Every writer needs an editor: someone who can see the gold and trim the dross. You cannot find a better one than Gretel.

~Rami Shapiro

Gretel is indispensable for any book project I do. From helping me organize my proposal, to giving the best and most actionable feedback, I simply would not write a book without her input! My most recent book was about to hit the burn pile, but Gretel insisted it was worth continuing. Not only did her help lead to me finding a wonderful publisher, but also to create a powerful book that will help many people. 

~ Lauren Walker

 

Gretel’s feedback was invaluable in refining my message to bring more objective clarity to my writing, attuning to the likely questions readers would have while never asking me to dumb down. Ultimately, her suggestions made my book on a very subtle subject more substantial and meaningful to more people. Gretel has a refined capacity to laser in on what is and is not working, and to offer practical suggestions that are always in service to the work, as well as sensitive to the writer.
~ Miranda MacPherson

Gretel will help you craft a winner of a book.  You will feel so confident about what you are presenting to the world. She really enhanced, instead of damped, my voice. I’m told consistently that reading my book feels like having a conversation with me, like I’m there in the room with the reader, and this is in many ways a testament to Gretel helping bring my writing into high def.

~ Sherrie All, PhD

Gretel is sharp, understands what we are trying to do, and helps us do it. She considers the experience of the reader, and this is all done with a respectful and curious attitude that is a pleasure.

~ Sally Winston
