I loved working with Rachelle. She was sharp, fast, clear in her notes, and covered everything from little typos to bigger issues that would have been seriously embarrassing had we missed them and gone to print. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be using her editorial expertise on my next project.
It is a joy to work with Rachelle! She has a sharp eye for refining my sentences, maintaining my writing voice, and making the words in my book shine! I look forward to using Rachelle’s editing services in the future.
Kari SayersRachelle provided editing services for my self-help book that I was preparing to relaunch. She completed a thorough review of my manuscript in a very reasonable amount of time. Hiring Rachelle allowed me to have a fresh set of eyes on my work and her suggested edits worked perfectly for me.
It's been an amazing experience to have Rachelle work her magic on my blog posts. She refines my sentences and paragraphs into cohesive thoughts that are 10x better than before, and her feedback regarding intent and flow are invaluable! Already, Rachelle has saved me so much time editing my own work.
I’m so blessed to have worked with Rachelle! Her education shines in the way she combed through my story with care. Rachelle expertly balances critique with encouragement in a way that shows her heart for writers…and their future readers. Her engagement in my character’s lives and plight was only a testament of her commitment to the projects she takes on. Having her eyes on my manuscript not only gave me great ideas for sharpening up the details, but it also spurred me forward.

Rachelle is one of those people that I always want to be the first to read every blog post I write, every email sequence I draft. Not only is she quick to graciously notify me of the typos or stylistic inconsistencies she finds, but she is kind enough to tell me when I could explain something better or make a sentence read more smoothly. And even though Rachelle knows the grammar rules, she knows there is always a time and place to break them. I'm grateful for her attention to detail and her friendly editing style!
“It is a joy to work with Rachelle. Her skill and professionalism are top notch. I appreciate her attention not only to grammar, punctuation, and typos, but also to story details that weren’t consistent. Her eyes on my manuscript have definitely made it better than it was before. I highly recommend her work.”
