Meet Rachel! She is Owner and Editor at Steeped in Pages. Beta reading started as her hobby and has grown into a passion for helping authors see their novels through fresh eyes! Rachel is an avid reader and loves working with new and established authors to improve their stories throughout the writing process. She thoroughly enjoys reading your work and helping you to improve upon the story you’ve created.
Rachel loves all genres, but her favorite are mystery, psychological thriller, and self-improvement. She doesn’t have a favorite book; however, she recently read and highly recommends The Wayward Pines Series by Blake Crouch and The 7 1/2 Death of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton.
Rachel has been married to Bryant for ten years. They have two kids, an 8-year-old daughter, and a 5-year-old son. Bryant and Rachel are instilling a love of reading for their children and make learning a regular family activity. Other than immersing herself in stories, she enjoys being outdoors, traveling, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends.
Why should you hire her?
She’s always enjoyed reading. But it is more than just reading. She gets lost in stories. She connects to the characters and feels their happiness and sorrow. When a friend introduced Rachel to beta reading, she realized that she could read beautiful novels and use her passion for reading and writing, as well as her flair for editing to support her family.
She will delve into your story and tell you what she loves about your work. She will give you honest feedback about what could use improvement and will provide your manuscript with a pair of fresh eyes and a clear mind; to show you how your work can go from good to excellent.
