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.”

Rebecca is a wonderful editor and has been instrumental in my writing process as a novice novelist. She guided me sensitively and incrementally to better understand my characters and situations, as well as helping me to develop a more engaging writing style. I’ve benefitted greatly from her suggestions and insights, and her feedback was always encouraging, even when pointing out flaws in my story. I really felt in safe hands, and that gave me the confidence to push myself and my manuscript much further than I would otherwise have done. I cannot recommend Rebecca highly enough!

Rebecca did an amazing edit on my first novel. She offered insightful, detailed and valuable feedback that took my story to the next level. The edit helped me develop my characters, plot, and structure. Rebecca open my eyes to issues I did not pick up on myself. Her knowledge and expertise in crime, suspense, mystery, and thriller genre helped pinpoint what was missing and needed to fit my genre specifically. I highly recommend Rebecca and I’m excited to use her service in the future.
