  1. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful help. I would have went absolutely insane if I had tried to format my book myself. You did a great job of working with me, answering my ten billion questions, and tweaking things until it was just right. I couldn't be happier with the service you provided and I will be a repeat customer when I am ready to have my next book formatted. Everything came out great, you handled everything professionally, never left me wondering where you were at in the process of formatting, and the results came out perfect.

    Anybody else looking to avoid formatting insanity, Clare can help.

  2. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your excellent formatting of Memory's Child. Even more, thank you for doing the reformatting when I needed t o correct typos and other errors I'd made in the text. You're a lifesaver!

  3. You get more for your money, that's for sure! Awesome, awesome work! Thanks sooo much for formatting ebook and paperback... and all the extra's you've done for me ;). And you'll get to do it all again soon! When OLAD is complete.
    Besty!

  4. I'm a pretty tech savvy person - but when it came to formatting my book - I had no freaking clue what to do - and I didn't have the time or the energy to figure it out! Clare did an amazing job on Whether I'll Live or Die for me and took all the stress out of making sure it was done correctly!

    Thank you Clare - you saved me on this - and I will happily come back for my next one!

  5. Excellent points of view, but I'm all for researching!

  6. I spent too much time trying to format properly. It was totally worth paying to have it done. Saved me the frustration and headache and I have a beautifully formatted product now. Less wasted time = more writing time for me. So glad your working on my upcoming novel to be published. You're a live saver, Clare!

  7. Love you girl! Some of your commentary and reactions were priceless...and quite refreshing after reading the same manuscript thirty times. A great Beta reader is so critical to the writing process, and I'm so glad to be able to have you on my side :)

  8. Yay! I should be jealous I don't have you all to myself anymore but that'd be selfish of me.

    Rachelle, you have a close eye for detail. As a junior editor, I don't know any other of my writing critique partners who pick up more errors than you do. Your clients will be lucky to have you working with them.

    Rest assured, I feel safe knowing Rachelle picks up the minutest (is that a word?) errors in my manuscripts, and you should feel safe in such good hands too!

  9. Never before have I met someone who takes their client's work so seriously. I came into my office this morning and, without my requesting it, I had a newly formatted file from Rachelle in my inbox. Apparently Amazon broke backwards compatibility so that when people upgrade to their latest KF8 software their old kindle files break. THANK GOODNESS for Rachelle!

    Your eye for detail and tireless concern for your clients does not go unnoticed. Thank you for having my back.

  10. Rachelle did such an amazing job on my book. It wasn't the easiest job either since I am such a beginner. She was so patient and kind with me. She really went above and beyond for me. Her prices are so reasonable. I can't imagine using anyone else! Thank you so much for your diligence and attention to detail. I appreciate all that you did.

  11. What an amazing job! Fast, accurate, and reasonable. Rachelle even made suggestions on a different font for my print book to save money on page count, which translates to higher profits going forward. Scent of Triumph never looked so good!

    Thank you, Rachelle, for your diligence and patience in correcting my difficult "haunted" manuscript. (I looked like that guy in the photo when I called you.) You're a real whiz! See you again soon for my next ebook and print editions.

  12. I thought I could format my ebook myself. Silly me! Rachelle came to my rescue, and saved me from pulling all my hair out! She did a wonderful job for a reasonable price, and my book looks great.

    Thanks so much Rachelle!

  17. Thank you so much for taking the stress off of me so close to publication! Using my fave program Scrivner had created nothing but a formatting headache and your swift service made it possible for me to let go, relax, and focus on other things that need to get done for release day! THANK YOU!!!

  18. OMG! Now I know who you are. Elena Dillon recommended you, but I hadn't realized you were also "Clare." I'm slow. I think she told me that a month ago. You did a great job on formatting my little PITCH PAL for Kindle and EPUB. I really appreciate your help. I will definitely use you again, Clare, er, Rachelle!
    Thank you!

  19. Rachelle you rock!! You are so good at what you do, so quick, so professional, so affordable. And best of all, you are so patient and clear answering all of my very clueless questions. Seriously, I am the one the IT Guys on the phone have to ask, "Did you turn your computer on, ma'am?" Yet now, thanks to you, I have very professional looking, and properly working e-books and a basic of understanding of how to use them with different sites and devices. Thanks!!!

  20. Clare, thanks so much for all the work you did on my novel. I certainly had you jumping through hoops and you were always very quick about getting back to me with changes that I made at the last minute. You're the best!

  23. I can't even begin to express my pleasure in working with Clare! What a breath of fresh air! Instead of waiting days upon days for basic e-mail communication and progress updates, Clare is on top of it! Clare has a demanding schedule of her own, yet makes me feel like I'm her most special and only customer--a rare find these days. Clare turns work around promptly and with beautiful results. I know that when I hand my manuscript off, I will receive excellent quality for a very reasonable price. Thank you again for your hard work!

  24. Rachelle is wonderful to work with, especially if you're technology-challenged like me. She has a lot of a patience and does a great job at a reasonable price. Highly recommend her services.

  25. Rachelle sent my book back formatted .mobi style in no time, a day to be exact. I wasn't expecting it so soon. When I opened it I was happy with the results. There were no awkward spaces between the words. It's something see often when browsing books. I recommend Rachelle's services before publishing your book.

  27. Rachelle formatted both the print and ebook versions of my novel. Since I am completely tech illiterate, my attempts to be helpful were completely not that, yet Rachelle handled the project with patience, professionalism, and unbelievably fast turnaround time. I recommend her to everyone and will be back with my next book.
