FREE EDIT OF YOUR FIRST 10 PAGES. SEND IT TODAY, GET FEEDBACK WITHIN A WEEK.
Are you lost in the gray area between a first draft and a finished draft? Do you need to breathe some life back into your writing project? Do you have an idea for a book you’ve always wanted to write?
I offer mentoring and editing for both fiction and non-fiction writers of all genres. I work with writers to support and guide them through any stage of writing a book, from generating ideas and getting organized, all the way through polishing the final draft and sending it out to agents and publishing houses.
As a result of being a dedicated, working writer myself, as an editor, I am committed to not only identifying problem areas in your work, but helping you figure out how to solve them from a writer's perspective.
Editing on individual chapters, partial or full manuscripts includes:
Editorial comments on a full length manuscript are anywhere from 15-40 pages in length and address problem areas on both a macro and micro level.
For those writers who have a portion or all of their text written, I offer a free edit of the first 10 pages so that the writer can determine if I am a good fit for his or her project.

The benefits of working with a writing coach:
"Rachel is an exceptionally talented novelist able to turn a beautifully poetic phrase. Along with this right-brained ability that allows her to offer keen observation and insight into your writing, she’s also skilled at left-brained critique. Rachel provides essential feedback on narrative arc, chapter structure, and the nuts-and-bolts process of writing a book. I’ve worked with Rachel for over two years and have been continually impressed with her as a colleague, critic, and instructor. I highly recommend her as a writing coach."
-Jean Weiss, award-winning journalist
"Rachel's laser-focused editing skills can take a writing project from good to great. She's adept at working with writers on fiction, non-fiction, flash fiction, short story, essay and more, and just might say the five or six things you need to finish your manuscript and get published."
