Samples & Testimonials

Every editor works a little bit differently. In all of my edits, I try to maintain a positive professionalism. I like to note strengths while encouraging the author use their best words to communicate the message.

These editing samples will give you an idea of my style. Please contact me if you’d like a free sample edit of your own work.

“THANK YOU for the fabulous job you did on my book. Your edits were smart and thorough. You have an eagle eye! I really appreciate your work.”

“Carrie is one of the best and for IGS, always available. We work with the White House and often get in a crunch, but Carrie is ready and available and her work is EXCELLENT. She is our go-to in-house editor for sure. As a PR firm, we need a second set of eyes and she nails it every time.”
