Karen-- thank you so much for your edits and the two different versions...how thorough and professional! I am just so grateful for what you've given me. You're awesome!

Thanks, thanks, thanks. It flows so much better now. You turn sharp thoughts into softer ones. It's a secret you possess. I'm going to make it into a story and will re-send it. I'm lucky as heck to have you as an editor! - Julia G., Lansing, MI
Dear Renbourne editors,
Thank you so much for the grand job you did in editing Dangerous Seas for me. You really took me to school. I learned a lot. My writing is leaner and better already. Best of all my manuscript is ready for submission! You have boosted my confidence tremendously. I have come out of this experience with greater determination to finish the trilogy I have planned. I'll be back to ask you to assist me. Again, thank you. - Richard S., San Francisco, CA
I plan to continue hiring your editors, as soon as I finish the final chapters. Your help has been invaluable. - Jim R., Nashville, TN
I wanted to write to you and tell you the exciting news! Echoes of Pemberley has been picked up by a small press that specializes in Romance, Historic Fiction, and Pride and Prejudice sequels. They have offered me a good contract. The novel will be printed both in mass paperback and Ebook format. Needless to say I am extremely excited, but I couldn't have done it without you. The fact that the book was already edited gave me an edge above other submissions. I will keep you updated on release dates and such. Thank you again and The Renbourne Agency! - C.I. Hensley, Boston, MA
You did an excellent job paring the stories down, especially the memoir. I did review four of the six stories, and am learning the importance of toning down the imagery in order to stay on track with the story line. I certainly will use your services in the future! My best to you, Victor V., Los Angeles, CA
You're the closest I've ever come to seeing an editor at work. You are great!!
