Testimonials

Rachel makes me look good. My newspaper articles went from good to great once Rachel took over. In some cases they needed to be shortened without losing clarity, and she really knew how to do that.

Rachel Small is a treasure. Her proofreading work on my guidance documentation and web copy was spot-on, and she was always friendly and approachable while ensuring clarity, accuracy and consistency. Even editors need fresh eyes on the words they write, and Rachel’s insightful suggestions and tactful comments made the process a joy. I highly, highly recommend her!

I loved working with Rachel Small. She was professional every step of the way, correcting my grammar and punctuation and giving me great notes on character, dialogue, and timeline. What I appreciated most was her availability after she’d completed her copy edit. Through email and phone, she was patient with my questions and gave me satisfying answers.

– Diana Stevan, Author

I’ve been the beneficiary of Rachel’s ongoing editing for over two years. My business book is essentially a collection of short stories, which means that Rachel has been able to edit it story by story as I’ve completed each one.

In my case, “editing” means the unenviable task of not only correcting my grammar and syntax, but also culling my verbosity. The excellence with which she achieves this speaks to her capabilities as an editor. After each edit I glow with pride as a cabinet maker might after an expert has polished his latest creation to give it the finish he couldn’t quite achieve himself.

Without doubt, the fact that this book is finally nearing completion is in no small measure due to Rachel’s editing skills, patience, and professionalism. I definitely couldn’t have done it without her.

I am very new to the world of writing. After doing some research and Googling “editors,” I was faced with a huge array of options. Rachel just seemed to stand out in the crowd, and I couldn’t have chosen any better. The biggest question I had was “Will anyone understand what I am writing?” Not only did she understand, she created exactly what I was looking for in a manuscript.

– Bob Chomany, Author

Rachel was insightful and gave great feedback and comments that helped me to produce an even better book.  All writers need a good editor, and Rachel is better than good – she is great!

– Lyle Nicholson, Author

Rachel’s talent for editing and keen attention to detail were apparent as she polished our Annual Reports. She is able to craft messages that reflect an organization’s overall vision, and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to create professional documents for a variety of readers.

– Michelle Preston, BC PSLS Central Office

Rachel was easy to work with and understanding of my needs. The editing she did was prompt, thorough and unobtrusive. Rachel seemed to intuitively comprehend what I was trying to achieve, and while she did not make any alterations to the story that I felt would alter or diminish the theme, her insights and recommendations helped me make vast improvements in the story’s overall clarity. I would highly recommend Rachel Small as an editor.

– Tadek Sampson, Author
