Across Seward Park
Penny Tunes Publshing
"Kim Taylor Blakemore is an exceptionally gifted mentor and editor with a genuine passion for the project of being a writer. My current novel began as a two-paragraph writing exercise in one of Kim’s workshops and Kim supported me all the way, combining scrupulous rigor with kindness, generosity and heart. Kim has an intuitive grasp of what I’m trying to achieve. Her critical antennae are laser sharp and her recommendations have always been dead on the money. I come away from every session encouraged, renewed and rearing to move forward. I truly could not have written this book without her."

"Writing is generally a solitary endeavor, riddled with angst and uncertainty. Having someone who provides clarity and insight to the process is an invaluable resource, perhaps even a necessity. When writing my novel Kim acted as a sounding board, developmental editor, coach and even helped with queries and submissions. I cannot image having had a better guide shepherd me through the process."
- Micah Thorp, Writers Well Member, author of UNCLE JOE'S MUSE (Open Books Publishing)
The Model Spy
"I have worked with Kim on multiple novel projects and found her guidance invaluable. She reads carefully and closely and provides incisive, constructive, and practical feedback. She strikes a wonderful balance between pushing for improvement and lending support. I highly recommend her to anybody ready to take their project to the next level.”
- Maryka Biaggio, Writers Well member, author of THE MODEL SPY (Sunbury Press), EDEN WAITS (Sunbury Press), THE POINT OF VANISHING (Sunbury Press), and PARLOR GAMES (Anchor)
