I am Karen Rodgers, president and CEO of Critique Editing Services. I am a native of Youngstown, Ohio where my love of reading and writing began. I have written computer-based training, and since moving to the Northern Virginia area, I have worked as a technical writer/editor for several years for various Federal government agencies, but it wasn't until I began editing books that I felt I'd found my calling. Critique Editing Services was born out of a desire to help authors present a clean, error-free book that doesn't distract readers from the message the author wants to convey.
Critique is Christ-centered and customer focused. My main goal is to get your book ready for publishing. But let's be honest, there are a lot of editing companies out there...why should you choose mine?
Critique is a small company with a very low overhead, which allows me to keep my rates low. Also, I genuinely care about my clients. It shows in the care I take with their manuscripts and the extra time I take to make sure they're satisfied. In fact I was featured as a recommended editor by one of my clients, Michelle Stimpson, in her book titled "The 21-Day Publishing Plan".
So give me a try. Let me edit your first chapter for free. Then when you're convinced that I'm the right choice for you, go to the Services link, determine which one best suits your needs, and then email me at I'll contact you within 24 hours.
