Helping authors get their novels ready to publish.



Stark Contrast Editing believes that all editor and author relationships need to mirror a mentoring process.


The difference between Stark Contrast Editing and other editing companies is that the author will experience personal one-on-one communication with the editor to properly work on bringing the manuscript to a publishable standard.

Together, we have turned my novel into something I am extremely proud of. Katelyn’s process is thorough and effective.
— K.V. Scruggs
Her passion for my book, as well as her belief in me, cannot be expressed with any words I can think of. As long as Katelyn is editing, I will not be going anywhere else.
— Joe Slonaker
There are bound to be times when you want to dig your heels in and not give in to suggestions, but I never felt I had that problem with Katelyn.
— Emily Herring Dunn

You won't believe the difference.
