PRAISE FOR OUR EDITING

“Rachel Starr Thomson was an invaluable resource in writing my book. Not only did she provide expert technical help for my nonfiction work, but at my request she also offered helpful feedback regarding the book’s general approach, biblical and theological accuracy, and its structure that allowed it to reach my intended audience. Rachel was also personable, responsive, and supportive. My advice— employ Rachel early in your work and lean upon her to make your book the best possible!” – Mike Ayers, Chair, Leadership Studies and Professor at College of Biblical Studies-Houston. Author of Power to Lead: Five Essentials for Biblical Research

“As I was finishing up my first book manuscript, I knew it needed ‘something,’ but I didn’t know what that something was. Rachel nailed it with her ability to see the needed restructuring, additions to content and expert editing skills. She does her work quickly, yet it is of the highest quality. Not only is she good at her craft, she is personable, encouraging and easy to work with.” – Jacqueline Wallace, Author of Brokenness to Beauty, www.brokennesstobeauty.wordpress.com

“Rachel copyedited my book for me, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Her attention to detail saved my bacon, and it wasn’t all typos and hyphens. She identified weak points in the story structure as well as giving positive feedback. Rachel’s keen eyes caught name flips and discontinuities that I simply missed after having my nose in the manuscript for so long; small mistakes that can sink a book. My sincere gratitude for her help.” – W. Lawrence, author of Syncing Forward, www.syncingforward.com

“I used Rachel for all of my editing on my historical fiction novel, Hope in Hungnam. I was very pleased with the process and found her to be a real professional. As I moved through the process of publishing my book, Rachel adapted her services to my unique needs at the moment. She was very complete with her editing services, and was always punctual and met her time commitments. I can’t say enough about how pleasant the process was. I am absolutely confident Rachel added tremendous value to my finished product and I know my readers will appreciate her careful editing.” – David Watts, author of Hope in Hungnam www.hopeinhungnam.com

“Rachel read the book deeply—perhaps more deeply than anyone else—and knowing there was still time to make it better, she did that. What remains from this process we started together is a much stronger, more readable and more enjoyable adventure story with a richer plot, characters with texture and, well, more character and scenes that are more vivid. Rachel has a magic touch.” – Sam Batterman, author of Wayback and Maximal Reserve
