Rebecca Millar Editorial is a bespoke editing service for writers at all stages of the editorial process. 

With nearly five years’ experience in the commercial publishing industry, working with household names as well as debut authors, I have expertise in all levels of editing including structural editing, copy-editing and proofreading, across both fiction and non-fiction. Specialising in crime and thriller, I’m always excited to hear about new projects, so whether you just have a spark of an idea or have already written your first manuscript, get in touch about how I can help you on the next stage of your writing journey.

The world is full of stories, and the best part of being an editor is helping people to find their voices on the page and create captivating writing, whether that be an inspiring memoir or race-against-time thriller.

Together, let’s make your manuscript the best it can be.

Simon McCleave The Snowdonia Killings

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.”

When I invited collaborations, I had several very good offers but Rebecca was the only one who asked me some questions first, about how long I had been working on the manuscript and what stage I felt I had reached. This is why I decided to go with her, as she seemed to be thinking more widely about the whole project and what type of edit would be best for me. Our communications were very straightforward, I was kept up to date the whole time and the final report was delivered a little ahead of schedule.  

There was plenty of detailed feedback, some of which I agreed with, some I didn’t, but then that is the point of getting a second opinion – it enables you to look at your work from someone else’s perspective, and to ask yourself questions about how it holds up. I would certainly recommend Rebecca to anyone else who is looking to take a step forward with their work.

I worked with Rebecca on the novel Angel Maker, and was drawn to her due to her experience with the genre, as well as her immediate enthusiasm for the project! It’s always great to work with someone that you feel, as a writer, is passionate about both their work, and the book they’re working on. With Rebecca, things felt easy…
