Book Assessment

At Quantum Shift Media we believe a book has a life of its own. You've probably experienced this as you wrote it - watching your book take you places you didn't know you were going to go! This means the story you are telling really wants to be told. And we want to help you tell it so that it reaches as many people as possible.

This is a high-level assessment of your manuscript. Our feedback will be honest keeping you and the reader in mind. We spend time connecting with your book on an energetic level so we know what the book wants to be and where it wants to go.

We would love to edit and publish your book! So, as an added bonus, when you work with us, we will credit half of the book assessment toward
any of our services.

Jim, Attorney

Keren Kilgore did an assessment of my book after I worked on it for over ten years. She was extremely helpful and encouraging. She covered every angle, missing nothing. I am completely satisfied and recommend her without reservation.

My book assessment with Keren was excellent. The connection, cooperation and suggestions were monumental. The input led to considerable positive changes to my work. Working with Keren was comfortable, convenient and impactful. I would definitely recommend Keren and Quantum Shift Media to other authors.
