As a writer who has recently had my novel published, I knew that with the expertise of publisher Karen Hodges Miller that my work would be handled professionally. With over twenty years of experience, she has an exceptional eye for editing and proofreading. Although most editors and publishers, I’m sure, could claim similar credentials, Karen Hodges Miller brings other unique attributes than just a polished written work. She is an exceptional communicator who cultivates the writer. I realized shortly after submitting my manuscript to her, that she was also assisting me become a better writer.

Writing is by nature such a solitary activity that writers may often find themselves second guessing the validity of their words, often deleting and rewriting in a forest of overlapping pathways, often bringing a writer into confusion, if not self-doubt. But writing to be published should not be a solitary process. Working with Karen, I found a renewed self-confidence. In our ongoing discussions, she was always available, giving abundant time, intuitively listening, and patiently helping me to clarify my intentions with her intelligent and constructive direction for publication.

I realize that in life there are certain individuals who are a special breed. Those who are not only exceptional at their trade, but persons who are innately ethical and good people. Karen Hodges Miller is such a person, and I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to know and work with her. (5 stars)
