Off we go:


Thank you so much Karen!! When my sister and I were little, my dad used to make up bedtime stories for us and I think he enjoyed them as much as we did! Over 40 years later, he’s still telling the same one or two to my daughter. I think it has always been a bit of a dream for him to have one of his stories published. Unfortunately his law degree really didn’t prepare him to write stories. Thanks to Karen his story about a Magic Ice Cream Bear is now a book! I couldn’t have done it without her! She made an almost octogenarian very happy and proud. Thank you!

Karen, it was an honor working with you. I appreciate your professionalism and creativity, and couldn’t be happier with the final product you delivered. I’m now very confident that my story will soon find a publishing home. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.



This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with Karen. Writing a sequel to my children’s book, Karen has created a story consistent with the themes and ‘feel’ of the first book. Karen’s very easy to work with – great communication, attitude and great product delivered! I would not hesitate to work with her again.

It has been a pleasure to work with Karen Cioffi on eight children’s books. Karen was able to take a difficult concept with the “seedling ideas” presented to her and create an intriguing storyline. Karen always maintained timelines for both drafts and revisions. She was available for communication throughout the process. It was a joy to work with Karen and have her assistance to bring my ideas to life through the written word. I look forward to working with Karen again and again. There is no need to look further for a skilled writer. Karen Cioffi is the most wonderful person that I could have selected!

Writing a novel is a daunting experience, especially for a newbie like myself.

Thank God for Karen. She is a real professional. She was able to edit, rewrite, and give my novel the structure it needed. She brought my characters to life. Her coaching and kind patience helped me gain the confidence that I needed to complete my work.

I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to those who are starting out or even those who have been writing for a long time. She just has that insight to make anyone’s work that much better. I’m looking forward to working with her again.

Thank you, Karen, for the great experience.

It has been a wonderful experience watching you turn my story into a book worthy story.  Again your ability to condense it and write the dialog is impressive.  Not only that but how you connected with the characters.  I’m so glad I decided to work with a professional writer.

Big thanks for helping me create a children’s story based on my idea! The result is a sweet story with a rich, yet suitable language for a young target group.

I definitely feel I have been a big part of developing this story, and throughout the process I have appreciated the open and easygoing communication; you have always responded promptly and to the point. I would not hesitate to work with you again should the opportunity arise!



Thank you Karen for making my book come alive. The final product is something I can be proud of, I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thanks for you professionalism and your efficiency.
Working with you has been a great pleasure, and I look forward to writing more wonderful books with you.

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.



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.

Candis Butler


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!!
