Rebecca provided great feedback in the developmental edit of my 50,000 word manuscript. Her two page report was thorough. Her notes in the margins of my manuscript were challenging, encouraging, and insightful. I was very happy she was the first person I connected with on this website. Great service at a reasonable price.
