An editing certificate and book covers in an editorial portfolio are great, but to really get an idea of what it’s like to work with me, it’s helpful to hear what my clients have to say.

Client Testimonials

“Highest recommendation. Carolina is thorough, skilled, extremely helpful—helped transform my work and, after seeing her samples, picked her above six others. Glad I did. I will absolutely work with her again without hesitation. She’s an editor for life.”
—Alfred Eaker
Developmental edit and line edit of novel


“Carolina exceeded our high expectations. Her work was thorough and on time. She gave good value for the money and was a pleasure to work with.”
—Shirley Baker, former vice chancellor of Washington University
Memoir proofread


“I met Carolina through the independent publishing scene in St. Louis. I had just completed a novel and was looking for a knowledgeable and highly professional editor, which I certainly found. She showed depth and breadth of knowledge on a variety of styles and genres, which enabled her to provide meticulous developmental and proofreading edits on a historical fiction novel in a matter of weeks. The editing was effective, because the novel received six manuscript requests from literary agents in four months. Working with her revealed the balance between holistic skills and problem-solving skills required in fiction writing. I would definitely recommend her to both rising authors and established authors.”
—Ryan Byrnes
Developmental edit on historical fiction manuscript, query letter edit, and proofreading

“We hired Carolina VonKampen last April to organize outreach and marketing for the school. She has done everything that we wanted and more. In the last seven months, she has launched school Twitter and Instagram accounts, and increased the number of overall impressions on our school Facebook page. We have had positive feedback from our social media followers. If you need someone to manage social media and websites or to create and edit content, I highly recommend Carolina.”
