AUTHOR, EDITOR, SPEAKER, ALL-AROUND OKAY-KINDA GAL
"I've engaged with many editors over the years, and cannot say enough good things about working with Ginger Kolbaba at both Marriage Partnership and Today's Christian Woman. Her goal is to help each writer's unique voice be heard--a true blessing!"
--Liz Curtis Higgs, former columnist for Today's Christian Woman and bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
"Ginger is an excellent teacher, writer, speaker, and a complete professional. Her skill set is second to none. When working with
Ginger, I found her to be upbeat, organized, an “out of the box” thinker, and a great encourager. No matter what job she is facing, she is up for the task!”
—Simon Presland, author and founder of The Write Choice
“The strongest element in Ginger’s toolbox is her uncanny ability to see the big picture. She’s a synthesizer—seeing and shaping a writer’s strengths then matching that person’s calling to an urgent audience need. Not every editor can work from that vision, but she does—and she does it well.”
—Patricia Raybon, award-winning author of I Told the Mountain to Move and My First White Friend
"Ginger Kolbaba is a succinct, professional, articulate, and skillful editor, as well as a craftsman with words. As an editor on one of my book projects, she had an ability to help me write clearly and well, without changing the intention or voice of my message. The process of working together was delightful and I ended up with a great friend in the end. I highly recommend Ginger as an exceptional and insightful editor."
--Sally Clarkson, author of Dancing with My Father
"I have renamed Ginger Kolbaba 'the Great Gingerdini.' She worked her training and editing magic, which guided my writing from 'flailing infant' to flying high.'"
--Patty Ostrem, freelance author
"Ginger Kolbaba was my doula. Ginger, there were times I really didn't like you. But now I'm your biggest fan! The process was hard, but I'm so happy with the final result."
--Sheila Wray Gregoire, author of 9 Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage
"Ginger has crazy, mad, genius skills when it comes to reading something that looks sort of like a sentence or paragraph and making it sound like somebody smart wrote it."
--Austin Ryan, author of The Radical Worship Solution
"Any time spent with Ginger in the editing process is like taking an advanced writing course. It's time well spent."
--Kim de Blecourt, author of I Call You Mine
