It was a blessing to have Rae as an editor. Her love of reading was apparent through the knowledge and wisdom that she imparted on my manuscript. From character development to plot holes, Rae handled every sentence with care. She gave me the brutal truth, but with a compassionate tinge. She even championed me when I felt like my manuscript was a total mess. It was because of her that my scattered thoughts became a story. All in all, totally recommend. 

– E. S. Danon; Author of Moon in Bastet

Raven gave me the confidence to start final improvements on my manuscript. She was in tune with my themes and my ideas and her comments and edits were spot on. I enjoyed working with her and couldn’t wait to get feedback because she maintained an encouraging editing style while providing constructive criticism. If you’re now thinking about using her services, you’re already moving in the right direction.

– Baxter Bramatti

“Rae’s comprehensive evaluation of my manuscript was far more than I expected. After digesting her detailed feedback, I was re-energized to revise my work. No paragraph or sentence went untouched. Every line I wrote was carefully scrutinized with helpful suggestions and comments. I appreciate and respect her honest and straightforward approach. She called out all my strong points as well as my weak ones. This left me inspired to pick up my own editing pen with a more precise sense of purpose. Since then my characters have become better developed with a far more dynamic world than before.

I look forward to working with Rae on the many books I have yet to write.”

– Chris J. Grevemberg
