“I was so happy with the back cover copy that Casey wrote for my new book, Drawn to Dark. I just couldn’t get it right, no matter how hard I tried. And she was fast too! I’m so happy that I found Heart Full of Ink! I will definitely be working with Casey again and highly recommend her services.”

“Finding the right developmental editor is vital to an author’s creative process. It’s a delicate skill that requires providing an influential critique while also giving critical feedback in a non-belittling way. There are not many editors out there who can do this, but Casey has mastered the skill.

Casey reviews manuscripts in a positive way that touches on the strengths of the story, while also pointing out the flaws in a constructive manner. Her notes always bolster my confidence in my writing, and provide fantastic advice/direction on how to improve the story/plot. And her attention to detail is spot on. She’s absolutely brilliant, and I will definitely be working with her on my future projects.”
