What Authors Are Saying About Working With Adrea
“For anyone seeking a developmental editor, I highly recommend Adrea Kore. She sees to the heart and guts of your story and has a talent not only for empowering your author voice but for suggesting ways to take your writing to a far deeper, and more compelling place.
She is flexible, friendly and has a genuine desire to see your writing become ‘the best it can be’. Her expertise helped breathe life into my ‘Cautionary Tales’. I’ve already ‘booked her in’ for my next project this summer. She is a marvel. Feel free to PM me for more info. “
– Emmanuelle de Maupassant (Author of The Gentlemen’s Club & Cautionary Tales)
“We had great communication about schedules and expectations. It worked out beautifully because her quick turn-around kept me on track and on task.
Adrea helped me find my voice; I felt my writing go from “nice and solid” to “razor-sharp, with fireworks”. She pulled it from me: she gave me a hint here, a suggestion there, and inspired me to run with it. She helped me to write the way I always hoped I could write. She asks a question, and makes you think about the plot and the characters in ways and layers of meaning that you never dreamt of, until you are surprised at your own brilliancy. It was a most rewarding process. Oh, and she sees everything: the hole in the plot, the weakness in a description, the awkward punctuation, and the embarrassing typo.
I would heartily recommend Adrea to any writer who wants to take their craft to the next level. She brings an amazing blend of diplomacy, professionalism, and respect for the writer’s voice and intention.”

“Adrea Kore has been working with me as a Developmental Editor on some of my short stories during March and April 2016, and I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to do so. Adrea has been professional, prompt and extremely good at pointing out how my writing can be improved and sharpened, and I feel that my writing skills are definitely improving as a result of her input. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other writers who may wish to gain an independent and expert eye over their work.”
– Rachel de Vine – Author of Bittersweet Erotic Romance (U.K)
“It was my first time writing in the literary erotica genre. I needed help ensuring the erotic content was actually erotic, not awkward. As my developmental editor, Adrea did just that, and more. She spotted missed opportunities in my draft for more sensuous detail. At her suggestion I took an event my prose only mentioned in passing and turned it into an immersive scene that underscored my heroine’s inner yearning. Thanks to Adrea’s help, my erotic short story “People Like Us” is everything I’d hoped it could be. I highly recomment her for your next story.”
