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.”

As a professional writer in Hollywood with thirty years of major motion pictures and network television series under my belt, I have worked with countless creative editors of my work of every level of experience and capability. Rebecca ranks in the top 1% of all of them. 

Rebecca takes an immediate personal attachment to the project while zeroing in on the author’s vision. While it is clear from every edit and note that she wants what YOU want for your work, Rebecca is bold in pointing out where your work strays from your overall intentions. 

Her grasp on style and practices, structure and punctuation are excellent. Her knowledge of what publishers expect and the desires of the public are pitch perfect. 

Rebecca is extraordinarily meticulous and thorough. This begins on page one and continues to the final period. Her stamina never flags and her dedication to her work and making your project the best it can be is a joy to experience. 

Rebecca is friendly, communicative, and utterly dependable. Her fees are reasonable, the equal of her work, and are worth every penny spent. 

I am looking forward to working with Rebecca again. Once you’ve found Ms. Millar you will never need or want another editor.

Rebecca’s work on my novel was fantastic. She challenged me to push and improve my book’s narrative and characters, as well as my writing in general. She is encouraging and supportive, and her notes and ideas were insightful, clear and well-judged. I can’t recommend her highly enough and hope to work with her in the future.
