Testimonials

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.

Simon McCleave, bestselling crime author of DI Ruth Hunter series

Rebecca provided a very professional, clear and friendly service, with razor sharp insights to help develop my novel. In particular her input regarding structure and methods to develop the emotional connection between reader and protagonist have been invaluable, not only for this manuscript, but for future work. I would highly recommend.

Brid Cummings, suspense author

Rebecca is a brilliant editor – smart and intuitive with excellent attention to detail. She is reliable, a good communicator and a pleasure to collaborate with. I highly recommend working with her.

Emily Griffin, Publishing Director, Century and Arrow Publishing

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.

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.

John Hoda, detective fiction author

Rebecca was a dream to work with. Friendly and professional, she was also communicative and flexible with my changing project needs. I highly value the services she offered and her editorial feedback went beyond what I expected. Will definitely work with her again.

Elena Kaufman, thriller author

Rebecca has been an incredible partner! Highly recommended.

Rolly Bastard, thriller author

Rebecca did a wonderful job on the edit of my novella, PLAYOUT. From the moment I read her sample edit I knew she understood both me as a writer and the nuances of my characters. One of the aspects I like the most about Rebecca’s work is that she provides fair and positive feedback that allows me to develop my own style rather than a ‘one style fits all’ situation. 

I highly recommend her work, in fact, I’ve already booked Rebecca for my next book later this year.

Mark Mannock, action/thriller author

My most important requirement when finding an editor, was to find someone who understands writers who lack confidence. Rebecca put me at ease every step of the way. I will always recommend her, and would happily work with her again.

Terri Lauri, historical crime author

Rebecca’s attention to detail really impressed me. From my clumsy mistakes to big issues of style, she engaged with them all and helped me get my query letter package ready for submission. I’ll be back with the next novel …

JD Murphy, crime author

Rebecca provided an excellent copy edit. Her feedback was very insightful, allowing me to strengthen my novel. She maintained great communication, answered all questions that I had, and she even delivered ahead of schedule. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Thriller Author

I’d hit a wall with my first manuscript. I knew it needed work but as a writer who hadn’t ever written a full manuscript before, I didn’t know what, or how, to make improvements. When I received Rebecca’s editorial assessment, I had the clarification I’d been seeking! Her report was comprehensive, clear and spot-on, highlighting the areas I’d suspected needed work and also things I hadn’t thought of. I would recommend Rebecca’s services to any writer and look forward to working with her again.

Alyssa Mackay, psychological thriller author

It’s my first time publishing a book, and I couldn’t have picked a better editor. Rebecca has been very good at communicating things that need changing. She speaks professionally; very encouraging and supportive. She’s thorough, and she delivers ahead of time. I highly recommend Rebecca, and I hope to work with her again in the future.

Working with Rebecca has been an absolute pleasure. She stays in contact, exudes enthusiasm, and has provided an insightful and detailed assessment of my manuscript — with pages of suggestions that I continue to work through as I edit my work. I would highly recommend her services.

Jo Dixon, psychological/domestic thriller author

Ms. Millar is not only consummately professional, her friendly consideration and approach offers excellent guidance and encouragement. As my writing/publishing needs grow, she will be first on my list for consultation.
