“I’ve got an amazing editor who pretty much taught me to write novels […] I’m eternally grateful to [Rebecca], because all the bad habits of being a screenwriter came out in that first book, about POV and head-hopping and all that kind of stuff. She basically drilled that out of me gently, and held my hand through the first book. I’ve used her ever since. She’s very, very good at looking at the first or second draft and spotting when a character’s not acting in the way that she would expect or plot holes or … She’s got a fantastic idea if you move that scene back, that will make that act much, much pacier.”

It was a real pleasure working with Rebecca. She was able to tailor her services to meet what I needed and what would fit within my budget. She was always clear and quick to communicate and professional in her approach. The final report showed the skills of a careful and discerning reader/editor and many of her thoughtful and well-articulated comments rang very true. She was prompt to answer my follow-on questions and I feel confident now that I know what direction I need to take to help develop my manuscript to the next level. Thank you Rebecca.

We originally sought out Rebecca because out of all of the editors […] who offered Query Letter Reviews she had the most experience with the suspense/thriller genre, and from the beginning she was enthusiastic, professional, and incredibly helpful in getting our submission package in its best shape. The accompanying line edit was also comprehensive, including so many suggestions we were able to utilize to improve and strengthen our manuscript. We feel so fortunate we got to work with Rebecca, would highly recommend her, and we absolutely would work with her again if we need an editor on a future project.
