Overview

Since beginning this business eighteen years ago, I’ve edited many textbooks and professional books, but novels have been beckoning me lately, and I’ve copyedited nearly a hundred of them over the past couple of years. (We’re talking mainly light editing here—give me a bit more time per book if you need heavy or developmental editing or ghostwriting!) I just really want to read your story and get lost in how you tell it. I want to get my hands into it and mark it up—not because I hate it, but because I love it and I want to get deeply into your vision and roll around in it and be part of making it happen. And I want to be paid for doing it, too. I’m so spoiled. I love my job.

Every book is different. Every book is special. The editing process for every book is unique. Let’s talk about what will work for yours.

***
Rachel is a superbly talented, highly intelligent, and hardworking editor, with exceptional English language skills. Working with her is a pleasure. She follows instructions to the letter and maintains positive relationships with authors and clients. Recommended without reservation.
—Bill Bowers, author and editor at Bowers Editorial Services, 2012

Thanks to . . . Rachel Keith for meticulous copyediting.
—Nora Page, Read or Alive, 2020

To the copyeditor I know only as rsbk, which I am pretty sure stands for something like Really-Smart-Brilliant-all Knowledgeable because her attention to detail was both sensitive and relentless.
—Jane Willan, The Shadow of Death, 2018

As a managing editor, I came to rely heavily on Rachel's copyediting services. She is dependable, thorough, professional, and kind. She provides thorough feedback for the authors and has a keen eye for errors and areas in need of development. Rachel adheres to the assignment's parameters, from light copyedits to the more involved, developmental work; I knew I could always count on her. Rachel has my unreserved recommendation.
—Katie Moyer, former managing editor at W. W. Norton, 2015
