What Clients Are Saying

“I’m absolutely delighted with your work on this. It’s exactly what I hoped for—an attention to both the large and detailed inconsistencies in the story that I’d missed, and an excellent learning experience in terms of understanding what my particular quirks are as a writer. You’re very talented to be able to do this!”

Holly Cave, science fiction author

“I chose Sarah as an editor based on her love of science fiction. What I got was a professional partner who came to the project with a high level of skill, editing knowledge, and developmental insight that made my manuscript publication-ready. Sarah turned out to be exactly what I was seeking in an editor: knowledgeable about the rules, gentle enough to allow my voice to shine through, and always willing to keep the story in mind.”

David Bruns, sci-fi author

“Sarah Kolb-Williams is the kind of freelance editor that you always hope you’ll work with—conscientious, responsive, and collaborative. She has an eye for detail, but is particular—not pedantic (something which is greatly appreciated when working with genres such as Science Fiction and Fantasy, which often come with their own language rules).”
