  1. Kim Davis set up my website for me and I love it. She did an amazing job. You can check it out at —Alice Brock (The River of Cattle)
  2. Kimberly Davis was not only a pleasure to work with during the production phase of my book, but perhaps most important were her editorial comments on my memoir, which exhibited a thorough and sensitive reading, something that all writers should be so lucky to have. After the book was released, Ms. Davis’s stalwart attitude in promoting it helped my book find its way into the hands of many readers who would have likely never known of its existence had it not been for her.—David Armand (My Mother’s House)
  3. Kim Davis is an insightful, supportive editor who can help shape the concept of a novel, while also functioning as a line editor.  She’s a pleasure to work with.  That she’s also skilled at promotion and knows her way around social media is an added bonus.Erica Abeel (Wild Girls)
