"Thanks to my copyeditor, Kristi Hein, for her exacting perspective and thoughtful questions that made this book that much better."
"Kristi Hein, our copy editor, carefully and brilliantly made sure to catch and help us address errors, ambiguities, and inconsistencies both large and small."
"Wiley's lasersharp word samurai, Kristi Hein, expertly copyedited the final manuscript."
"A special thanks to our marvelous copyeditor, Kristi Hein, who brought such clarity to our thinking."
"WOW, YOU'RE GOOD! Thank goodness we had the smarts to send this to you, as the client kept insisting that it was ready to print!"
"I did want to be sure and tell you again how much I appreciate your work and how many great catches you have made that make my job so much more manageable! Really stellar job, and I'm so glad you took [Golden Gate Gardening] on."
"Kristi Hein's double-edged approach to editing combines a rich creative sense with well-honed technical expertise: she has both breadth of vision and a nitpicker's eye. I have made countless improvements to my work based on her suggestions, and she has the priceless gift of being able to deliver these suggestions in a manner that is at once direct and delicate."
"I'd like to thank you for the incredible job you did on my book. After your changes, it really came to life. Better than I ever imagined.... [T]hank you so much for your talents and effort."
"Thanks for all your hard work on the [Quicken Store] project. Your calm demeanor has helped move this thing forward in our not-too-calm Internet world."
"Kristi has an amazing ability to quickly develop (or mimic) the necessary tone and style for any project on which I've worked with her, whether it be writing, developmental editing, or copyediting. She has a rare ability to see the big picture, yet keep an eye for detail. Every project she has worked on with me has been vastly improved thanks to her keen eye and acute sensibilities. She's a pleasure to work with."
"I've now finished reviewing your work and I wanted to write and thank you for doing such a great job. Your attention to detail and overall comments were excellent; I'm so pleased that Lorena recommended you.... I'll definitely be in touch for future projects."
"Thanks for the great job you did in helping me put together the right ideas in the right words."
"You were a great copy editor for our book. You not only caught myriad little errors and inconsistencies in the manuscript, but your insights, suggestions, and wonderful sense of continuity were all invaluable in helping us take the book to a whole new level of excellence."
"Kristi has an exceptional ability to notice and question just the right things. Her feedback helped me to put the finishing touches on a technical training program that I was developing. My client's reaction was so unanimously positive that this product became the model for their enterprise-wide learning curriculum."
"Thank you very much for all your diligence and follow-through. I really do appreciate your stick-to-itiveness and your professionalism."
"Kristi Hein provided invaluable editorial assistance when I was trying to get out Raychem's worldwide Electronics Products Catalog, which just kept growing and growing -- to 375 pages. Her attention to detail and sense of humor made her a valuable addition to our team."
"My first impression was amazement. I totally agree with your precise edit. You hit the nail on the head.
"I've attended many writing groups in my time and have never received the clarity of observation that you have shown with your sample edit. My hat's off to you."
"I got the best compliment today about [your] direct mail marketing letter. One of the bed-and-breakfast inns that I sent the letter to thought it was the best letter he'd ever read. He remembered my name, without the least bit of urging from me. He knew my company name, he knew everything! It was so nice to hear that...so I just wanted to give you the same feelings about your work."
"Kristi has researched and written hundreds of lively, accurate
plant descriptions for several of our garden-related software
programs, as well as helped us improve our software in countless other
ways. She is a tremendous joy to work with, because of both the
quality of her work and the ease of working with her. She has a good
sense of when to focus on the details, and when to look at the big
picture -- a rare combination.
