"Rachel Langley is an amazing editor. She has a heart for excellence and for people. She was patient with me and made sure my words flowed well. I appreciate how she offered suggestions and asked questions to clarify the information I was presenting. I plan to use Rachel for all my upcoming books."

Author of Help! Save Me From My Broken Heart
Although I'm just beginning my career as a freelance editor, I have been writing and editing my own work and the work of others for many years. I have a degree in communications and professional writing, and I love to help others make their writing the best that it can be, to help them express their stories in their unique voices.
I believe the most important thing for a successful editor-author relationship is communication. Therefore, below you will find an explanation of the services I offer, including what you should expect from me throughout the editing process.
I will need to do an initial review of your manuscript prior to accepting it. I'm happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement, but you will need to provide the form.
If I feel like your work is not ready for line editing, I may suggest you start with developmental editing or a rewrite.
If I accept your work, I will require a 50% deposit prior to beginning.
I will use Microsoft Word Track Changes to edit your work. It will be up to you to accept/reject those changes.
I am open to editing most types of writing and genres, but will not accept anything with graphic/explicit sexual content. If I'm not the right person to edit your work, I will be honest in telling you so.
