A Few of the Books I’ve Worked On
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
Gretel was exactly what I needed when I was writing my book. She swooped in in the middle of a highly uncertain time—it had come time for making edits to my book but there were some major shifts at my publishing house, and I wasn't getting the support I needed. She helped me to feel grounded and secure again. I was worried that she might judge how lost I felt in the process, but she absolutely did not and immediately made the process feel comfortable! Gretel knew exactly how to offer feedback in a way that was concise and made so much sense. She helped me to organize my thoughts and articulate them in a way that was much easier for a reader to grasp. I will be forever grateful for the work we did together. ~Elizabeth Earnshaw
