I am so pleased with the final product. I approached Karen with a children’s book which exceeded 6,000 words. She understood my vision and worked with me every step of the way. She is full of excellent ideas and deserves the recognition for helping me with my first book. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to edit or improve any story. The pricing is very reasonable. The level of detail and personalized service she provided me with far exceeded my expectations. I will be working with her again very soon. Thank you, Karen. I am ever so grateful.



Thank you for all the time and attention you put into my manuscript. My story, only so much better! You truly have a talent. I would like to work with you again in the near future. I’m working on a few projects that I’m sure will need your special expertise.



Karen, YOU NAILED IT! I have tears of joy in my eyes right now. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Blake Wayman

I made your suggested changes and it actually made for less word count and once I put the changes in, I really see how it tightened the story up. You’re a genius!

IT’S PERFECT!!!! Thank you so much Karen. You are really great at what you do. We talked over the phone once and I gave you a few notes, and you turned it into a masterpiece. I found you while doing a search on Google and saw nothing but great reviews. Now, I can see why.

I am laughing. This is a great story and it sounds like my boys. I don’t understand how you can take words and make it work. You are a true writer. Thank you.

Lillian Bobbitt


I’m impressed by your accuracy in the work and your recurring questions about how I think based on my ideas. This suggests a comprehensive professionalism. You do not write for you, you do not even write for my sake, but primarily for readers. It´s an impressive approach that strongly shines through the work. You have most likely created a work that will be noticed and be seen for a long time. Thanks for all your help Karen. If you don’t mind, I will gladly return.

Oh, you are so good at what you do. You used my words, turned them all around and the transition from conversation to action is so smooth. I am so amazed! My meaning is still being conveyed only stronger than I ever could of imagined or could have done. You are a fast worker as well. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am so pleased!

My third children’s picture book is finished with the editing process and is now going to the illustrator for the pictures! “Kimmy Finds Her Key” follows Kimmy as she finds her key to happiness.

And, thank you, Karen Cioffi-Ventrice, my editor. A wonderful one she is, too!

I just wanted to let you know that “The Pea in the Peanut Butter” is going to be my first picture book published! I don’t know if you remember editing this story, but you did and gave me some excellent advice, which I took. Thanks for all your help!!

While helping me, Karen’s performance was exemplary. Karen is a conscientious, highly-skilled writer. She is detail oriented and has a firm grasp of writing. Karen has a great ability to write in a way that can be understood and entertaining to all.
