“Kathy Barthel is an amazing editor who will help your voice shine. As a paramount professional for authors, Kathy’s great communication and pointed questions coupled with her amazing editing skills, allowed me to have peace of mind from our first conversation. Kathy shows genuine concern and diligence to ensure that your voice comes through the pages clearly. I was able to reach International Best Seller this year with a product I am more than proud of.
As this was my first project, I am so grateful to have been able to work with an editor of such caliber. Kathy is very professional and was able to easily understand the message I wanted to convey to my readers. I felt safe to express personal information in the book, as Kathy was very respectful, sensitive, and ensured that my voice came through. I will be very happy to use Kathy’s editing services for my next books.”
“When I was nominated for a prestigious award reflecting my entrepreneurial abilities, I was required to write an entire business plan.
Yikes! Without hesitation, I reached out to Kathy to help me write it because of her professionalism, lengthy career in the writing arena, and her stellar reputation for accuracy and detail.
Kathy interviewed me and drew out of me the deeper story, the personal side, and captured the essence of who I was as a person and business owner. I trusted her completely as I shared very personal information and she got to the core of me.
There were strict guidelines for the technical side of the business plan and Kathy was an expert at abiding by these rules while engaging the reader with the woman behind the nomination.”
“God is a Woman is my first novel and it was a wonderful experience to reach the point where I could collaborate with a great editor.
Kathy steered me in the right direction, offering me great advice on how to develop the story as well as packaging and marketing the book.
A big challenge for me was developing the Q&A for my website. Kathy really helped me to express my views on feminism and I can’t thank her enough for the attention she gave to that side of the project.
I was able to draw on Kathy’s creativity, enthusiasm, and her wealth of expertise on how to develop and deliver my novel. I’m looking forward to working with her on my future projects.”
“Well from all accounts you wowed the women at your breakfast talk. Thank you so much for bringing your enthusiasm, energy and expertise to the group.”
“Really enjoyed that presentation, Kathy! Last Tuesday, was my 55th birthday – thought it was about time to find my voice and reflect that in my business – even if it is “being nice”. I really liked your spin on it to “gentle persuasion”. An active voice, rather than simply passive.
Many thanks for all your insights! I did actually start a blog. It will take a bit of work to get really going, but I was inspired by your talk to finally take the Tumblr plunge!”
I found the whole idea very overwhelming in terms of what to write about and whether anyone would be interesting in reading what I have to say. I was also not overly comfortable sharing personal stories with the public.
I really enjoyed working with you. Your help was exactly what I needed to get started.”
