Testimonials

Neither of us had any idea of how to take our ideas for SarasotaFoodies.com and turn them into a working website. We can’t express how happy we are with the site. We receive nothing but compliments for SarasotaFoodies.com, and in a short time we have already been profiled on the local radio station, as well as on a few web-based news sites. We cannot thank you enough for being able to take our vague concept and turn it into something people are talking about. We couldn’t have done it with anyone else. Jill Berg and Mart Solu, SarasotaFoodies.com, Sarasota, FL

I’ve worked with Kay a few times now and can’t imagine how I’d make the relationship any better. First of all, she writes really well and makes it a point to know the message(s) I’m trying to get across.  Secondly, she’s very patient, even with a fickle client like me who could have possibly driven her crazy if she had allowed it.  She’s very smart and talented in a wide range of areas. She understands customers and marketing and gives good advice when needed.  She’s sweet but not afraid to give an opinion if she feels it suits her client’s best interest.  I’m very happy to know her and highly recommend her.  Chad Hendrix, Hendrix Properties, Charlotte, NC

I’ve worked with Kay on several projects and recommend her and her team at Zebo Media Group without reservation. Not only is Kay organized and diligent, she is also very personable, easy to work with, and she delivers great results. If you’re looking for a professional with marketing expertise, I highly encourage you to contact Kay. Wendy Scott, Owner, WordDazzle.com, Lakeland, FL

Kay was extremely helpful with asking targeted questions related to the content, and her editing significantly enhanced the flow of the manuscript. She was extremely engaged in the entire process in a proactive manner and went well beyond my expectations in all aspects of her work. Joel Van Dijk, author, Geography of Grace, Guatemala City, Guatemala

Kay’s substantial revisions honed content, improved word choice, enhanced tone, and sharpened presentation. Without her help, I never could have finished such a massive and all-consuming project. JoDee Luna, author of Refrain from the Identical: Insight and Inspiration for Creative Eclectics, Lancaster, CA

My story doesn’t just look better because Kay edited it—this story is better. If I had the money for full-time, my “endorsement” would be: find another editor. This one’s all mine.  Jody Rawley, science fiction writer and owner of Capital Media Enterprise, Richmond, VA
