General trade nonfiction -- cookbooks, gardening, self-help, nature, humor, health, career, arts, education -- as well as fiction, marcom, and tech
I'm a dedicated editorial professional with decades of experience creating and clarifying words that persuade, inform, entertain, and inspire. Substantive editing is my specialty. I love earning kudos like these:
"First let me thank you for finding such a good editor. I really appreciate Kristi’s thoughtfulness, clarification, queries, and recommendations. Please thank her for me." --Wayne Jonas, MD, "How Healing Works"
"We would also like to thank our copy editor, Kristi Hein, for her tireless and masterful editing. The book you have in your hands is better than it was because of Kristi’s gentle touch and astute suggestions during the editing process." --John P. Forsyth and Georg H. Eifert, "Anxiety Happens"
“Thank you again for the great edit and for making the process such a pleasure. We are all happy . . . and amused with your input and additions and asides.” --Carlye Adler, coauthor with Mikkel Svane of "Startupland"
I look forward to helping you polish what you have to say!
