If I had to sum up my experience into just one word it would be: impressive!
From the first moment of contact with Kingsman Editing, I felt comfortable and welcomed. My emails all received a quick response and the thorough questionnaires made the entire process simple. I was able to work with Cayce personally and she was able to make my story the best version of itself. She went above and beyond to offer reader insight and helped my prose to shine. She was even able to put me in contact with an amazing designer, Joel Torres, who helped make my cover pop! I definitely recommend Kingsman Editing to all my author friends.
I am an old storyteller (72 years) that finally decided to right one down. After many rounds of editors with varying degrees of success, Cayce was recommended to me. I thought my “baby” was perfect. It was not. After numerous chats, Cayce recommended the “Red Pen Consultation,” and I was shocked at what I got back. Her notes were clear and precise. Her explanations on why the notes of that scene made me see what she saw. It was the first time someone had looked at my story as a reader. She did not try to get the story to say what an editor wants it to say. She explained why as a reader she was having trouble following that scene or that scene came to life. The entire consultation was how I could bring my story to life for the reader. She could have recommended the developmental edit but she wanted me to tell my story the best way I can first. As a new writer, this experience has been an incredibly positive learning experience for my writing and on how a great editing service should work. I have and will recommend Cayce’s service to anyone needing an editor and especially for those that are just starting. Thanks again, Cayce. I hope you will be available when I finish with your recommendations to see if I have learned anything.
Caycee is a kind, funny, and an amazing editor who will help you bring out the best of your project. Though I have only had one, soon to be two stories edited by her for her Authors Tale Anthology series, I can’t express how excited I am to hopefully work with her on a full length project soon!
Cayce is a gifted and kindhearted editor, always willing to help out fledgling writers.
I highly recommend Cayce for your book editing needs! She very knowledgeable, meticulous, and she can ask really insightful questions that can take your story to the next level. I initially received a sample edit and I was blown away by the level of detail!
As a relatively new writer I wanted a more comprehensive look at my first novel. I went with the Developmental Editing service and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. Cayce stuck to her schedule and was thorough. Her comments were insightful and direct without being harsh. During the consultation she took time to discuss any questions or concerns I had as well as expanding on her comments. The whole process has been an invaluable experience and I would highly recommend her to any writer! Thanks again Cayce!
Victory Betting is the first book that I wrote—a book about horse race betting. I want to express my gratitude to Cayce Berryman for helping me to finish my book. She has been very cooperative, polite, and helpful as a professional editor. I would like to recommend Cayce as editor to many book writers.
Cayce’s edit of my upcoming novel was precise, concise, and helped me sharpen things I’d overlooked in a manuscript I’d read a million times. She kept in contact with me throughout the process, and I was thrilled with the results!
She does an excellent job. I asked her to edit my paper, and she graciously did it in four days.
Working with Cayce on a developmental edit has been absolutely wonderful. Her notes on my manuscript went above and beyond any expectations I ever had. She always made time for me. She answered my many questions quickly. She made my project better. I’ll definitely use Cayce with my future projects.
I have enlisted Cayce’s help for a few of my projects and will continue to do so. She is very detail oriented and does not hesitate to tell me the things about my stories that I need to hear, and not just what I want to hear. Any correspondence is always helpful and friendly, and I can rest assured that my stories are always well looked after. I would recommend her service to anyone.
I am so thankful for Cayce and the awesome editing that she provided me. As a first time author, I was really nervous about my manuscript and had numerous questions involving editing and publishing in general. She was very patient with me and explained everything in ways that a newbie such as myself could understand. Because my children’s picture book is written in rhyme, I wanted someone who was knowledgeable about this specialized type of writing. Her editing was extremely thorough, and she took her time and made sure that each of my stanzas was perfect. The program that she uses to edit the manuscript is very user friendly. I love that she offered suggestions for different word choices, as well as various tips to improve my writing. I also really appreciate the fact that she is always available if a question should arise. Whenever I send her a message, she willingly, and promptly, answers all of my questions. I will definitely be using her services for other aspects of my book and highly recommend her.
Cayce Berryman is excellent! The editing she did on my manuscript was phenomenal. She is very thorough and went above and beyond to make sure my novel would be the best it could be. She was very interactive throughout the process. I didn’t feel like she just went through my manuscript and tore it up with a red pen. Instead, I felt like she helped me grow as a writer by pointing out what wasn’t working as well as the good points of my work. Cayce worked in a very timely manner, even finishing the editing earlier than expected. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional, thorough, and efficient editing.
I stumbled upon Cayce randomly and extremely ungraciously with a manuscript that I had completed the day before that I didn’t go back and look over…not once. That being so, I’m fairly certain there was A TON of work to be done on her part and she did it in such a timely manner and the changes she suggested helped make my book the best that it could be. I will not use any other editor for my upcoming projects! She’s thorough, creative, and patient when need be. I highly recommend her services!
Cayce is great! Whether you are a budding new author or a seasoned veteran she is sure to be able to offer services to suit your needs. Cayce was able to help me fix plot holes, work on my story pacing, and polish all my grammar edits. Without Cayce, my novel would have been a disaster. What I appreciated most about working with her was that she was available to me at any time. She was always willing to sit down for a quick chat and e-mail questions were always answered in a timely manner. I will definitely be using Cayce’s services for all my future projects.
I’m a first-time writer. Having never written anything before or even read much, it was needless to say I needed work. Being in my forties, everything I’ve learned about writing, grammar, and punctuation was lost some twenty-five years ago. That’s where Cayce came in. Not only did her editing re-teach me about some the basics of writing; most importantly, she got me out of my own head, and I started outwardly seeing my work as others would want to see it.
As for her completion time, it was quick, well within the window of what she estimated. I would definitely recommend her services to any writer.
I really don’t know where to begin. This was actually my very first manuscript. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started writing my memoir and I was looking for an editor
