Testimonials

"Brooke is the best of all worlds: She’s incredibly skilled at the craft of line editing, but she’s a master when it comes to the all-important art of the big picture, seeing and suggesting key structural changes that can transform a book. She also gets as engaged as the writer on her projects; she brings sophisticated knowledge of all the other aspects of publishing a book (marketing, distribution, etc.); and she’s just great fun to be in the foxhole with."--Leigh Gallagher, senior editor at Fortune and author of The End of the Suburbs

"In my line of work, if you want to be #1, you have to work with the best people. So when I was writing my first book, The Sell, I was blessed to work with Brooke Carey. She transformed my manuscript from a good one to a great one and made the entire editorial process a complete joy. She definitely deserves a highkick!"—Fredrik EklundNew York Times-bestselling author of The Sell and star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York

"You'll never find a better editor than Brooke Carey. She's brilliant, savvy, and can intuitively grasp what you're trying to do--and then, with her magic track changes, shape it into the best it can be. If you work with Brooke, you'll have an awkward lump in your stomach when people compliment you on how well your book flows--because you'll know you had a secret weapon in Brooke Carey."--Zac BissonnetteNew York Times-bestselling author of How to Be Richer, Smarter, and Better Looking than Your Parents 

"I was lucky enough to work with Brooke on three books during her time at Penguin. I always appreciated her thorough editing--both her attention to detail, and her ability to see when whole sections weren't working (or, after some serious work, when they were!). I highly recommend her for any project you want to take to the next level."--Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast and I Know How She Does It
