“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.”

I wasn’t convinced I needed Rebecca at first [but] not only did she help me craft the book proposal, her edits of the first three chapters of the manuscript were eye-opening. She uncovered a whole raft of opportunities to sharpen the manuscript and made a material improvement on the story. Her comments were thoughtful, sensitive, directional and, upon reflection, imperative to the story. Add to this her communication through the process and the fact she delivered the work ahead of an agreed deadline… I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Rebecca and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Great job! Exceeded expectations! Gave me actionable advice not only for this manuscript but also as a template when I am working on future rough drafts. She clearly spelled everything out during our entire engagement.
