As a new writer, I was nervous about putting together my first book but Emerging Ink Solutions put my mind at ease. Not only is Kara Scrivener an incredibly talented editor but also an amazing collaborator! She really takes the time to get to know your style of writing and voice so that the vision of your book can come to fruition. She also is super responsive to any of your needs, provides great insight and guided me each step of the way until my book was ready to be published. The experience working with her was far beyond my expectations and most importantly made me a better writer. I can't wait to write more books and to work with Kara again!
I love You More Than My Phone. Isn't That Enough?
I highly recommend Emerging Ink Solutions as an editorial service to prepare for publishing. When I started with EIS, my non-fiction manuscript had already undergone a lite edit. However, Kara's editorial skills, diligence, and care brought the narrative in my book to the next level. She did everything stated in our agreement, and more. Not only did she devote her personal time, but collaborated with other editor/experts that provided input to my work as well. I am very satisfied with everything Kara has done for me.
Roots of the Kingdom
"Kara [Scrivener] has done superb editing work on three of my novels and I would enthusiastically recommend her as an editor for virtually any project. As a novelist herself, she has an excellent feel for storytelling and for what psychically works and what doesn’t. Her attention to detail makes for excellent copyediting (for typos, consistency, grammar, etc.), but she goes beyond that to get an overall picture of your work, intuiting your story’s strengths and weaknesses. Her manner is always one of wanting to help you
improve your writing, not merely to critique it. I’ve found her lengthy marginalia in her edits to be helpful in not only assessing how my novels are functioning, but also in giving me insight about improving future novels."

"Kara is a fantastic editor. She made the whole process from beginning to end seamless and stress free. She was always quick with a response to any questions, always had great advice, and was never shy about giving insightful comments. She made my manuscript exponentially better with her expertise and knowledge. I cannot wait to work with Kara in the future!"
"I have found that every single successful person I have ever known had a turning point. The turning point was when they made a clear, specific decision that they weren't going to live like this anymore, they were going to achieve success. I decided to surround myself with successful people, [people] who possessed great work ethics, people smarter than me, and people who possessed skills in areas where I was weak and they were strong. People create their own success by learning what they need to learn and then by practicing it until they become proficient at it. Greatness in life is only possible when you become outstanding at your chosen field. I chose Kara Scrivener as my editor and ghostwriter [because] [s]he possesses greatness [in] her chosen field."

"Kara was incredibly helpful throughout the the editing and publishing process. She was always available and generous with her time and expertise. She patiently worked with us through a number of cover revisions until we found the right one. Her knowledge and experience made the entire publishing process very easy and I cannot imagine getting this done without the benefit of her expertise."

"Kara is an extremely talented Editor. Her responsiveness and clear communication style make working with Emerging Ink Solutions an absolute delight. I have already recommended Kara to other aspiring writers and hope to work with her again in the future. This was an extremely positive and seamless experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."

"What a delightful experience I had working with Kara at Emerging Ink Solutions! She is an excellent editor, gave very helpful suggestions, is creative and most thorough in her work. Her contact with a writer continues long after a manuscript is in book form and posted on Amazon. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again."
Discipline with Purpose: Nurturing a Child's Self-Discipline
"Kara was my savior, in an author/editor sort of way. I loved the personal service and attentiveness. I was HER client, not another client of a business that does editing. She isn't a good value, she is a GREAT value, and great person and helped me improve my book significantly and designed my cover almost magically. I can't recommend her highly enough."
Molly, Mushrooms, and Mayhem: Stories from Inside the Music Festival Tent
Working with Kara and her Emerging Ink team was an amazing experience as a first-time author. Kara and her team were thorough and incredibly responsive to my every question. I felt like it was a personal partnership in which she and her team were just as invested in putting out a quality product as I was. If I go through the process of self-publishing again my first call will be to Emerging Ink!
