck.
I can lend you the helping hand you need to create your next masterpiece!

Karen Hunsanger is a beautiful writer and a conscientious developmental editor. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone as caring as she is, and it shows in her writing. I was honored to be one of the stories in her first book, Surrounded By Champions, and got to witness first-hand her process and thoughtfulness. I highly recommend Karen to anyone who wants to publish a quality product.

Karen Hunsanger is a true professional and a pleasure to work with! She has the unique ability to find the heart of a story and carefully bring the emotion to the surface, so it resonates with the reader. She handles each project with the care and concern it deserves, not resting until she -and the author - are happy with the results. But the thing that impressed me the most is the joy Karen exudes from diving into a good story. As an author, it made me trust her immediately because handing your story off to the care of someone else can be a bit unnerving. Not only did she handle it well, but she also made it better! I had never worked with a developmental editor before, but I knew I was in a place where we needed help. Writing a book is a HUGE undertaking. I compare it to climbing a mountain. Just when you think you're done with hard work (at the apex of the mountain in this analogy), you realize you're only at the halfway point of the process. I was getting exhausted, so it was great to have Karen bear some of the weight of the project. She helped me see from a fresh perspective and had some great ideas to refine the manuscript. I knew we had a good story, but Karen took it from good to great! This book would not have been as strong as it ended up without Karen's input.

I recently hired Karen to provide developmental editing to the manuscript of my first book. She started by clarifying my goals with the project and then got to work. Her turnaround time was well within the promised window.... and her changes and feedback were excellent. She cleaned up parts I didn't even know were "messy," and she pulled it all together so that it was consistent and clear. I am thrilled with the finished product and am so grateful for her skill and professionalism.

I have just had the absolute pleasure of working with Karen. Karen edited my latest book, and it has been the best experience. I gave her my words, and she made them become a book. Karen has a calm and kind manner and immediately put me at ease about letting her work on my precious book. She took the time to understand me and the book's content. She kept in touch with me throughout, checking on any areas she thought may need changing. Karen completed the editing in the time quoted. I could not have asked for a better service. I can highly recommend Karen for her editing services. She is amazing, and I will be using her editing services for all of my books from now on.
