“Rebecca, your passion, commitment, dedication, and guidance  in this journey has been so immense and unmatched. I would not have progressed with this book without your support. The Saturday evening sessions with you were such a blessing and, in some cases, so emotional that we had to take time out. You helped me dig into my soul. Thank you, Rebecca. I am indebted to you.”

“There were three editors I looked at as potential partners for a memoir manuscript I’d labored over for years, but Rebecca soon became the obvious and enthusiastic choice. It was hugely gratifying to hear that she GOT IT! I was actually astonished—it was like she could read my mind. Rebecca was the perfect person to entrust. Her deft touch, attention, and collaboration with this first-time author gave me confidence in the process. Rebecca truly is a master of her craft and I will be forever thankful for this experience working with her. The process has been life changing!”

My memoir had been simmering for a long time before I finally decided I needed help to bring my work to fruition. I contacted a few editors before talking to Rebecca. My intuition immediately told me I had found the right person to help. And that intuition was correct! Rebecca and her wonderful team of professionals helped me develop my story into the book that is now in print. The whole team was responsive and provided the support and encouragement I needed. I am very happy with my book, and I would highly recommend Rebecca and her expert team.

“I refer to Rebecca as my book midwife. I had been working on a draft in fits and starts for nearly eight years prior to meeting her. In the course of six short, focused, productive and tiring months I found myself with a completed draft ready for submissions. Rebecca provided direction when and where I got stuck and feedback to clarify and refine the quality and cohesiveness of my voice and my overall message. In short, not unlike the midwife who helped me birth my two small children, I could not have completed my memoir without her insightful and nurturing wisdom and perspective.”

“I could never have gotten this book across the finish line without the patient guidance and support of Rebecca. I felt an instant rapport with her and was so grateful that she fully understood my story of transformation from the very beginning. Her expertise was invaluable in helping me stitch my story together and refine the key messages. I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for an editor.”

“I use Rebecca for all my editing needs and have already referred several friends to her because the quality of her work is simply exceptional. I’ve used other editors in the past and nobody came close to the level of service she provides. You can see the dedication she has for her craft when you read through the review; Rebecca doesn’t simply focus on the grammatical aspect but also dives deep into flow and readability. When I need an exceptional editor, Rebecca is the first person that comes to mind.”

Rebecca transformed my book from a hodge podge of disjointed blog posts and podcast interviews into something I was proud to publish. I repeatedly experienced consistent, meticulous, high quality care through her edits. She cares deeply about her work, and it shows.”

“Working with Rebecca and her team at Duende Press was a supportive and generative experience.  Her insight and advice helped shape and complete my work. Almost from the first I trusted her experience and when I didn’t understand or concur with her view, there was no difficulty in resolving the matter. Best of all, I learned to appreciate my work through new eyes so that repeated editing and revision felt refreshing.  I would heartily recommend using Rebecca’s ability in content editing and proofing any text and I look forward to using her team in the future.”

“Rebecca is so fun and easy to work with! She gave me an outline for my book for me to customize according to my own message. It really helped keep me on track, and develop my ideas in ways that would be readable and marketable. She had great editing suggestions. I highly recommend her.”
