Kind words from the writers I’ve coached

Here’s what Frances had to say:

Rachel gave me a clear, thorough overview and understanding of my work with a focused picture on areas that need further work with detailed notes on where that was required and why.

It was an excellent road map and I could see immediately what I had to do. I wish I had sent her my manuscript earlier.

Rachel could see what wasn’t quite there yet and gave me the confidence and inspiration to finish.

The best thing to do is book a Discovery Call to tell me all about your novel.

Book a Discovery Call

Here’s what Jenn had to say:

Working with Rachel over the last three months has given me many things, but to put it succinctly:

I now have a flashlight to help guide me along the path to publishing whereas before I couldn’t see past my nose, all thanks to her coaching me how to plan.

Rachel’s brainstorming and researching coaching, as well as encouragement, helped me in taking something from initial idea to full concept.

Having someone who is a bit further along the path than me hold space and coach me through my writing concerns meant I felt supported and guided without feeling like an amateur.
