“Rachel Newman’s constructive criticism was clearly presented in a spirit of cooperation and a desire to help me develop both my product and my craft. She exceeded my high expectations. I could not have asked for a more thoughtful, informed, or honest critique of my work.”

“Rachel Newman was amazing! She worked on a very controversial project with me and took me right out of my comfort zone. When I wanted to quit, she encouraged me to keep going. I couldn’t have finished this book without her!”

“For many years, it’s been my dream to publish. Finding an editor was a large question mark in that journey, and the length of time required to find the right editor was daunting. I needed an individual that would allow the message to remain as is, but make it the best it could be. Rachel Newman fills that need. I trust her to edit, to offer helpful critiques, and to turn my project into the best version possible—all without editing my voice or the message I want to share. She continually challenges my writing, making it better, and helping to draw the depth of what I am trying to communicate to the fore. She meets deadlines, schedules her time well, and responds promptly when I contact her. Without hesitation, I recommend her services.”

“Through working with different writing courses, critique groups, and editing services, I found that maintaining my authentic voice was the one thing that I wanted to control most of all. Rachel Newman not only learned my voice, but helped me to stay consistent with it throughout my novel. Her editing was spot-on in all the important aspects, while helping me stay true to the most important aspect—my story, in my voice. I was in no way prepared for the magnitude of her suggested revisions. Her attention to detail and breadth of knowledge drew things out of the text that I had not even considered. She has made both my writing and my novel stronger. If you are looking to hone your craft, and your story, the tools and expertise that Rachel brings to the table are invaluable. She is a professional on every level, yet works tirelessly as a true friend would. Your work will receive unparalleled attention and her editing WILL make it better. There is no doubt that Rachel’s editing will be attached to some of the best works to come. It is only a matter of time.”
