“Karen Elliott has a real eye for detail, performing the type of micro-editing that is crucial to a book’s success. Her work is timely, allowing the author and the publisher to stay on schedule, and she is very dedicated to performing the best possible job.” – Award-winning, internationally acclaimed author P.M.Terrell. | www.pmterrell.com
“Without Karen’s skillful help at proofreading, my business and I would have been embarrassed and mortified on several occasions. Not only did Karen find bone-head mistakes I’d overlooked a dozen times on my website and in my newsletter, she gently pointed them out and/or fixed them herself. She knows the language with its quirks and oddities, and she knows how to deal with people. She’s great! What more could you want?” – Anne Hillerman. | www.annehillerman.com | www.wordharvest.com
“I have worked with Karen over the past few months with the greatest satisfaction. She is a scrupulous editor who not only attends to detail but respects the writer’s intent and voice–a rare thing these days. Her writing is wry and fun, with a deep sense of irony too often missing from modern prose. Karen is generous with her time and her expertise, a
woman who has karma well on her side.” Shawn MacKenzie, Writer/Editor, The Dragon Keeper’s Handbook
“I hired Karen S. Elliott (The Word Shark) to proofread several blog posts for my site Heartspoken.com. Not only did she get the work back to me quickly, but the critique she provided was thorough, intelligent, and highly professional. She is very knowledgeable about proper and effective writing in general and blogging in particular, so her suggestions added clarity and energy to my articles. I quickly realized I had some sloppy habits to clean up. I look forward to working with Karen in the future and see her service as far more than a way to catch my mistakes. It’s an investment in the honing of
my own writing craft.” Elizabeth Cottrell, writer/blogger at www.Heartspoken.com, owner of RiverwoodWriter, LLC
