“Through a series of phone calls, well, more like countless times of me bugging Cristen, she always greeted me with grace, kindness, and at times mercy. Anyone, whether a professional or a novice like me, is looking for some help and assistance with writing, your one stop is Cristen Iris. It’s an over-stated cliche, but I literally could not have done this without her. I had a beat and a concept, but she helped make it solid.”

Billy Kilson, GRAMMY Award ® winning drummer, author of The Solid Beat Concept: A Modern Method for Musical Advancement

"After 15+ years in publishing, I can say that Cristen sets the gold standard for freelance editing. She recently worked with us on a client's memoir proposal, including an extensive amount of co-writing of sample chapters. From the start of the process, I was highly impressed with her writing, her ideas, and just how much organization and inspiration she brought to the project. Her writing was beautiful, clear, and very true to the author's unique voice. Collaborating with her has been a joy for both author and agent. She had tremendous impact on this project, and we will look forward to working with her on many more, given our experience."

“Finding Cristen Iris was one of those instances that you look back on in awe and wonder how you were so fortunate to find a person that you didn’t even know you needed. Without Cristen, I don’t think my book would have ever been published. Cristen gave me the honest feedback and encouragement that I needed to keep going. Not only did she understood the need of my industry (the legal industry) she also nailed my ideal reader (female attorneys).

“Months after our official work finished, she’s continued to reach out to me with ideas and connections to help me in my book launch. I couldn’t be more grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Cristen. I highly recommend Cristen to anyone going through the book writing process.”
